      Is that a joke or are you seriously getting a belly? That seems... sucky... if you are?

      Anyways, tonight was metcon:
      As Many Rounds As Possible for 20 minutes:
      1 pull up
      2 push ups
      3 sit ups
      4 squats
      5 box jumps
      I got 33 rounds which I am kind of disappointed in because I really did not expect to get as gassed as I did around the 16th minute. I mean, it comes out to
      33 pullups
      66 pushups
      99 situps
      132 squats
      165 box jumps
      but I feel like I should have been able to hit 40 rounds even. Oh well.

      • @Velocity... Where do you do your levers? I found that holding onto a very narrow bench works well for me, especially since I have wrist issues (which will probably never go away, knowing me..) I'll go into that "crane" position, then slowly tip my head forward. I'm working on extending my legs (is that a full lever?) But man, the combination of balancing and using all your arm strength to keep you in that inverted position is a CHALLENGE! Even when I slide back down, I try to hold my legs extended in front of me, kind of resting them on my upper thighs. Like an l-sit with my hands placed in front of my crotch. Does that make sense?

        Your back bridges are similiar to the steps shown in Convict Conditioning. I can do a full back bridge, but I haven't been able to "crawl" down anything yet. Never really tried actually, my back is fragile. ;-) Have you ever looked into CC? I think it's awesome you are focusing on your weak areas, like your balance on your right side. It really is important to pinpoint those issues, especially when dealing with bodyweight movements, I have learned...

        @Mainer, you're the second person to say that, although I've never thought of it myself. ;-) I think a lot of people's lack of energy is mental. Unless I get poor sleep or if I'm really stressed out, I can usually muster the energy to do whatever the hell I want. I actually told the post man, I was like, good nutrition man, when your diet is dialed in, you just get this insane energy!! It's really true. Shit, and I was fasting. Plus the right music REALLY gets me going. I usually use the same songs to drive me, so just when that intro starts it's like my body recognizes that cue and prepares itself for work, I get that adrenaline rush. But ..just feeding your body all the good nutrients and not weighing it down with all the crap.. I think it can turn anybody into a wild animal! ;-) And kayaking... Lucky man... I've never been! I can't wait to go mountain biking back in Florida with the old man again. He misses it, too. :-)

              Right now my elbow levers I'm practicing on the floor. I too have some wrist flexibility issues but I think part of that is the copious amount of time I've spent over the years in front of a computer and/or holding a video game controller. So, almost as part of the lever training I'm also strengthening my wrists (hopefully). But when I practice them, I follow the tutorial given on BeastSkills.com. And yes, full leg extension is a full lever.

              I've looked into Convict Conditioning. Right now though it's not in the finances. I have other material already (including Building the Gymnastic Body by Sommer) and I'm working off of that for the time being.

                    • Today was SimpleFit L1D2. Completed it in 4:27.29.

                      Then did 100 burpees in 10x10 form. Did 10 reps, then rested for the same amount of time it took me to do those ten. Completed in 14:01.83. It's been a little while since I last did significant number of burpees...

                            • 1) Handstand practice -- About 10-15 minutes' worth of practice. I didn't have a hold longer than one minute, since virtually all were in the 30-45 second range, but I did six or seven holds. I even had a hold where I kicked into a freestanding position and it held for a few short seconds (3-5). But it was more like a ball coming to rest on a hill. It'll stop and hang out for just a moment, but you know it's going to come right back down pretty quickly.
                              2a) Back lever practice -- Another ten minutes or so of practice. Five holds, I think (maybe six), and most were in the 20-30 second range. I'm still in the step where I'm facing the ground with knees full tuck and back not straight, but my shoulders and traps were feeling it from having practiced handstands so that's probably why I was a bit weaker on these. Still, good progress I think. I'm hoping to progress to a straight-backed full tuck soon.
                              2b) Fingertip wall pushups -- I'm starting to work on finger tendon strength. This, along with wrist strength, have been areas that weighed on my mind for a while now. So, I figure why not start now! I did three sets of 10, and my feet were... oh, around 18 inches from the wall. Start out nice and easy.

                              3) L-sit practice -- Three or four holds, in the 25-30 second range. My legs are still at a large angle though. Grr.

                              4) Shuttle sprints -- Six sprints of about 50 yards, 25 down and back. I've never been particularly fast or quick; my best time was about 8.75 seconds. I think the week off from sprints due to my toe injury set me back a little bit, too.
