because some of you asked…
was good! it was 20 minutes of gymnastics skill work so I worked on getting my butterfly kipping pullups which are not the easiest to learn. It just feels so backwards from my regular kip and honestly I dont really see the need for them for myself. I never will be competing at a level that the xtra speed would benefit me so I worked for a bit and tried a ring handstand push up which was a fail. i think i can get it but its a tough move.
and I think anytime you have 1 coach with 10 people all working different skills nobody really even benefits. I dont want to take time from the person getting their first pull up to learn something I probably wont ever use…My opinion is it should be limited to 1 or 2 skill choices instead of all of them. that way at least you get a few people working on the same thing.
it felt good to do pullups because its such a good core stretch. I was a little worried about that because I can still feel some of the surgery scars in some places when i hang but they didnt hurt.
WOD was 4x 400m run + 50 air squats
a good WOD for my first day back I thought. run was fine but the squats were not. in order to get below parallel and open up at the top (full range) I was doing way more work then I should have because I couldn’t keep my mid-line straight. my core has been way to protected and not stretched in way too long. 2 surgeries on your core in 5 months will do that to you I guess…
going to yoga tomorrow and stretching it out. I’ve decided my plan for coming back is for every 2 xfit classes I take I have to do 1 yoga class. I am also planning on hitting xfit 3x a week for the next few weeks so my DOMS aren’t as bad. before all of this went down I was pretty regularly 4x a week RX-ing WODs and while I’d be a little sore it wasn’t terrible. I want to get back into that shape again, but need to remember that it happens slowly. I’m giving it 6 weeks. that’s slow enough for me :)
