    Water will mess with your head. 5-6 lb fluctuations happen. Use the belt test. That is the only thing that matters. I would just get on the scale once a week, same time (day and hour) every week. Best rolling right out of bed.

    9 min time cap

    Diane is 21-15-9 rep scheme of 225lb deadlift and handstand push ups. If you finish that you move on to 21-15-9 of 315lb deadlifts with 50ft handstand walks in between rounds.

    If I can get through Diane before time cap, 315lb deadlift is too heavy for me right now. I have deadlifted heavy in probably 8 months. Iím guessing my 1RM is probably less than 315 right now.
    Got through 8 HSPU in the round of 15. Had a hand full of no reps or would have gotten though at least that round. Thinking about trying it again on Monday and changing some of the pacing.

    Practicing my Dimak for the next Kumite

    The new HSPU standard...Geeze. So much more time under tension to get the rep. Much slower than anticipated. I got a few no reps but spent a lot of time reaching thru the shoulders and heels that it really ramped up the intensity of the HSPU which are usually just a formality.

    Got thru the 21 reps at 315 but barely had time to attempt the walk.
