WOW! I can't believe it has only been one month of training. I feel like I have been doing this routine for ages lol. I'm definitely looking forward to changing things up after I complete this mesocycle in another 2 weeks.
I feel like I'm not progressing as much on some of the exercises. However, I'm glad I've been videoing myself each week and keeping my detailed training log as I can look back and see the progress.
You can check out my training log and programming for this mesocycle here:

Wow! This week has been a whirlwind. After making my progress update video last week, I realized that I must be doing something wrong in my training. For having worked every day for 6 months and not having that much to show for it, I decided to look for some books on programming. I came across Steven Lowe's Overcoming Gravity on Amazon. The reviews were awesome and I decided that it would be well worth spending $50 to check it out.
Thank goodness for Amazon Prime. I read the book in 24 hours (yes, I stayed up most of the night it was that good). I took copious notes and was blown away. I was accidentally sent the 1st edition instead of the 2nd. It was good, but now that I have the 2nd edition in my hands, I can say it is a far superior resource. So make sure you get the 2nd edition. This link will take you to the 2nd edition.
I learned several things from this book:
1) I was overtraining
2) I was training for endurance, not strength
3) My training was not balanced
Hi Guys! I've been working hard to nail my handstand press. It has been a bucket list item for me for years, but I really didn't have any plan to achieve it. I mean I had taken courses on Alo moves called "Quest for the Press," but most of the training moves were impossible for me to even execute. When I discovered Brian's Handstand Press course (message me and I'll give you the deets and make an intro to Brian--yes, he pays me a small commission if I refer you and you end up signing up), and it promised a system that would help me get my handstand press within 3 months, I was all ears.
The program cost me $5k and it ended up being a 6-month course. Unfortunately, I didn't end up getting my handstand press, but I did gain considerable strength, a greater understanding of what I needed to work on in order to get my handstand press, some incredible friends, an upgraded mindset, and an increased determination to achieve my handstand press. Most importantly, it inspired me to...
