It’s A Heat Wave! ETK Turned Up The Heat!

I’m not gonna lie. Tuesday’s variety kicked my butt. And my wife’s butt.

You know how you do a workout, and the next day you’re so sore you can’t move your arms and legs properly? You feel like you’ve aged 20 years, and you walk like a shuffling 80-year-old? That was Wednesday.

And no, we didn’t bother torturing ourselves on Wednesday, either. Add the soreness to the first 90 degree day of the year and that added up to “day off“.

So we did Wednesday’s workout today. It’s very nearly a repeat of Monday’s workout with the exception of substituting swings for snatches. And not easy swings either.

The roll of the dice gave us six minutes to do 25-rep swing sets with 10 second rest periods between them. And today was hotter than yesterday, even at 6:00 p.m.

We hammered through our clean and presses and pull-ups, with Val using the 12 KG for all her sets this time, and then went to the swing sets. Our first two rest periods were right on the money at 10 seconds, but the rest were when we could catch our breath. Cameron and I did 6 sets total, while Val did 5 before she had to run out the door and pick up our youngest from Karate.

Cameron used the 16 KG while I stayed with my 24 KG. I did my swings right-handed, left-handed, two handed, right-handed, left-handed, two-handed. While we didn’t reach our goal of 200-230 swings, we still felt smoked and jumped in the pool for an after workout cool-down.

Friday is an off-day, then heavy day for Saturday. Get ready to rock!
