My bet is that 2012 will have some things in store for us that are a good bit beyond the same old - same old. Some good and some pretty bad. The fact that I don't know for sure what those things are means I can only work to control what I have power over, prepare for the worst, and keep pushing forward with faith. Seems like a good attitude to me.
Many, many thanks to Mr. Wade who was kind enough to visit my blog...it means a lot to me.
This year's last Convict Conditioning workout today saw me passing the progression standard for Uneven Pullups Step 7 with two sets of 9. Very excited to start in on the real one-arm stuff next year. I finished off with a set of ten 45-degree one-arm ring pulls.
I went back to uneven squats (my current work step) and did two sets of three. My calves are absolutely killing me because I must have worked them too hard a couple days ago. It's ridiculous, limping like a 100 year old man. Will make a mental note about that.
Finished off with some actual Convict Conditioning II neck exercises: feeling out some wrestlers bridges and preliminary front bridges. The wrestlers bridges were much easier than the front bridges, but all of it would be almost impossible if not for the wall work I've been doing for the past six months.
Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year.
