Thanks for the comment in my food log. Unfortunately I not as strong will, I had some cookies today; wish I would have read your comments first. Your progression in the program is looking good.

L1D1 3 jumping pullups, 6 pushups to desk, 3 squats 30 rounds

I like having day 1 behind me, now I've got 6 whole days before I've got to do it again :wink:

Ok next week will be rest week and I am researching GTG, planning on doing that for pushups.

Hmmm, this looks interesting http://www.geocities.com/dirtyley/dagm100.htm http://www.specialtactics.com/MILFIT4.pdf

Now I just need to decide which method to try.

Nice workout! What type of planks are you doing? Elbows to the ground or hands on a med. ball? The one legged squats are very impressive. This reminds me to try messing with these on my off days again. I'm still to afraid to even attempt one unassisted. Did you use a particular method to build up to these?

Hi dj_emerald, thanks for stopping by.

I mix my planks up quite a bit, on my hands, on my elbows I can only hold them with good form for about 20-30 secs, my core is my weakest part. They actually seem to be getting harder not easier, I'm hoping thats because my form is getting better :? I only do them about twice a week.

Re: the one legged squats don't be too impressed I only go to just below parallel and have the other toe down for balance. I just started doing them one day a week and as each week goes by I find I am relying on that one toe less and less. I also do these pretty slow.

Kevin posted a good tip for me that I haven't tried yet :oops: which was to do them on a chair holding onto my pullup bar for balance. Come to think of it hanging onto a bit of dowel would probably work too.

Give them a go, you might be pleasantly surprised.

Thanks for the info! I threw some planks into my workout today. Forgot how hard they are. Will try messing with the one-legged squats a bit on my rest day. Cheers!

That Pavel's ladder is neat! I'm going to get my husband to partner with me on it.

Yeah, I like the idea of ladders too! I always seem to forget about GTG as the day wears on so this sounds perfect.

I'm still confused about exactly how the ladders work. I'll have to do some more reading on this. Very intriguing though.
