Saturday: They started an Olymic lifting specfic training class at my gym and we spent the entire class perfecting form on snatches using just a PVC pipe. I spent a good 30 mins afterwards practising snatches @ 65 lbs and alternating ring dips and pullups. I did maybe 40 of each.

Sunday: worked out at my house, did two workouts over the course of the day of hindu pushups, handstand pushups, back bridges, and weighted dumbell squats/shoulder raises/bicep curls. I did 10 handstand pushups in one go which was a personal best. I also sprinted in the rain for >.5 miles (with lots of resting/walking of course). I've never had much desire for running, but my goal now is to run that distance bettween my appartment and workspace in under 4 minutes (which seems very reasonable).

Today will be back squats and apparently a ton of tabata air squats, joy.

Yesterday:

150 push-ups
600 sit-ups
100 1/2 bridges
300 squats


lite cardio & lite weight

Today:

I'll keep it light...probably a couple of rounds on the heavy bag and then hit the bar for chins & pulls. 50 of each unless I'm feeling real good, in which case I'll do more.

====EDIT====

Changed my mind...

100 dips
200 reverse sits
350 calf raises

lite weight & cardio

No heavy bag today, but I might do a PM workout to get the chins & pulls.

I only do short strength training workouts now because of martial arts, but it's short and gets to the point. I follow the principles of William Wong's minimalistic training. Here's what I do

15 minute testosterone optimizing workout routine

mon @ 10:15am- 10:35
Weighted Pull up          3x5/6/7
Overhead Press                 3x5/6/7
Rope Climbing
Wednesday @ 10:15-10:35
Squat                3x5/6/7
1 leg leg press            3x10
Thurs @ 11:15am-11:35
Weighted Dip            3x5/6/7
Weighted Chin                 3x5/6/7
Rope Climbing


no more than 20 minute workouts
exercises are paired, with no more than 1 min rest

As for all of you who do only body weight exercises, do you notice any difference in size with all the pushups? Strength? I always thought of them as more of an endurance exercise. Can someone explain to me why at 175 lb I can do strict form, parallel at the elbow dips with 120 lb dumbell, and bench 300 (Dont get me wrong, bench is stupid), but cant do more than 50 pushups in a row? this always frustrated me.

I noticed a huge difference in all upper body exercises and muscle gain when I included rope climbing, IMO with no feet it is even better than pull ups.

Thanx for the link, Sully!

Pioneer - I tend to agree. I don't notice much size difference nor much strength difference from regular push-ups. Benching is certainly a better way to increase size & strength. That said, I have a pal who does all manner of push-ups variations (often up on stands), and he swears by them, provided you do lower reps with LOTS of variations per day.

Today was light:

5 sets on Total Gym
250 calf raises
150 squats
50 pull-ups
50 chin-ups
lite cardio


I plan to increase cardio soon.

Haven't got my workout in yet today (will be some martial arts).

But to reply to pioneer, I did benches and push ups in the past. Both are a bit different. Push-ups work more muscles (abs etc.). I actually don't do either of them anymore though. Only body weight I do is holding my body when doing a concentration curl (floored or standing). Also once a week climbing trees and stuff in the park.

climbing trees,
climbing on top of jungle gyms, and walking across beams and monkey bars for balance
walking, running
wrist roller
grappling submissions with a tiger (stuffed animal). Armbars, chokes, and kimuras etc etc. No resistance but helps me get the feel for the submissions.

deadlift 20x100-150kg (progressing through the sets with more weight for each set. sets are variable)
lat pulldowns 30x80-110kg
Lower back 30x100-120kg
Rows 20x50-75kg
seated dumbbell presses 30x14-20kg
seated lats 20x14-20kg

This takes 35-45 mins as I keep breaks very short. Mostly just the time it takes to adjust the weight. I have a back and shoulder injury that prevents me from going nuts with weight when my shoulders are involved. So that kind of sets the pace for all my workout atm.

You're a cutie, Sully! (For those who might think otherwise, "cutie" is a favorable compliment.)

@cinna Haha, thanks. ;) Heh, maybe I will post a video about it. It really helps me with my grappling (although I may look like a retard, or like you said, cute). Its like cuddling a stuff animal in disguise. Maybe I just need a hug (seriously). JK

-pulling tire (weights inside) with rope, walking backwards
-8lb weight, doing a hammering motion on floored cushion with pad (similar to whacking a hammer repeatedly)
-resistance band curls
-wrist roller
