Scaling Option A:
3 rounds for time of:
50 Jump and touch (14-12")
40 Squats
30 Sit-ups
20 Push ups

The jumping was crazy. My target was 13.5" above my highest point from my hand. My neck was killing me, not the jumping... I got vertigo fast. It made it difficult to do continuous jumps. 

The squats were not that great as well. My hips seemed really tight, I should have done the hip prep. Crazy enough, the ab-mat sit ups right after the squats felt great. Round 2 did my 30 situps straight without stopping. 

I scaled the push ups to just 10 reps a round. Still not wanting to stress out my shoulder with high reps. But the shoulder feels great. No more clicking, either. Just playing cautious. 

Since taking a break on my shoulder, doing the pull ups were difficult, like I had lost a lot of strength in my upper body. I used the 1" white band.

I could not imagine doing 5 rounds of this. Yuck. Took Hopper 26 mins. Amazing. And he did it prescribed!! 18"--- They don't call him "Hopper" for no reason. 

My 2 days of DMB was phenomenal. There is nothing more electrifying than live music. It floods my frontal lobe with immense waves of serotonin, and I feel nothing but elation and invincibility while swimming in the chords of the music... Saturday night, I really let go, just gave way to abandon. I never felt more alive. I was laughing and crying all at once. It was supreme. 

Sometimes I look around and question if the person next to me is experiencing a similar nirvana as I in the midst of the music. I mean, there are so many people who stay in their seats, and barely move their heads to the rhythm. They can't be feeling what I'm feeling, right? All emotion and feeling being bottled up... The emotion is so immense in me that it's like a champagne bottle all shook up, pressure just building, wanting to be released. 

I guess we all express ourselves in a different manner. I'm sure that person feels as deeply as I allow myself to express...
