Week 1: Day 5: Friday, June 8th, 2012

Hit alot of work on upper body pushing today, and have to say this is what I have been looking for in programming for a long time. I really feel at least personally for myself, I need to directly hit certain muscle groups to see benefits in building strength in certain areas. Only time will tell if it will work, and pretty excited to see any progress or no progress made over the next couple of months.

Today was the first time, I felt pretty good on muscle ups, even though I am dealing with some hand issues, where my right hand is pretty bruised and inflammed, and so hanging onto the rings, was pretty problemsome to say the least. The muscle up workout was -1 meaning to go less than my best unbroken muscle ups in a row, but Honestly I have never tried a amrap of muscle ups before, so I picked a number that I knew I could handle, but also something that would be relatively difficult for myself.
