Feeling a touch burnt-out today -- and had a lot of other stuff to accomplish -- so I hammered out a quick & light workout at home.



TGU:

(The only bells I have at home are a 35#/16kg and a 18#/8kg that I purchased for instructional purposes -- turns out doing a set of get-ups holding onto both at the same time works your grip like mad!)

Later (8PM), I hit the 48kg for 2-arm swings for 100 reps in small sets with a 2-3 min rest between sets. I don't have training time for things like deadlifts and plyos right now, but throwing in these heavy swings with maximum force in short sets a few times per week seems to work the explosive power movement…
