This was my first time doing X2 Base + Back. During the warm-up, I heard Tony say “It’s Plyo and Pull-ups, what’s better?” I knew I was in trouble lol good lord. Two of the things I’m the worst at. I JUST finally got my chin-up bar last week; today is the first time I incorporated it. What has two thumbs, two aching shoulder sockets and can’t do one real pull-up? THIS GIRL! … yet, yet yet yet! I WILL do one full pull up from a dead hang. It is my new goal, and I WILL reach it! Today was not that day lol all of my pull-ups were chair assisted, and they were still tough.
This was a HELLOVA routine, from start to finish. My entire body is shaking like jello, head to toe… crazy intense.
Today’s Biggest Improvement:
Superman Banana X - I was able to flip from Superman (on your stomach) to Banana (on your back) three whole times without any toe or hand assistance! This probably seems like a small accomplishment but it is not as easy as you might think. Back to tummy, not hard, tummy to back…. quite a bit harder.
Today’s “Not so spectacular” Move :
Chair Jumps - This is really a very simple move, and individually they are not hard to do. The quick repetitions is what makes it tough for me. I’m only able to do 10 in a row with perfect form before having to stop and breathe (ok pant heavily & shake my quads, semantics). I’m able to do more, just need a break in between. My goal next week will be to do 13 without a break.
