        Seri PetiteSheWolf Thanks for support.

        It doesn't look that bad. We maybe have 20% loss.

          That was pretty challenging (I know, I say something like this every workout).

          I did some decluttering (I don't know why, but this word reminds me of TheLibrarian) in my room today, I have a lot more space to work out right now (yep, it was pretty cluttered, and I didn't even finished yet)

          Also I have super sore legs. My glutes, hamstrings and calves are killing me.

          Good night/day bees!

            Honestly, I didn't liked it at all. Those push-ups felt weird, really 'wrists heavy', and kinda ineffective. Walk-outs like walk-outs, heavy sweat, as usual. Seagulls were more like a core exercise than, I guess, shoulders.

            I came up with a new game called:
            ~PTUD (Push till you die)
            It looks like this:
            -Decline push-ups (legs on bench/box, hands on dumbbells/bricks, basically use what you got) to failure with how much rest you need (shorter=better). The goal is to hit the number of reps (this time it was 30 for me).
            -Incline push-ups to failure (same rules, same reps).
            -3 sets of chest squeezes to failure (just as a nice finisher)

            I finished everything with some stretching.
            I don't know why but I really want sore chest...

              -Pull-Ups to failure (1min rest)
              4-2-2-3

              -Back & Biceps
              I rarely say something like this, but those bridge extensions were odd, I felt it mostly in my (still sore) hamtrings.
              I like reverse angles, it's a awesome exercise for traps, upper lats and back delts. Backfists as always hurt my elbows (f*****g hyperextension)

              ~Bicep Curls Dropset (7.5-4-1.5kg per arm)
              Ok, lately I watch a lot of powerlifting/bodybuilding/strongman videos, so I got kinda inspired.

              Good night/day bees!

                  Matan , about backfists... Maybe you should try bringing your fist back to your chest before your arm is fully extended. It will work your biceps more while sparing your joints.

                    I think I already tried it, but I try it again next time, it'll be more like side bicep extension.

                      I take it back what I said about yesterday's bridge extensions. I definitely feel my back now.

                      Done today:

                      ~Strength Protocol: Day 11
                      -Legs
                      Nice, I just (barely) recovered from last leg workout. This shows how nicely this program is 'engineered'.
                      I used to hate jumping lunges, but now, since I got stronger knees, I really enjoy them. Nice explosive exercise.
                      Cossack squats felt like a less awful version of side lunges. I even enjoyed leg raises.

                      I hope that I won't be sore so much as last time. Well, I would like to use my legs for other things too, not only workouts.

                        My legs still work... I have a bit sore glutes but it's pretty good anyway.

                        ~Strength Protocol: Day 12
                        -Abs
                        It was hard and painful, at least it was short (21min). Did I enjoyed it? Well, yeah. V-Ups as always were fun and hollow hold was awful (I couldn't hold it for whole minute because of v-ups). Side planks felt really good, I like them (but i can't say it about the standard ones).

                              Nice one. I really started to like all kinds of push-ups again (since I 'left my ego outside' and aiming for quality over quantity). On the other side I don't like triceps extensions too much (it's a great exercise but super tough).

                              ~3x3 Push-Ups
                              I couldn't figure out a better name.
                              It's basically 3 types of push-ups to failure (decline, standard, incline), without rest between them. 3 sets with 60sec rest.
