Seems like you're getting bigger, ha? :wink: Only the hips are smaller, which is good, I assume.
Hm, never thought of taking measurements. I guess it's a good way to monitor your progress. I only look at the scale to see if I gained weight or not.

Yes, getting bigger! Yeah I do wonder if a couple of the measurements are a bit out.

Ran 10.5km today, felt quite light and good :)

Spent the last week working, been busy as, not getting enough sleep, but fitting in random pullups/chinups and pressups, getting a good workout from work too.

Starting work means needing to create new routines....

Monday I scrubbed a roof all day at work (mmmm asbestos), also up and down staris and ladders all day.
Tuesday I ran 12km, did some sets of pressups, chinups, dips, situps, yoga.
Wednesday, quick morning yoga, more scrubbing, ladders, stairs, and carrying heavy things.
Today more scrubbing, ladders, stairs, carrying heavy things, followed by a good 20 min of intense yoga and some chinups.

Also this evening I sparred with a friend who practices Kung Fu. He has an MMA match on Saturday, is on the verge of going pro. I now have a very sore shin, and am feeling like I've had a couple of really good workouts today.

Looking forward to more scrubbing tomorrow (no wonder my right arm is bigger than my left....) and catching up on sleep this weekend.

Have 10 days off work after tomorrow so will be putting myself back on the Armstrong program during this time, after a couple of days break.

Started back on Armstrong yesterday, but have decided instead that I will do it every second day this time with no two day break.

Day 1: AM pressups (knuckles, of course!): 19-14-11
Ran 5km (22 min - ankle sore from the sparring last week)
PM pullups: 7-5-4-4-3

Also realised that in my journal prior to now I was getting chinups and pullups mixed up.

Been eating averagely as I'm pretty broke right now.

Interesting idea, it occurred to me, too. When I was on Armstrong I felt totally sore during the week and then, during the weekend break I felt too lazy. Maybe it's actually good thing to do! Let us know.
I'm doing this at home right now (except the one arm pull up, that's too advanced for me!)

I have come to the realisation that although I do a bunch of heavy lifting and hard labour at work, it's not enough to advance my strength. This morning my pressups were a familiar 17-14-11. I want to get STRONGER damnit.

Once I return to work I MUST keep up a workout routine.

Looks like a good pullup workout. I usually incorporate straight leg lifts or knee lifts into my chinups/pullups.

I think I was too hard on myself. Actually re-reading my journal here shows that I have actually advanced my strength, just not really by as much as I'd like. Persistence! :)

Day 2: Pullups - 1-2-3-4-5-4

I am rethinking the idea of skipping days and am instead going to alternate between pullups and chinups daily.

Been really tired today, but am off to buy fresh foods this evening, and will get a sleep in tomorrow :)

AM:
Knuckle press-ups: 20-17-14

I did the press-ups slightly faster (but still working the negatives) and went down slightly less, I usually do them so my nose hits the floor, but left it about an inch higher this time. It felt better for something to do first thing in the morning :)

PM: Armstrong Day 3:
Pull-up normal grip: 4 Chin-up close grip: 4 Pull-up wide grip: 4 These were all easy, could've added another couple in each except the wide grip.

Feel GOOD today :)

Armstrong Day 2: Chinups - 1-2-3-4-5-6-5-3

2 hours sleep. Up for work at 6.
Breakfast was a fruit salad with nuts, seeds, tahini, eaten in the car on the way to work.

Work included pulling 2x100m pairs of ropes up the side of a buildings as fast as I could, pulling and pushing a 102kg guy against a wall (we were abseiling with an overhang so had to use suction cups and pull each other into the wall), and general other laboury stuff.

Lunch was brown rice, hummus, banana, 1 slice of gluten free fruit bread, a samosa and 1/2 a dark chocolate peanut slab.

Dinner was baked falafel and a green salad with hummus (I dumpster dived HEAPS of hummus yesterday)

Drank diluted orange juice throughout the day and had snacks of an apple a prune and a banana.

Feeling good, but really need sleep. Tomorrow I am going on a long run :)
