walk Bar Hang - 1h x brief, but improving, finding good position more readily GU: 8 kg x 4 alternating singles, rf - improving break SW: Instead of a new set every 1:30, inspired by the Quick and the Dead, did a set, another on the minute, then rested until 2 more minutes.

Experimenting with warmups to try to help right shoulder be better in getups. Goblet Squat: 32 kg x 3 - no problem, just a warmup 1-arm Bar Hang - can hang left no problem, right is, though - body doesn't want to "get under" right arm. Using a low bar in a busy location so I can ease into the 1-arm hang by keeping some weight on my feet and by steadying myself with the other hand. Progress was made on these today - need to do a lot of setting my right shoulde before it works, also need to focus on gripping harder with right pinkie because it's the weakest of my finger and that, in turn, effects hand angle on the bar and that, in turn, effects what the hang does for the rest of my body, especially my shoulder. GU: 8 kg x 2 alternating singles, rf - excellent result today, right shoulder was moving through a larger ROM than two days ago and body was more aligned better underneath the weight at the standing position. break SW: 32 kg x 2h x 10, 10 24 kg x l x 10, r x 10 44 kg x 2h x 10 32 kg x 2h x 10 - total 60 swings

Tuesday and Wednesday, not much, just walk and yard work Today, Thursday Buteyko walk Walk. On the way home, a couple of short sprints up stairs. GU: finding the right kind of mat - size, thickness, removability - for getups. Decided on some interlocking flooring I had a few pieces of. 4 kg x 1 l/r 8 kg x 1 r/l - need to go right up (which means left down) first - it's the weakest for both arms SW: On the 1:30 today, all 10's - 100 reps 00:00 - 32 kg x 2h 01:30 - 32 kg x 2h 03:00 - 24 kg x l 04:30 - 24 kg x r 06:00 - 32 kg x 2h 07:30 - 32 kg x 2h 09:00 - 24 kg x l 10:30 - 24 kg x r 12:00 - 32 kg x 2h 13:30 - 32 kg x 2h A bit glycolytic but OK, will stick with this for a while, 2-3x/week, and try to make it easier as I adapt. Form pretty good throughout, probably swinging better than I ever have, likely just from watching so many people on the forum and the ensuing discussions.

DL: 125 x 3, narrow sumo, r/u 135 x 2, narrow sumo, l/u 145 x 1, conventional, l/u 155 x 1, conventional, l/u 165 x fail, fail, both conventional, l/u Form not good on 165. First try, spent too much time bent over at the bar, huffing and puffing, before I pulled. Second try, I could feel my sacrum move as I lost the lift, but interestingly, I believe what I felt was my sacrum moving from a less good to a better place - if I'm going to make these heavy lifts, I have to get my spine setup properly before the bar leaves the ground. In both cases, the bar left the ground and then stalled. When I position my spine properly, my hips are also further back and, overall, I'm just tighter.
