    l haven't stretch at all on the weekend.

    Yesterday I took short walk to my meadow (which is more like mix of tiny forest and swamp). I walked maybe 2 km or so.

    I was supposed to do a workout today, but my body is still super sore (especially legs).

    I'm really mad, but what can I do?
    I can push myself through the pain (and risk an injury) or rest. I choose the second option.

    Good night/day bees.

      Have a stretch Matan, it will help and at least gives you a sense of doing something.

        Done today:

        Ring Pull-Ups 4-4-3-3-3 (90sec rest)
        This was first thing I did today (after coffee of course).
        It's getting rather difficult, but I'm taking hardest approach I can.

        Plank Challenge Day 1

        Combat HIIT Day 21: Super HIIT (LVL III, 60sec rest)

        Plank Challenge Day 2

        No Sugar Challenge Day 2

        Good night/day bees!

          Don't feel bad about giving yourself a break when your body needs one. Farm work is a workout in itself!

            alleycat Thanks for your concern.
            I either take a break from farming or from workout, rarely both at the same time. So I always do something, I don't have to worry that I won't make my "activity goal" for the day.
            Also I try to not think about farming as a workout, that way it makes me less lazy.

            Done today:

            Push-Ups 15-13-11-11-10 (90sec rest)
            Again first thing I did (this time before coffee).
            It was hard.

            Combat HIIT Day 23: Power HIIT (LVL III, 60sec rest)
            It's harder than it looks.

            Plank Challenge Day 3

            No Sugar Challenge Day 3
            Honestly? So far it's pretty easy.

            I want to believe that my "dietary choices" (better than before, but still not perfect) will help me shed some body-fat.
            We'll find out on Sunday (it's another "official measurements day").

            Good night/day bees!

              Done today:

              Ring Pull-Ups 5-4-4-4-3 (120sec rest)

              Plank Challenge Day 4

              No Sugar Challenge Day 4
              l'm invincible, I resisted the cheesecake today.

              No Combat HIIT today. I did way too much work on farm today (over 16k steps) and I would like to be able to move tomorrow.

              Good night/day bees!

                You made it past day 4, well done. Not that I like cheesecake but I get what you went through. Stay strong

                  Often when I feel pretty good physically, I feel like a piece of s*** mentally. Today is one of those days.

                  Done today:

                  Push-Ups 17-15-13-13-11 (120sec rest)
                  It's getting really freaking hard. Today was the first time I failed. I fell on the floor on last reps on sets 3 and 4. Of course I got up immediately and I did finished the workout as I supposed to.

                  Plank Challenge Day 5
                  It's slowly getting tougher.

                  Combat HIIT Day 24: Ab Work (LVL III, 60sec rest)
                  Pretty painful, like every ab workout but easier than most of them.

                  No Sugar Challenge Day 5

                  Good night/day bees!

                    Don't worry about your difficulty level, but try to assess why it was hard. Maybe you didn't take enough time to recover, maybe you didn't eat properly before... whatever. Try to find the reason and advance from there.

                      Matan I would keep my peak set and then split the rest in easy sets of max 5 to total up last workout's total +1
                      strength and endurance

                        Today is the day to celebrate.
                        It is my 500th day without cigarette. Yay!

                        Done today:

                        Ring Pull-Ups Test Day
                        one set AMRAP: 7 reps
                        I've never explained how my current plan works.
                        Basically, every 3 sessions is an AMRAP (aka to failure) test session which specify the reps for next 3 sessions. So far it works pretty fine.
                        This time I had the same result as the last time, but I noticed that I had much better form.

                        Plank Challenge Day 6

                        Combat HIIT Day 25: Power Combo (LVL III, 60sec rest)
                        Usually I don't like combos, but today I enjoyed them (maybe because I didn't have to count reps).

                        No Sugar Challenge Day 6
                        Easy peasy!

                        xingyiquan I think I just had a bad day (or rather morning), don't forget that I work physically on the farm and sometimes it can negatively affect my workout performance. I will continue with my current plan (tomorrow is a test day). I enjoy it (it's tough sometimes, but it pushes me to do more) and I see the progress (although it's slow).

                        Good night/day bees!
