Current training – March 2012

Our new baby is finally here, hence the break from posting. She’s a real joy and having two kids around the house is great.

I outlined a template a while back for training once she arrived, but (as is often the way) am not following it exactly.

Like last month my focus is still on handbalancing and basic gymnastics but the format has changed. I’m doing handstands every session, followed by a circuit of three exercises. The circuits have an upper body focus on Monday and Friday and lower on Wednesday.

I’m done and dusted in around 30 minutes.

The upper/lower split is an experiment as heavy, full body sessions plus not much sleep was leaving me pretty tired. Hopefully this will make recovery easier as this combination of exercises is great.

Warm up – every session

  • A1: Joint mobility
  • B1: L-sit – 10sec
  • B2: Chin up – >10
  • B3: Assisted pistol (alternating) – >10 (easy)

A1 then 2 rounds of B1-3

Monday

  • A1: Face the wall HS – 8 x 20-30sec
  • B1: Back lever (straddle) – 5sec
  • B2: Press HeS (pike) – 5
  • B3: Front lever row (tucked) – 5

A1 then 3 rounds of B1-3

Wednesday

  • A1: Face the wall HS – 8 x 20-30sec
  • B1: Assisted  pistol (alternating) – >10
  • B2: GHR – 5
  • B3: Sled push* – 5

A1 then 3 rounds of B1-3

Friday

  • A1: Face the wall HS – 8 x 20-30sec
  • B1: Back lever (adv tuck) – 12sec
  • B2: Pseudo planche push up – 5-8
  • B3: Assisted one arm chin ups – 1-3R/L

A1 then 3 rounds of B1-3

*sled push may be over playing this slightly – I strap a kettlebell to a cushion and push it around the wood floor. It does the job though.
