– Full Body Stretch: 20m

I was sore after this.

End of a long rest. I was supposed to do 6-8 days. I ended up doing 4, and then 7 days.

Strength Training: Legs
– Bar Squats: 3×8 @ 45, 65, 100/95 lb
– Leg Press: 3×8 @ 298, 388, 478 lb
– Deadlift: 3×8 @ 95 lb

– Full Body Stretch: 20m

Strength Training: Backs/Bi
– Pulls Ups: 3×4, 1×3
– Bent Over Rows: 3×8 @ 25, 30, 30lb per arm
– Seated Hammer Curls: 3×8 @ 15lb per arm

Get Bent
– Front & Middle Splits
– Shoulder Warm Up & Stretch
– Back Bend

2016 60-Day July-August Backbend Challenge: Baseline
– Cobra
– Camel
– Bridge
– Lunge Backbend

I’m aiming for level 3-4 on these poses for this challenge. We only have to do it 3 days a week which is way better than 5. I’m going to be doing the whole Get Bent and Easy Flexibility video for four days a week, and strength training 3 days a week.

I definitely noticed some tightness in the shoulders. That’s probably from being back in the gym, and I think I will be able to overcome it easily. I’m hoping to make the most progress on my bridges this time, followed by camel, then the lunge, and lastly camel.

I was pretty close, especially in my left side, to touching the ground in my front splits, but I didn’t warm up at all, just did a few of the stretches quickly. Middle split was ridiculous, but I didn’t do but 3 of the stretches.
