Funny, how I can be fast here and I struggle so bad on other workouts?!?! i have been thinking about that all day.

Oh and yes the video helped. I did'nt just do the workout. I did'nt feel sorry for myself during the 15 thrusters, I fought, I fought my mind telling me to put the bar down.

I don't know, maybe knowing it will be a 3 to 4 min workout that I can push harder? I'm not sure, but I will be working on keeping that intensity.

Also it is kind of cool to see the list lined up to see pogresses and even relapses.

I'm chuffed.

rest day

8 minute amrap:
12 Overhead Squats 45k
10 Toes to bar


5 rounds 8OHSs

OHSs unbroken
toe to bar first 2 mayby 3 rounds unbroken then 5s and what ever I could get.

Funny thing on the toe to bar. Once I break I can't get the swing/timing right after. Then I start doing the double swing at the bottom for each rep. I do'nt know what I'm not doing right after it breaks.

Myself and a lot of other people at the gym are the same. Once that kip goes for one rep it seems impossible to get it back. It's as though the rebound at the bottom just disappears. I tried to recover from it yesterday but the second rep was nearly a miss so I went back to singles in the latter rounds.

I though it was just me. I thought it was just that I was'nt use to it and just don't know where my body is and can't generat the right form. I will be working on it and try to figure out how to get it back. There has to be something that fatigues and can be worked arround.

A.M. warmup

change up


3 rounds
10 GHDs
10 back ext
10 abmatt situps
7 HSPUs
10 deadhang pullups (first round wide C2B, second close over hand, third close undr hand)
10 squat


after that I did 30 reps pushups because I forgot to add them in.

This warmup like this was way easier then 30 reps of each, and was fun too. Still I felt like I cheated breaking it up though.

Not your mistake Nik, Rob forgot how many OHS he programmed as the site was down so your score is stronger As Matt said everyone loses the kip on t2b at some point, I put it down to breathing hard and core breach, just got to get some extra core work in, I have lately to build up my t2b and kte stamina.

Eh the OHSs were fine, so no real mistake there. I like the OH work anyway, I need it.

Yea, on the t2b though. I ''feel'' like it is something that can be over come. Find the right rythum and be able to get back in to it. We will see. I will be working on them.
