What I Can Do

Today started a new beginning for me. I have decided to focus on the things I can do for now and not worry about the things I can't do. If you knew me, you would know this is a monumental decision...

Today, I can do Turkish Getups. I've also decided I will do them extremely well. So,Here's what I did:

A-TGU w/ 16kgs
15 continuous minutes; ended up being 26 reps per side. I know, this is an exercise not a lift. I focused on my body. It was strong through out, the last rep was as strong and pretty as the first rep. 15 minutes, it was easy.

THEN (because i felt strong, and i'm a little crazy), I successfully attempted a double Turkish Getup w/ 2(16kgs)! Twice!

B-Double TGU w/ 2(16kgs)x 2!

C-Towel Swings w/ 24kgs
20, 20, 20, 20, 20 = 100 reps

Focused on body, strong and crisp. Elbows fine.

D-Swings w/ 16kgs
10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 10/10 = 140 reps

Could have done more, but decided to set her down... Elbows felt good. Will pay attention to how they feel the rest of the day and tomorrow when I wake.

I feel good. I was extremely pumped after the double TGU; Especially after doing 15 minutes of TGU's to start with.

So, new week, new day, new focus. I will be good at the things I can do.

Nice job Tim on the double Get ups!

15 minutes of TGU's is no small feat either!

Keep it up brother!

Franz, I know it's just a circus trick but it was a fun thing to try. The hard part was figuring out how I was going to sit up with them.

We all have to have some circus tricks in our back pocket. You never know when you're going to need to pull it out!
