Rite of Passage - Medium

This morning was my medium workout. Yesterday's squats left me feeling a little drained, so I slept in an extra hour and rushed through the workout, then slammed a protein shake for breakfast.  Total workout time was 35 minutes:

20k One Arm Press Ladders: 4 x (1/1, 2/2, 3/3)
Chin Ladders: 4 x (1/1, 2/2)
5 Minutes 20k Swings: 5/5 at 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 minutes

Again, having the timer is great.  It lets me focus on doing the swings instead of watching the clock.  I am very happy with it.  The presses went just fine.  With the posture adjustments I made and rotation of the kettlebell as I press, my shoulder no longer clicks or hurts.  Bodyweight hit 178 this morning, so the chins were pretty easy.

Work is still interfering with my ability to recover stress free.  Progress is being made, however.  A plan exists and I am executing it aggressively.
