15m version of Resilience - Legs, Shoulders, and Back 🚀

I don't remember ever attempting a Peacock Squat before, but I love it! This feels like an actually accessible way to move towards single-leg squats. I can't go terribly deep with it, but my balance seems pretty solid which was a nice surprise. 

I skipped the Arm Swing in Prep because that range of motion is particularly hypermobile and injury-prone for me, so I did extra Quadruped Shoulder Circles there - didn't realize that Shoulder Circles would come up again in Practice. Cool, though, since I really like those and my shoulders definitely appreciate them. 


Prep
→ Resilience Kneeling Back Flexion to Prone Lying Back Extension
Single Arm Swing Side To Side Quadruped Shoulder Circles
→ Seiza to Sumo Squat
 

Practice

45m version of Elements - Straight Leg Frogger and Crab to Bear to Frogger Transition 🚀
 

Straight Leg Frogger was particularly difficult today. When I tried to do it as a Toe Pull as shown in the demo, I got cramps in my quadriceps - both legs - so I reverted to doing them with hops.  In the Crab Flow, I tried Verity's "Twiddly Legs" maneuver but that was a bit too much twisting and made my left knee unhappy so I stuck with F&B, R&L, Swing Set, and 3-Point Bridge.

30m version of Elements - Spiderman Knee Float and Monkey 180 🚀
 

I did it! I actually did the Spiderman Knee Float! I definitely could not do this movement the last time I went through Elements. I'm not getting very low yet, but I've got the hang of the weight shift now. 
 

Monkey 180 is still hard. Doing it the way Ryan coaches it in the demo (placing the hand in direct line with feet) is really rough on my wrists - but if I reach back further, as Rose did in one of the E-live sessions, I can do it. It looks rough, but I can do it.

30m version of Resilience - Ankles, Shoulders, and Core 🚀
 

Some of my favorite movements. I feel pretty strong in the Blade Squat - still weaker on the left, and I can pretty regularly feel that 'don't go beyond this, here be dragons' point from where that ankle has been sprained so many times, but I went nice and slow and did no harm and probably some good. 
 

The Cross Body Knee Touch is challenging, but more for my balance than for my core strength. I have to go verrrryy slow in either the A-Frame or the Plank to maintain control and not wobble. 

Shoulder Circles feel great, as always.

Are you doing Elements and Resilience on the same day? Is resilience move of recovery or actual workout? I've been using Floor Loco on rest days for some movement and was wondering about doing resilience when I'm finished with Floor Loco.

I'm generally alternating, using Resilience as my 'active recovery' work on elemental rest days.  I used to use the Recovery sessions for that - also great - but what I need most right now is strengthening around my hypermobile injury-prone joints and Resilience meets that need perfectly.  

 

How are you liking Floor Loco? I bought it but haven't used it yet.

Thanks, that is helpful. Resilience sounds like what I need in my recovery days too.  

 

Floor Loco is super fun. You learn movements, and then work them into flows. I think it does of good job of keeping me mobile, and like you said strengthening around the joints. I find that when I do GMB work, I am a lot less prone to injury.

30m version of Elements - Straight Leg Frogger and Frogger to Crab Transition 🚀

Probably took too many days off in the transition back to normal workdays, fatigue seemed a bit more than my usual; need to sort exactly how I am going to fit this in on mornings when I need to shower and get to the office. Really liking this Frogger to Crab, which is really just a partial Around the World, I think I am getting stronger at that. Straight Leg Frogger is still really challenging but socks on a hard floor and having just a slight bend at the knee helped a lot.

The Floor Pulls have definitely gotten better since the last time I did them. All of this felt really good today, with no shoulder pain at all. R wrist got a bit cranky at one point as I was moving hands and knees further from each other in the Plank on Hand Blades, but I pulled it back an inch and it was fine.

Still really enjoying the feeling of being able to do both of these movements. I experimented with my hand placement in the Monkey 180 and found that I can get it closer to being 'in line' with my L wrist than my R, so I'll put a little more focus on strength there.

5m version of Elements - High Frogger Prep and Bear to Crab Transition 🚀

 

That was interesting. I don't remember these Frogger movements from my last round of Elements. The High Frogger to Crab Combination was five shades of impossible - I tried several things to bring it down to merely difficult, what I wound up with was going back to the High Frogger Isometric and then adding the Leg Thread in place of the isometric hold at the end. Everything that I tried with any kind of jump turned out to be a terrible idea for either wrist or knees, I just don't have the motor control to land that smoothly yet. 

 

The up side is that I really did enjoy that High Frogger Isometric, that seems like a completely accessible thing to work towards!

45m version of Floor Loco - Let's Roll This Thing Out 🚀
 

That was hilarious! I really didn't think I was ready for this but I've been dying to give it a shot anyway - now I wish that I had video recorded it, because whenever I get to the point where I can actually do any of these things it would be so much fun to compare to today's blooper reel.
 

I'm really glad I had time today to set this for the 45 minute session. If the Practice and Play times had been any shorter I would not have gotten even close to 'getting' either of these movements and I would have ended up really frustrated instead of laughing at myself. 
 

It took half of the practice time on the Side Roll just to figure out what to do with my feet to get up into a Plow - to get onto my shoulders instead of rolling up onto the top of my head. I finally had to *start* in Plow and go on over and then reverse-engineer it from there, and I spent a lot of the remaining practice time in Plow just walking my feet back and forth from one 'over-center' point to the other to try and get a little bit of muscle memory for the middle of this movement pattern. 
 

The combo was a case study in physical comedy. In my first several attempts I was trying to Scorpion out of the Spiderman with the wrong leg! Started to get frustrated, so I watched a few reps of the demo loop before my light bulb 💡began to glow (dimly) and I switched feet/hand movements at the start. That helped, but ... wow.  This is a good place for that famous Jake the Dog quote: "Dude, suckin' at something is the first step towards bein' sorta good at something." 
 

Also, I'm glad I didn't eat first. I need to take some time to just get used to rolling around on the floor, because I started to get nauseated and had to stop and get a ginger ale part way through the Play segment.

That was much better than the first time I tried this. "Beginner's Mind" FTW. :D  I'm pretty stiff from travel to Warrenton, but this was a good 'ease back into routine' session. 

 

Need considerable work on balance, especially on R leg. The Pulling Prep is not as awful as I remembered it, I think when I went through this the first time I was trying to make that movement way too big. I'm pretty happy with my progress on Twisting Bear and on A-Frame Pulses.

15m version of Integral Strength - Stall Step Back, Chin-Up, and Superset 🚀

 

Negative Chin Ups are the bane of my existence. I still can't jump to the top position, have to use a step stool to get there.  My balance was extra off today in the Step Back Lunge. Bent Arm A-Frame is feeling much better, so is the Mountain Climber. The Seated Leg Lift wasn't too bad but if I squeeze too much trying to keep the working leg locked out I am still prone to some cramping in the quadricep.

This may seem a little random, but I just thought I'd share that I've taken inspiration from your hilarious video on how to do a "dog assisted twisted bear" and have made it a point to get down on the floor and move on all fours for at least a few minutes every evening. I make sure to alternate between bending and extending arms nd legs for variety, and to move in all directions, not just forward. 

 

My Happy Sidekick alternates between thinking this means I've finally lost my mind, and thinking this is an awesome fun game to play, but she leans towards the latter most evenings, so we have fun crab-bear-monkey-frog crawling across the floor together. 

 

And since I started doing this, my tendonitis wrist is stronger and hurts less, and my ankles have much better range of motion, so I'm going to keep doing it. Thank you for bringing fun floor animals into my life :)

I was going to attempt another session of Floor Loco today, but the weather is just too nice for that. Instead, I spent 15 minutes in my "outside gym" alternating between hitting a tractor tire with an 8# sledgehammer and playing with my new rings - randomly swinging, pulling prep, and German hang.

These felt good. The Sumo Walk was a little smoother than it used to be, and I could feel my lats more in the Swimmers.

Yesterday had very poor sleep night prior and couldn’t coerce myself into an IS session, so I did some Prep movements and then spent about 10 minutes alternating pushups (on parallettes), pulling prep, reverse rows, and a beginner version of the reverse row sitback.

 

Today - 

15m version of Integral Strength - Bent Arm A-Frame, Mt. Climbers, and Circuit 🚀

 

That was a really good session. I did much better with the loaded Bent Arm A-Frame than I have before, and my balance is definitely improved in the Bent Leg Back Scale and in the Step Back Lunge.  I didn't use a stepladder this time for the Bar Jump - I still can't jump all the way to having my chin above the bar, but it is at least halfway. I paid a lot of attention to my elbow position and didn't put any painful strain on them. Negative Chin Ups are still fast but feel like I have at least a little bit of control.
