[quote=Charles Bennington;478095]Remember how you fought and fought with that disappearing single pull-up in the not so distant past? You're one of my WOLog inspirations![/quote]

Hi, Chuck! Yup, I remember all too well. What is so amazing is that it seems if one can keep whittling away at it, their "shortcomings" get resolved. My shoulders have been so tight and weak and I have come to realize that my lower lats are also weak. Well.........my lower lats now are sore like they never have been and I really am feeling all those PUs in my shoulders.

I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and for all the amazing things you post here in your log. You are doing stuff I'd never dream the human body would be capable of. [I][B]Rock on, my friend. Merry Christmas![/B][/I]

Snow, snow, snow. What, do you live in the mountains or something? HA! Rest is good, but doing the WOD when sore is not necessarily "bad". I think you're of sufficient age to know the difference though!

Merry Christmas to you and yours as well Steve! Here's to a great 2009!

Hi Steve. Great Kipping work! Just curious...Are you doing the "hip kip" or the gymnastics kip?

Have a great holiday!

Yo Robert!

[I][B]Snow, snow, snow. What, do you live in the mountains or something? HA! [/B][/I]The resident forum comedian today! Rock on!

You are absolutely correct on going ahead and doing the WOD, even if sore. My shoulders, biceps, and lower lats are so sore though, I could barely move at times yesterday. Ibuprofen was my best friend........'Course, my grip was fried too, but I didn't realize that until I tried to horse that snowblower around. You have to hold the auger and drive levers down - - there is no lock. Almost needed another person to pry my hands off the machine........Hey, on the good side, I know my WO paid off. I worked the things that needed work. Now to GTG......

Blessings to you and yours!

Hi Helen,

Boy, you've got me there. Is there a difference? :D

I need to go to the gymnastics links on the CF Main Page and look that up. Whichever I am doing, it sure is efficient. I really feel the lack of flexibility in my shoulders and my poor lower lat strength. My biceps also could use work. Funny how you pray for things, then they all of a sudden fall into place (Yea!! Kips!!). Then you [I][B]"FEEL"[/B][/I] your shortcomings. It's like, "Yup, I [I][B]knew[/B][/I] I needed to work on those areas!!

Take care and enjoy your Christmas! Gotta cook, bake, and ensure I don't partake.......kinda rhymes, doesn't it!
