It can be easy to forget that even the greats are full of awkwardness and clumsiness.
The man quoted above is known to have changed the face of American literature.
But despite Kurt Vonnegutâ€™s success, he didnâ€™t start that way. It was full of fumbles, false starts, and embarrassing mistakes. Yet where others stopped, he kept writing. Forcing himself to move forward. He kept taking one more step, even when the process did not seem rewarding.
Awkward and clumsy is not just OK. Itâ€™s part of the way.

Rx Plus (OPEN): As written
Rx (PERFORMANCE): 75/55, Pull-ups, C2B, 185/135, 35/20

All repetitions are taken from the rack. Today, we are looking to build steadily to a *heavy*, but not an all-time best pausing overhead squat.
*We are looking to go no higher than 85% of our 1RM OHS in our three sets of one.
