thanks

it didn't seem to do significant internal damage. Some bruising on the outer muscle and spine maybe. Don't have that much fat to make a cushy fall so either I got lucky or somehow my reflexes or build have done me some non-cosmetic and functional good. heh heh.

I had scarring on my arms too that is almost gone in a week.

fun:
spiderman stretches
10 box jumps @ 42"
10 deadlifts at 225 lb
1 powerclean and 7 front squats @135lb
8 overhead squats at 65 lb
15 closegrip sidewaygrip pullups
7 split rope pully curls from the floor @ 95 lb plates
5 minutes perpetual rope pulldown @ hardest setting
15 2-hand kettlebell swings @ 20 kg
foam roll and backbridges

5 @ 205 lb flat bench
10 @ 105 lb incline
10 @ 90 lb overhead press
10 pulley flies @ some heavyplates or other. immediately after (still burned):
5 pulley flies sitting down @ 200 lb, 5 more right after @ 150
10 front squat @ 110 lb
10 overhead squat with 45 lb bar
10 @ 75 lb split-rope pulldown
15 @ 335 lb standing calf press

2 sets foam rolling [side, back, front legs] with 20 close grip pushups each while doing the front legs.

Awesome. I didn't know your injury prevented you from playing. If so, glad that is finally fixed up.

---

I didnt participate in your 'challange'  post, but I think i'm going to set some workout goals. I finally am able to hit the power cleans with two 45 plates (135 lbs). I'm going to try to work up my overhead press to the same weight so I can do a fast circuit of deadlifts (2:45s or 225lb), then take off the two plates and do cleans, press, thursters, front squat..finishing with pullups or something. all in the same setup with around 10-15 reps or so. When I can do that...i'll have my first workout video  O0


the real challenge will be press. seems to be a difficult exercise to get much gains on. even just that extra 20 lbs...

No, no - it didn't stop me from playing guitar, it stopped me from hitting my punching bag. I'd be in real trouble if I couldn't play guitar (other than music, I'm not qualified to do much).

Waiting on the vid!!!!

Thursday:

3 sets Total Gym
200 push-ups
200 sit-ups
200 squats
weight work
(total body...25 minutes)

About 40 minutes total...no breaks at all.

Hi,
My workout is usually pretty much the same every time.

50 pushups
max pullups (14)
max handstand pushups (5)
1 minute rest
max pullups (12)
max handstand pushups (4)

30 situps
30 twisting crunches (30 each side)
30 side bends (30 each side)

Lots of running

Wrist is a bit buggered right now so no handstand pushups right now. I'm keen to start trying a lot of variations of exercises over the next while.
SkinnyDevil, whats your max pullups when rested? My current goal is 20.

Cheers

Rockin' work-out, man!

Tops for me is 41 pulls and 40 chins. But that was a few years back (I tried to do 44 on my 44th birthday, but not only fell short a few chins, but my form was pretty dismal).

My form is cleaned up quite a bit, but the most I've done this year in a single stretch is about 25 during a face-to-face pull-up challenge.

Nice!
I always go down til my arms are straight and then put my chin over at the top.
Have you tried the handstand pushup? I can't balance (yet) so I just kick up against a wall...
