Don't think, just swing.

Is what I kept telling myself during this one. Today was one arm swings with the 24kg and my previous pr was 500 swings done three weeks ago. I have been feeling strong lately and the number 600 popped into my mind. Didnt make a lot of sense but I thought it actually wouldnt be that hard.I would play it by ear, as usual.

One arm swings

24 kgx15/15x20 sets
600 swings pr
31,800 lbs!

I alternated sets with jonathan who was doing the same workout.This took 65 minutes and my pace picked up when he went out at 330 swings. My wind was good and swing speed and power stayed pretty consistent til 17 sets when it really took alot to keep bell speed up. I really wanted to just ride the momentum but I worked hard to keep power high.The hardest part was after 300 reps I thought " I have to do this whole thing again?" But then it was " don't think, just swing" and that worked fine.Just swing.

torch press one and two arms
10 and 15 #
4 sets of 6-8 of each

single arm cast to flag
10 and 15 lg bell
3 sets of 5 reps each arm with each weight.

I really love the decompression feeling I get from the CBs. especially the shoulders and elbows .plus, I have triceps again and that is way good.

I am toast.
pretty tight and will do a full z and rifga session later.

Dude, not only do have conditioning and strength, you've got gonads. 20 sets of anything takes fortitude, and building up reps 30 at a time is like volunteering to go to Hell.

If I did only 5 sets like that, I'd be bragging about it on my blog. Stay tuned.

I do love the challenge of doing things I am afraid of. can't do all the really intense stuff I used to but safe stuff like this almost gets me the same place.

There are a wide variety -chi flat iron clothing stores for men, women and children, yarn shop, jewelry shops, gift shops, pharmacies, opticians, chi flat ironslibrary, and yes, even a department store. The only thing that consumers do not

missing is chi Straighteners ironsthe number of shopping centers and ongoing struggle for parking. But be sure to bundle, because it is cold. And do not forget your apartment. There are parking meters, so be sure not to miss

Time and food wise.
