Week of Dec 2nd – 8th

Some interesting thoughts in there on the pursuit of happiness from a 13 year old. Reminds me of a paper I wrote for a college eduction class on constructivism after my ski coach gave me a book by John Dewey.  Letting my passions/ interests guide me has always been a big part of my education in and out of school… But also the notion that it’s OK to let things go and go explore new areas as well.

*We threw in some supplementals this week that are geared toward the DH Pull-up, Kip & Muscle-up. Here are the prerequisites for each movement.

  • Bodyweight DH Pull/ Chin-up = Nada
  • Kipping Pull-up = 5 BW DH Pull-ups
  • Muscle -up = Chest to Bar Kipping Pull-ups & BW Ring Dips

Until you have met the prerequisite you are not allowed to move on to the next movement…as that would be a waste of time. Some of the supplementals will be geared toward strength while others are geared toward skill. If you do self diagnosis of your limiting factor (strength, skill etc) you may put more emphasis in one area vs. another. Next week we may have a list of 3 supplementals for each of the 3 movements and folks pick based on what would be most beneficial to them.  Remember to rest too….Building strength requires rest.
