Tinkering with a KipUp

This morning after I had just completed my workout, I was feeling energized and thought, “I wonder if I can do a Kip Up. It has been YEARS since I’ve successfully done one.”

The song that was blaring at the time had me rockin’ and so I turned to my trainer said, “Do you think I can do this?” He smirked and said, “50/50“.  When I popped up from the floor, the look on his face was priceless. I was just as surprised and ecstatic at the same time. I wish I had filmed it for my own memories.

…. and so I tried it again. While the Kip Up I do in the below video is not as pure of a Kip as the first (and definitely not to the same music), I was still happy. I started doing KipUps when I was very young break dancin’. To know I’m still doing them at 46 years old, especially after not being able to do them for several years, is a definite boost.

The irony? I attempted it purely to TRY – knowing full well the result may not be the outcome I wanted. The point was to go for it. And thus today’s Tinker Project is doing a KipUp.

What will you try today? What will be your TinkerProject?
