How was your Thanksgiving (if you celebrate that), how's your diet, and
how were your workouts this week? Inquiring minds want to know, so out
with it!


Vacation week, no organized training. Swung on the monkey bars with a
six-year-old grand-niece, who was much better at it. Finally found a
leg exercise that my hips seem to like, the dragon walk: walking lunges
with the front foot turned out and the upper body turning from side to
side. Browsed YouTube using the hotel wireless and discovered a new
hero, Farukh Ruzimatov. Ate what was put in front of me, and lived to
write about it.


When you get back to yer 60 sec handstands, and since you are apparently
never going to dip yer elbows sigh, try rocking from side to side, putting
full bodyweight on one arm.

Ahm dyin to try this myself, but I cain't even get up the nerve to do a
regular handstand.... gotta be age, lack of testosterone.... LOL

With practice, one should be able to fully balance on one hand/arm, wihile
up against a wall. Might need a little help, in the beginning. You can
find lotsa youtubies of guys doing these in the middle of a floor. Ossum.
Some pushup off one arm, but I've yet to see a full balanced one-armed
press.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=Z7vHVBkrfEU very ballet-like, a real
studym but no real one-armed pushup attempt. Fascinating study in balance,
center of gravity.

just about break the elbow a degree or two

Much more along these lines.

I'm inspired.... I think I'll nap, until it passes.... LOL


I'm on dialup at home, so it takes me a while to see anything on
youtube, but yeah, there are lots of neat tricks out there. Maybe
someday :-)

Yeah, some of those tricks are proly pretty far away.
But realize that rocking from side to side will just momentarily shift full
body weight to one arm, fwiw.
If supported against a wall, the time on one arm should increase, second by
second, until mebbe one day it's stable.
This qualifies as a kind of Sisco/static contraction, if you believe the
claims made for them.
