Goals for 2005

By March, I want to be able to climb the rope all the way to the ceiling. That gives me two months. I don’t even know if that’s realistic but I need to take the initiative to practice and to learn the most effective technique.
Nancy, one of my favorite people at the gym, asked me tonight if I want to try for a muscle-up this year. I said of course! She wants more women to be able to do at least one of those. She gave me two pointers she recently learned: practice full-depth dips; and practice holding the dip position on low rings. The hardest part of the muscle-up is supposed to be the transition between the pull-up and the dip. Here’s a video of a guy doing about a zillion muscle-ups. Here’s a photo of a woman who can do three.
