Dyno-

I have unnaturally big thigns. I guess its my genetic predisposition... So I tend to try to stay away from squats. I do them occassionally though, one set of as many as I can, followed by Hindu Pushups. This is usually at some point in the day after my G.U.T.S workout which is the basis of my regimen. If all my household chores are done and my daughter is asleep I'll do them. Sometimes I do them with her around and she tries to mimic me which is awesome.

I find with my body, high reps and high volume tends to work best with the way I want to look, but when I do any kind of squatting my thighs blow up, so I tend to favor cardio moves to shape my legs for a more leaner look. I don't know if that makes sense or not, Im at work and kind of tired.

Weaponx,it makes sense, I had a friend who had the same issue with his legs,naturally big,and when ever he did squats, they would just get bigger, so all he did for his legs was ride the stationary bike to keep them in great shape.keep posting, your posts are terrific.

Dyno,

Yeah, its my curse. Hard to find pants that fit good, especially being short!

Sunday 7/29/2012

Burpees 10 to 1= 55
Atlas Situps 55
Atlas 2 Pushup 50

Step Upsx 50 Hindu Squat x 25 4 sets each

Burpees 10 to 1=55
Atlas Situps 50
Body Row 20

My little one kept getting in the way of the jump rope, so I changed things up today. I do Hindu Squats sometimes!

Monday July 30, 2012

Burpees 10 to 1
Unanchored strict full range situp 25 leg lift 10
Work bench row 10
Atlas 2 pushup 25
Jump rope 800
More situps 25 leg raises 10
Work bench row 10
Atlas 2 pushup 50

23:44

I think I'll keep the burpees to 1 descending set then start my GUTS routine, however, I'll try to add a set each day until I get to 15 to 1 with ease instead of two descending sets. Intensity and speed are the goals

Tuesday July 31, 2012

Burpees 11 to 1=66
Unanchored Situps (the real way) 30 Atlas Leg Raise 10
Workbench Row 10
Dips 10
Jump Rope 600
Unanchored Situps 30 Leg Raise 10
Workbench Row 10

Hindu Pushups 25

Later in the day I felt bloated from some bad food choices so:

5x 10 yard bear crawl/10 pushups
100 Hindu Squats non stop, with home made chain shackles around my hands

Tomorrow I may change things up, I want to do a "Monster Mash" challenge. What do you think?
100 hindu pushups (or maybe 8 count bodybuilders)
100 situps
100 Hindu Squats
100 yard bear crawl
1000 jump ropes

I have to go easy on pulling movements for a while. My left elbow is sore. i want to concentrate on fat shredding conditioning... Bodyweight only

Wednesday August 1, 2012

Burpees 20 to 15 = 105
Situps 100
Bear Crawl 100 yards
Hindu Squat 100
Jump Rope 500

i wanted to do 1000 jump ropes but i was smoked after the burpees. I never started a set at 20 before. That burned!.

Tomorrow i hope to do 100 8 count burpees (with 2 pushups per rep), 100 situps, 1000 jump ropes. Simple and to the very sharp point.

PS I just read an article called "Ulysses Yield" by the former world record pushup holder Charles Linster. This fellow is an inspiration. Sadly he passed away this past March.

Thursday August 2, 2012

8 Count Prison Burpees (2 pushups, 1 jump) 10 sets of 10 with 15 second rest. This was brutal. 200 pushups total. My garage was probably over 100 degrees to get the full effect of misery.
100 situps
100 Hindu Squats
25 Hindu Pushups
710 Jump Ropes

My goal is to do one continuous set of each exercise, adding a rep every day so im doing one long set of many reps someday. We will see how it goes. Ill probably scrap that idea.. We will see.
