    Thanks for a warm welcoming, it really feels amazing to be back and to workout again.

    Done today:

    Extended Protocol Phase 1-1 Day 1: Shoulders, Chest & Triceps (30/60sec rest)
    30 sec rest between sets and 60 sec between exercises.
    It was much harder than I thought. I'm soaking wet (it is 31 degrees C here). I really enjoyed my first session in 15 days, hard, but not too long and I even am a little bit pumped.

    martikkk Strength Protocol does have L-Sits and Pistol Squats. It's a great program but in my opinion it is a bit too short, that's why I decided to extend it, to give myself more time with all those progressions (and make it a bit easier). I believe that Human Flag is beyond reach most of us mortals, it can take years and a lot of dedication to develop this kind of skill (I was doing lots of research lately).
    Personally I would like to learn handstand, front lever and maybe muscle-up.

    Good night/day bees!

        Done today:

        Ring Pull-Ups 5-3-3 (to failure)(90sec rest)

        Extended Protocol Phase 1-1 Day 2: Back & Biceps (30/60sec rest)
        It was really really hard (and long). I'm no longer sure about my idea of adding reps.

        After couple of hours in the field (in extreme heat) and over 30 min workout (in the same heat) I'm completely destroyed.
        My triceps hurt like hell (it's been a while since I last time did dips) and I'm partially eaten by mosquitoes.

        Good night/day bees!

            Extended Protocol Phase 1-1 Day 3: Legs (30/60sec rest)
            Super tough stuff. Lots of reps, sauna-like temperature, and quite possibly I won't be able to walk tomorrow.

            Good night/day bees!

              I agree that adapting Strength Protocol to allow for a smoother progression makes sense. But I also believe you shouldn't have very hard workouts every single day, especially on top of all the hard physical labour you're doing on the farm.
              Take care of yourself, Matan! Pushing will make you progress only if you give your body time to recover.

                Redline That's why I've planned a rest day between phases (I said that I did my research), maybe for some light stretching or something.

                  Extended Protocol Phase 1-1 Day 4: Abs (30/60sec rest)
                  I think I just found out how it is to be in hell. It's hot and it hurts, however you can have strong abs.
                  But seriously. It was super challenging and I barely finished it.

                    Done yesterday:

                    Nothing.
                    I know, I know, I said that I'll stretch on rest days, but honestly I wasn't in mood and I wanted to fully" chill and rest".

                    Done today:

                    Extended Protocol Phase 1-2 Day 1: Shoulders, Chest & Triceps (30/60sec rest)
                    Too... much... anger... It wasn't a good session.
                    Today everything seems annoying.
                    I overloaded my hip and my elbow during work, but I don't think it's anything serious.

                    Tomorrow is "Official Measurements Day" but I don't expect any positive change.

                      Hey, good to see you are posting. Even if you think nothing is improving. Change doesn't have to be obvious and even excruciately long periods of stalemate can teach us a lot... I hope anyway, it's not like I'm doing great myself but the post workout high is getting me going.

                        Bad day = bad workout.
                        Unfortunately my tummy is a little bit upset (I might have eaten something bad), so my workout wasn't too enjoyable.

                        As for "Official Measurements Day" there's no significant change (but recently I was letting myself to eat stuff I shouldn't eat).

                        Good night/day bees!

                        P.S. My tummy feels much better already.

                            Thank you Gandhalfit I'm already perfectly OK (in terms of tummy health)

                            Done today:

                            Extended Protocol Phase 1-2 Day 3: Legs (30/60sec rest)
                            It wasn't bad, maybe not as nice as last time but decent anyway.

                            My wrist started to hurt... Again!
                            Next couple of weeks (if not more) will be significantly harder because of that.

                              Any training you can do that would ease off of your wrist?

                                Hekewika l don't do anything specific. I'm just trying to move it through full range of motion (and stretch) as often as possible.

                                Done today:

                                Ring Pull-Ups 6-3-2 (to failure)(90sec rest)

                                Extended Protocol Phase 1-2 Day 4: Abs (30/60sec rest)
                                It felt about significantly easier than last time.

                                I'm super mad and frustrated. As you know I recently (last 1,5-2 months) was digging a lot on the farm. Well, a lot of my work went to hell because of one person (and it's not me). It makes me not want to work anymore...
