Monday's Training/Class

After taking the weekend off from training (although I kept busy with home improvements), I had an evening training session with some friends.  Half instructional for them and half training for me.  Here's what it looked like from my perspective...

Warmup with assorted Kettlebell Foundation Joint Mobility.

Swing:  12kg

Clean:  12kg - 4 minutes
(These felt great.  I got into a nice rhythm with my breath synch'd.  Felt like I was running at a good clip without losing my breath.)

Push Press:  12kg - 2 minutes

Long Cycle Push Press:  12kg - 4 minutes

Windmills:  12kg

Snatch:  12kg - 2 minutes

Swing:  12kg - 5/5/4/4/3/3/2/2/1/1
(Descending pyramid)

Swing:  12kg - 5/5 on the minute for 5 minutes
(These took about 30 seconds to complete, so it was close to 30 sec on/30 sec off for 5 minutes)

Cooldown with assorted Kettlebell Foundation Compensatory Movements.

I can't wait to see how my body feels tomorrow.  This workout was a bit more extreme than what I've been working through as of late.  But it felt, oh so good!   I am hopeful.  Good night!

Great to see you testing the waters with considerably heavier volume .. hopefully the after effects will be nothing you can't handle with a little recovery.

Thanks Franklin. As is my usual M.O., I am being very conservative with things. So far, no two consecutive days of training in a row. Still trying to figure out what's going on with my back/hip. Had a good session just now (will post following this message) and hopefully all will feel good tomorrow.
