So on Monday i managed to form some nasty calluses on both of my hands doing the 15-15 50 Set Kettlebell Snatches workout. Still I liked this cardio-strength-endurance combo style and wondered if I could be doing Turkish Getups this way and to take it easier combine them with Windmills.
The 15-15 would be to short (so I thought) as the full TGU takes more time then a Snatch. I decided to do the following:
36 seconds doing 2 TGU’s and 2 Windmills with a 16 kg Kettlebell
36 seconds of rest
20 sets like this.
Turned out I was actually able to do 4 TGU’s and 2 Windmills in each set. So after the first 5-6 sets that’s what I did. I did my share of sweating, I was not fatigue at the end so this was a nice workout, given the fact that the TGU is pretty much a whole body workout.
In the end I did 71 TGUs and 40 Windmills in 26 minutes 🙂
We went on vacation for 11 days and then I had a track day on the Istanbul Park circuit. A whole day, seven sessions of 20 minutes from 9 am to 4 pm a very hot day.
17 years after I bought this 1994 Aprilia RS125 we made it onto the intended race track 🙂
I alternated the sessions with my friends Honda CB600F, stings like a hornet 😀
Even though I must have drunk around 6 liters of water and no need to go the toilet I was apparently still dehydrated at the end of the day which took its toll on the rest of the week. I decided to skip workouts until fully recovered and then some.
So today I was back behind my kettlebell doing the last exercise routine in a 40-20 interval fashion for to sets and I was breathless. 🙂
I won’t rush back into pace and pick it up slowly.
