OMG!!! I can now do kipping pull-ups!!

Today was a banner day. Great workout this morning with AMRAP deadlift at 1.5X bodyweight and 7 kipping pullups. Although my bodyweight is 130, my max DL is only 160, so Coach Ortiz had me do my Deadlifts at 135. And as of this morning, I still couldn't do kipping pullups, so I did attempts. I completed 7 rounds. What an awesome workout!

But tonight at O-lift was spectacular!!!

Not only did I PR, completing 5/5/13 of 100lbs in the backsquat, I also PR'ed completing 5/5/5 at 75lbs for push press.

Then I went outside to do my prescribed 3/5 negative pullups, which I did. I told Liz I was close to being able to do a kipping pullup, and she asked me to show her, so I figured I'd give it another try. Lucky me, Coach LeClair was there too. He coached me to really "kip" and use my hips to get myself up there....and I did it! Then I did it again! Then again!

I CAN'T BELIEVE I CAN FINALLY DO THIS AFTER 6 MONTHS OF TRYING!!!

Very cool. Now I'm much closer to being able to do all the workouts to standard.

...Now I've got to work on my pushups!

Bad Ass CrossFitter! I watching your stats and you're getting really strong. I gotta see that kip. I had the same conversation with Eric this morning, and the hip thrust definitely got me over for a single kip, but when I come back down, I'm clueless what to do next... and then I get tired. lol!

Lead The Way Shannon!
