Notes: Wasn't feeling great when I got up this morning. Didn't know if I was going to train but after I ate and showered I was feeling better. It's a tough gaming guessing whether or not this workout will cause you to tip over, or this might be the workout that will make the difference and you break through. The gambler in mean seems to win more times than not, but I have been getting better and knowing when to back off. I defaulted to my HHH standard (happy,hungry, horny when waking up).
Made sure to get a good shoulder warm-up in before hitting the push presses. I wasn't expecting much going into them, but the weight just kept going up. Got a little overzealous on the second 4 and bit off more than I could chew. Came back with a nice PR double after though.
Moved onto the HSPU. Kip felt good today, but it seems my triceps and shoulders weren't cooperating. The volume recently has left them really fatigued. I was happy that I was able to keep churning away at them though. Moved to the strict after 3:50 for the 25 kipping (12" depth). The strict sucked. It isolated the hardest part of the movement and there was no getting around it. Chipped away with singles and doubles, try to stay true to form. By the end my brain was melting and I finished the last 25 with sets of 3s and 5s. Happy that it was over.
Moved onto the conditioning work. Goal here was to keep a steady pace on the row and quickly transition to the toes to bar without wasting too much time. All T2B unbroken without much of an issue. Row times held steady after the first set, hit a 1:52 pace. Arms were tired after, but I was feeling pretty good.
