The past several weeks I have been surrounded by 2 friends with Bronchitis and a client getting over Bronchitis. I have been lucky to have a great immune system and normally don't get sick. If I am not sleeping very well, I am bound to lower my immune system, no matter how healthy I am eating. So with that being said, I picked up a nasty cough and have been fighting it for over a week. This bronchial cough has taken even more sleep away from me. It has been hard to find the energy for a good workout. It has also been disgustingly hot here in San Diego, and I don't have air conditioning! Today I made myself do a 30 minute workout. I kept the reps low but the weight high.
Warm Up Set 1
Pistols holding 8lb medicine ball 1/1
One arm Push-ups on 18 inch box 3/3
Turkish Get Up 16kg 2/2
Snatches 12kg 15/15

Pistols with 8lb medicine ball 3/3
1 arm Push-ups on 24 inch box 5/5
Turkish Get ups 16kg 2/2
Snatches 16kg 10/10
Swings 32kg 8 reps
Double Snatches 12kg's 5 reps

One of my goals is to be able to snatch the 20kg safely. I have not tried it yet. I just want to make sure I am feeling very comfortable with double snatches before trying the 20kg.
