# 1 ball head bounce, 1 club balance, 6 balls, 7 balls, 4 clubs, 50 minutes

Another 6/7 ball practice session and 4 club solidifying workout. Still struggling, but, seeing some improvement. Shoulders are still getting sore from the stress of these numbers only sessions. Holding out hope that I can qualify 7 balls, and get 100 catches of both 4 clubs and 6 balls before year end. Got a 13 catch record with 7 balls...had a 15 throw run, but, dropped catch 14. :-( Ohhh...sooo....close. Had a 50+ run of 4 club async doubles.

# 1 ball head bounce, 1 club balance, 6 balls, 7 balls, 4 clubs, 60 minutes

Once again focusing on trying to get 4 clubs and 6 balls semi solid and 7 ball qualify. Still only at 12 catches of 7. Getting some good 4 club sync runs and good 2 in one hand runs, which seems to be translating into some pretty good 4 club async runs. Still not close to the 100 threshold that I consider semi solid. 6 balls is still a collision fest after about 4-5 throws from either hand. Trying to focus on scooping and releasing near shoulder line versus at center line of body. Shoulders are not real happy with me right now...lots of wear-and-tear with this numbers work.

Head bounce and club balance stuff to provide rest from all the other exercises.

Will take a few days off toss juggling (to rest shoulders) and only do balance and head bounce for a few days.

# 1 ball head bounce, 6 balls, 7 balls, balance, 4 clubs, 55 minutes

Focused practice on 6 balls, 7 balls, and 4 clubs with a bit of head bounce and balance practice thrown in during rest periods.

Warren Hammond suggested some exercises and tips which I have been working on to improve 6 balls and 4 clubs. Sync drills, 2 in one hand, being more under the pattern and arms more at sides. I am seeing some small improvements, but, shoulders have been sore and hurting a bit from the changes in form.

First log entry in sometime, as I have been sporadic at practice, a bit unmotivated about juggling in general and unmotivated to actually log things. Rewatched some Tony and Wes videos recently and that got me a bit more motivated again.

# 1 ball head bounce, 1 club balance, 3 balls, 4 balls, 4 rings, 5 balls, 5 rings, 6 balls, 7 balls, 60 minutes

This practice session was an odd mix of working on various head bounce and club balance: put rings on and off head while maintaining bounce or balance. Trying to do something to increase the skill so I'll finally be able to juggle under the club balance and head bounce. I then did some 3 up 360 work...still not consistent with this trick. Then moved on to basic 4, 5, 6 stuff, and then 7 ball flashes (getting better!). Then I did some 4 ring practice and some 5 ring endurance.

First time practicing since I have been out of commission with a back injury. Did a bunch of 3up 360 practice (got 4 in a row one time). Head bounce practice, and short object balance work, fooled around with some 4 ball multiplex stuff, 5 ball half shower, 5 ball shower, 6 ball endurance, and 7 ball flash practice. Nice to be back!
