Thanks Scott, with Martin I didn't have the time to total it up. It puts a heavier feel to the WOD when you max like this. It doesn't feel so ''cheap'' like you did a real work out instead of ''just a max''.



Anyway. I'm glad for the rest day. I am delightfully sore and beatup from the last cycle.
Martin, my dad, and myself are going fishing again this morning, I can't wait for them to wake up so we can go.

Thanks Scott, we had a blast. It is good to get out with the both of them.

By your log it sounds like it was a great night, and well earned!!

Well I'll be taking Martin with me in the morning for ''Ryan'' I hope it goes well for the 5 rounds. He demands alot of my time. On a max that is fine, it isn't timed. Tomarrow will be a trick to stay on time. But what ever it take to get it done.

The last time I did this I did ''assisted'' muscleups, or the progression. This time will be a lot harder. I am still doing the MU from a standing position. Still not from a hang. I have been working on the false grip and pulling myself up to it fore a proper MU, but it still need work.

"Ryan"

Five rounds for time of:
7 Muscle-ups
21 Burpees
Time hahahaha 56:21

I missed/ failed at 19 reps on MU's, at what point do you see your self as stubborn for still going through a WOD even though there is mo Metcon in it. The first 2/3 rounds were ok, I only missed like 4 or 5 reps, 3,4,5. I lost it.

Looking forward to Monday.

Thanks, really. It was tough. It got to a point that I didn't care about anything else but finishing it. Shoulder and elbows are good. My right wrist has a nice fat blister that didn't pop during the worout.

Funny enough that this workout is an improvement from last time. I used bands and did bar MU's.

Yea, the sense of satisfaction was good. It was good to get it done finally. I turned my stop watch over so I couldn't see my time. Antthing to get it done.

I've done that many times myself. In fact there's been times where I don't even time myself. Sometimes it's nice not to have to chase the clock.
