teaching, 1 minute

Spent a lot of time teaching at the practice today, there were a few potential new members. That's good!

Helped H with some advice on how to juggle 4 balls, and suitable practice tricks. Also taught him passing 5c 1-count, didn't get many passes though.

Helped J with the basics for 3b cascade.

L also wanted help with 4 balls, she didn't know the fountain pattern so I showed her the sync and asynchronous versions and 441. E showed her 4440.

B learned 2b exchange and did at least a 3b flash, maybe 4 or 5 catches too. Also tried passing a few clubs with me (3 club exercise for 5c 1-count).

A already knew 3b cascade, but I could give a few hints on how to get it more relaxed.

...I believe they were all there for the Stockholm Flow beginner hoop workshop, but I am happy that they wanted to do some juggling, too.

5 clubs, 10 minutes

Flash. Failing. Couldn't catch 3 clubs in my left hand today... Often dropped the ones I was holding when trying. Probably something wrong with the throws. Gave up...

...decided to try 6 catches, so I could catch 3 in my right hand instead. Got it on the first attempt! Hey, that's a new PR! Then dropped lots of times before I finally got it one more time.

Should probably start doing some of the 3c and 4c exercises again.

5 balls, 10 minutes

Flash. Got it 10 times in 14 attempts. :)

6 catches, until I had got it 10 times.

Pittsburgh, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 100 minutes

Lots of good stuff lately. I'm up to about 8 minutes of clips for a juggling video. Just need to add some kind of fancy transitions and music...I'm worried it will get taken down if I use any kind of popular music though. I've got some of my own music, but it might not fit super well.

Here's a reverse cascade -> 97531 -> reverse cascade: https://youtu.be/pZ6PEX9_6kk

The cascade after is a bit sloppy and I only barely qualified it. I'll try to get a better one but this felt good already. Difficult trick!

7 balls is feeling better and so is 6, but I feel I may plateau again... Motivation is most important. New beanbags might help (smaller ones) so I think I will get a set soon...

I tied my 6 ball sync fountain PB with 54 catches clean. Can do more and will try soon. Edit: Oh my old PB was 52, so I beat my PB by 2 catches after a 10 year break - yay! First numbers PB since like 2009 lol. Here it is: https://youtu.be/_lz-inF90nM

3 clubs, 14 minutes

Mostly my normal indoor stuff.

Tried a few of the crazy things W showed us last Thursday... Not that I paid that much attention, so I'm not sure I actually did the same thing. Didn't do the tricks while juggling, either... Just trying with the 1 or 2 club(s) involved in the trick.

4 balls, 4 minutes

Fountain

3[4,3]2 and switching between this and fountain. Definitely easier to save bad throws in this with balls than with clubs.

5 balls, 13 minutes

Flash, until I had got it 10 times.

6 catches, until I had got it 10 times.

10 catches... Tried for 7 minutes, didn't get it. Got 8 catches (to collect) once, got 6 catches several times.

Did a few attempts to at least finish with 8 catches, but then settled for 7. Better than finishing with a drop.

3-5 Clubs, 5-7 balls, 65 minutes

Really good training session. Pr in 756 and [88][44]. Also ran 7b for 100 catches and 5 clubs for 100 catches on the first try.

machine, 1 minute

Trying to get the machine to juggle 5 balls. I replaced the 2'x2' board with a 2'x4' board. This is like having a higher ceiling. There are issues with the hand armatures. I can't get them adjusted properly so that the throws go directly into the other hand. There are lots of possible solutions, but I am not sure what the best route is.

3 clubs, 4 clubs, 100 minutes

Warm up

Not having a very good juggling day today, dropped doing things that are usually easy.

4 clubs:
Fountain, doubles
534 four times and back to fountain didn't work
3[4,3]2 was kind of Ok, but couldn't switch to fountain.

3 clubs:
45123

Siteswap 5 as doubles:
52512 worked. Added the shoulder drop thing I did last week, and got further today. Seems possible to run this.
531 with the 5 as a double was quick, didn't get many rounds.

5 clubs, 10 minutes

Flash. Caught all clubs 4 times, but never only with my hands.

passing, 70 minutes

(With S)
5-count popcorn. Sometimes with triple single. I am getting a bit better at that, I think a lot of 534-practice has helped my triples. S also did other variations, including throwing doubles to me.
Gute Nacht
Gute Nacht vs 7c Why Not
75756 I need more zap practice...
972
972 vs 978 (S doing the side with the extra club) wasn't that much worse than just 972.
Copenhagen Countdown

...on my way home from Stockholm while writing this. I want more club passing now! Two hours a week really isn't enough.

machine, 1 minute

Upgrades to juggling machine:

  • Replaced batteries with computer power supply. This is convienent because the computer power supply can output 5v for the Arduino, and 12v for the stepper motor drivers.
  • Replaced the LM298N stepper motor drivers with bigger TB6600 ones. This is not necessary, but those terminals are much nicer.
  • Mounted the electronics and a switch that enables/disables (on/off) the computer power supply.


I also switched from the white glass balls to smaller metal balls. The metal balls roll much better.

New PR: 9: 16.
