A fair bit of front lever pratice, still in the adv. tuck holds but it's getting better and I can hold with better form for longer.
Also managed to get a full dragon flag, despite it being the first time attempting them since some time late last year. And last year it was bent leg too, so really pleased with that. Got someone to record me although couldn't get the video off his phone. Form was fine though, could perhaps go a little lower at the bottom and be a little more straight at the top, but it's hard to tell as you will never be exactly straight at the top as you're not resting on your head. Better then Rocky did in the IV montage anyhow, although I lose points for not doing it in a cool barn in Russia.
Did them in sets of 3, I'll get some more practice in and get a video up at some point if I can for criticisms. I'm starting the first rep from the top position, I'd like to learn how to start from the bottom but I don't know how hard that will be because it's a lot easier to get the right tension at the top to begin with.
Pleased with it anyhow, seeing how last time I tried I struggled to get one bent leg rep out. I think it's the rollouts and improved grip that's helped. Hill Sprints x10
These are better, getting less rest between reps. Real hard stuff, they don't feel like sprints as I get so tired I don't go that fast even running hard.
Further notes: Regarding OHP tomorrow I'm going to switch from DB OHP to BBB OHP, as I think more time with a barbell will be better for me. Also getting some pains in the right wrist from the front squats yesterday, hopefully it will sort itself out soon.
