"Nate"

Complete as many rounds in twenty minutes as you can of:
2 Muscle-ups
4 Handstand Push-ups
8 2-Pood Kettlebell swings

7rounds 2MU 4HSPU's 5KB

last time I got 11rounds and a MU

It was the HSPU's. I got the first two rounds unbroken. Then it was 2's then it was singles and a kip from my head. I only ''missed'' 2 reps. But I had to kip from the bottom.

MU's I missed one rep from sweaty hand, it slipped and my hand shot arround so I dumped it.

KB swing all unbroken.

It was good. I wish my hspus were better of course. but real happy with the rest of it. I'm even happy with the HSPU's. I haven't done a single one to the floor in months.

Great work Nik, you were worried about the swings yet they were the easiest part and unbroken for you. Guess its time to put a few hspu's in your breaks, they are so stubborn to improve.

You are 100% right. KB and MU's were a break.

And you are right, Now HSPU's are back on the menue. I HAVE to get them back and better then they were.

I know but I've gone 11 days without rest so I forced myself. If I go a full 2 weeks I'm just exhausted.

Oh and I ordered the Greg Everett dvd on Olympic Weightlifting and got it in the mail today. I'm so excited!!

Oh Nice. Let me know what you think of it. Any tips that you come across , pass it on.

I was just giving you crap on the rest day. I use to not take them, and I burned out. So no matter how good I feel I really try to take them. I still end up with a workout here and ther on a rest day.

Exactly. It isn't the exercize that builds muscle, it is the recovery. .
