  • Plyometric pull-ups. Building up to clapping pull-ups. Warmed up with a minute of monkey bar fun, swinging back and forth and just roving back and forth like a hanging monkey. Then did several sets of tossing my body into the air and getting my hands off the bar before grabbing back on. I don't know how I'm going to move my arms while I'm airborne, they are stiff as iron! I can barely do a sidecrawl because of how my muscles lock up and turn to stone while working out. It's AMAZING for body building, but not terribly useful for functional, fast arm work. I stretch and move through full range of motion between sets and after workouts, but even though my general mobility is great, I just can't move my arms quickly once I've been exerting strong force. Any ideas?

                    • Just finished SimpleFit Level 3, Day 1:

                      2 pull ups
                      3 push ups
                      5 squats

                      I did 51 rounds in 20 minutes.

                      Later, I'll be lifting 3x5:

                      Bent-over row - 170 lbs.
                      Upright row - 145 lbs.
                      Push ups - 3 sets to failure
                      Shoulder push ups - 3x5

                      And 1 set of 5, then 2 sets of 3:

                      Deadlift - 265 lbs., then 280 lbs.

                          • Did Cathe HIIT 30/30. Since I hate cardio, it seemed like a short and sweet workout. I developed a wicked side stitch halfway through, so couldn't go all out. I was still dripping though!

                              • Today I did my very first Cathe, Maximum Intensity Strength. Sometimes I break it up b/c it is so long, but today I did the whole thing. From warm up to stretch it's about 90 minutes. Tough stuff! (Quoting Cathe here.)
