My chest and arms are a bit sore today, which is actually a good thing being that you don’t get stronger if you don’t push yourself. I expected to be more sore than I am,but my push-ups from last week had already got the soreness ball rolling.
It’s Tuesday which means it’s Stretching and Calisthenics day. One of the better parts of my routine is I have all the equipment I need right at home, my body. No need to go to the gym or anywhere else.
In keeping with pushing myself I went back to doing all five sets of the moves I did last week and I reintroduced the Round House Kicks, but only two sets of ten.
So here is what I did so far today,
Standing Bicycle Crunch Four sets of eight. Horse Stance Cross Punch Four sets of eight. Oblique Knee Raise Four sets of eight. Front Kick Four sets of eight. Leaning Knee Raise Four sets of eight. Round House Kick Two sets of eight. Front Kick Four sets of eight. Back Kick Four sets of eight. Body Weight Squats Two sets of ten.
Nothing Earth shattering, just keeping on keeping on. I may head to the gym a bit later to do some light jogging, it’s still a bit too cold for me to run outside

But I got it done, all of it. …Continue reading →
Experts say it takes three weeks to make or break a habit, one week down two to go! For my writing anyway. As far as working out goes this week was just a trial run, next week my work-outs change. Today’s work-out was pretty much the same as yesterday except I omitted the push-ups since my chest needs a little rest for Monday’s work-out. Standing Bicycle Crunch Four sets of eight. Horse Stance Cross Punch Four sets of …Continue reading →
Morning work-outs are definitely the way to go, for me at any rate. Wake up, get up and get it done. Writing about it is a whole different story, but I’m working on it. This morning I did almost the same thing I did yesterday, with one addition. I added/replaced my second Front Kick set. My other movements are all left side then right side, forty reps in all. The Front Kick on the other …Continue reading →
Working out in the evening is definitely not for me, it just feels weird. Besides that there is too much chance that something will come up to cause a delay and once you start down that path a week or two can go by before you realize. I worked out this morning, later than I normally would because, let’s face it, your body needs time to rest and recuperate between work-outs. Twelve hours wasn’t really …Continue reading →
