2 hour bouldering session outdoors, half an hour of slight downhill longboarding (including intermittent uphill pushing, of course).

On the way home, a board wheel got stuck and sent me flying. Slightly pulled my left adductors and twisted something around my right knee. Hurts a bit, but can fully squat and weight bear. I'll see how it turns out.

Turns out I have a bone bruise in the posterior tibia.
Should hurt, but doesn't. Swelling is down, but I have to lay off any leg-intensive activities, especially including ballistics, hard landings, repetitive stress or high loads. Ie. 3 weeks of upper body work and stretching...

Worked a bunch of pull-ups on my buddies hangboard last night, using various slopers, finger-grips, etc.
Then did some seated 1-Arm KB presses (on the floor), as well as some ring dips and push-ups.
Also, some jefferson step-ups w/ the left leg.

Yesterday 30min of various pull-ups, w/ rings, bar, eagle loops, wooden block, rope, etc.

Used various grips and hang times, also some front lever pulls and leg raises. Threw in some singles w/ the #2 CoC gripper, to keep the finger skin conditioned

Quick session.

Clap Push-Ups, ladders till 50 reps total
Reverse Hypers BW x 1 bunch
some 4-corner balance drill work in full squat and standing (left leg only)

finished up with some slow knuckle push-ups

These calisthenic-focused session are a nice change of pace.

some light training this morning. Slowly working my legs into the routine again.
Hamstring strain on the left leg is almost gone, except during intense stretches. Right leg feels okay, but I'm taking it easy, because I know bone bruises can be a bitch.
Due to injury-related training-breal-OCD, I've incorporated some muscle control work and isometrics into my daily routine. I hate being a fanboy, but they really make me feel energized and all types of good.
I'll stick to the for a while and see how it goes. Right now it feels like they might have some benefit for aesthetics and generally feeling vitalized.

2KB C&J 24's x25 reps as quickly as possible
20k Club Mills, Swipes and Squats

Spent the rest of the day building my bouldering wall and installing it in the hallway. Unexpectedly heavy. I'll cover it in some paint tomorrow and then screw some holds on it on sunday and give it a try.

short, shitty handbalancing session.

Feeling light headed today. Haven't eaten much the past days due to stress and the heat. I'll load up on food tonight.
