The update on the parallette building from yesterday is not a good one with our first attempts not quite working to plan. Back to the drawing board on that one. I did however have a nice 6k morning walk for some cardio and did some unsupported headstands.
Today was a great workout; I felt strong for the bench press (although my wrists were a little sore from the rings still) and had no problem hitting all the prescribed weights.
5 x 28kg
5 x 35kg
3 x 42kg
5 x 46kg
5 x 53kg
5 x 60kg
5 x 10 x 38kg
5 x 10 x 24kg
I decided to have a play about with some more headstands after the main workout, as I could use one of the big mats in the studio to help break any falls. Getting up into and holding a headstand is getting easier and I am happy holding the position for a good amount of time (I really should count to see how long). After messing about with the headstands I figured a wall supported handstand could be a good idea. As I was shimmying back to the wall on my hands I realised I was able to hold my weight on one arm so thought I would see if I could…
And apparently I can!
After handstands I worked on my L-Sit. I am trying to keep my hips up but cannot do that with both legs straight so worked on just holding the position and then putting out one foot at a time. Since getting home I have been upside down a lot – I could be addicted
Next step is to get my handstand away from the wall on two hands. I need to walk before I run…
