5 – 9 – 12
Warm up: Joint mobility, followed by jumprope/hi knee tabata
Taking it easy on myself today! I love this style of conditioning session. Used only my 20 kg kettlebell today, and tried to use my very best form, AS ALWAYS! 😀
Every minute on the minute:
-10 2-Hand Kettlebell Swings
– 5 Push Ups
– 1 Squat Thrust
(active rest till end of minute)
Farmer’s Walk 25 ft., switch hands
Suitcase Deadlift, opposite side
Farmer’s Walk 25 more feet
Sprint to start, then back to kettlebell
6 Goblet Squats
Lastly, I did 10 burpees for the hell of it, and to make sure I still could! I think my Crossfit experimentation days are probably behind me, I much prefer doing simple strength and conditioning workouts with my kettlebells and walking.
I am currently rereading Pavel’s “The Naked Warrior”, and am going to attempt to get really good at pistol squats and maybe, just maybe, pull off a one-armed push up or two!
I really get a kick out of getting stronger and Pavel’s advice is always practical and easy to follow. I will write more about my new, improved strength practice soon.
After a paleo (I find myself actually desiring paleo-style meals more and more often, yay!) dinner my baby girl and I went for a nice little walk and stopped in at the gym where she acted silly and I did a descending ladder from 6 of dumbbell deadlifts using two 50-pound dumbbells.
Tomorrow I think I am ready to tackle an awesome Marianne Kane workout. I haven’t had the gusto for one of hers lately, but I think it’s time to dust off my little blue notebook and do some hard work, Irish style!
On Friday I am hoping to go to the park to do some sprints and pull up practice, using “The Naked Warrior” tension techniques.
