# balancing, head bounce, 3 rings, 4 rings, 5 rings, 6 rings, 7 rings, 8 rings, 3 clubs, 4 clubs, 5 clubs, 6 clubs, 170 minutes

Thought I'd log this week's juggling to get an idea of how much I'm practicing. Got to the studio late again due to roadworks even though I set off earlier.

Warmup: improved dropping the head bounce into a stall and almost got a full 360 with a club balance

Spent a bit too long on 3 and 4 rings at the start, almost an hour. Bxx and spins not great today, balance was good though. Got 4r into 3r + balance and 4r + balance into 5r first time. Need to stay isolated with 4r + balance if I'm going to get into it from 5r. Good run of 5r pancakes, ~15 throws, dropped trying to get back to cascade. 6r felt very good- keeping my right elbow in helped with the angle. Good run isolated, async to sync and back, pulloff to clean flash of 6, 4 up 360 to collect. 7 felt good, ended with 22 catches clean. Nothing with 8 really. Launch of 5 from my left far from good enough for 9.

Had ~45min at the end so blasted through club practice. Almost landed a few 720s but moved on. Alberts and treblas shit- no point spending 2 min on each, need at least 5-10 I reckon. Good runs of 3c doubles and flats with balance. Almost got 4 bxx back to pattern again. Nothing exciting with 4c. 5c singles extremely poor, but couple of ok runs of triples (over 30). Bxx looked better again today. Felt better about 6c too, but had to leave before trying 75.

# balancing, head bounce, 3 balls, 4 balls, 5 balls, 6 balls, 7 balls, 8 balls, 9 balls, 10 balls, bounce passing, 120 minutes

Went through almost all of the ball practice stuff. Generally, spins, ass catch, kicks and bxx bad, balance, overheads and shower good.

Find it hard to see the balls in the Romford hall for spins, but got a really smooth 3b whirlwind. Still can't do bxx with balance. Neck a bit stiff for the head bounce.

Throws terrible for 4b 360s and 720s need to work on those tomorrow. Got 2 rounds 552 bxx easily on first attempt, should try more. 4 up overhead async felt very doable. 5b bxx improved but still not good- need more flexibility in left shoulder. 5b overheads were awesome- got in from cascade first time, ran it while chatting with Tom then transitioned out. Then 40+ clean, then couple of attempts at 3 up 360 into overheads. 35 catches 5b shower first time, then b171. Balance pretty good, several runs ~50 then tried (6x,4)* which is impossible (can catch 6xs but not 4s).

Good runs of 6b sync and async, qualified clean with club balance easily. 70+ catches isolated. Several good feeling ~50 runs with 7b, then (8x,6)*. Good looking 8b async. Tried 9b with gballz only, not bad but only a few rethrows. 10b async starting RH- maybe 4 or 5 attempts improving each time.

Bounce passing with Dave K. 10bb 2 count started badly but improved pattern massively after 5 min. Need to use the bounce room more often for solo stuff.

Total practice time: 290 minutes

Locations: University Sports Centre, Romford juggling club
