Okay so I opted for the Elevated push ups and will eventually work may way up to handstand push ups. Last week I worked on the HS push ups…. but must develop more strength to complete the move. I have faith that I will get there. After all, my wall walks are getting better. Today was my first time doing the floor press. I’m thrilled! While I have a bar and weights at home, I haven’t done the press at home because I don’t have a stand. I learned the proper technique, so I’m excited that I can practice outside of the gym.
After having resting my muscles for two days, I felt stronger today. I know that as the week goes on, I’ll have to push myself harder, but I’m getting five days in again this week. Next week I return to work and my workouts will move from mornings to afternoons. OMG! I’m not liking this at all, but the reality is I work for a living and it’s time to get back to business. Mentally I’m preparing myself and already have a new schedule worked out. How does the saying go? Something like, “…failure to plan, is planning to fail…” You get the point.
I will miss the last few weeks of taking Tailor to the gym each morning. At a young age, he is developing an understanding of the importance of nutrition and fitness. His small frame is lean, but he is strong. This morning I shot this video of him scaling the rope the way I’d like to. LOL! His treat for waiting patiently is a few minutes to do a few rounds of pull ups and rope climbing. Oh boy! We’ve got another beast in the family! Love it!
