interesting theory. why do you say that? it hasn't messed with me in the past, that i'm aware of. but it did feel different from normal on wednesday.

motivation back. slight pain in lower right back, bit weird, meant i was cautious with bridge and floor kips, which i still suck at. skipped front and back rolls because they are boring and i am good enough at them. looked ahead to the next phase, which starts with week 10 (i.e. next week), and was feeling eh about it yesterday but am back to being okay with it today. not sure how interested i am in the flows, which are like katas. gonna keep with it for a while and see.

hah, was just a hunch, not based on much.

just reminds me of toying with something like high box depth drops out of nowhere and you just feel haywire for a few days.

superior anterior shoulder has been tweaking since monday. not sure what's up. never had a problem like that from ultimate before so i doubt it's that.

apart from times when i was sick or temporarily very sad about something, i can't remember a time when i've been less motivated to work out. it's weird. gonna take a break from strict adherence to GMB F1 and just work on hand stands, pirouettes (which i have come to see the value of, oddly enough), lever, and crow/crane. and some conditioning and stretching. i think i need to mix things up for a bit.

- tennis x 75 mins
super fun, played with a couple guys i know here who are roughly my skill level. one noticeably better but he's more out of shape than the other two of us. it is very humid. shoulder was fine, no discomfort, although we didn't serve, just rallied. serving would have been more stressful.

the internet is being slow and weird as hell here. adarq.org is loading fine, although images and videos are slow. youtube works fine. instagram doesn't work at all, twitter barely, NYT a bit, ny book review barely, google image search works but slowly. i think it's down for the whole city, though.

gonna try to get on a flight to the north tomorrow morning and i'll be up there for a few days. will go for some hikes.

ya man, sometimes one needs to just get back to freestyle. also if there's something you really enjoy more than anything, load up on that. for me (bw exercises), that would be ng pullups & bar dips, pmghr also but I just can't keep hitting that otherwise I can wreck my hamstring tendons. That's one movement i'd love to be able to handle better, feels so good.

Yo, you posted recently about getting great results with dedicated wrist mobility work. Mine is terrible and it makes front squats (even more) uncomfortable, and will also be am impediment when I eventually try out planche stuff again. Any recommended movements/stretches/routines?

I have always been able to get at least 2 fingers to entire wrist under bar for FS. What really helps is that I almost never do bicep curls, so I don't have that bulging bicep that gets in the way, other than that i'd say just really stretch your fingers/hands/wrist by pushing it towards the direction of your shoulders so your inner forearm gets a good stretch and ur wrist.

the mountains were rad. didn't go for any proper hikes but we walked a bunch, including one day at 15,000+ feet, which is exhausting and slightly disorienting. made it all the way to the khunjerab pass, which is where the karakoram highway crosses into china.

still stuck up here today because there were no seats on the flight this morning. did a brief workout anyway:

- warm up

- wall handstands x ~10s x 9
got good holds off the wall on most of these.

- front lever 5s x 5

- stretch

body feels good. family (and world) having a rough couple of weeks, though, so heart is a bit heavier than usual.
