Speed Swings 18 minutes, walking lunges, horiz pushups, kb row
This was strong. Interesting because I was not feeling great all day. Nothing wrong but just not as 'sparky' as I would hope with 18 min of speed swings on the menu
Of course in my world a bad day is usually a decent omen of a good workout ( and vice versa) and I was hoping it would turn out that way
18 min was easier this week than 16 was last week and that's good.
I really focused on throwing the bell hard with my hips and locking out the knees and hips but not flexing as hard- just standing straight- and enjoying the float
Kept my head up the whole time too and this definitely shortened the stroke a lot. That head bob from my pushup video freaked me out so I tried it here too and it was great. at least for today..Also, took my stance out just a bit and transferred the load more to the hips. Felt good today, at least.
Was really in the zone today, too.Just got lost in the ritual. Put the bell down,click the counter, take breath, look for 7 seconds in, set up, count 9,10, 11 in my head and just bend down and grab and go. Didn't even look at the clock except at the end of the set to make sure i made my time
Had the fan on me too and that helped a lot. I can deal with heat but heat and dead air- no so much.
Hardly did any double breathing until the last 2 min or so. Much better today was perhaps the most efficient my swing groove has been
19,080 lbs work
4 laps of 40 steps unbroken!
these are getting better every week again too
64 total reps
kept the head up and did them more strictly. Shoulders and tris are definitely tired
28 kg x 6/6 x 4 sets
these felt strong too
Lots of hanging from chin bar today, three separate times. this is getting easier every day too and try to do it everyday is helping
ok ruck up tomorrow. gonna be a hot one again!
