That's really close!

I've got a new one :
10 moves using only the bottom row on the bm2k and the 20mm lattice rung (which is the other side of the doorway)

Found doing moves on the fb so much less boring and more motivating than hangs.

Iíve started doing little foot on problems on the beastmaker. Much more fun than I was expecting (relatively speaking).

Before constructing the board.. I was using a 15kg assist of therabands(5) hanging from the BM to a footloop - this allowed you to bounce between moves a bit. Which was quite fun - and made it alot more pleasant to warm up in particular...

Huh, I really struggle to motivate myself for that kind of stuff and find it much easier to be motivated for a basic fingerboard session

I have always found the motivation for max hang sessions easy to come by, as they are pretty short, any suffering is brief, and I trust the process to yield results.  I haven't been able to use my woodie during this lockdown, so I've started supplementing max hangs with repeaters sessions on my Beastermaker using their app.  Crikey, the motivation to start those sessions is hard to muster!  I find them so gruelling I always want to give up midway through the first set (back two: nooooo!!!!).  Weirdly though, after a certain point the suffering becomes oddly compelling, and I always make it though my three set routine.  I think I must have masochistic tendencies (either that or I'm addicted to the very slight progress I am making)

I find repeaters the easier to be psyched for because you get to dig in hard and fight..

I am trying repeaters on the BM rather than max hangs and enjoying them as the session is a lot longer.
Trying to complete the 6C session on the BM app which feels hard.

The biggest issue I have is with my skin on the two finger stuff. That takes some motivation.

I have found I recover from these quicker than max hangs though. Session feels harder but fingers fine the next day.

4th session trying The Lockdown Project. Getting closer.

Are you kidding, four sessions and you nearly did it?
My last board project took me four years...

Sorry to disappoint Nibs, clearly too easy. The Lockdown Project went down last night.



Time to make a new (harder) one.

Good effort, well done. Clearly not hard enough though  :boxing:

- 20s +25kg half crimp hang on the small edges (+16kg feels fairly maximal atm, never done any more than 10s hangs before)
- 10s +40kg hang on a 19mm edge (just the larger slot with a peg stuffed in the back - would equal my PB from last Autumn)
- 10s +25kg middle finger mono pick up (+15kg feels okay atm, easing into it slowly)]
- 10s one arm hang the big middle slot (my arms are piss weak)

- 10s one arm lock off on the pull up bar (see above)

Ticked off these this morning. Especially pleased with the mono pick ups; coming along nicely.

Managed 15s on the top one the other day so not far off. Was third day on as well so reckon would be okay if fresh. Half a tick.

How's everyone else doing? All going out of the window with lockdown easing?

My lockdown project went on Friday. 12 moves on Bleaustone crimps. No video, but about 15 attempts, usually dropping last move if I manage to get through the grim 6th one. Next is to do it using crappy screw-ons for feet. I have 2 days.
