Thursday Workout

Felt a bit stiff in the legs, probably from the squats yesterday or possibly the ballet. But I persevered.

Since yesterday was a kettlebell-fest, I decided to stick with mostly bodyweight stuff today:

Circuit 3x:

6 jump squats
pullups to fatigue (I got about 5 or 6 each set)
8 jump lunges each side
8 spiderman pushups each side
8 1-leg SB curls
TRX body rows to fatigue (about 20 each set)
6 burpees

Circuit 3x:
TRX plank, 30 sec.
15 TRX jackknifes
side planks, 30 sec. each side
SB x-body mountain climbers, feet on the ball, 8 each side

This was adapted from a Craig Ballantyne Turbulence Training workout. I wanted to throw in some TRX stuff because it's such a great tool and I haven't been making as much use of it lately as I should.

The workout as written called for 5 minutes of bodyweight squats as a finisher, but I just wasn't feeling it today. Also I didn't want to prefatigue my legs too much before ballet. Yeah, that's the ticket. Didn't want to prefatigue the ol' leggies :)

Tomorrow, more kettlebells. I'm rereading Enter The Kettlebell, trying to clean up my cleans and troubleshoot my snatches. Wish me luck!
