Week of 1/23/23: Workouts this week, short home workout, Tu/Wed/Th/Sat sessions.

Hi Folks,

Another promising week of cool clear weather ahead so you can ramp up the training as you prepare for any running, triathlon or cycling events. Weather should be fine for Saturday HR/XT workout, so that is a go.

DAILY SWINGS ADJUSTMENT: Regarding adjusting Kettlebell Swings & GetUps weekly schedule. The December Swing Challenge is over, but we will modify sets and reps for those who are training for a running, cycling or triathlon event in the Spring. If you find the daily 100 reps of Swings and 2-5 GetUps; re-adjust it to 150 – 300 reps per week. Example, MWSat and work up from 150 – 180 – 225 – 255 – 300 eventually.
