2005 Mustang GT. The year they changed the Mustang from a "normal" looking car with a big ass engine to this retro American Muscle car look. I love this car. I feel like I'm going fast even when I'm going slow and it fits me to a "T".
Short, thick and all about muscle,lol
I love the short front end; it reminds of a bulldog and was the theme for today's two hand swing workout with the 40 kg bell: The Bulldog.
Two Hand Swings
24 kg x 10
28 kg x8
32 kg x 6
40 kg x 5
This was heavier than it should have been and it took a few reps to get the balance down. then it was fine and it was exactly what I needed to spark even more anabolism and get my size and strength going in the right direction again. Heavy something and today, this definitely qualifed.
I SO LOVE that I can train two hand swings now. This is the most basic of basic swing patterns and it's one powerful move.
alternated with Assisted Pistols
3/3 x 2
these actually went well and I found a much better groove than last week. These seem to balance out the hamstring dominance of the swings very well. I usually never like to alternated exercises but I do in this case.
32 kg x10 x 5 sets
these went very well after the B dog, the weight felt light and flew up. good power and bell speed.
alternated with handstands
these felt surprisingly strong. most held for 8-10 seconds. Didn't do the pushups but still used the right leg bent to 90 degrees. this makes it much easier although I really don't know why.
Two Clubbell swings
15 lbs x 10 reps x 5 sets
these were another good balancer for the two hand swings and really tractioned my elbows well. Swing went to 20 degree above parallel.
I love my car :))
