Oof. It's been a while since I've been this sore. I had 2 hours of sparring practice and 20 minutes of handstand practice yesterday. Today, I decide to give the bag a beatdown as a warmup since I didn't have my sneakers with me to warm up with the rope. In case you ever wondered, punching the bag for a solid minute as fast and hard as you can is really tiring. I can just barely make 50 seconds on that drill right now.

Stupidly, I decided to do a rings workout today. I'm happy that my muscle ups are getting better. With a few technique refinements and some more strength gains, I should be banging out 5x5 in no time. I don't know what possessed me to do extra Bulgarian dips and false grip pull ups though. I was already tired from yesterday's training. Now everything is just sore.
