3. Energy

Dan John Challenge #4:
Five forward rolls
Five right shoulder rolls
Five left shoulder rolls
Three cartwheels followed by three cartwheels to the other side
One set of bear crawls (about ten meters) - I did 15
Sprint 15 meters

handstand practice stuff with Connor and just tumbling for fun

-Whole body day - A lot of improvisation but a good workout overall I think
-sandbag C+J - just getting a hold of the bag and ripping it off the ground is hard, I think I could do more weight for hte clean but for going overhead it's jsut right
-sandbag row- somewhat awkward, I felt like i'd either have a really wide stance otherwise I'd keep hitting my legs
-unilateral KB floor press - had a hard time keeping my scap tight on these, when you aren't tight you can feel your scap pushing against the floor, not comfortable
-Glute stuff - Phase 2 - Going from 30 to 53#'s was a big difference on the glute bridges
-DJ Challenge 4 - I didn't find this hard at all, I'll admit I felt a little dizzy afterward but not hard, Connor had a blast trying to follow along, afterwards we spent 15 minutes in the backyard just messing around with tumbling, handstands...etc

20 minute walk around the neighborhood with Connor and Laurie

5 minutes with the stick on my lower body
