It has been a tiring day today as Chinese New Year is round the corner. Like every good Chinese who loves his culture, during this period, I would be busy spring cleaning. It certainly doesn’t help when school ends late because I have to rehearse for a skit that will be performed for the students once the Chinese New Year holidays are over. (Hey! The students should be performing for the teachers instead!)
Anyways, I went to my fiancee’s house to help her clean up her room. It was quite tiring. So by the end of it, I was quite tired and it was quite late already and I was really tempted to just call it a night and not workout.
Then again, feeling that all my efforts will be wasted, furthermore, during Chinese New Year I am going to eat lots of foo. Instead of heading back home, I went to the fitness corner to do my Body weight Workout.
|160||Plank||Alternative: Forearm Plank|
|60||Side Plank||Alternative: Forearm Side Plank|
Hollow hold felt a bit harder this time round. The other time I could hold it for a full minute. This time round I had to rest a while before continuing again.
Didn’t do the handstands and support practice as I was lazy this time round 😛
|1||10||3||Pullup progression||Standard pull ups. 10, 8, 6|
|10||3||Dipping progression||Parallel bar dips. 10, 8, 8|
|2||10||3||Squat Progression||Step ups. 6, 8, 10|
|10||3||L-sit Progression||Foot supported L-sit 30sec|
|3||10||3||Pushup progression||Diamond push up. 10, 10, 10|
|10||3||Row Progression||Wide rows. 10, 10 ,10|
The number of reps and sets I was able to do for the stregnth work was the same as before. One difference however was that I am stronger for me L-sits. I used to have difficulty holding the position for 30sec. Now I could hold it for a full 30sec! Progression!
By the end of the workout, I was perspiring heavily. I went home, tired…Looking forward to a nice bath.
