Tuesday 18th March

Today as my upper body is aching all over decided to concentrate on legs.

WOD: 400m treadmill - 50 squats for 4 rounds = 10.28 (previous 11.35)

Back Squat: BW 90kg 8 x tabata, only got 4 reps on last two rounds.
Overhead Squat: light weight (50k) for four sets just to work on form.

Very pleased as the useless treadmill kept shutting off while i was squatting so had to start from standstill each time.

Sounds great Richard goin to California, i went when i was too young to enjoy it properly and before i knew Xfit existed. I also have a pain in my wrist now caused by the false grip. I think its very hard on the wrists if your not use to it! And congratulations on finding out what was limiting your handstands. I havent quite touched the ground with my forehead yet so thats my next goal.

Perseverance, that's all the HSPU are about. I practice them randomly during the day now, all I need is a wall, isn't that fantastic ? ^^

Good job on the OHS, I really love those because they Don't allow any flaws in the form !

FIGHT GONE BAD

Wall Ball 10k: 32/30/27 = 89
SDHP: 23/17/17 = 57
Box Jumps: 27/24/24 = 75
Push Press: 18/17/16 = 51
Row: 17/14/16 = 47
117 102 100 = 319

Not sure how many inches box was as used the bench so made up for it with extra 2 pound on wall ball, SDHP and Push press.

Finally got my first forehead to the ground on the HSPU x2 hoping for 10 by next week as they seem to be improving fast. I think ive earned one dancing chill pepper today :pepper:

30 Muscle Ups

After nearly pulling a Rugby goal down and freezing to death i decided to do this WOD in the gym.

After taking about 15 minutes to complete 8 Muscle ups as only just managed my first one last week , my right elbow started giving me more and more pain so i switched to the chins and dips.

8 Muscle ups
22 x 4 chins then 4 ring dips = 42.19

This i know is very slow but it was more like a war for me to get through. Next time muscle ups come up though i will be much more ready for them.

Cheers Richard and hope your wrist heals fast, I know how frustrating it can be when you are so up for it but injuries get in the way!!

I so underestimated this lady and she kicked my ***. Round 1 i could not count so done 40 push ups which at the time i thought oh well its only 10 extra. Then by round 3 my sit ups started to really suffer which is strange for me as its one of my strongest exercises. Round 4 and i was feeling sick and headache with pumping veins in my forehead and Round 5 i went through on auto pilot.

I planned to do some shoulder work afterwards but was totally spent.:eek:

Five rounds for time 3 mins rest in between
20 Chins - 30 PUsh ups - 40 Situps - 50 Squats
Round 1 = 3.45 (10 extra push ups)
Round 2 = 3.43 feeling ok
Round 3 = 4.07 pukie is peeping
Round 4 = 4.55 pukie is watching
Round 5 = 5.59 no puke but headache pumping veins etc
Total without rests = 22.29

My paper i wrote this on looks like a five year olds handwriting.
