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!
