Saturday 7/30/11

Kettlebell swings on a 30 second on, 30 second off interval. First 10 minutes was with the 35lb kettlebell followed by one minute of rest. The next 10 minutes was with a 55lb. kettlebell. Had to cut the interval down to about 20-25 seconds.

It's been a good week in training. Lots of walking (but not too much), and did some foam rolling and stretching one day earlier in the week. I did spend about 4 hours in bunker gear on Thursday doing some training and was very dehydrated and weak during and for a bit of time afterward. Big headache, lots of water weight lost but, good nutrition followed and recovery was good. Felt great the next day.
