    Kaioken times 2! [DoubleTrouble]

    Woah penny drops are cool too That's what happened the first time I tried them a while back! I was scared of going backwards (not even halfway) so I just left, came back a few days later, and did it first try. I checked head clearance before I started but there's probably a hidden worry still there. I'll try it on a higher bar next time ------- I'll work on this hanging knee pull next week: I picked up some paint and polyurethane (the protective coating) today and I'll start painting the vault boxes tomorrow. It's a long weekend which means I'll get extra painting done do nothing with the extra day. Physio MTWTF Isometrics/bouhler MTWTF Gym Mon Wed Parkour Tue Thu

    Tried some BNGs after work. I thought I'd warm up with a few ones where I only go halfway, and then go for the full one and do the stuff described in the videos (moving butt back, the wrist thing, etc). Except that as soon as I tried going for the full one, the FEAR CAME BACK. It felt like I was trying them for the first time again. I couldn't go past the halfway point without my feet hitting the ground. I lost my grip once and punched the ground, luckily there's a lot of snow so it didn't hurt too much. I'm not sure if my shoulder can handle this move.

    Ugh you can do flyaways? I'm jealous Yeah the first one was scary. After that its not bad Ooh I want to try those! I found a more detailed tutorial (and another one). I can't wait for work to be over so I can go try it again

    I did some vaults and stuff afterwards. There was an area with a rail for a wheelchair ramp and a small wall. I tried baby knee giants during my lunch break at work. My knees kept coming off the rail at the lowest point of the spin so I wasn't able to get all the way around. I'll watch the video before trying again

    So far so good... There was a big snowstorm yesterday so I ended up training indoors at a university. It was my first second time training indoors this winter (I went to an indoor obstacle course once) and I think the university cancelled classes so there weren't many students around. I found one of the dance studio rooms had left the door unlocked so of course I went in there, put some music on, and performed some slick dance routines. Micheal Jackson would be proud. jk I had no idea what I was doing Physio MT Isometrics/bouhler MT Gym Mon Parkour Tue Planning to pick up some paint for the vault boxes on Friday, not sure about the colour(s), I was thinking black with a green top. I've never done this before, hopefully it turns out ok. Also, I updated the first post in the thread to include some more detail.

    Hi! A little recap: I joined the rebellion in September 2017. I don't remember how I found out about it, but there was a 4 week challenge starting soon so I jumped in. A few challenges later, I dislocated my shoulder when my foot slipped during a running precision. I was not working at the time so for the next few months, I did physio, slept, and tried to learn more about my injury. I kept doing challenges during that time because it gave me something to focus on. I got an office job and found that my coworkers tolerated exercise while at work so I kept doing physio. Occasionally my cubicle-neighbor and I do exercises together (squats and some other stuff with light 5-10 lb dumbbells). My other coworker brought in a wobble board for me to use as well, which I usually use for a shoulder stability exercise. Main quests Physio: 3 exercises using a green theraband (external rotation, front pull aparts, overhead pull aparts). Goal: 19/19 weekdays Isometrics/bouhler exercises described here (also this one): Goal: 19/19 weekdays Gym twice a week: I'm planning to do calf raises (bent and straight leg) and face pulls. Usually I also do lat pull downs, rows, and hamstring curls. Parkour (after work) twice a week: I usually practice during my lunch break at work (unless its really really cold or I'm sick). This is fine to maintain my current skill but I have to put in some more time if I want to expand my skillset. I'm thinking about baby knee giants and swing backflips (which, I'm ashamed to admit, I'm scared to do). Side quest Paint two vault boxes: I've been putting this off for a while. I sanded the edges and the handle holes, now I just need to prime/paint and also coat it with protective polyurethane layer(s).
