Friday, 11/1/13 - Happy World Vegan Day!!!

warmed up with Indian club swings..

*chins x 2 reps GTG'd throughout the workout...
1. press: 45x10, 60x8; 80x3 / 3
2a. TRX push-up: 3x7
2b. TRX row: 3x8
3a. db curls: 3x8-12
3b. pushdown: 3x12-15
3c. laterals: 3x12
4. 2-arm kb swing: 24kg x 15
5. 1-arm kb swing: 20kg x 10/8/6/4/2
6. 2-arm kb swing: 24kg x 15

Done! First full-week back, feeling good. Light soreness but I've been recovering exceptionally well. BW is stable at 175 lbs. since the week of juice cleansing and I've eaten pretty big these past couple of days. That's a solid 8-10 lb. drop from my pre-cleanse weight. Maybe I was just full of crap like my wife says! Ha!!

Yeah my kettlebell weights are international so they are in kilos. If I list weights in kilos I try to put a "kg" after. Weights that are just numbers generally in lbs. Thanks man!!
