I haven's been logging much of my training, mostly because it has been fairly sporadic. I regularly do pushuos, pullups and pistols. Sometimes one set to completye failure, sometimes multiple sets way below max rep. Curiously, my daughter's boyfriend commented on the size of my arms a few days ago. Go figure: when I was 20 big guns were the goal of goals, and I could never make them grow. Now I don't really care, and get the arm size as a side-effect. Lesson, if you want one: pushups and pullups are good.

I haven't logged last two sessions. During those I did front levers (can do it now with one leg extended for a few seconds), weighted chinups with 24 kg (several singles), hit a new latest chinups PR - 15 reps. Plus pushups and pistols at moderate volume. I am also trying to re-learn my handstand, it is ugly at this stage.

Today I couldn't resist the itch and did some jerks with two 16s at 6 reps/minute. I could only last 6 minutes: the pain in the forearms from the pressure of the bells is overwhelming! Otherwise I could easily go for full ten minutes. I guess I have to re-learn that too.

To finish off.
