Variety Day

The cards were stacked against a workout today.  Thursday night I was up until almost midnight due to a code push at work.  It's part of the job, and I just have to deal with it.  Friday I slept in, and then made time for a brief workout in the evening.  It went like this:

Turkish Get Ups: 1/1 x 12k, 16k, 20k, 24k (PR), 45lb Barbell; Fail x 60lb dumbbell
Assisted Pistol Practice

I am happy to have got the TGU with the 24k kettlebell.  I was surprised how much hard using a barbell was.  It really wants to spin around on me.  There was no hope with the dumbbell, I didn't even get into a seated position.

The pistol practice was encouraging.  I still cannot do one, but I am able to briefly balance in the bottom position now.  As soon as I start to push up I fall over though.  My ankles and knees need to get stronger; it would also help to have the circumference of my waist and thighs a bit smaller.

Body weight hit 182 in the morning.
