First off, I’m writing this nearly two weeks after the fact. I occasionally have to write back entries since I use this blog tot rack workouts, but I usually don’t make a thing about it so that it reads better. I’m making an exception because my February 5th work negatively impacted the following two weeks.
Same sort of stuff I’d done the previous Saturday, really: handstand work, muscle-up progressions. I actually did about half a dozen handstands, which was great… but then I unlocked my elbows to see what a HSPU might feel like.
What it felt like was re-injuring my left trap muscle, which has been a problem since high school.
The ring dips and ring pull-ups I did as part of my muscle-up work just exacerbated things. Thanks to my one moment of trying something I damn well knew I wasn’t ready for, the next couple weeks sucked, work-out wise.
