Thanks Anthony,
Honestly, I sorta blanked out around the 8th rep and went into the zone. The way I was feeling I think I could have around 20 but I'll never push the envelope that far. Life's too short.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks Susie,
I tell you, I was feeling when I was done with the LCCJ. I would love to eventually do that entire cylce twice. That would be brutal. Especially the chopping part after doing the LCCJ. It may not be the wisest move, but it would be fun. I've chopped in a pre-fatigued state before and I've done surprsingly well. Causes one to really dig deep and really think about what you're doing. Toes are dependant upon it.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks Allen,
I think it would be even more impressive to get my fat arse to do a muscle up. Such a humbling movement, but I've been toying with it a bit. I think if I mastered the kip a bit better, I might be to propel myself high enought to turn over and dip into it. Maybe when I'm thinner? If that ever happens. I so love food.

All the best,
Arden

Thanks Kris,
That's a great book. And, of course, I have a copy. The young fellow who wrote it actually competed at one of our events a few years back. Big strapping guy who has lots of athletic ability.

Did I ever mention that my father would likely disown me if I ever used a wood splitter? yeah. We also agreed that neither one of us could buy an ATV until we had some form of leg or hip surgery. He had his knee scoped to years ago and has since bought both he and my mother really nice 4 wheelers. Til I can't do it no more, I'm walking where I'm going.

All the best,
Arden

Did you ever get a chance to look at Greg's article detailing the big kids muscle up?

I have not seen that.

Where might one learn the ways of the force for fat guys?

Heh, it was basically an article on training the dead hang muscle up. Pretty detailed and well worth a look.

Thanks Emiily,
I enjoy moments of transcending. And nothing like crazy stuff to bring that about. I see a date with "Linda" and "Helen" in my not so immediate future.

All the best,
Arden
