Muscle Beach Updates
Santa Monica is hitting a really bad heat wave the past few days. Although not as bad as the Inland Empire, it is still tough to do the beach workout outside when the humidity is really high. Regardless, I just suck it up and do the beach workout right after doing Body Beast’s Bulk: Leg, and oh boy, I do not recommend doing a 4 hour workout at all!
The Handstand Pushups: While I’ve been mastering this routine for a couple of years now, I used to have difficulties stabilizing myself on the stand that I can only do the pushups if I had someone to spot me. But as of yesterday, I broke my very own personal record and did 8.5 reps. The form is not the most cleanest, but hey, not bad still 🙂
The Scorpion Pose: This is one of the most extreme Yoga poses. I guess I just need to work on the flexibility of my lower back even more to achieve the proper form.
And of course, the new thing that I’m going to conquer – the Iron Cross! I dont know how those Olympian gymnasts do it, but I have high respect for them. I do believe that gymnastics is one of the hardest sports in the world. My goal is to be able to do this within a year.
