Recently I posted how I was able to do 10 dips instead 8 after the pull ups. Well, it went back to 8 again. And I think I know the reason…
It’s a bright and sunny day today and I managed to do the full Reddit body weight workout at the fitness corner at the park. Instead of doing handstands, I replaced them with 3X 10 reps of elevated pike push up. Other than that, I kept everything the same. I did the warm up and did the skills work also.
I realised that what was causing me to feel fatigued for my dips was the skills work in the beginning. For the skills work, I did parallel bar support and held on for 2mins.
My arms were really tired after this. As such, it is no wonder that I struggle to do 10 dips this time! Damn! It seems like I need to be more consistent in all my workouts to have a fair comparison.
After consideration, I think I would need to put in one more strength training in my workout schedule . Currently, this is my schedule:
Monday- Muay Thai
Tuesday- Strength training
Thursday- Strength training
Sunday- 5km run
I only do two strength training workouts in a week. I need to have the discipline to wake up on Saturday mornings to do my strength workouts to maximize my training.
