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.
