Clawing Back

Seems like once you start getting back into shape, you realize how out of shape you is.” – Me. To myself. In my head. After today’s workout.

Today I struggled, grunted and sweat profusely through two sets of a tabata circuit and finished with a hardcore row. Then I nearly blew chunks all over the place.

Here’s a list of what I did. I couldn’t keep track of how many reps but in this high intensity workout that’s not the point – you do 30 seconds of each kettlebell exercise and then rest for 15 seconds before moving on to the next. First though I warmed up with a 1500m row.

Kettlebell Halos (left and right) – with 35lbs. 

Kettlebell Swings – with 35lbs.

Bent Over Kettlebell Row (left and right) – with 25lbs.

Goblet Squats – with 45lbs. 

Crush Curls – with 35lbs. 

Box Steps

1 Arm Kettlebell Press – with 35lbs.

Headcutters – with 45lbs. 

Push Ups

After two rounds of that I was dying. And I was supposed to do three sets.

But Cathy seemed to realize I might kill myself on the last round so I caught my breath a little bit and then hit the rowing machine again. This time for 5 tabata 30/30 splits – meaning I rowed as hard as I could for 30 seconds and then rested for 30.

Then I puked in my mouth a little bit and walked circles in the parking lot until my stomach stopped revoting.

You may notice I keep using the word: “tabata” and I’ll write about it more in the future but here’s a link to find out more about that crazy style of working out.

Afterward I came home, stuck my foot in a bucket of ice and played some XBox.

 PAIN!!!
