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….
I have all these lofty goals after the Open and I feel like I’m slacking.
I’ve pretty much got my butterfly pull-ups dialed in. I’m working on kipping chest-to-bar and am frustrated because my kip sucks so I can’t quite reach the bar. I really just want to butterfly them so am undecided on how to concentrate my energy.
Bar muscle-ups. My nemesis. I’ve quit for about a month now but now it’s time to up my game on them. I’m so close. So very, very close! I can’t give up. I can’t get frustrated. Because I have them. I just have to string together all the elements.
Practicing my double understanding about 3 times a week so that’s good.
I matched my PR on my squat snatch today 3 times. I have to get over that mental block.
Jerks are still inhibiting me. Once it gets over 85 pounds I struggle with multiple reps. My new plan: is add a little weight at a time. Add 2 pounds. Then 4. Then 7, etc. Going from 85 to 95 is killing me and frustrating me. It’s so bad!
Throw in that I’m unsure what to do with the rest of my life as well and well, I can be pretty depressed to be around as well. Writing. Finance. Who knows? But right now I’m focusing on getting better at CrossFit. Cause when CrossFit is going good, then I’m going good.
