No Snow Day for Training

I may have had a snow day from work, but I did not have a snow day from training. I had to move today. I opted not to travel in the snow and decided to go to the high school in my town instead. The weight room is available for the public to use. The largest kettlebell they have is 24 kg - 53 lbs. That's okay. I still managed to set a couple PRs. :)

Push, pull, swing tested well AGAIN, so I put those into a circuit AGAIN.

Kneeling KB Press - 12 kg (26 lbs.)
Left - 34 reps, Right - 46 reps
2080 lbs.
-This was significant because I did more reps/set than I did on Friday. On Friday, I did 6 rounds of presses and pressed 34 left, 40 right. I did sets of 5 and 6 reps on the left and sets of 6 and 7 reps on the right. Today, I did 5 rounds of presses and pressed 34 left, 46 right. I did sets of 6 and 7 on the left and 9 and 10 on the right.
Intensity PR

1 Arm KB Row - 20 kg (44 lbs.)
Left - 40 reps, Right - 40 reps
3520 lbs.

1 Arm KB Swing - 24 kg (53 lbs.)
Left - 250 reps, Right - 250 reps
26,500 lbs.
-Even though I used a lighter weight than on Friday, I still moved more. I did 100 swings per set. I did 10 left, 10 right 5 times without setting the KB down. That felt great!
Volume PR

The five rounds took me 30 min. 30 secs. Total volume was 32,100 lbs.

I hope I have another "Snow Day" tomorrow!
