Here's a glimpse of what my workout area looks like. See that black mat on the floor? That's my area. I perform all my current movements right on that mat. One doesn't need a lot of space to get an awesome workout with kettlebells! There's an elliptical machine there on the right which has been collecting dust for about a year now. Who needs boring cardio when you can swing kettlebells??!!
On the workout bench you can see some of my daily tools. Polar heart rate monitor, Gymboss timer, small notebook to log in all my sessions with kb size, sets and reps, Super Joints to get me moving on rusty days and a copy of Brett Jones' article on how to prepare for the RKC Cert. On the floor a few small dumbbells that I'm currently using to strengthen my forearms/elbows along with my 'hammer' - the one side weighted dumbbell also used for the forearms. And of course my cement blocks that I'm using for pushups and L sits these days. You can also just barely make out the ab wheel (yellow) jutting out from behind the front of the elliptical. I need to start using that regularly again. So many toys, so little time!
Anyway, here's today's session, a makeup since I missed yesterday.
Getups: 20kg - 5/5 (this might have been 6/6 as I lost count somewhere along the way)
1-Legged Deadlift: 32kg - 3/3
1-Legged Row: 16kg - 5/5
Tactical Lunge: 16kg - 5/5
I felt like a little experimentation with these, just for fun.
1-Hand Swings: 32kg - 5/5, 8/8, 5/5 for 4 more sets (6 sets in total)
These 1-handed swings felt really good today! My grip felt strong up until the very last set (which is why I stopped when I did). I focused on solid form the whole way through. Brought the bell up to chest level. I was very surprised at how good these felt. So that's all for today. More on Monday. Have a great weekend.
