Norgaard: Flipping the pancakes upside down


Norgaard

Recommended Posts

So last challenge I got sick and missed more than half of it. This time we turn things around, or try to ;)

 

As usually I start today monday, and end sunday in 4 weeks (the sunday start mess things up for me :D

 

Again I changed the goals up a bit to reflect more what works best for me.

 

 

Lifestyle:

G1: Focused exams study time: So around the end of this challenge I have 3 exams lined up, and I need to focus on them.

3/5 weekdays I need to allocate 1 hour of priories study time (no phones // tv anything to interrupt.

and 1 weekend day I double up to 2 hours.

 

Fitness:

G1: Daily handstand (at least 5 attempts pr day

G2: pike/head2toe//SSGM 5 times pr week

G3: 10 minute of hip openers 5 times pr week ( Weighted butterfly/frog pose/pancake/cossaq squat)

G4: Nail a set of 3 tuck to tucked shoulder stand to tuck on the rings.

(I have struggled a lot with those, going fine reverse but its hard from the tuck to the t.shoulderstand. However I seemed to crack the code on the last 2 trainings, and hope it keeps going like that. If I get this in good time then im working to improving the hight of the rings.

 

W1:

0/3 Weekday study

0/1 Weekend study

Hello again! Looks like another solid challenge, and good luck with the exams! May I ask what the SSGM fitness goal is? I'm not familiar with that.

 

Following for the awesomeness!

SSGM = Stride stand good morning. 

Almost like a single leg good morning, but the back foot is just slightly supported.

What do you do for the handstand?  Kick up to a wall/wall walk/freestanding?

 

Well depend if I got time or just fooling around.

 

If I fool around I either kick up with my back against the wall and play around, or kicking up freestanding to try to get balance.

 

If Im doing a propper session I use the majority of the time with cartwheeling into a handstand with chest against the wall and work from there :).

Here is the first attempt of the 3 reps tuck to tuck shoulder stand.

 

These are progressing nice atm!

 

I was able to do 1 rep first workout after the new year, but that was all luck and haven't been able to make one till last week. However then I got 2 in a row, and today almost 3.

 

However it as you can see need a lot of cleaning up :)

Nice work, that is impressive! You might see that it needs cleaning up, but don't discount the fact that you can actually do them.

 

I dont! im very happy about it, but I can't wait to see how they look at the end of the challenge :)

No time like the present to catchup! Even if you do 5 minutes today, it's still 5 minutes more than you had before. You've got this!

 

yeah I need to rewrite the goal for next week as well, because we are at an internship thing right now there  we have to do home assignment, so Ive done like 8 hours of things, but just not purely exams :)

good luck catching up on your studies this weekend!

 

yes that would have been so much easier I caught up most of it but not all :(

 

anyway did again 2,5 of the tuck to tuck shoulder stand, however the rings was set up higher than usually, which freaked me out at first ;)

Nice work! That is a significant distance higher than before. Did that contribute mentally to the difficulty of the shoulderstands? 

 

well at first yes, however, I finally "unlocked" the move, so it actually didn't feel more difficult to be higher up, which I thought it would

Thanks, hopefully it will look great at the end of the challenge!

 

However I did a ring workout yesterday, and I wasn't probably hydrated and haven't eaten enough, only managed two reps and those was a struggle!!

 

the hip work is slowly getting there, I have a strain or something similar in the crotch area around my adductors, so for a long time I haven't been able to do much, but I slowly getting some ROM back which is awesome!!!.

 

I need to focus more on my handstands the next week - this week I've just been kicking up for the 5 dailies just to cross it off :(

god damn im so bad at updating this.

 

So I haven't got to study as much as I liked last week, but we just got the cases for the exams, so hopefully I will be a very good study boy and get these exams down.

 

have 3 exams the next few weeks :).

 

The hip and forward fold + handstand work goes well :)

Still have pain when doing to much lateral rotation of the right hip :( I want that to go away!

You'll get there! Be patient with yourself, pain and stretching takes some time. Good luck on the exams, sounds like it's going to be a busy week. You've got this!

So short update.

 

Studying have been good so far. I clocked in at least 2 hours pr day the entire week.

 

The training have suffered though.

 

I have been limbering a bit myself in the 3 yoga classes I teach, and then I done soe hip motions, but not very structured. Not enough sleep and food have given a bad ring workout :( but Ill try again tomorrow :)
