pullup *handles* ?

I'm living in a rented room until September, while taking a semester off from school, and I just discovered that my door is not of any sort of standard size, so my door gym won't fit. :( Gah! I've been doing pullups on the door itself, but that's an imperfect solution and the angle is really hard on...

new goals, summer '09

New goals for the summer! As I finish off my sophomore year, I'm back in more-or-less the same pickle, but confident that I can get out of it (as I did last summer, dropping weight from 150 - 140 lb by the end of the summer while gaining muscle/strength/overall well-being). First and foremost, I hop...

back at it...

UGH! 8 months later, and I am horrifically out of shape! As the summer's starting, I have the same goals -- get back to a healthy weight and have a fit and useful body. current stats: 20 year old male 157 pounds ... no idea what else. Hopefully, I'll be able to turn some of that excess weight into m...

I went to a physical therapist about my hips / past knee problem, and they diagnosed it exactly as I'd been told when I ran XC in high school - I have flat feet and a little hypermobility in my ankle. I was fitted for orthodics, and they should be coming in sometime this week; until then, I'm giving...

Those look great, but for the time being I'm just going to continue using the door gym; I go back to school in a couple of weeks, and when I get there, I'm just going to do my workouts at the climbing gym, where I can do my pulls on holds. That said, if I'm ever in a long-term situation where I'm no...

Hey there! I've been working on getting myself upside down too - handstands and headstand - and I can say that doing SimpleFit has definitely helped me with the strength (core stability and shoulders and whatnot) to be able to execute handstands... I'm not all the way there yet, but I'm practicing l...

Week 5 - Easy Week

This week ended up being an easy week. I spent the past weekend at the All Points West festival in NYC, and when I got back, my body felt all sorts of screwy, both from training and from standing hours on end at the festival. Took the week off, basically. Week 5 - Easy Week Monday, August 11, 2008 L...

Week 3

I'm traveling from tonight till Sunday (the next 5 days), so I kind of truncated my week. Did L2D1 and then (as per vbm's advice), did L3D3 (skipped D2 because of the not-having-time thing). Week 3 Saturday, July 26, 2008 Hauled logs for 2 hours: Um. Lots of logs. 2 hours. Okay, so it wasn't a regim...
