Friday 10.7 33/84 Week 5 TT Kettlebell Carnage, Peter Jankowski, MCTT
OS warm up (http://originalstrength.net/)
Workout C: Simple and Sinister
1-arm KB(20kg) swings-5x-10/ea
A good goal to work toward would be a 1:1 ratio swings to rest which will take you approximately 5 minutes.
20kg still tough on the grip. Didn't drop it at least.
TGU-5x-1/ea-16kg
Same as the swings, start on you “strong side” and then alternate for 10 singles. Like the swings your goals is a 1:1 work to rest ratio.
Will be at this for quite a while.

Monday 10.10 36/84 Week 6 TT Kettlebell Carnage, Peter Jankowski, MCTT
OS warm up (http://originalstrength.net/)
Workout A: The No Brainer
2 Arm KB Swings(20kg) – 15 reps
Goblet Squats(20kg) – 5 reps
Push ups – 5 reps
Set your timer for 30 minutes and try and get through as many rounds of this circuit as possible.
17x-yikes, those squats are killer.
Received some advice from Peter, the author of "Carnage". Too late for Workout A. Will incorporate his suggestions for B and C. Thanks so much Peter!!!

Tuesday 10.11 37/84 Week 6 TT Kettlebell Carnage, Peter Jankowski, MCTT
OS warm up (http://originalstrength.net/)
Spider man crawl-29s/12s-8x
TGU-16kg-2/ea
Peter gave me some suggestions to improve my press. One is to walk with the 16kg at the top position of the TGU, then complete the get up. I did a short, short walk. That KB is heavy and hard to balance.

Wednesday 10.12 38/84 Week 6 TT Kettlebell Carnage, Peter Jankowski, MCTT
OS warm up (http://originalstrength.net/)
Workout B:With Peter's modifications
"On workout B if you have access to 2 x 12kg then do the following for "The Eagle"
Dbl Clean, 5 to 8 front squats, unrack the KB's but do not let go of them, 20 yard farmers walk, then reclean the bells and do it all again up to 8 times. The goal is to never take your hands off the bells. This protocol is brutal but very effective. It will challenge your grip and conditioning massively."
Dbl clean-1
Front squat-5
20 yard walk
5x-Agree with Peter, brutal. Don't think I have ever cleaned 2-12kgs. Not as bad as I expected, squats were difficult.
Loaded carries-12kgs
Suitcase-with/without-alternating
5x

I banged up my wrist pretty good today. I do great with my right hand, but can't seem to not bruise my left wrist. I'm left handed, so I guess I just grip or swing harder with that hand. I'm gonna break down and get some super cool wrist bands.

Friday 10.14 40/84 Week 6 TT Kettlebell Carnage, Peter Jankowski, MCTT
OS warm up (http://originalstrength.net/)
Workout C: Simple and Sinister-With Peter's modifications
1-arm KB(20kg) swings-5x-10/ea
A good goal to work toward would be a 1:1 ratio swings to rest which will take you approximately 5 minutes.
20kg still tough on the grip. Got the 1:1 ratio, not ready for 24kg KB yet.
TGU-12kg
Press when:
~on the floor
~transistion to hand before leg sweep
~half kneeling
~standing up
1/ea-10x-These weren't perfect presses, not quite shoulder height, but very close. I was trying not to push press the last one. Left "less strong" than right. Will keep at it. Diet sucks-half way through with no progress. ARGH.

Concetta take extra rest if you need it on the swings. Make sure each set is perfect. Hit those lockouts hard (perfectly upright glutes squeezed, knee caps pulled up, core braced and shoulders packed). If you can't achieve that for all 10 reps on all 10 sets go back to the 16kg. If you're hitting it hard the 16 should still be a formidable challenge.

Likewise with that pressing protocol on the TGU's. If you can't lock those presses out perfectly don't use the 12kg. Go back to the 8kg or a 10kg if you have one available. Earn your stripes then move back up. Perfect practice!

Final thing. How many calories are you eating? I don't want to sound like a broken record here but in the past I've always thought you eat way to little. It never works out because eventually it's horrible eating that low and you end up blowing out and then beating yourself up.

I haven't seen a recent picture of you but every photo I have seen has left me wondering why you want to lose weight? I know you have trouble spots but overall you are very lean but lacking muscle. So what if you ate more, good stuff, so you feel full and can fuel your workouts better leading to more intensity in your training, muscle gain, strength increases and ultimately the fat loss in those trouble spots you so desperately what to remove.

Just a thought based on previous attempts. If you're approaching it differently this time that is great but if your on the same path I think it's time you try something different...
