    My right quadricep almost twisted into a knot, like it does when I'm strict about my pistol squat form.
    Didn't make it to thirty (15 by the clock though ), but this was my issue also....I quit when my upper left quad/hip flexer started cramping.

    Got to 30 seconds by stopwatch today! Already doubled it. Newbie gains are awesome.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Did l-sit pullups all day yesterday. No timing. Core and lats are very sore today so I'll retest the L-sit in chair tomorrow to post.

    Yeah, I won't be setting any records today, either. Spent three and a half hours chopping and hauling firewood yesterday. I think I worked out every muscle in my body, since I switch arms all the time, too. Always impressed at how quickly lefty learns things.

    Yikes! Well thats impressive...I have no desire to attempt a lefty ax swing. I'd rather end up unbalanced than in the emergency room

    Well, I didn't just go for it. I practiced with a stick, noting my feet and legs, posture and where all my fingers go during the swing. I was surprised at just how much detail goes into a mindless thing like swinging something. Once I mapped out what every bone in my body does on a righty swing, I inverted it and practiced a few swings with a stick until I felt confident. But all the unconscious stabilizer muscle activity, the shifts in balance, must be taken into account! It was several swings before I was assured of the stability of it all, and had the semi-conscious accident-prevention moves worked through. Like, if the ax misses and you naturally hunker down and scootch back to get control of the ax and save your feet, got to work it all out before it happens! Half a lifetime of using heavy tools teaches you to train both sides of the body, because when the right arm gets too sore and starts giving up - but the boss is watching - you have to keep going somehow!
