Light Day

The temperature was a balmy 28 degrees this morning, great weather for a winter morning. I hit my light day in the garage feeling pretty good:

105 Seconds per Set

Goblet Squats - 5 x BW, 16k, 24k, 32k
Kettlebell Squats - 5 x 16k's, 16k's, 16k's, 16k's
Romanian Deadlifts - 5 x 95, 165, 165, 165
Windmills - 3/3 x 12k, 16k, 12k, 16k
Renegade Rows - 5/5 x 16k's, 16k's, 16k's, 16k's
Kettlebell Presses - 5 x 16k's, 16k's, 16k's, 16k's

A few items of note here:

1. My right hip has felt out of alignment lately. I suspect this is due to my lack of walking. I could feel it on my squats and opted to substitute windmills for turkish get ups as a result. I might be able to address the problem with stretching. Fast walking in warm weather would be best, but I won't be doing that until the spring.

2. I decided not to elevate my feet on the renegade rows. It makes the exercise too hard and causes me to avoid it. Better to do the easy variation than not at all.

3. Since I was feeling strong with the longer rest periods, I opted for doubles on the kettlebell presses. It gave me more rest time between sets and may have actually been easier. I will play around with this a little on Thursday with the 20k's.

Yesterday I ordered my bumper set. I went with the kilos version and want it to arrive now
