  1. Thank you so much! I'll give those exercises a go, and also thank you for the French climb tip!

  3. Second silks class yesterday. I did an hour of aerial conditioning first which consisted of twisting plank crunches with feet elevated with the siks; inverted sit ups hanging upside down from the silks; pikes from a trapeze bar and vertical pull ups with a rope. Needless to say when I woke up this morning I ached all over! (Any tips to help with that would be appreciated no end!) I also got a little closer to my goal of climbing to the top of the silks! I managed my first french climb and got off the floor CAN I GET A WOOT WOOT?
  4. Missions completed: Go to silks class once a weekFlexibility increasing yoga ......................................................... Didn't manage to eat all paleo today, grandpa made an amazing sponge cake and I just had to try some... oops. Silks class was SO HARD. I completely lack the upper body strength. That's something I hope to improve on. Does anyone have any tips to improve hand and forearm strength?
