There is that darn fridge again. At least real food is on the way!

Those band dislocates are becoming a favorite of mine, along with the presses things get loosened up quickly.

So you are trying to let the new neighbors know just how freaky you are?

30 baby! and still going!

1. warmup
foam rolling - upper and lower body
stick/ball on calves, feet, glutes
ECWU #1

2. Energy
The Thirsty Thirty:
30 KB snatches - 24kg
30 burpees
30 DU's
30 pushups on parallettes
30 1H swings - 24kg
30 DB overhead press - 15# DB's
30 BW squats
30 situps
30 around the world - 12kg KB
30 walking lunges
30 sumo KB DL - 24kg
30 KB cleans - 24kg

Total time: 21:40

Notes:
-It's called the Thirsty thirty beause the night prior I had downed almost an entire bottle of wine in an hour. Not a great idea when you have a low tolerance like me! Despite not feeling great I made it through the workout, it wasn't hard at all, there were times where it sucked some but overall not bad.

I did want to mention that yesterday on the KB snatches ti didn't feel nearly as good on my left arm/shoulder than it did the other day with the ladders. I need to warmup my shoulders more I think, I'm going to do the same routine I did the other day and see how the snatches feel. Yesterday they felt like something was...popping is the right word but shifting in my left shoulder.
