19.4 I OWNED you!
Not as In I expect a high finish this week, because realistically I got nowhere near the points I needed to get a good score, but because I gave that workout 100%, bloody loved every second of it, and got a muscle up on my FIRST freaking rep!
I also got a second, which is a equal PB for me, but when my right palm started to rip off, and my left was already off, all the strapping in the world couldn’t stop the pain of having to push almost 100kg down on red raw skin, and even though I got a few more up to the bar, I just couldn’t get my hands around the bar or apply any pressure on them.
Things I took out of this week - * Snatches are fun as hell * Burpees still suck dick and will always be my criptonite * If a 3 minute break is programmed into a workout, it’s not because the designer of the workout was feeling generous, it’s because it’s fucking necessary
* Tearing your palms off is extremely painful and detrimental to your workout, and I now see why people chose to wear gloves
* Still none of my clients are allowed to wear gloves
* With the right technique and coaching, you can get 100 odd kilos up on top of a bar without out of control kipping or chicken winging * It’s amazing what the right support crew can do to your mindset, and how they can push you through, when you’re deep in the pain cave. 😘BIG thanks to -
