200kg: 1
Mixed Grip, Belted

Single Handed Swings
28kg: 5x10
EMOM

I did the deadlifts at the gym and the kettlebell stuff at home. 200kg moved fairly well. Heavy get-ups on carpet suck.


#212

Run
5km in 33min 8sec

Bodyweight: 96.2kg

This was my first 5km run in quite a while. I thought I was pushing the pace but ended up with my usual time.

#214

Week 28 - Summary

Bodyweight: 96.5kg (up a bit)

Training: 1x run, 5x gym - good

Nutrition: not so good

This week went pretty well. The highlight was probably the 200kg deadlift. I need to keep an eye on my bodyweight.

Row
1km in 3min 36sec

Single Handed Swings
32kg: 5x10
EMOM

Turkish Get-Ups
32kg: 5x1
EMOM

The swings were tough today, I think because I pushed hard with the rowing and took minimal rest between them. Finished with a bunch of mobility work.

Solid session today, I finally got a 48kg get-up which felt good. The bodyweight stuff doesn’t seem to have deteriorated despite neglecting it, so that’s a big relief.

225kg: 1
235kg: 1 - PR (518lbs)
High Handles, Belted

Good session. The get-ups felt pretty sloppy and my knees were a bit uncomfortable but the trap bar deadlifts were a pleasant surprise.


#220

Week 29 - Summary

Bodyweight: 97.0kg

Training: 5x S&S, TBDL and TGU PRs

Nutrition: Mediocre

A good week overall - especially the 48kg get-up and 235kg trapbar deadlift PRs. My bodyweight is heading in the wrong direction, I need to sort that.


#221

Week 30: Weekend
I did a lot of heavy garden work this weekend - mostly lifting rocks and cutting tree branches. I also did a light upper body session with a friend - bench press and pull-ups.

Single Handed Swings
32kg: 5x10
EMOM

Turkish Get-Ups
32kg: 5x1
EMOM

Bodyweight: 96.7kg

Nice brief session today. The focus was on keeping each rep crisp while suffering from brief rest periods. Knees and elbows felt a little off at the start but improved.


#223

Week 30: Simple and Sinister

Single Handed Swings
40kg: 5x5

Turkish Get-Ups
28kg: 5x1
EMOM

Run
3km in 19min 13sec

Bodyweight: 96.9kg

Pretty good session today. I think my 40kg kettlebell has a smoother handle than the one at the gym - I really struggle to grip it for more than a couple of reps. The run felt quite good, but I had some right knee discomfort.


#224

When you do these is it all one arm, alternating each rep, or each set, or what?


#225

For each set I do 10 reps with my right arm then switch and do 10 with my left arm.


#226

Ewww

Week 31: Simple and Sinister

Single Handed Swings
40kg: 5x10

Turkish Get-Ups
40kg: 5x1

Deadlifts
180kg: 1
200kg: 1

This is the first time I have managed to do sets of 10 swings with my slippery-handled 40kg. They went well overall, although my technique wasn’t great because I was focusing so hard on my grip. The get-ups were fairly solid. It feels very good to be able to do this full session with my own 40kg kettlebell - I’m really looking forward to being able to do it in the set time.

Edit: later in the evening I went to the gym with a friend - did some deadlifts but really tweaked my lower back
