Looks like Saturday HR/XT/LOADED CARRIES are on for this weekend. LMK if you plan to attend. Weather should be cooler by Friday and Saturday, plus we have an early morning start. You’ll be done by 9 ‘ish prior to the heat settling in for the day. You can continue training through the hot weather; simply reduce the volume of your workouts.
QUICK KB PRACTICE. Carrying out a modest 50 swings with good form with 5 x 10 swings on the minute (OTM) with your stopwatch mode as a “partner”, or using the “I go, you go ” method with a partner builds some serious cardiovascular fitness and you use a bit of a challenging weight kettlebell. Superset Goblet Squats and push-ups for four rounds will be doable during the hot weather.
Alternative second set in addition to the 5 x 10 swings; follow-up with 2 x 3 reps of Get Ups on the right and left sides.
3) A set of 10 swings followed by 8 push-ups ( incline or flat on ground); 10 swings / 7 push-ups; 10 swings/ 6 push-ups and so forth.
