Today’s Training

This is a deload week for the Foundation and Handstand programs, so everything drops to 1/2 volume; it’s also my last encounter with my nemesis, the first progression for the Hollow Body Press, incline pushups… 75 reps in a 3-4 minute window was not doing it for me.

20 minutes soft-tissue work: scapula, traps, rear delts, pecs
5 minutes double lacrosse ball T-spine mobilization
Squat work (mostly weighted), hip mobility
3×10 weighted pancake good morning (30 lbs.)
Shoulder pre-hab
F7 (no squats)

More squatting
QDR practice in between
100 reps w/ Trainer gripper, sets of 5

QDR is starting to feel pretty good, I played around with extending my legs out for a bit, and did some 10s tuck holds as well.

Wrist warmup/prep
QDR practice (tucked 5s holds, alternating, about 10 reps per side)
Floreio workout 1 (tried to do rotations into low bridge, fail)


The QDR holds are improving, still a little intense on my wrists. After a few days of practicing rotations into low bridge on the wall along with low bridge slides, I tried to do a full rotation into low bridge on the floor…. suffice to say it was discouragingly awkward. I think I have more work to do. Boulder flooded hard this week, so I took Thursday off the help take care of our house, which, thankfully, had pretty minimal damage.
