Don’t bother to just be better than your contemporaries or predecessors, try to be better than your self.

Not the prettiest lift in the world, but got it up there at least!

A. WU, from GymnasticsWoD.com:
- 10 Forward Rolls
- 10 Backward Rolls

- 9 HSPU
Total Time: 13’39 min.
So, after way too little sleep and shoulders that felt smoked already during my warmups, I can’t be anything but super pleased with these results!
Gymnasticswod WU was fun and Dave, and the others of you following our challenges as well of course, just a hint: prepare to be rolling next week.. 😉
Haven’t done strict presses in more than 6 months and you can see that my setup isn’t perfect and that I’m wobbling around. Maybe should be doing more of this just to make sure my midline is in place?
Didn’t really beleive I could get the 85-lift since 82,5 was so heavy, and as always, then it’s a mission impossible to get it. Still, one step closer to that dream of pressing 100kg…
Dave’s Challenge! I’m actually quite surprised. Cleans got heavy quite fast, felt yesterdays Front Squats when standing up, pistols was not pretty at all and HSPU’s just smoked me in the end, but all in all I’m very satisfied with the way I kept it together. Think I got about every rep to count, but you can see in the video that my back gets very arched in the Handstands when I get tired and that’s another reason to start working on midline stability in over head mode!
Tomorrow it’s time for a beach-wod, and then it’s time for my deload week. I know I’m repeating my self but really looking forward to it!
PS. Sorry guys, Challenge video takes for ever to upload and I have a bunch of grassfed T-bones that needs to be put on the braai! I just have to post it when I get back tonite, shouldn’t be too late…
