Love Letter - What You Need Is Consistency

For the last 35 days, I have been working on my Strict Ring Muscle Up.

In week one, I just did the CrossFit L1 Ring Muscle Up progression for 9 reps each day. In week two, I just worked on toe spotted shoulder turnover with no press for 9 reps each day. In week three, I just worked on bringing the rings to my sternum to work on the deep pull for 9 reps each day. In week four, I worked on my turnover by placing my feet on a box for 9 reps each day. In week five, I worked on floor Ring Muscles Ups while having my feet on a medicine ball for 9 reps each day. 

On day one of week 6, I did something I have never been able to do before. I did an L-Sit Strict Ring Muscle Up from the floor. BUT not only did I do one, I ended up doing NINE!

35 days ago I was not able to do one, and now I can do nine of them. This does not happen by luck. This happens by being consistent and putting in the work. 

Here is the crazy part, it just took me FIVE MINUTES each day!

That's it!

You want that push up? You want that pull up? You want that muscle up? You want those double unders? You want that handstand push up? You want to lose body fat? You want to get faster? You want to feel better? You want to get healthier?

Whatever your goals are, work on them consistently. 

Note that not once have I actually done a strict ring muscle up on the high rings in the 35 days and I won't for a while. I am sticking to my plan of building my mechanics first, being consistent and then I will add intensity.
