Getting Your Butt Kicked by Dumbbells…

One of my weaknesses:  dumbbells.

I did dumbbell thrusters today and hang clean and jerks.Image result for dumbbells

And got my butt whipped!

I’ve become pretty good at dumbbell snatches because we do them more often.  But not these movements.

I need to add them in at least once every week or two weeks.

So much to do…

 

I’m Not Ready for the Open…

I hit the gym and did my own workout.

Dumbbell thrusters and dumbbell push press.

Oh.  My.  God.

It was hard.

I haven’t done dumbbell thrusters since September.  We don’t have enough equipment so my gym never programs them.

I have to practice these.  At least once a week I’ve realized.

My friend mentioned I should strive for Regionals.  I have all the skills.  The strength.  The stamina.

What I don’t have though matters:

Dumbbell proficiency.

I’ve realized in the past few days there’s a lot I have to work on.

Being a Games athlete is a full-time job.

I’m just not sure I want CrossFit to be it.

Something to think about and pray about…
