Reflections, by Mother Plucker

My personal thoughts on another fantastic week at CPMFITness.

1. We thought it would be really cool to post a video on the Sunday evening (Monday) blog that runs through the upcoming week of workouts. I hate (I can’t stress the word hate enough) being in videos. I really, really do. Chris is making me do it anyway. Here is one of our first takes. It’s not one of the videos with me in it. I’m not prepared for that just yet.

2. No one should ever have to do 50 toe to bars after a 600 m farmer carry. Seriously! Mike had a great idea. Since we have 10 toes, you should technically only have to get your feet to the bar 5 times. I was watching tutorials on toes to bar and came across this video from Jason Khalipa. I thought the “butterfly” of the toe to bar was interesting. I actually saw quite a few people doing this last weekend at my training. Might have to try it. I’m sure it’s as easy as it looks.

3. I’ve been working really hard to get a muscle-up. I started using a band progression and I finally got my first bar muscle-up last Friday! I’ve got some work to do but I’m excited. If you are interested in giving it a try, I’d be happy to share my methods (although somewhat unconventional) with you 🙂

4. Death my 10 meters… ugh. I’m a decent runner but it takes time to get this bus moving. Death by 10 was intense!

5. Am I the only one who thinks the spotting method for a backsquat is a little awkward?? Maybe not this awkward…
