Re: Training overhaul
Been concentrating on gymnastic work, complemented with squats, deadlifts and db snatches.
I can now do 5 x 5 full range of motion handstand press ups (with hands elevated on chairs) and very solid 1 arm chins and pull ups. Also, straddle front lever (not the tidiest, but I'm chuffed with them) and pull ups with 60 kg added.
Conditioning is excellent. I started my training log about 18 months ago with the burpee challenge of doing 10 at the beginning of each minute and resting for the remainder of the minute, for as long as possible. Well, seeing as I turn 40 tomorrow I thought it'd be a good challenge to get 40 mins worth in, and that's exactly what I did for a total of 400 burpees.
More or less without fail I'm up at 6 am and out the door on my bike to give the dogs a run out, usually for an hour.
