Been feeling pretty tired after a 15 hour journey back to Lancaster and one full rest day but there was enough in the tank to do some training and I was really motivated to get on with it…
Lots of movement to warm up fingers, wrists, arms, shoulders, back, waist and hips first of all.
Then 8 overhanging boulder problems from V2 to V4 before completing a steep V6 (I think it was V5 really!) with dynamic moves between slopers and one small crimp in 6 attempts.
Then on to specific exercises:
2 x max off-set pull ups on each side with a brief lock off at the end (felt hard)
2 x 4 breath mono pocket hangs on each finger with foothold assistance
2 x max handstand push ups (only going about half way down)
2 x 8 breath back bends
2 x max dips
2 x max hanging leg raises (ankles to bar)
2 x max hanging windscreen wipers
Finished with a good stretch of forearms, shoulders, chest and back.
Felt good to train but wished I’d waited until after dark and enjoyed the sunshine outdoors. Note to self!
