One of the key principles of working towards physical freedom is doing what you can with what you have. This doesn't just mean equipment, but time and ability too! Today I felt pretty beaten up! I lifted big and pushed myself in a workout that wasn't in my wheelhouse yesterday, and today I had a lot of physical labour to do. That said, I felt the need to do something. I had a 15-minute gap, unexpectedly, at around 5:30pm, so I used ten minutes to train!
10 Rounds Not For Time:
5 Strict Pull-Ups
5 Strict Ring Dips
Wear 20lb weight vest
Important update for Mountain Murph - Today we picked our charity partner Ur Back Up CIC who aim to connect veterans with suitable charities in their time of need, and aim to provide this as a free service! See the linked Instagram page at the bottom to find out more!
Yes, it was that simple. I didn't warm-up (there is a lot of nuance to whether or not I needed to, I don't believe I did) I didn't cool down (see previous parenthesis) and I didn't time myself. I threw my faithful weight vest on - see my link below to snag your own - and just started moving. It felt okay. Not as good as it once would have, but already better than my last couple of pull-up sessions. I'll continue to target progress here over the next few months. I opted for dips as opposed to a form of push-up as there would be less interference with the high volume of handstand push-ups I did last night.

A decent food day again. Not quite spot on, due to a late-night errand, but tight nonetheless. Breakfast at 7:45am kicked the day off which was bacon, 5 scrambled eggs and some blueberries.
At 1pm I had pork mince topped with cheese followed by an apple and a banana.
At 8pm I had 3 tubes of dried fruit and nut and some cheese and salami for a snack.
At 9:15pm I had 2 large pork shoulder steaks topped with cheddar followed by grapes, yoghurt and honey.
