Wow that hurt! I did my first Farmer's Walk today - with 20lb dumbbells. Holy shit, that was painful! I didn't drop it once - by the end, my hands and one elbow and the rest of my damn arms were all killing me.
So - this was my first taste of a real strongman/woman exercise. By "real", I mean an exercise that isn't also used in other sorts of competition (like the deadlift). Shut up - I'm trying to make this into a milestone! Yes, I know my logic is flawed...
Today's work out was wonderfully brutal, as usual. I'm kind of pissed that I lost some strength in my pull-ups, because every time since I've returned we've had a circuit with them, they've slowed me down significantly. Ah well - I guess it's a good thing that they keep popping up, only way for me to get stronger!
I'm getting better at Turkish Get Ups. My two really weak points strength-wise are my core and my shoulder stability, so I need to become best friends with the TGU's, since they work both! Overall I have pretty crappy endurance, but that gets worked every MWF, so I'm not too worried about that. My other issue is that I get mentally down on myself sometimes - thinking that I can't finish.
I guess I'm just a work in progress, however I'm VERY motivated to keep working on things!
Wow - this has been a really jumbled post. So I'll just end it with a picture of me fighting to keep my torso straight and elbows up doing a front squat:
