    Hindu Squats 100

    Hindu Push-ups 100

    Bridging 100

    squat thrust with push-ups 100

    & decided to add 100 Squat Assisted Chin-ups to the mix.

    Taking about 1:02:49

    Though I am debating weather do this, inverted Rows or both at the same time?

    Also on the 2 days I haven't posted I tried doing Indian club exercises & will try and do them more on my off days and maybe some other days after my workout.

    Hindu Squats 100

    Hindu Push-ups 100

    Table Bridges 100

    squat thrust with push-ups 100

    & decided to add 100 inverted rows, which definitely working on my arms (especially on my biceps) and back.

    Taking about 55:48

    Though thinking more about it I am trying to decide on the the inverted rows and Squat assisted Chin-ups as in should I include the rows after my Hindu push-ups or to do it after the table bridging or to keep it after the squat thrusts. Also deciding about the squat assisted chin-ups, as thinking if keeping that after the squat thrusts but trying to figure out to weather do it till 100, or do it for 10 minutes? So any suggestions or is it a try and see how it feels type of situation?

    I was also was doing these exercises afterwards to try them out, for more stuff for my arms and traps.

    Body Resistance Bicep Curls

    [​IMG]

    Directions from Molding a Mighty Arm (1932) by George F. Jowett:

    “Stand erect with feet together and clasp the left hand in the right in front of the body with the palm of the right hand facing directly forward and the arms held straight down by the sides. From this position turn the right hand on the wrist upward in a cupping motion so the space between the hand and the forearm is shortened. Now begin to bend the arm at the elbow and raise the right hand toward the right shoulder. Throughout this motion press down with all the power of the left arm to resist the upward trend of the right arm. This will bring the right arm biceps into play very forcibly in order to overcome the left hand pressure. When the right hand is curled to the shoulder allow the arm to return back to the original position, but in doing so, resist the downward action, this time by pulling up with the left hand.

    Perform this exercise reversing the hands so as to develop both arms equally.


    Half a dozen repetitions will give you some idea of the effect this exercise has upon the biceps.”

    Isometric Tricep Extension

    [​IMG]

    Directions from Molding a Mighty Arm (1932) by George F. Jowett:

    “Another triceps wakener is to grasp the wrist of the right hand by the left hand, passing the left arm across the small of the back. Stiffen the right arm and lift backwards trying to break the grip of the left hand. You will not be able to lift high but the triceps kick should be strongly felt.”

    Body Resistance Shoulder Shrugs

    [​IMG]

    Directions from Molding a Mighty Back (1932) by George F. Jowett:

    “Here is an exercise I always enjoy and one that I have practiced all my life. In fact, it was one of the first group of exercises I ever practiced. You may not care for it as much as some other, but I liked it because I could get tremendous resistance from it.

    I first adopted the position of hands clasped behind the back, then drew the shoulders forward and allowed the chin to sink upon the chest. I would then tense and forcibly bring the shoulder blades together as much as I could, throwing back the head as this was done. See Fig. 15. This I would repeat anywhere from twelve to eighteen times, giving complete contraction and extension of these powerful shoulder muscles.”

    I am struggling with the Shrugs as I don't feel I fully understand.

    And this as a finisher after the main routine.

    I've done 30 pushups a day since January 1, 2017. Just to tell someone! But also do bench press, dips, flies and such once or twice a week. Also, freezing cold shower upon waking. Discipline, you know.

    Forgotten to mention I also did the reverse Curl of this exercise for my forearm.

    Thinking of doing more than 6 reps for biceps and forearms.

    Inverted Underhand Grip Rows 100

    Table Bridges 100

    squat thrust with push-ups 100

    Taking about 54:58

    Added the underhand grip rows into my routine instead of doing after the squat thrusts. Will see how well this does for my routine and also work on different angles to see if I can go lower on the rows

    Also Done these

    20 reps for biceps

    10 for forearms

    Feel I need a bit more work on keeping focus on the 2 hands going against eachother more.

    I thought about this kind of routine, I started with the most difficult variation (for example first One-arm-Pushup after warmup) and then I go to softer variations after each one. Otherwise the difficult one can become impossible to do. But meanwhile the pushup-variations are more spontanous ;)

  16. Fair enough, sounds like a good strategy. I'm debating about it myself for of I can't do my rows & looking for alternatives to interchange with my main routine.

  17. Plank: 1 min X 3
    Left Side Plank: 30 seconds X 3
    Right Side Plank: 30 seconds X 3
    25lb Kettle Bell Swings: 25 X 3
    Russian Twists: 30 X 3
    Split Squat w/ 15lb dumbbells, left foot forward: 10 X 3
    Split Squat w/ 15lb dumbbells, right foot forward: 10 X 3
    Romanian Deadlifts w/ 15lb dumbbells: 30 X 1

    Not necessarily in that order. Lots of rest between sets. That's abs, legs, and little bit of lower back.
