I’ve been prescribed a series of ‘corrective’ exercises (i.e external and internal shoulder rotations, etc.) So I did those. Plus, front squats, body weight pullups and single leg squats to bench. Furthermore, I have ‘accessory’ exercises (i.e overhead carries and active hang, etc.) and then, assorted ab work.

Moist, humid.  Saw a baby snapping turtle, honeysuckle in full bloom – absolutely delightful.  Sort of bonked near the end.  Need to eat more than two handfuls of Goldfish.

*Supposed to be faster but shoe laces and trail conditions were prohibitive to the effort. Very muddy and slick.

May 14th 2018

  • Activity: Climbing & Hangboard

Pretty busy in the gym.  The new routes were ungraded and it made me miss Climb Tacoma so much.  Climbed in front of strangers and thankfully, no one beta blasted me while climbing – has this community changed?

Hangboard at home. 10 seconds on-3 minutes off-open handed x6

Note: Did Movement Assessment. Conclusion?  Hip imbalance
