Today was AWESOME! I was feeling wrecked this morning from yesterdays squat cleans and hill sprints and wasn't planning on working out.. until I got to the gym and started playing with Snatch Balances.
It's been a solid year since I've done them, or much of anything for that matter, so I was dreading a reality check.. I was expecting to be WELL under my 165# PR.
They started out really wobbly and awkward because I'm so out of practice.. which made me even more nervous. I watched the videos of my first lifts and saw that I just wasn't getting under quick enough!
It wasn't a flawless workout, but it was a good way to break the ice again. I ended up getting 173# fairly easily and failing (on my ass) at 178#.
Then I did two back to back 10min AMRAPs with Matt, just because I hate them..
4 Narrow HSPU, 8 C2B Pull-Ups, 16 GHD Sit-Ups
4 Narrow HSPU, 8 C2B Pull-Ups, 16 24kb KB Swings
I'll post the video of my Snatch Balance workout.. the good the bad and the fails, as soon as I figure out how to use Imovie.
It feels GREAT to be training again. I feel as stoked as when I first started all over again :D

I need to get my muscle-ups back! I was expecting 7 or 8, but no such luck.. not with that apparent lack of dip strength. I'm going to start doing just a few a day. I've still never hit my goal of 10 in a row.. The most I've ever done is 7. But I think I could get it with a little practice.
BTW.. what on earth are those muscles sticking out at the bottom of my pull-ups??... Oh My Gosh.. I don't know how I feel about that! :/
