    I'm just doing it out of habit. Will stick to just Pull up challenge days and give it a go.
    Side pain isn't an issue with my current numbers but the combination with planks and push ups wears at my shoulder.

      8th May

      Yesterday's DD, 30 deadlifts, EC.

      The Squat Patrol: Week 19@ 84/d
      95 hindu squats.

      Pull-up Progress: 6-4-1 standard before shifting to 5 neutral-grip, since I'm not doing them tomorrow.

      Small bites:
      Day 21
      P_Epic 5: Not epic...children and crancky legs (needed more of a shake out) made this all a bit lame.
      C_1 minute cardio
      C_1 minute plank
      C_30 day office: mistake to do this before Epic. The kids were trying to sit on my lap.
      C_pullup
      C_yoga: 60s per side

      100 V-ups

          The Squat Patrol: Week 19@ 84/d
          95 deep weighted squats (15kg).
          Week 19 / 588
          103 into Week 20

          Pull-up Progress:...nothing to see here!

          Small bites:
          Day 22
          P_Epic 5: Done at Epic
          C_1 minute cardio
          C_1 minute plank
          C_30 day office: did after Epic. My arms aren't speaking to me.
          C_pullup: done as my Vs
          C_yoga

          100 V-ups ...pretty sure I did an extra 20 but if you don’t record it- it never happened!

          My abs were still good to go yesterday DorothyMH , just my quads were shitty.

              It's nice actually oneironaut , I can get in the zone. Yeah it burns but a bit of yoga sorts it out no problems.
              Also means I can report that I'm hitting expected numbers in at least one of the exercises. Some of the other people I train with- now they are full beast mode! At best I'm the vanilla low calorie option

                  C_1 minute plank
                  C_30 day office: Continuing my whinge...the Tricep dip challenge ends with 60 dips then a 1:30 hold the next day =3 "normal". But Office =1 "easy"
                  I'm assuming Office is meant to be a cumulative total. Either way, held the tricep dip for 3:10 today. Not sure how much longer I can hold for, this is punishment.
                  C_pullup: with Epic today I did this as 70 Vs diluted with 30 standard crunches.

                    That Office challenge looks like a good one for static holds. You can DO it!! You’re SO CLOSE!!But now I see you are ALSO doing the tricep dip challenge....holy cow, I’d call you a glutton for punishment!

                    Comment


                      Lol, not doing tricep dip challenge. It's on my list, but I've got alot of other things to hit first before I think about it.

                            Snail moving to full plow meditation...not sure if this is a thing but won't know if it works until I get the next opportunity to spar.
                            Definitely getting better at relaxing right into restricted breathing positions and making minimal adjustments to maximise airflow...then stay there without itching for the end.
                            Terminology because plow/snail seem to be used interchangeably on the internet, for me:
                            Snail = knees on head
                            Plow = feet on floor

                              I realise Rainbow Dragon could probably sort me out with the whole snail/ plow pose issue.
                              ...then I realise that I have yoga types I can ask all around me. I have received the word Halasana and the concept that snail is a version of Halasana with a rounded back.

                                The English names for yoga poses sometimes differ from one region to the next and sometimes from one school of yoga to the next.

                                I understand Plow Pose (Halasana) to be done with the legs extended and toes on the floor, like so: https://www.pocketyoga.com/pose/plow
                                This is pretty standard over here--at least in so far as any class I've ever done.

                                Snail Pose, I think, is the Yin Yoga name for the pose I know as Deaf Man's Pose (or sometimes Ear Pressure Pose). In Deaf Man's Pose, the legs are bent with the knees beside the ears and the whole front side of the lower legs on the floor (knees, shins, tops of the feet), like so: https://www.pocketyoga.com/pose/deaf_man
                                (Knees resting on the forehead is an option if they don't reach the floor.)

                                The back will necessarily be rounded in Snail/Deaf Man's whereas in Plow Pose the mid and lower back are kept straighter.
