I’m so excited!!!
I love it when you accomplish a goal in CrossFit. It’s the best feeling ever!
Like first pull-ups, rope climb, double under, bar muscle-up, etc.
I’ve been trying for a few weeks now to link bar muscle-ups, doing drills off of WodPrep.com‘s suggestions such as starting at the top of a bar muscle up and just practicing.
Today I did two in a row!
It was ugly and sloppy and I definitely “muscled it up”. But I was so happy!
Now, it’s just getting better technique and more and more…
God, do I LOVE CrossFit….
Yesterday, I finally got my first bar muscle up!!
After the Open, I quit practicing them and instead focused on butterfly pull-ups and getting stronger. I was just so frustrated how I was so close yet so far away.
I signed up for an online bar muscle-up course (info HERE), thinking, “I need someone to motivate me or I’ll never do them again.” We had to submit a baseline video so I told a gal at CrossFit to video me–and I almost got one just jumping up and not really trying!
So the one I got I had horrible, horrible form with a classic chicken wing, but I got it!
It was such a confidence boost. I can do one!
Now, with this course and my new confidence, I plan on getting more and more and more!
This is what I love about CrossFit: accomplishing a goal and getting better and better. And there’s always something to improve upon. Always.
