This is Working

I woke up this morning at 5:30, well rested.  Last night I got home about 6:15, stretched, and was in bed by 9:30.  Feeling pretty good this morning, I did the following:

12k Kettlebell Warm Up
KB Snatches: 5/5x16k, 20k, 24k, 24k, 24k; 8/8x20k
Overhead Press: 5x45, 65, 85, 95; 3x3x95
V-bar (between sets): 1/1x90, 100, 110; 5x1/1x125
Renegade Rows: 5/5x16k, 20k, 20k; 8/8x20k
Turkish Get Ups: 3x1/1x16k; 1/1x12k Bottoms Up

Snatches were feeling strong, added a set with the 24k.  Did more work on overhead presses with the heavier weight, focused on squeezing it up.  V-bar was feeling weak at first, then I realized I'd been wrapping my palm under my finger tips to pull the skin tight.  I went back to doing it, it helps. 

By renegade rows I felt like quitting.  I did the TGU's because I know I need to.  I also saw a video of someone doing a bottoms up TGU with the 16k, and I wasn't that impressed.  I thought I'd try it with the 12k.  I am now much more impressed.

That's it.  Back to doing the big things exceptionally well (breakfast!).  I am liking this approach.
