Complete as many rounds in twenty minutes as you can of:

2 Muscle-ups (I was seated on the floor with 1" band)

4 Handstand Push-ups (I did the tri-pod on the 20" box)

8 2-Pood Kettlebell swings (I did 1 pood)

Hard to see: 8 rounds + 1 seated Muscle up. 

Nate was really taxing. The 20 minutes felt like it went by very quickly. While I enjoyed the struggle of doing the seated MU, it was very tiring-- this part of the triplet is what zapped me. The HSPU on the box was difficult just cause my arms were just killed from the MU. The KB swings I did straight through... Quite proud that I pulled off 1 Pood. Not going back to 3/4 Pood :) [Stop the presses! I just read in 2 blog entries I wrote in September that I have used 1 pood before--- damn, when did I go back to 3/4 pood? What's wrong with me?]

Overall, I was able to work on my MU transition; I've learned how explosive you have to be during the transition, really popping my head threw, throwing my body forward while pulling up. Then once in that bottom ring dip position, it was now the job of my arms to get me to that full support at the top of the rings, with full extension. And that is where I struggle, the arm strength to do the ring dip. My primary goal on the whiteboard goal list is "Bandless ring dip." So that is what my focus is on... I'm going to give it the same exact attention I gave to my goal of getting DUs. 

It feels like Thursday but it's only Tuesday. *sigh* I guess I just can't wait for it to be the weekend.
