Training solo for awhile. Hard to get started for sure but a very different flow afterwards.the workouts are always shorter though!

26x8/8 lower to shoulder technique
36x8/8 not lovin it.
36x5/5 nah.

44x5/5,6/6,7/7,8/8,9/9,10/10 TWICE
total 180 reps

I think this is an all time volume pr.easier and harder than I thought it would be.forearms are cooked too,lol!techniques held up well. REALLY have to push the hips back as I start to descend from the top and be aggressive about getting the bell turned over quickly, and back into the arc.
was going to stop after the second round of eights but I figured, why not do them all?

rest periods were one minute for the sets up to eight and then 1.5 for the 9's and 2 minutes after the 10's.

weight tactical pullups

18#x3 chin over bar all

the last two sets had three attempts but they got only halfway. I am weaker in these since I stopped doing them every workout like I was in the force recon workout. interesting.

farmers walks
2/53'sx100 feet 4 times/30 sec/setss

I was cooked by now but I need to do these more too. this really strengthens my gait. felt better walking after these than before.

Interesting comment about the farmers walks helping your gait. I find that the Steve Cotter's "Full Kontact" movements help my gait. Lateral stepping, front and back, rotations, all the agility stuff with kb's. Lately I've been trying the Full Kontact movements with kegs overhead - WOW - very cool feeling!

the famres walk really solidify my walking positions. my knee is so forker that its easy for me to develop a really bad motor pattern and the weighted walks keep that from happening.
