    Power up - 7/30
    90 Days of Action - 7/90
    Back & Core - 7/30

    50 pushups (40 Classic,10 knee - remember I am going easy on my shoulders..)
    60 abs (20X3 Dead Bugs)
    Glutes of Steel - Day 3

    Oh... This was totally coincidental that I started from Day 7 of the programs exactly on the 7th consecutive days of workout...
    And as discussed earlier, I was doing too many things at once without any thought, so I dropped Athena's Palybook... But it seems there is enough on the plate even after that..
    But I'll now try and stick to this.. Additionally not to totally freak out, starting tomorrow, I plan to time my workout i.e., in one go how long I am working out and in a day how much I am spending on working out..

    Good Luck & All the Best for All the Bees on their journeys...

      I really like the Dead Bugs, I used to get slight back pain during the initial days, but with time there is a good burn in the legs (top part) and eventually the core and legs are being worked and I can feel it..

      My shoulder have considerably improved.. I'll have to work on slowly increasing the full push-up count.. But I am happy to do them on knees for now..

        They are really a different kind of ab exercise, arenโ€™t they? Iโ€™d like to see them more as a regular thing in workouts....nice work on the push ups๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

          Yes they are a different kind of ab exercise, at a medium difficulty level..
          Push-ups.. I have seen some really good results with the push-ups.. only if I haven't pushed so hard initially trying to do 100 a day..
          But I am improving, my shoulder pain has reduced.. I can see some muscle on my arms..

          And I am really happy with all that.. Thanks to Dinomaniak for his thread which made me start the push-ups as regular routine.. โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹โ€‹

              Hello Guys..
              Its been quite some time...

              Hope everyone's doing good.. safe and healthy..
              I hope you are using the lockdown time to get things done that are wait-list for quite some time.
              Even sleeping all day is fine if one is missing on that..

              Due to continuous long holidays, weddings and winter, I got lazy and the workouts went their way, away from my routine..
              Lock down has given the opportunity to look at what I am doing and where I am going wrong..

              Like Amirsh mentioned quite sometime back, it was kind of workout addiction, where I was just doing too many exercises but not doing them right..

              So now thanks to Lockdown, I realised I am not using proper weights, so I upped the weights I was using.. earlier I always thought about conserving energy for that 15th rep in 3rd set.. Now I have choosen weights where I can go max 15reps in set 1 and rest 2 sets I am pushing hard till the point I can no longer hold proper form.
              With the number of exercises per workout have come down.. Like 2 upper body and 2 lower body and done I will be sweating and unable to move a muscle. And doms next day of the exact muscles that I intended to work.. almost perfect..

              I am tracking myself in an excel sheet and will some day upload or link it here..

              Anyway thank you guys for great encouragement and inputs as always.. especially Amirsh

              Be safe and take care guys.. Change is always good, irrespective of the good or bad it does..

                so here is the link it is call Triple-Exercise Total body workout..

                Hope this might help a few..

                    Yup.. I tried many things and ended on that kind of plan on my own.. and its been roughly 4 weeks and I can clearly see improvements in muscle, my posture, sleep thats great and to see it being there I was happy that its a tested regimen..

                    And yeah Happy Anniversary..

                        Hello bees..
                        so this was the program or schedule that I was following for the last 4 weeks.. obviously I have skipped a few exercises .. but yeah I did workout everyday..

                        Click image for larger version  Name:	schedule.png Views:	0 Size:	252.8 KB ID:	695734
                        So with this I was able to get a clear definition on my hands, shoulders and chest.. obviously I skipped a lot of leg exercises as I was doing squats randomly and I am a runner so that was fine..

                        Now my question is whenever I do shoulder exercise especially upright row, I am unable to engage shoulder in any exercise for the next 2 days.. there is this burning sensation on the muscle of the shoulder for a day..
                        so what is the best alternate for upright row?? as this is extensively mentioned in many upper body exercises..
                        I want to start Ironborn, but seeing the day1 with upright rows itself making my shoulders tinge..

                        the issue is with upright rows only.. I can do bent over rows and flys alright..
                        No reducing the weights doesn't make any difference.. it still hurts..

                        thanks guys for your time and help..

                        Core strength: to do something at the bare minimum everyday, I did push-ups till failure as soon as I wake-up followed by 2 or 3 'suryanamaskar' and meditation.. all that I termed as core strength..

                          I guess you could try milder shoulder exercises. Something that will be similar in motion but do less of it and without pushing or pulling weight at all.

                            so after 3 days of rest/dilemma

                            Day 1 of IronBorn..
                            started with 6kg Dumbbells (each)..
                            continued the last sets till failure or the form holds..

                            the next set dumbbells are 8kgs and I can't achieve even half the reps with those.. so continuing on with 6kg..
                            Hope that I will cross the 7 day barrier and continue more than that..
