Hmm. Two people said their posts got eaten but I've got nothing in the "suspected spam" area so I've got nothing to free if your post got eaten. I dont know!

I'm gonna try one last time and then I give up!

Clean complex: 113 (failed that weight once before and once after I made it, though)
FSQ 150x3x3, which makes me pretty happy since 160 for a single set of 3 was how I hurt my back last cycle. This time, pain free.

Cash out with 20 kg bell and row.

I am not a coach but I think that Zack has really great hip extension - he just needs to work on finishing in a nice overhead position. Happy birthday Adele.

I did some handstands on Monday on the beach in Mass--scary to invert on rocks in gusty wind. Nice to be back on the safe padded floor. Worked kickups in the middle of the room; got a magical tip from McDowell about easing down to the floor which instantly gave me all kinds of better control. V-ups were less magical. Lots of those. HSPUs also kind of sad; did 30 w/ 2 abmats, couldn't string together more than 3 after the first 2 sets. Then the WOD: 48/47/75. Good to have lots of chances to do kipping pullups--need to expose myself to those more often.

Somehow ended up at the 4.30 class today, which was fun! Clean complex- finally got to 103# which is a PR. Not sure what happened as I had never even managed 98# in a group class, but it happened twice, so I'll take it.
Front squats- last week I could not finish the first set at 145# but today I managed 145 x 3 x 3. It felt so good to get that, having bailed last week. Also a PR :)
Did some rowing afterwards and stayed on for AR with Fantastic Mr. Fox.
I may have to come Tuesday evenings more often...though my bike ride home was a bit nippy....brr.

Noticing a difference in my handstands. Inversion Mondays forever!

HSPUs - 40ish with 1 abmat in many sets of 5/4/3. Thanks for the hand positioning tips, Rickke.

211 Reps: 51 pull-ups, 61 burpees, and 99 sit-ups synchronized with Bekka


Cleans from the knees: 128# x 1

HBBS: 135# x 2 - not as hard as I thought but didn't feel great about form

50 kb swings overhead 16kg (25,15,10), 1 mile jog

Shoulder AR w a little help from Serene :)

Trying again

6 am with McDowell

First part went all right. I know I am still broken and that pulls me over instead of allowing me to hold still longer.
V ups on the cushy mat- no swollen and bruised hip bones today. I feel these in my abs more than any other exercise we do.

20 strict hspu- then 30 with one abmat. One abmat makes things so much easier.

56-44-83, 183 reps. The pull ups were the hardest. I just didn't feel like I was getting my distance on the bar set up properly and my swing was off. I need to work these more. This was a really good workout! A+
