I hate burpies too. How do you mean 10 R and 10 L if it's double armed?

Jo said...

Clarification: in one set, i do 10 double armed, 10 right-arm only and 10 left-arm only resulting in 30 total. and then followed by those dreaded burpies.

hopefully the burpies get alot easier once i start to carry less body weight. it's killing me now....

got my email about shopping list?

Wowee! That's alot of swings. My ankle snaps when I do a squat so I've been working on trying to strengthen them.

I can do about 11 burpies in 30 seconds, and that's an all out for me.

Yes I got your email thanks. I sent you details of the gym with the complete set of KBs. How do I buy a KB? Will they ship it to me?

I've been following a work out for that uses the same principles as the KB workout and uses lots of swings and snatches rather than the usual namby pamby type moves. I really feel like I've done a workout. I think it would be good if I went to the gym more than once in three weeks. Somehow reading your blog makes me feel like I'm working out!
