Well I'm suffering from some serious DOMs and I think I tweaked my back a little which made me abandon the KBs and only do the elliptical machine, with a twist.

So Yesterday, I did 30 minutes of HIIT on the elliptical and 30 sec. fast 1 minute medium but during my "rest" time I grabbed my 250 hand grippers and did a set of 5 with each hand. I would also switch it up and try to do a 10 second static squeeze with each hand. Was fun and definitely made the time go by.

My back still feels a little funny so I don't know what I'm going to do. I might wait it out and workout on Thursday. We'll see.

Default Update.

Well my back is doing better and feels up to 95%. Since Tuesday, I've done nothing but use the elliptical and my hand grippers doing HIIT. I'm going on vacation next week and bringing my kettlebells along for the ride. So, all my workouts for the next week are going to involve the beach, KBs with some jump rope and maybe some bands. I might try and get a vid up but I cant find my cord to connect my camera to my PC, so we'll see.

Beach Day 1

This might be and only day of this week I'll be able to post unless the local coffee shop has free WiFi. I'm at my mother's house right now visiting, she's 45 min. from where my and my woman's family is staying, and I'm able to get an internet connection and telework for a little bit.

So...
My second day on the beach was yesterday and I decided that this was my first day to workout. My brother came by and he really wanted to workout with me and the kettlebells. He's a personal trainer and loves working out. He just got into KB so I'm trying to show him some stuff. Only problem he is the smaller more cut up version of me and can't do some of the 52lbs. KB stuff.
So I went down to the local ACE hardware shop and bought 12 ft. of rope at about a .25 inch thick. We grabbed my two 52lbs. KB, the rope and headed to the beach. At this time it's about 1:00 pm and the sun is hot and the beach is full. With Sun block and hats, we got to work.

I figured that the best thing to do was KB drags on the beach. The soft sand that is at the top of the beach was brutal trying to walk through and the KB would sink in the sand and we would have extra resistance when dragging them. I had the rope cut into two 6 ft. long strips and I tied each one to a KB. We started out with dragging 1 arm rows for a little over 20 yds. We each had one KB and would alternate arms with each drag. This was KILLER. I didn't realize the sand was going to add so much weight.

Right after we did one I looked around and everybody was looking at us. They all had the look of, "What the hell are they doing?" Some girls were looking but I think they were looking at my bro because he is the smaller more cut up version of me, the guy seems like he is always at 7% BF or less.

Right after that we turned right around and did a regular drag back to the other side. We did that for 2 sets. Next, I grabbed both KB and did normal Drags and then handed them back to my Brother to do a set then I grabbed them right back and did reverse drags back and then he did the same. We did this for 2. The sand was very unforgiving and each KB seems to get heavier as it would dig itself deeper into the ground with every set. By this time we are both huffing it and the sun was getting very hot. We did one more drag movement where we did a front raise "type " drag. We faced the KBs grabbed the rope and would pull the KBs to us by doing a front raise movement people would do with DBs. We only did this for half the distance and back switching in-between for two times and then dragged them again for half the distance for two more times but tried to sprint. I was so drained after dragging 105lbs. +. It was a great start for a beach workout. The only thing I would have done differently is alternate between using 2 at the same time and 1 more often. Today I'm just going to ride a bike around and give my legs a rest. Tomorrow will be Cleans and snatches maybe with some jump rope.

See you later.

that sounds awesome Dave, not just the beach workout, but also getting to workout with your brother. My brother wants nothing to do with lifting/training, sounds like you guys had a great workout that was fun too.

hrdgain81's Sig:I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.

Beach Days 2 - 4

Day 2: Yoga type stretches and high steps and kicking waves, yeah I know sounds very karate kid but that shit is hard.

Day 3: Yoga type stretches and took the day off. My lower back was acting up and I wanted to rest it up.

Day 4: Yoga type stretches.
KB High pulls 5 sets of 5
KB squats 5x5
KB rows 5x5
KB clean and press 5x5 ( did left side first and right).
Ab work.

My back is felling very weird. I don't know what I did but it only hurts a specific angles, i.e., I cant' do any twisting movements like windmills. I'll be working on more stretching to losen it up and see what happens.
