Heat Resistance

Summer started for me today.  With temperatures in the upper 70's and a west facing garage, today's 6pm workout was hot.  It's just a shadow of what is coming, but I was sweating buckets.  Good day for a lot of volume and lighter weights.  I did the following:

12k Kettlebell Warm Up
One arm swings: 5/5x16k, 20k
Snatches: 5/5x16k, 20k, 20k, 20k, 20k
Experiment with Spike Bending Positions between sets of Snatches
Overhead Barbell Press: 5x45, 65, 85, 85, 85
Renegade Rows: 5/5x35, 35, 35, 35
V-bar: 5x1x90 (between sets of rows)
Grippers: 1/1x#1; Easy #2 Righty, Miss Easy #2 by 1/4" Lefty
Bottoms Up Presses: 5/5x16k, 16k, 16k, 16k
Blob Work: 27.5, Negatives on 35lber, Negatives on 40lber
Finisher: 1/1xWalk with 20k Kettlebell Overhead
8lb Medicine Ball: 2x5 Underhand Throws and Catches + 3/3 One Arm Press Throws and Catches

I think that's it.  A ton of work, no heavy weights.  Workouts like this have a way of making everything else seem insignificant.  By the end I simply felt tired and content.  I finished the workout standing in the hot garage listening to Jimi Hendrix and eating lemon ice.  Garage gyms rule.
