Swings I would do for overall cardio and explosiveness without impact (because my feet can't take running or whatnot).
I really like that idea of doing a rep max for time instead of the 5x10... It would shorten my gym time but simultaneously increaasing the intensity and volume... love it... thank you. I admittedly did not get through the entire book as I stopped at the boring but big portion because I liked it so much and ran with that.
I am keeping away from the cleans and carries for now due to rolling my ankle kinda badly while doing some farmers walks. I don't think it would have been so bad if I wasn't carrying an additional 230lbs, really unsure how that happened as I have been doing farmers walks for ages and it's the first time I ever rolled my ankle. Once my ankle heals I will certainly change back to the cleans and carries for conditioning. I can see how I did not make that clear so I want to make sure I stated that now.
I think I will stop doing so many reps on the bench so I can do better on my presses. I was seeing the bench as no more than an assistance to my presses so that will probably help more.
Thanks for the suggestions, I will certainly run with those!
