Been Traveling this week

Didn't feel like taking a KB on the airplane.
Took Tuesday off. Ran about 2 miles yesterday in Orlando until it poured rain so I ran back to the hotel and up 6 flights of stairs. Did a few push ups. Wanted to rest my hands anyway.
Back home now and had a good quick workout this evening: Medium Day
Added a twist to my Clean and Press Ladders.
1st ladder
1/1 53lb
2/2 53lb
3/3 53lb
4/4 53lb

2nd Ladder
1/1 70lb
2/2 70lb
3/3 70lb
4/4 53lb
Repeat 3/4/5 ladders same as 2nd.

Windmills 5/5
KB Pushups 2x15
Swings 10x20 After each set I walked out the garage down the driveway and picked up an acorn and brought it back did the next set. Got to five. Took the acorns back one at a time. I didn't have my gymboss.
Tomorrow it's Max v02 with the 44lb kb.
I talked to Eddie and he did v02 today 60 sets of 8 with 30lb kb. Nice work!
Just read Pavel's book Super Joints. Got an awesome quote:
"A man's reach should exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?"
My interpretation of this is that if you want something bad enough you'll do what it takes to get it. Even if it's beyond your immediate power. This applies to physical, mental, spiritual and all aspects of life.

I thought I was going to have to start putting my KB workouts on my photo website....Today was Variety...did slingshots (10 each way), dead lifts(5) and goblet squats(5)..5x.

Nice job. Take Friday off if you want. By the way, you're supposed to roll both dice. I can show you where to order one with KB exercises on one die and dots on the other. Good way to shake it up.
Did you take measurements before you started this week? Doesn't have to be perfect, just a pair of tight jeans that you can use to judge your progress.

I'd be interested in those dice...didn't think about measurements...good idea.
