Thursday and Sunday

Swimming before leaving for Thanksgiving and then more swimming on Sunday. I’m doing better at swimming forwards. I can do a breaststroke for a full length now without drowning. I haven’t been brave enough to try a full lap yet. I still do mostly backstroke.


Holy freaking squat day! The warm up was 2 rounds of 10 wall balls, 20 situps, and 40 squats. That’s 100 squat moves in the warm up.

Then we did 50 kettle bell complexes which is a kettle bell swing which you catch at the top, squat, and then stand and press it overhead. I was doing 35 lbs.

After that we did 5 sets of 3 hang cleans – bar from knees to shoulders. I did 80 lbs.

The workout was as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:

  • 10 back squats – I started at 105 and then dropped to 85.
  • 20 pike pushups
  •  66 jump ropes

I did 6 full rounds and all but 6 of the jump ropes in the seventh.  That adds up to 220 squats this morning.  I have a lot of driving and sitting to do today so I fully expect to not to be to move soon.
