sylph gets back to basics

Recommended Posts

There is quite a sturdy rumor that my circus gym will be re-opening some time in July. I've been in and out of a fitness-funk for the last 8 months while they've been closed/relocating so it's time to see if I can be in some kind of decent shape once I can get back to class.


Lift weights

My old faithful push/pull/legs split

3x/week, please!

15 workouts total


Core progressions

So much about being in the air is reliant on core strength. I am sure mine is not where it was 8 months ago, so lets work on that.

Hollow body holds, floor tucks (no idea what to call these, really, but it's mimicking an aerial inversion on the ground) and maybe the ab wheel will be the cornerstone of this work. 


10 core sessions



When I don't have class, I am terrible at this. I think I can count on one hand the times I've had any kind of stretching session since November. Sigh. Setting the bar low, here.


5 stretch sessions


Sun salutations

A few challenges back, I made an effort to start each day with a few (5-ish) sun salutations. I quite liked it, really and I'd like to get back to it. With a little room for error/forgetfulness.


25 mornings of greeting the sun



No theme, no fancy formatting, no distractions.

Just work.

Oh, I sure hope so. It's been really tied to my fitness mojo.

Also I did some ab wheeling on Monday. I still have DOMS. 


Nice wooork.

I had almost forgotten how epic DOMS can be.  Almost.

Unrelated to anything, I'm knitting my first sock ever. Cuff and leg are finished. Turned the heel last night and next step is to pick up stitches for the gusset. It's kind of actually looking like a sock! Woo!
