It doesn’t seem like a huge feat, and I’ve been able to do Toes to Bar for quite some time now, but… today I did 5 back to back to back to back to back! Just like, non stop! WHAAAAT. I used to do one at a time. T2B, down, turn around, another T2B, down, turn around, another T2B. Like this endless crazy insane rotation til I was done with my reps but nooooooooo. I did 5!!! FIVE!! I was pretty excited about that! Even when I feel like there’s no progress being made, my body surprises me with little gifts here and there.
The workout was the following:
4 Min AMRAP
5 wall balls (20/16) but I used a 20lb ball. NBD.
2 min rest
4 Min AMRAP
5 deadlifts (225/155)
5 lateral bar burpees
My score was 4+4 and 4+6. Happy with that! Especially since it was sort of RX+ with that 20lb wall ball. BEAMING!
The score sucked, but eh. I mean, I don’t know. When I look at the other scores, I’m proud of mine and I’m still reminded that I still have some of the lowest numbers when it comes to gymnastics movements. Wall balls and deadlifts are no big deal, T2B and lateral bar burpees I can do, but they take time, because I’m throwing my 200+lb self around repetitively.
Speaking of my weight.. no I haven’t done anything since the competition. I haven’t dieted, I haven’t not dieted. I’ve just maintained. I haven’t been trying.. or when I do try, I fail. Right around 9p every night. I know I just need to get through the 1st night, but by the time 9p rolls around I’m usually like, fuck it. Whatever. And here starts my endless cycle of no success. AWESOME! Yeah I’m disappointed, but.. whatever. I will get back on track again.
