    Okay, you've got me hooked on coronation chicken - we used to eat that when I was a young 'un.

    I just looked up the original recipe from 1953-whatever - totally primal as long as you make your own mayo, which many people did back then. For one thing, I don't think canola oil was on the market yet, along with the other nasties.

    Mixing it up a little. Loving Marks LHT programme but I know I can complete the pressups and Pullups to the top level.

    So today was:
    Overhead Lunges (33lb plate)
    Pullups
    Decline (feet elevated) pressups
    150ft Farmers Walk
    Squat Thrusts

    10 of each, then 9 etc down to one.

    After this workout although easy my upper back (between shoulders blsdes) was agony. I think it was my trap and rhomboid. Very sore = rest of the week off. No bad thing. I am really starting to believe in working really hard and taking time off. I look and feel great this AM, so as I have essentially finished MArks LHT programme I am onto a new challenge (technically I have couple of stages to go through but I already know I can do them).

    A while ago I used a different training system. Due to a busy schedule I used a Push, Pull, Squat split working out once every 4 days and it was awesome.

    So given my new faith and direction with bodyweight movements I am going back to this but centering it around bodyweight movements (starting back on Marks progression ladder and working up).

    The concept I am using is the 7-6-5 one. This means (using pressups as an example) I will be doing 7 Incline Pressups then resting for 7 seconds in active recovery eg still in pressup position, then 7 more reps etc etc. After completng the 7th set I rest properly. I then repeat this doing 6 sets of 6 reps with 6 seconds rest.....Then 5x5 with 5 seconds rest. Then move onto the pull and/or squat exercise.

    I will start by working out on a Monday, Friday, Tuesday Monday etc. Meaning 4 days off between 2 sessions, and 6 days off between the other.

    04/09/2012
    Incline Pressups 7-6-5 (Will do this again as I had to stop once).
    Rack Pullups Feet on floor 7-6-5 (Humbling as I can normally knock out Pullups).
    Goblet Squat 7-6-5 Easy.

    Will be out slowly moving with dogs etc and when Im coaching the kids. Also try get out on the bike. Next gym session on Monday.

    Or how about Shovelglove? I LOVE Shovelglove. I think it activates the imagination more than most exercises.

    What is 'shovelglove?'

    Havnt posted this week. As I mentioned before I am following the AR7 concepts but using bodyweight movements. Last session written above. Today I repeated using the same movements. I had a couple of goals going into today to help me gauge domr improvement. Firstly my goal was to remain in perfect plank (active recovery) whilst resting between pressup sets. Last time I had to bridge up a little to give my abs, arms and chest a break. Today I managed all sets whilst staying in perfect plank during the rest periods. By the last couple of sets of the 5x5 I was shaking like a pooping dog.

    Pullups. These are back to vvv basic level which feels weirs given myability on the movement, but necessery just now. Goal was to be able to keep hands above head even during rests to keep some level of pressure on forearms, grip, biceps and stretched lats. This was hard and the feeling in forearms and biceps (the bicep insertion and forearm origin) was not pleasant.

    Last goal was to change from side to side squats, to bulgarian squats. For this I started by missing out the 7x7 sets.

    Results were great, all goals achieved. I so be extending legs out on the pullups. I'll be switching to normal pressups and ill be adding in the 7x7 on the one legged squats....cant wait (????)

    Shovelglove is doing exercises with a sledgehammer, the head of which is wrapped in some padding. You can check out the explanation and suggested movements at shovelgloveDOTcom.
