Playing around with some movements to keep my trunk strong while resting the knees. Carrying the yoke while cradling it in your arms seems to do the trick. Holy buckets.
Might be a bit late but thinking of some of the #PRGNXgoals that were posted in the past month. Different for me this year.
I was blessed to do something 7 times that most people dream of doing once. Now it's turning the chapter. Being a more selfless husband and dad, working out for fitness and health, not just elite competition. And finally getting out and doing the things I love to more often like skiing, mtn biking, etc. Using my fitness outside of the gym.
Thanks for the great pic from the #ECC @jbburtoni2
Buzz on over to @getworkt for a chance to pick up a pair of free knee sleeves and a hat.
Long day, but a great one with my teammates. Always great to work out with such good people and awesome athletes.
Finishing up the workout demo for the individual final at the #ECC. Thanks to everyone for helping me get through it.
See you tomorrow for the team comp!

Push Pull event at the 2014 Games. This was a tough event for me. Not the outcome I wanted but we all bump into those at a comp. Important thing is to hit the reset button and keep moving forward.
Not sure who took the photo otherwise I would have tagged.
Some good questions and thoughts yesterday on the bar muscle up. It's not that one is better than the other. Depending on your strengths and weaknesses one may be easier than the other.
In the ring muscle up you don't have to pull as high since you can come through the rings. It does require more shoulder mobility as well as the awareness and strength to control the rings in the transition and dip portions of the movement.
Learn some of the details and take part in some cool lectures at the TeamSpeal Experience next month. You can find the registration link and more info at the link in my bio.
Depending on your pulling power bar muscle ups may be easier than rings.
Advantages: you can kip harder and have more stability in the pull and dip portions.
Disadvantages: You have to pull higher in order to get your torso over the bar and elbows high for the transition.
Do em both.
Taking a little extra time between sets to get in some takedown work with #spealbot.
Well worth the break.
Looking forward to helping out at the 321Go Seminar next month at @crossfitprkcty
One of the many great things coming to the box in the next couple months.
Eeeked that one out. Working your weaknesses improves your strengths. Why, I don't know. I also don't care but this @crossfit stuff really works.
Working an L1 at @richfroning gym CrossFit Mayhem. Had to help him out with his pandora station.

Sledding with #spealbit and #spealbot yesterday. The Oak man has a bum knee like his dad but we found out he sure loves sledding. @foxyroxy129
#TBT Common respect between competitors. @richfroning and I meeting up after the clean and jerk/rope climb WOD in 2011.
Cleans from the blocks today before a little team WOD with @karatekidding

Weight starts from the floor, use the same bar and swap out your weights.
Followed it up with some #crossoversymmetry afterwards.
Finished up another #crossfitcompetitorscourse with some great people. @ericcrossfit @matt1chan and I will be outside of Dallas at CrossFit DFW in Southlake, TX next month for another seminar.
Hope to see you there!
This was my lunch the other day. Yes there is bread, no it's not paleo, yes it was delicious, and it's actually very close to zone proportions.
I tend to feel better on a bit more carbs so I try to add them in at one meal. This was thanks to the best wife ever @foxyroxy129
@roguefitness barbells standing up to the test of the affiliate day after day. I've had them for 7 years and not one has bent.
I love snow, and we could use a whole lot more of it. But a 40 degree bluebird day with #spealbit skiing up at mid mountain for the first time was awesome.
