day 1913 – headway

feeling pleased with my back tuck and the progress i made this week. the motions seem smoother, the landing feels more comfortable and the flip as a whole feels stronger and tighter. it also helps i’ve been able to workout more like how i used to, getting some of my plyo movements closer to where they used to be. i feel like i just need that extra push to make the breakthrough i’ve longed. besides the back tuck, the webster and cartwheel also feels a lot better through the drills and extra reps

day 1909 – webbing drills

stayed well after class to practice because i want my websters. it was the perfect time to drill them because i was able to receive some valuable pointers. i was drilling and drilling them into the foam pit; long enough past dinner and in time for late night matsuyama with the gang. i keep wanting to hit the open gym times, but it’s always difficult on weekdays with my early morning starts

day 1888 – big leap

front tucks made vast improvements with my front tucks tonight. stayed after class for another two hours drilling them and getting them on footage. not only was it my first day landing them on red, i also moved to blue and landed them too. it was looking so good i was asked to take it to the floor, but i opted not to because i was nursing so many injuries. never have i thought that i would land a front tuck on the floor before a back tuck. i do regret not taking up that offer, but i’m aiming to land them this week

day 1298 – diy

each person had to design a board based on the value they’ve chosen. teamwork is mine and it is definitely one i can relate to based on all the things i do. what looked like a simple carving task didn’t turn out to be one. it takes a lot more to be a good carver but i’m content with how it turned out. two hours of drilling is hard on my hands and ears. it took a hot shower to regain some senses in my arm

day 901 – plyo power

i knew what i was in for the moment i stepped into the gym today. it was all about drilling and drilling plyos because that’s what i wanted so that’s exactly what i got. the buckets of sweat from today said it all. it’s a very fulfilling and satisfying session cause i felt like i gave it my all and made every rep count. there was no holding back nor conserving energy for next sets on this day. this should be my hardest working session yet where all breaks received were hard earned
