Re: RPR's workout log


I have been hitting it hard since December with Lifeline's TNT cable workout, alternating with the Reg Park cable workout, a pyramid cable workout, and some suspension strap work.

Two weeks ago I did what I usually do this time of year. I kicked into a DT style workout.

Atlas squats
push ups using the perfect push up handles
all the exercises in lesson 1
Atlas back rows
the shoulder exercises
regular curl
triceps press downs
reverse curls
the neck exercises
toe raises

This is a closed forum so I can go into some detail on the DT work. But I'll start with saying that in my experiments with them these past few years I've come to believe they are high rep exercises. I think I'll do a daily entry on on a specific exercise and tell how I do it.

Re: RPR's workout log


it may be a closed forum, but i accidentally found it the other day while looking for something else. i typed in something about atlas and found a link to something i posted here. i didn't have to log in to find it. if caltd wanted to bad enough, they could find this forum without logging in nor having a runboard account.

Re: RPR's workout log


they could probably type in our user names in a search and see what is happening. i don't put it past bridge(bob)
searching for another board like i created and not join, but just spy on us to see what we are writing and maybe try and report it. he has no life anyways and is a totally intolerant, vindictive little lib. i have the perfect push up handles but have not used them yet. i also have a set of push up bars as well. i can't believe that you have such harsh words for such a philosophical and ingenuitive man like jp, bob emoticon. as long as you don't specifically explain how to do dt exercises, you are ok. you are only advertising that you do them and which one's you are doing, not how to do them. keep up the great work, bob.

Re: RPR's workout log


I don't doubt we're spied on.

I use push up handles because I fractured my right elbow years ago and can't fully straighten my right arm or have full rotation in the wrist. Handles have made it easier to do push ups. I have a regular set I bought years ago made by Go Fit. About 2 years ago I bought the perfect push up handles and really like them. The rotating base takes a bit of getting used to, but they seem to hit the shoulders more, but are easier on the rotators. One other thing about them. You cannot do as many push ups with them as you can any other way. I don't know why.

The Perfect Push Up handles ( PPU from here on ) come with a good plan for working out with them. It goes from beginner to advanced. You can get other workouts from their site.

A few weeks ago I bought Lifeline's Jungle Gym. It's a suspension training device like the TRX. The Jungle Gym ( JG from here on) actually came out first. Lifeline is on the leading edge with functional strength equipment and workouts. The JG acts a lot like the PPU when you use it, so the handles move with you. They aren't rigid, which is a good thing. You can use them for assisted pull ups to strengthen yourself to do regular pull ups, and you can use them to stabilize yourself for doing one legged squats. They are very versatile. If I could only have one piece of equipment it would be the JG.

Push ups haven't been a part of my workout in about 9 months. When I start them I always begin with them off the knees. Once I get to 20 with the PPU I go to the toes. I found it's always better to ease into an exercise routine than dive in. I usually get an injury when I dive in. I engage my brain first. Even though I have been using the elastics for chest presses and pulls, they are different than push ups, so I ease into them.

Presently I'm at 15, starting at 10. I seem to be able to add a rep about every other day, but that will slow up to maybe one a week as I progress. Atlas and Reeves said the same thing, don't strain. You'll progress, just go with your body and don't force it. Better to be safe than sore and unable to do anything.

that's my experience too. do any of you use them pushup handles with suction cups on them that enables one to stick them to the ceiling to use as pullup handles? one would would have to weigh very little in order to use them on my ceiling. i weigh over 200 - there's no way i'd use them on the ceiling.

Re: RPR's workout log


I deleted the post on my technique for SRs. Those of you here have read it, and I'm not giving anything else away to BB guys that might be lurking. If anyone here want me to elaborate PM me.

I wouldn't use the suction cup things either Mothom.

Today is Saturday. I'm doing my JG basic workout. All body weight.

warm up
assisted pull ups
incline push ups
triceps dips
body rows

It's a 2 circuit workout, 10-15 reps with a 90 sec. rest between circuits. A good break from the SRs, which if you do them right you need a rest. The JG basic workout is only done once a week. You have to get used to it. It really gets the core, and it prepares you for more advanced workouts.
