Double CB swipes and free handstands.
Good energy today and I even got to do a full stretchout as my first client overslept and I got paid to stretch. Nice.
Left bicep tendon and shoulder has been behaving so that is a great change from the last couple of months.
One CB torch swing
10 lbs x 5/5
15 lb x 5/5
20 lbs x 5/5
25 lbs x 2/2 pr
15lbs x 5/5
These get tough real real fast. The 15's were very strong and the 20's were much stronger than last week (hence the attempt at 25's) but the 25's,even with a healthy choke up, were TOUGH! especially on the left side. But at least I got some reps in.
Just swinging that club with one arm is no joke.
2 CB Swipes
10's x 10
15's x 10 x 13 sets
x 20 x 1 set ( video)
Nice. This form and groove is coming along very well. Much stronger all the way around. SO cool to get to train this with Tracy too. She did great.
8 sets of 5-8 seconds
5 sets Free Hands
this went very well too. the first eight sets were with a one tap touch against the wall and then into a free HS. The last five were free. the first 2 took 2 attempts to get to the hs. The last 3 were all done on first attempts.
This is key. If you can't do it three times in a row without missing you don''t own it. Today I owned it. Hand strength is key and is coming along very well, as well as delt strength, Crucial for a strong HS.
Can't WAIT to go to MSP next week and teach this bodyweight seminar with Pavel and Max. I've seen lots of data on the participants and almost everybody's main interest in the handstand. Perfect :))
Triceps extension, black band
2 sets of 20
