Air Dyne as Recovery

Workout of the Day

WOD 1 - in the morning...

2 mile air dyne @ 3000 RPM

WOD 2 - in the afternoon...

Bar muscle up practice

The name of the game today was moderation.  A little time on the air dyne to get the blood moving and some skill practice in the afternoon to figure out some technical cues.  Made some real improvement on the bar muscle up by watching the way gymnasts get up on a bar.  For some reason it never clicked how to time the hip pop on this movement until tonight.  All of a sudden things felt different, and a lot easier.  I think the limiting factor from now on will be my grip, and that's a good problem to have.

  1. I love moderate days. My box does this every Thursday, and we work on mobility and additional skills/goats. It's how I got good at double unders, muscle ups, hand stand pushups, rope climbs, etc.

    Congrats on getting the bar muscle ups! Have you found the bar muscle ups to be harder or easier than ring muscle ups?
