Liking these? They leave me feeling very solid.
Indeed - good finisher for barbell/grind days. I keep adding stuff to the burpee part - a squat, a punch & kick sequence. I figure if I add a few more I get to rename it - kung-fu burpee or something. And doing the unweighted pull-ups after the weighted ones feel awesome.

Problem is, total session time keeps creeping up - last night was about 90 minutes, which isn't OK. So many gainz, so little time...

Tonight felt just awesome. Had power to spare for snatches. TGUs felt solid. A little fatigue on push-ups due to yesterday's burpee session, but still good. Even the hangboard felt like a PR.

Now... before heading down for the great training session tonight, I had spent an hour having cocktails with the neighbors. Coincidence? 🤔

Sunday was a planned day off. Monday was a not-so-planned day off - took my daughter to a tryout for a different team, and watched her just rock it. Totally worth missing training (and getting bit by a swarm of ants).

Just had a heck of a time keeping my HR down today. Now, I'm in week 2 of some mild calorie restrictions, trying to drop a little blubber... and I feel like I'm really noticing it already in terms of HR and recovery (in a bad way). I feel like I'm fighting against my body's natural set point on weight, and it is resisting... at least, that's what I'm telling myself as I reach for the doughnut.

Are you carb restricting mainly? Nice snatching!

Had a mini-tryout with my new baseball team on Friday, sucked out all my energy for training. Then, even more softball over the weekend, so training continued to be sparse. I did get in a poolside workout on Saturday, alternating between lap swimming and light calisthenics.

That was the end of the softball season... time to get back on the horse.

No time for NS burpees tonight, but not a bad day's work.

EDIT: 3.9m this morning, not 4.9m... I ain't that fast

Part of my squat mobility routine is some TRX-assisted pistol squats. While playing around with them today, I realized that lowering on the trajectory I think I would need to do for an unassisted pistol bothers my quad right at the point where it inserts into the knee. If I sit back a little further, doesn't bother me. So, now wondering if that's the weak point that is keeping me from being able to do a pistol... or, if I actually need to rethink what the proper trajectory actually is.

Missed morning training on Tuesday due to poor sleep. I mentioned the grumpy right elbow a couple days ago - went to the batting cages Tuesday afternoon, and that really aggravated it. Going to give it a few days rest.
