Thanksgiving Week Catch-Up

Last week was rather busy with the holiday and all, so I fell a bit behind on my posting, though not on my training. Here’s what my workouts looked like for Thanksgiving week.

MONDAY

I hadn’t used my weight vest for a while, so I put the kettlebells aside for the day and headed to the park with my vest and Jungle Gym. I put enough weight in the vest to bring it up to about 20-lbs., or about 12 percent of my body weight (yes, I am rather slender).

Warmed-up swinging the Kali sticks. Next up, 10 sets of 3 weighted chin-ups followed by 10 sets of 3 weighted dips on the Jungle Gym. I rested about a minute in between each set.

I ended with some weighted sprints. I sprinted for 15-sec with 45-sec of rest a total of 10 times.

TUESDAY

Back to some 5×5 kettlebell work today. After warming-up swinging the Kali sticks, I did 5 sets of 5 each of Jungle Gym chin-ups and Double KB Clean & Jerks. Next, 3 sets of 8 each of Jungle Gym dips, body rows, and 1-Arm KB Military Presses.

I finished with a mix of KB Swings and sprints. I paced out 50m, and put a kettlebell on each end. I’d start on one end, do 10 KB Swings, sprint to the other end, do 9 KB Swings, etc. until I got down to 1 KB Swing.

WEDNESDAY

Single kettlebell work with the 44-lb kettlebell today. After warming-up swinging the Kali sticks, I did 5 sets each of Jungle Gym chin-ups and Single KB Clean & Jerks. Next, 3 sets of 8 each of Jungle Gym dips, body rows, and Military Presses with the TNT Cable.

To finish, I did a sprint/swing circuit:

  • 5 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 10 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 15 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 20 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 25 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 20 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 15 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 10 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
  • 5 KB Swings, 20-m sprint
