What did I work on?

Tested my static max holds for the BL, SL and LS. After 9 weeks of somewhat consistent work, I wasn't able to gain enough strength in order to hold the BL progression for over 1 minute. I wasn't able to do the same for the SL or LS, but they've increased by 10 seconds each.

I guess my strength varies with each position, but either way I'm still making progress, which is great to see.

What did I struggle with?

My handstands. I realised that my core is too weak and I should be focusing building up my core strength through hollow body holds.

What went well?

Holding the BL progress max hold for over 1 minute. It's great to see progress, now I have to repeat the same process for the new progression. I've got a long way to go.

A goal to work towards for next week?

I need to focus on the foundations and build up my core strength with hollow body holds. If I can incorporate that consistently into my workouts it should help with everything else. The same can be said with my back flexibility through bridge exercises.

First, I need to do more research with this.
