day 2588 – pullup feat

i’ve been putting in the work for my pullups every single workout session. looking back, it’s been an incredible six week journey. during the past six weeks, i’ve added one pullup to my sets with every passing week. going from four to ten was no easy task; i wanted to give up every single week because it got hard. my coaches were very impressed with my progression but i can’t take most of the credit. i can’t express how much gratitude i have for my lifting partner, always keeping me accountable and pushing me to get them done even on my worst days. i hit what is considered one of my biggest feat, but now i will need to set new goals to reach. it’s a strong start to september

day 2487 – lights out

wrapped up a long training session that was just shy of four hours. it was a gratifying session where most things i practiced felt pretty good and i broke past some small barriers. started off with some basic front tuck drills and loading my cartwheel. eventually was allowed to take it blue mat and had better take offs and higher landings. my back tucks felt strong leaving the ground and landing higher. my back handspring is at a point where i can do two warm-ups and take it to floor. definitely felt more comfortable connecting my cartwheel back handspring and need not to cover up the edge. the one thing i wasn’t too happy with was my webster because it still feels so broken

day 1623 – fully discharged

i’ve waited long and hard, to hear surgeon’s very words, i will discharge you from my hand clinic, congratulations. that was further confirmed at my physio appointment who also said i’m cleared for sports with no restrictions barring any pain. on top of that, he who rarely compliments me did so for i maintained my alignment since he last adjusted me. the usual hardwork with the kinesiologist who not only worked me hard on the rehab exercises, but also gave me extras stuff i never even thought was possible out of me. he’s one of the biggest reason i’ve improved so much through the years and i’m gratified he’s given me all these challenges. the back to back appointments couldn’t have tasted any sweeter as i left both clinics beyond elated to hear that i came out triumphant. i will be able to sleep well tonight
