My workouts have been pretty sporadic these past couple days. That is why I have not been posting. Here is my short workout I did today. Very simple but my shoulders were shaking at the end.
All done with 26 pounder kettlebells
Suitcase Deadlift 12 x 3
KB Push Ups 10 x 3 (barely made it to 10)
Snatches 10 on each side x 3 (feeling the forearms swell)
Rest and repeated 3 times. Pretty tired after that but I managed to get through this next sequence. Baby started crying towards the end so I did not get a chance to do more.
Squat and Press 5 on each side x 3
Swings 20 x 3
Now I can empathize with my clients about how the forearms get a bit tender. I guess I am just not use to having the kettlebell rest on my arm like that. I remember I built up a little tolerance several years ago. So I guess I have to do that again. Even though I felt my form was better than average. I do feel stronger. I can now use the 12kg with most of the exercises which feels good!
My weight has been bouncing between 116-118 depending on if I just breastfed or how much water I have in my body.
