        • Upper body training mostly, getting used to using overhand grip as wrapping thumb around bars isn't going to happen for some time yet.

          Slackline passes mixed in with other work
          - Rebounder throws
          - 3 lengths on the monkey bars - super excited to be back on my bars!
          - hanging knee raises
          - inverted rows, 4x8 on the gymnastic rings
          - assisted dips on the rings (totally dismal!)
          - not sure what to call holding myself steady/upright on the rings - feet dangling, rings tight at my sides until trembling becomes too much (right now about 6 seconds!) several of these
          - pistol squats holding the rings
          - pull-ups - little kip, small foot on vertical pole assist -12 spread across other activities

          Right hand/wrist is grumpy now, need to get it wrapped up and supported. Going to be a longish recovery, but at least it has started.

          • Sitting around being mega pissed that I can't do any upper body stuff with a stupid broken wrist.

            Tip for all: don't brake stuff, it's not fun.

            • Jump rope day; 4 x 60:60, 4 x 30:30, 8 x 20:10. I'm able to hit more double-unders in the 60:60 rounds, and I'm pushing harder in the tabata section.

              Pulse at completion of tabata: 156
              Pulse at + 2 min: 114
              Pulse at +5 min: 93
              Pulse at +10 min: 90

              Average resting pulse over last two weeks: 49

                I can totally relate - bite/massive infection/emergency surgery at the end of May and my right hand is still very messed up. I've only just started doing some upper body work again, I'm feeling like I lost so much and I'm learning to work without my thumb around the bar because my thumb can't be around the bars anymore.

                You are entitled to be grumpy!

                  • Trampoline!

                    After weeks of waiting we finally got our replacement mat for the trampoline. I have missed jumping sooooo much.

                    Super fun workout this morning, lots of flips and tricks, only 1 minor crash

                      • Olympic log lifts for me. I do them with a tricep bar. Full upper body. I may follow with my ab wheel if I have any gas left. I do compound exercises and combine OLAD (One lift a day) with German Volume training. Lots of reps and sets. M_W_F is upper body and T_TH lower body. I save my Saturdays for trapbar Deadlifts!!!!

                        • Did our 9151 trail this morning, 4.6 miles/490 elevation gain. This is one of our rockier and rougher trail runs (or hike depending upon the day). I really need to spend some quality time with the roller, maybe tomorrow.

                          Annual road race up the ski resort road on Sunday, 7 miles, 2200 feet of elevation gain.

                                Sounds great M2M! I really enjoy Flagstaff; pass through several times a year.

                                Lately I've been doing heavy back on light squat day, which was today.

                                Squat:

                                8 sets of 12.

                                Back:

                                Loaded Pull Ups

                                BW Pull Ups

                                Triples at the top in the following:

                                Bent Barbell Rows

                                Long Bar Rows

                                No DB work today.

                                When I arrived home from the gym a short while ago, my copy of Josh Bryant's highly touted new book had arrived in the mail: Built To The Hilt. Perfect timing as the next 2 days are rest days.
