24 kg speed swings 15 min,105 lb 1 1/2 press 10 x 3,walking lunges, laterals



The swings went well but man my shoulders are sore! Not in the joints but the muscles! Haven't felt this in years; like my old bodybuilding days. 160 pushup reps in 3 sets might do that. Especially after those 180 lbs presses!

Also changed to use the Reps GS style bell. the DD bells are so smooth now it's hard to get a solid grip.. I could chalk them up a lot but thought I'd give this a try. They are skinny gs handles  (probably the same as a dd12 kg) but has a toothy powder coat. Big too and they swing much more slowly( center of mass is further away) but this felt great. Nice rhythm and the grip was actually perfect in my hand.

A bit to get used to but I think this will be my wed bell for speed.

these felt so good. this exercise has really been transferring to my heavy press. I could really feel that today but man this is getting my shoulders, Especially the holds at the top! Which i am so grateful that I can now actually do!

Walking lunges

these are hard again. Can't figure out optimal stride and I'm tired and sore by now. Still ok

Thanks, it is great post , "I’ve had so many personal training clients come and see me over the years that can’t squat properly, it drives me mad! This is mostly due to their hip mobility or lack of it! If you sit all day, have hips that are stiff, suffer from mysterious hip aches or struggle to do a perfect squat, then you need to check out Rick Kaselj and his Unlock Your Hip Flexors program. for more click here https://bit.ly/2BULG89
