Following the success of Project Small Fish, I feel now more ready than ever to start another project. This project is an extension of Project Small Fish, and I thus dubbed it “Project Medium Fish”.
Project Medium Fish, like its predecessor, is a mental and physical fitness project. To me, this project is deeply foundational. It’s a challenge to grow myself mentally and physically. It’s a statement. It’s a statement that I am in control, and in my control I shall be disciplined and I shall thrive. I don’t need to rely on a new year’s resolution to motivate me or a gym membership to make me feel better. My mind is now much stronger than three months ago, and I believe that I now have the mind to take this project to completion and many others to come.
Deadline: April 15, 2018
For this project, I decided to follow a program called “The System” by Bar Brothers. As someone who suffered from a shoulder injury, I need to spend more time building my calisthenics foundation, and I think this program will help me build a solid one.
It’s a 12 week program, and by the end of it I should be able to do the following between three different workout sessions:
|Handstand Pushups wall assisted||5||6||40sec|
|Pushups stance shoulder walk outs||10||6||45sec|
|90 Degree Pushups Hold||10sec||6||1min|
In addition, there is a test to compare fitness levels before and after. I did the test today (12/31) and here are my results:
I’ll be reporting my progress as often and as thorough as I can. It’s showtime!
Also, there’s only a few hours left in 2017. Happy new year!
