WOD: KB swings, OHS, and push-ups
50 kettlebell swings 16kg
50 overhead squats 48#
50 kettlebell swings
My time: 19:28. I substituted the push-ups for ring dips. I wanted to do 53# for the OHS, but only got one before I realized it wasn't happening. The OHS went very badly. Just couldn't get it together, probably wasted 5 minutes trying to get the first few and kept losing my balance just after I got the bar up over my head and dropping it in front of me. Then the push-ups were total crap, not even close to full range of motion. I guess you have good days and bad days in the gym. Yesterday was a good day and today was a bad day. Oh well.
Edited to add: I forgot, I did get a little closer to one of my goals. I put a 25# bumper plate on the 20" box and jumped on that. Tomorrow I'll try the 35# plate.
Here's a funny article - I'm getting to be a total Facebook nerd and I did the 25 things meme, so I'm not poking fun at anyone who did. Just thought there were some gems in here. #15 made me weep with laughter.
