Made some big progress today in a couple areas. 1) I got the glide kip down. FINALLY. Took some dedicated work and a lot of video analysis, but getting up on top of a bar using momentum rather than strength is now in the arsenal.
2) I had 245# over my head not once, but twice today with a legitimate chance to make the lift. I didn’t make it either time, but they were both good misses. The weight didn’t feel too heavy, and I was fast under it on each occasion. This gives me a ton of confidence that I am very close to snatching 250#, which is a lifetime goal.
3) I pushed my aerobic capacity past the point of comfort and my body responded. The burpee ladder with 60 yard runs in between had me sucking gas hard, but I never had to break the burpees. The runs got progressively slower, I admit. Not sure there’s any way around this. But my overall time of 11:15 is something I’m happy with. 110 burpees and 1200 yards of running is a lot of work done in that amount of time.
Heading to watch my alma mater in a local high school basketball showdown with their cross-town rivals. Go Cougars!
