Updated Regime

A fairly stable mixture.

With the garage still serving as a storage facility, my workouts are reaching a fairly stable mixture of bodyweight and occasional weighted work. The bodyweight workouts usually comprise several of the exercises listed below, which will be explained in greater detail in future posts.

In no particular order (and with more to follow soon - once I've had a chance to test them out properly) :

Bathaik (Hindu squat) : until recently these were performed in both conventional and sumo styles; other exercises have now taken the place of sumo Dands.

Sumo squat/side leg raise

Sitting V-up

Push-ups : handstand, inclined, Hindu (Dand) and conventional, diamond, frog

Back bridges

Boot strapper

Flutter kick

Door pull-up

Single-leg (Pistol) squats

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
