Nicely done flanders77!!!

Strong indeed :shock:
I like the XCEL worksheet and graph. I'm going to use that as well. It's a great way to really see the progression.

Keep it up.....

Since it was unusually late in the evening I was really weak and did 2 reps less than last time.
Now I know I have to train in the early evening to have full power...


I like your powers of deduction Flanders. :wink:

The question is if you can control the weight. Balance control is more difficult for the dumbells of course (that is why injuries are more common) but if you have control the dumbells have the advantage of allowing movements in every direction and thereby enable you to lift the weight very "naturally". This is what spares the shoulders (not sure if the term is correct here).


Yes, "This is what spares the shoulders", is correct and I tend to do mainly DB bench pressing, too. However, this is mainly because I don't have a regular training partner.

I've just registered on veganfitness and will test my 1 RM asap and get on the list.

I did not post here for a while because some things have changed in the last month:
1. I stopped doing yoga with a teacher and only do it for myself. Surprisingly this gave me a big push.
2. I stopped going to the gym and instead have my own "gym" in our loft which consists of a pair of rings, some elastic tubes, a pair of parallettes and of couse my bodyweight.
3. I love the fact of being a absolute beginner again and learning to control my bw using no aditional weights. Here are some pics of me doing some basic technique training:

My goals are:
1. Iron Cross
2. free handstand pushups
3. 20 pistols
4. maltese
5. front lever
6. the flag (I will get you BIGBOY :wink: )
7. one-arm chin-up
...and some other basic gymnastik elements.

How long can you hold an iron cross now...or was that photo just taken at the perfect time??? keeping my arms locked...I can only get my hands about 2ft away from my body(maybe 45% if I'm lucky) then I sink like a rock and hurt my shoulders

Hey Jeremy!
Alex told me that your eyes are not that good... Did you really missed the elastic bands? They take away about 20kg of my 87kg BW.
I can do some very slow reps and hold it in the end-position for some secs. But I am getting better and plan to get rid of the support within one year. :D

My eyes only look good to other people...they don't look good from behind them...I took them out and let Daywalker give them a try...I must admit he's pretty blind too though...if it weren't for modern technology he's be alot more muscular now from carrying realy thick glasses

The pics are really good.
I'm too lazy and afraid of frustration to do this bodyweight stuff :oops: :roll:
Keep training like this and some day you'll have a body like Ned Flanders! :shock:

Train like this for a decade or two and you eventually will be a womanizer like Ned "Fabio" Flanders:

Good luck!
