Crikey I’m well chuffed with this – Been working for months bit by bit to try and take on this #pegboard which is an obstacle on #ninjawarrior and has always defeated me. Slowly though I’ve built up the strength thanks to @stevecolemanfitness and all the #calisthenics that we’ve been targeting. I had a crack this morning and, apart from tying myself up in the #TRX i def have it a good go. Need to tidy up my technique but it’s so so satisfying 😃😃 Doesn’t matter what your goal is, or what you want to achieve, tell you what, getting there makes that battle well worth it! #nailedit #training #strength #ninja #pegs #hardwork
