Turkey Day

Took yesterday off.
I read a study that said doing complexes consisting of 3 exercises for 10 reps and 4 sets in a circuit format will increase your metabolism by 20% for the following 38 hours. The exercises were Squat, Power Clean and Bench Press. In preparation for eating a lot, I met Eddie at a local park and did the following this morning:
15 min of joint mobility
Workout with 24kg Kettlebell, 5 reps, 4 circuits.
Windmill l/r
Bottoms up Clean l/r
Snatch l/r
Military Press l/r
2 minutes rest
After 4 sets we set up a swing circuit and set the Gymboss on 15 seconds.
24KG 15 seconds switching hands every 2 reps
15 Seconds Rest
16KG 15 seconds ballistic style 2 hand
15 Seconds Rest
20KG 15 Seconds switching hands every 3 or 4 reps
Rest 15 Seconds
We did the swing circuit for 30 intervals or 15 sets of about 10 reps.
Ready to eat the turkey now (and maybe some dessert)
