Thursday Double Press

Last week I had revisited the 18lb KB. I was timing some new combinations that ended up around 3 1/2 min. so I chose the lighter weight. Mark pointed out to me that because the weight was lighter it moves faster so it changes the type of workout you get. So much diversity with these bells, I love it!

Thursday is my press day and I normally would workout in the morning. But I had to go to PA that evening for a swing class so I decided to go early and do my WO at Girya. At Girya we have more KBs so I could play with using 2 18lb. KBs.

Here's Thurs. combinations:

4:30pm KB

Warm up w 1 hand swing, 10 L, 10 R, x 4 = 40 L, 40 R w/ 18lb 2min. on 1 min. off
3 sets = 9 min total

#1 35-38 double swings w/ 2 18's 1min. on, 1 min. off

#2 15 double clean press w 2 18's 1 min, on 1 min. off

#3 12 clean, press, trans L, 12 R, w/ 26lb. 2 min, on 1 min. off

Total time for these 3 sets = 7 min. (4min. work, 3 min. rest)

I alternated these 3 combinations 6 times. 6 x 7 min. = 42 min.

Repeat combo #2 x 3 sets total = 6 min.

Bottoms up swings 10 L, 10 R, 10 L, 10 R, 2 min. on 1 min. off
Total 5 min.

Total WO time 62 min.

I was thrilled with my weight Thurs. morning and it kept me motivated the rest of the day. I would love to go into the weekend and my Sat. cheat day weighing light. A little extra insurance!

I am finding, for me, having my sugar early in the day satisfies me and keeps my hunger and craving from seeming to get out of control. And I mean "seeming" because ultimately I know I can always chose to be under control.

Thursday was a great day.
