Still resting the manky metatarsal (or mega-ar**hole, as my younger son described it with unwitting accuracy), so concentrating on some upper body work in the meanwhile.
Finally got round to hanging my gym rings today and had a go at quick set of muscleups to test them out.
Except... no, that didn't work at all. Maybe an L-sit to begin with... nope, that wasn't happening either. Fine just a set of simple dips then.... aaaaarrgghhhh! wreteched things will not stay still.
Was a humbling experience and a great reminder of how changing just one tiny thing can change an exercise completely. I can do fairly clean muscleups on the bar but not a single one on the rings. I can bang out dips on bars set after set, but could barely maintian upper position on the rings.
My elder son watched this with interest and then said "you're not really veyr strong at all, are you Daddy?"
Grrr. Still strong enough to clip impertinent youths around the ear.
This ring business is going to take some practice though. Am quite excited by the challenge.
