Girovik (KB sport) lifts; long-cycle clean & jerk, push-press (2*24kg) and snatch (1*24), 3*5mins on each lift.
As far as interesting/beneficial/original exercise; Scott Sonnon's [URL="http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWjyeuwu8zQ"]'Kettlebell Spesnatz[/URL] (there are 4 levels. the video appears to be level 2). Lots of compound, complex movements, for time, under tension. And all the exercises have 'functional' cross-over. Gotta luv it!
• Run 1 lap (approx 2:30 mins)
• Do Burpees until you're at 3:00 mins.
5 sets of this.
Total of 15 mins
This was also a good one.
Today I did Tabata sprints with jumping lunges, side jumps, and squats.
Hoorah! the rain has abated (it seems like we've had six-weeks of incessant rain. English summer for you.) Anyway, the dry weather allows me to get out and about. Didn't go to far this morning. We have a dirt track (115 paces) at the side of our house, that leads to the river. Completed 6 laps -1 lap consisting of farmer's carry with 28kg kettlebell in each hand, sprint and walk/return to start. That was a blast!
Trap bar squat 4x10x40 kg (maybe I'll up the weight a little)
Some upper body weight lifting and then abs (for core training).
I've been cardio free for 8 month now and cellulitis is going away. No turning back I can get more endorphines from lifting heavy without all the damn stress.
