Fly Away

The issue at work has been resolved.  After a few days of rest, my body weight came it at 206 this morning.  My 32k kettlebell actually weighs 69lbs, so I decided today would be a test day.  After some foam rolling, fitball work, and a good warm up, I went for the following:

1/3 BW Kettlebell Snatch: Video
Chin: Video
60 Second Front Bridge: Video

4 out of 5 isn't bad.  Some lifts were closer to my limits than others.  Needless to say, I will be doing quite a bit of work on taming the arc of my kettlebell.  I also plan to leave my 32k kettlebell below my head for at least several weeks.  Plenty of improvement to be had with the lighter kettlebells.  I followed the kettlebell stuff with a bit of bending, nothing worth writing about.

The best part of this test day was a huge thunderstorm moved in while I was lifting.  You can hear the thunder during the bridge video.  I had the garage door open and it made for a really cool workout.  I'll stretch later tonight, and maybe have a celebratory drink or two.
