100 KB snatches
100 KB swings
100 KB clean and press
Dumbbell rows, 3 sets of 10
Squats with heavy Bulgarian bag on one shoulder and KB in opposite hand, 6 sets of 10
Wish I had used a stopwatch, I was even impressing myself with the pace I was keeping in the 100 rep KB stuff. Then intensity was high to say the least.
While I was working out the kids were playing in the back yard(with the mud pie kitchen that Santa brought). In between sets my oldest would ask question like why don't I like to wear shoes, and that would lead to talking about evolution and where people come from. I was very impressed that her 6a year old mind was grasping it better than many adults I know. But my favorite question was "Daddy, how do you make your arms so big?". That's my girl. Knows how to make daddy happy.

Haha...that's a much better answer than what I usually give when asked how I do something, "MAGIC!!!"
Dave, I swear to god I will punch you in the nuts. Post pictures! 100 kb swings, snatches, clean & presses?! Holy fuck. I do 75 kb swings every Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Friday, and divide them into two sets of 40/35 or three sets of 35/25/20. 100?!
Pictures or I'm gonna stop reading this fraudulent account of workout'ocity!
I'm half kidding.
Please noooooooo!!! I like my nuts as they are now...UN-punched. I've actually told my wife to get some pics of me working out, but our camera has taken a shit. Fucking Kodak! I don't trust her with my phone to do it. Technology and her just don't mix.
Quadruple Tabata snatches
Sandbag thrusters, 3 sets of 10
Suitcase squats with kettlebells, 4 sets of 10
Another later in the day work. Don't like them as well, but sometimes that is the downside of working nights I guess. It was a little cold out at first for shorts and a T-shirt, but the tabatas took care of that pretty quick. No school today so we are taking the kids to Monkey Joe's(giant indoor bounce houses and slides). I will need to "help" my youngest in there so I will have to go in too .

Turkish Get-ups with Bulgarian bag, 4 sets of 10 each side
So I've been wanting to do more Turkish get-ups, but after doing something like 200 snatches your shoulders are pretty smoked. Doing get ups with a kettlebell you have to keep the weight locked out overhead or risk crushing your skull, so they've been out with the fatigued shoulders. So what to do? I thought i need to do them with a log on my shoulder like Erwan LeCorre, but I don't have a log. I do have a Bulgarian bag that is sort of like a floppy log, so why not try with that. They are not exactly the same as you are not engaging all the stabilizer muscles like when holding up the kettlebell, but it is still pretty good and a good addition to the workouts in my opinion.
