Shoots and Ladders

With a continuously running clock do one pull-up the first minute, two pull-ups the second minute, three pull-ups the third minute... continuing as long as you are able.

Use as many sets each minute as needed.

I did this Pull up Ladder about 6 months ago and beat myself by 2 rounds today. That's pretty fuckin' cool. Not much to say about it. My arms were cooked. I just got the 10th pull up in at :59 of the 9th minute and had to go into the next set of 11... I did those last four with a lot of effort. My attempt at the fifth was failure. I threw in the towel. 

For warm up we did 2 Squat Cleans on the minute for 10mins. I started at 50#s for the first minute, but slapped on another 10#s. I figured I did that WOD just last week of 1 squat clean/7 burpees and I used 60#s that day. I've got to work on my Front squat. I mean to take a rest day tomorrow, but maybe I'll come in and do 3RM front squat... Naw I'll take a rest day. I've worked out 4 days in a row. 

Afterwards, I moseyed on over to  Dogtown Crossfit  for Dusty's gymnastics class. I wouldn't say it was "fun" but it was a huge magnifying glass on my weaknesses. Gymnastics as a sport is my weakest link in my Crossfit journey. It took me well into 8-9 months for me to be comfortable being upside down, and at about the same time I had just acquired my first unassisted pull up. Slow, deliberate movements that exhibit control of my body are very difficult and a weakness for me. The warm up included my faves(if you cannot sense my sarcasm, then we don't really know each other in real life): forward rolls! Then more forward rolls later in the class, along with hand stands- yippee! 

I'll probably be back for more torture, cause my training needs it. 

My abs are killing right now. It feels like a bad bad tummy ache. Sleepy times.
