Climbing Back Up on that Horse

When a horse throws you, you have to climb right back up on him. That's what I did today with double kettlebell jerks. Only today, I used two 16 kg kettlebells (35 lbs. each). Word.

Double KB Jerks - 16 kg - 7 x 7
-After the first set, these went fabulous. I was a bit gun shy on the first set. (Wonder why!)

Double KB Cleans - two 20 kg bells (44 lbs. each) - 5 reps
30 secs rest
Goblet Squats - 24 kg bell (53 lbs.) - 5 reps
30 secs rest
5 Rounds
-The squats were a bit of a struggle today with the back spasms, but I did them with excellent form.
-The cleans are just plain heavy, but sooooo much fun. I LOVE throwing around that much weight (88 lbs).

Last week was a bear. So far, this week is starting off great. Let's keep that momentum going!

I can understand the "gun shyness". Great job getting back on the horse! BTW, that is a nice shiner. You are very photogenic! :)
