Tinkering day. It's all about the pump, baby.

Hip Abduction: 60x3x10 x right side

Wrist Curls: 45x10 65x10 95x2x10 115x8

Reverse Wrist Curls: 45x2x10

Rotator Cuff: 12x2x10 x each side

Handstand holds against the wall

Handstands felt good. I found the right distance from the wall, and got the right amount of backbend to keep my balance -- I was able to kick off the wall and hold a free handstand for a few seconds.

I probably won't be attending adult gymnastics classes for the near future -- I'm leading a middle school confirmation group at my church -- so I'll try to include a little handbalancing practice on these tinkering days. Realistically, I wasn't getting much direct coaching at the classes, so it's not a huge loss.

Other than the handstands, this workout broke every single P-Menu guideline for proper exercise. I might do some cable crossovers next week.
