New Dumbbells

Sunday I traded off some old sports equipment and got a set of standard spin lock dumbbells. I did not like failing on the 60lb turkish get up Saturday, but it showed me the dumbbell get ups are harder to stabilize.

Tonight I proved it.

Warm Up
Two Arm Swings - 12 x 12k
One Arm Swings - 12/12 x 12k
KB Snatches - 8/8 x 12k
Split Squats - 8/8 x BW

Work
Turkish Get Ups - 3/3 x 10k, 40lbs, 40lbs
DO Axle Deadlifts - 5 x 136lbs, 156lbs, 156lbs

I finally brought my axle in from the garage. I am not sure where my lifting is going right now, but I do know my interest in heavy deadlifts is limited. The axle is a suitable alternative.

I have culled a number of tangential distractions from my lifestyle.
