Week 4 of 8 vlog and my own muscle ups:) haha interesting point:)

Well the business of last week has hit me a bit today:) haha so i listened to my body and toned it down for today and did more simple exercises and it worked great!! This is what the video is about today. Explaining that IF you are not feeling well to tone it down, it's okay:) It's a challenging 8 week cycle and doing a modified version of one of the 5 workouts is totally cool to do once in a while. Heck, doing maintainance work for weeks is even totally okay as it keeps your body feeling good....and that is good right:)
MBG 1 - restoration; Eischens Yoga beginner sequence yesterday and gonna do supine bridge only tonight as a relaxation pose and then about 7 minutes of breath work to help me relax even more and see how that helps me sleep tonight:) cause it for sure makes me chilled out big time after i do that at the end of each EY class!!
MBG 2 - training: Monday & Tuesday workouts
MONDAY - Heavy 75% push ups and chin ups, then Boomerang 45/45
Push ups - 3x4+60kg...nice and strong pops up on each rep
Chin ups - 3x2+24kg...did not feel so strong on this but still got them but challenging.
  1. HSPU's - 14 (10) New PR (up 1 rep) the 10 in a row is one of my bests in many years!!!
  2. Bar MU's - 8 this is down 1 rep from last time i did this workout in madison 2 weeks ago, last week did 9 in a row in chicago but ALL WALK UPS!! which i do not like doing. If you're not sure what a walk up MU is it's when you pop one elbow over the bar like walking up then the other....it's a MU but not a good one....so i'm working on it and might modify my Bar MU's so i do only pure ones....we'll see:)
