Thanks for the welcome George!

10/21/2008: No fast today. Will be fasting tomorrow for 15-16 hours.

Warmup
360 Pulls 4x2
BRS Practice - FAIL. I have no idea how to work up to this. I just can't seem to get HIGH enough...

Muscle Ups
3x3 MU Negatives
2x5 MU ROWS

Negatives were strongest ever. Very slow and strong and controlled. I FELT like a beast doing these...rather than feeling like I was at their mercy..for the first time pretty much ever.

The Rows seemed kind of...easy. But they did help with learning the sensations of a slow transition...I guess...

Snatch

45x3
90x2
111x1
---------
133xF - Tried a jump that was too big...
121x5x3

Felt a bit slow to warm up. As I went through, I got better, indicating that it was an issue of practice/technique. I jump FORWARD...so I am trying to fix that. Also, i am finding Greg's SCARECROW cue to be quite useful.

Dips

3xF-1 (Shoot for 15)

1 - 12
2 - 10
3 - 9

Getting there. Next time I am sure I can get a set of 15 in there.

WOD

21-15-9
1.5 Pood KB Swings
Pullups

6:28
- First really intense MetCon in a while. I now remember what it feels like to be suicidal yet like a superhero at the same time.
