I’ve still got it! I was able to do another 8 muscle ups throughout the day today. My wrists and shoulders are a little sore so today’s muscle ups were kipped but still very smooth. I think I have them for good this time. Project Mayhem Kettlebell Snatches 24kg, 22L, 22R Clean & Jerk 3RM In 10 minutes you have 40 seconds to complete 3 reps. Just like at the regionals. I...

The Return of the Muscle Up
My relationship with Muscle Ups has been tenuous at best. I got my first one several years ago at a Cert in Boston. Just out of the blue, I went over to the rings and pulled myself up and over. It was shocking but I played it off and acted like it was no big deal. After that it took me a good long time before I was able to do another one. Then several months later I got on the rings and did 2...

Since Memorial Day I have been slacking on my nutrition. It hasn’t been terrible but hasn’t been great. It’s a lot of little things that add up and then snowball out of control. First the milk in the coffee, then the cheese on the burger, then the bun on the burger… then before you know it I’m eating fries and a fucking milkshake. Ugh. Not to mention that I have...

The Banker Turned Yogi Tells All →
A little over a year ago, my life was different. I scrambled out of the house every morning in the dark, threw on mascara in the backseat of a cab, and made my way to the mayhem of the trading floor. Now, I wake up, throw on some Lululemon, and head to a yoga mat.
