So instead of using T Swift, I used Guile's theme as my background music for this. 98 unbroken light Hardstyle Snatches in 5 minutes. Debating whether or not to do that again.

Would you say that the theme went with this?

 

I think I would have gotten 100 if it didn't end 30 seconds out. Haha

Working that bad shoulder. Don't know if the pain is from connective tissue damage or just disuse. Hopefully by the end of the year I'll be back to my old ROM.

Getting back on that GB. Just finished F1, and I'm starting to go through F2. Groin pull (I suspect an adductor longus strain) from 6 months ago got worse with rest for some reason, so I'm going to try pushing through the discomfort and just strengthening it.

 

Shoulder is still unstable. Painful with sudden jerks, but can tolerate flexion and extension PVC holds at 1.5x shoulder-width with 5# for 10 seconds. I can also manage Pull-ups, Single Bar Dips, and 50 unbroken KB Snatches with 20#. I can probably start back on my Handstand work, but I'm afraid of the instability if I have to bail, so I'll give that a few more weeks. I think I'll work on really strengthening the low-level mobility elements like Table/Table Rocks, Xiaopengs, SL Windmills, J Curls, and Dislocates by gradually loading them.

 

I was also able to manage S&S the other day with 24kg for Swings and 16kg for Getups, so I'm getting there.

Good. Glad to see that you're taking your time. I'm sure you don't need to hear it from a non-SFG, but do take your time. No sense in all this work if you just wind up getting hurt more/worse/again.

Thanks. Hey, I'm not that pretentious. All it really tells me is someone has a bit of cash and can do a Snatch test.

I feel like anyone who isn't familiar with this forum would be very confused by this sentence.....

Finally finished F2 today. That Straddle Planche has been holding me back for a while now. I've been sporadic in my training with this skill for the past 6 years. I've been able to get it for a few seconds on a good day, but never really anything solid. I'm thinking I should hit that and the Free Handstand (which has also been a weakness) twice a week, while hitting the bare minimum once-a-week on the other skills.

 

I happen to teach my fitness classes on Wednesday. This day in particular, I'm expecting a bit of a turnout. It's going to be a long day, but after that it's 3 days all to myself.

I imagine you probably see an uptick tonight with a bunch of people trying to justify their excesses tomorrow. Burn 'em out! Soviet-style, of course. (That means playing the Soviet national anthem while they do KB swings until they die).

Saw GB was showing off Leo's progression on Straddle Planche the other day. So bad ass. Also, the fact you can manage that position even for a few seconds ANY days is truly amazing.

Not many showed up. Weird. But It was definitely easier to manage. I did smash them with some relatively low-skill unconventional movements. 10 minutes of sandbag Get-ups; 10 minutes of Bear Hug Walk, Bear Crawl, Farmer Walk; then 10 minutes of single KB C&J, which they were surprisingly able to pull off. Hit my other GB stuff after. Hollow Back Press will not be moving forward until I get this Handstand going.

Yeah, I remember when we were starting and started our still-standing race to Manna. He is much more focused than I am and he's attended several seminars, but I have the physical build for it. I'm hoping I can pull an upset. He blows me out of the water with anything Handstand-related, but I have a solid Front Lever, which he has trouble with, and I think I have him on the Iron Cross.

You only need one arm to bail. :D

You guys are amazing.

Ah that's annoying. I'd suggest learning to bail on the other side but for me at least that'd be practically impossible! 

 

I'd probably much sooner be reincarnated as a left-handed person than be able to learn to switch.

I always talk about not really belonging to any group but having a foot in every one, and the handedness is actually a great example, being cross-dominant. I write brush teeth with my left but write with my right. I shoot rifles with my left but pistols with my right. I box southpaw, but grapple orthodox. Just a whole lot of weird going on there.

I am almost completely right dominant, but I snowboard/skateboard goofy, fence lefthanded and favor my left hand doing handstands, cartwheels, macacos, etc..  No idea why

I am lefthanded, but do some everyday things with my right and am distinctly terrible at Aikido techniques lefthanded. Bodies are weird, yo.

Ha I'm exactly the same. :D (Except for fencing maybe, I've never tried it.) For handstands/cartwheels I do know why though, it's because my splits are better on that side which means I can be lazier in the kick.
