JoGo Gripes: TGU's do not belong in timed workouts! Also, i arrived early and was changed and ready to warm up at the start of class. However, since most people were very early, the class began early. I did not have time to do more than PVC shoulder pass thru's and a couple of sit ups before the workout started. I used my angst to to grind though the JoGo. The Box and burps were done right but my TGUs looked like they were performed during a seizure. At lease I was able to flog myself for my poor performance during the burpees yesterday.

Notes: The JoGo workout was tough but the most difficult part was keeping the progression of the workout straight. The prescribed format was as many rounds in 20 min and the prescribed KB Push Press weigh was a very disproportionate 24 kg. I found it to be a challenging workout, but I think almost any couplet or triplet would be superior.

I may have even missed a round or two because of early morning brain slow. and still was the last to finish. I did not do any of the "Post workout... workout" stuff because I did not want to. Leg curls and crunches may be great but I would rather do something else so I did. I am sure that this was a physically demanding workout but it was not for me.

"The Free Range 15" 
135#/95# Clean and Jerk every 15 seconds for 15 minutes for max reps up to 60.
The clean must reach full squat depth (no power clean) and bar must go overhead with full hip extension by the end of the 15 seconds or the rep does not count. No doubling/catching up.

Could not read the Writing On The Wall very well so I made guesses on some names.

Notes: This one was my own special brand of fun that I cooked up and asked Emilie/JoGo if I could do sometime. Emilie liked it and decided to share with the group. She came up with name. 

I did 4 Clean and Jerk and 50 Clean and Thruster and skipped 6 reps from fear of missing. I feel that I could have done at least 2 more if not all but I apparently did not fully have my mind right. I would like to give this a try again in a few months.

10 (*6) rounds with 20 lbs. weight vest:
160m run (length of indoor track)
10 pull-ups

*10:32

Notes: Stopped after 6 rounds due to chafing (intended 10). Must use rash guard next time. Otherwise, the weight vest worked like a charm. An evil charm given to the damned!

After suffering the 3" and 6" scabby rashes from "Kettlebell Hell",  and the blood oozing from the blisters also from KBH, I figured I would quit and chalk it up to experience. 

Because it was the evening at the Rec. Center, there were mobs of people doing partial whatevers everywhere. This made it difficult to do the pull-ups after each lap because I sometimes had to wait for the bar. This kept Pukie in check which was ok with me. 

Next time I use the vest I will do 1/2 Murph (1/2 mile run, 50 pull-ups, 100 push-ups, 150 squats, 1/2 mile run), wear a rash guard, do the workout in the morning at the Rec Center.

Notes: The Jogo Kettlebell Hell workout is not something I wish repeat (this was my second time with this one). Though very challenging to do 400 • 24 kg Swings, the chafing and blisters out ways the benefit. Something I recall from last November when I did this workout was the chafing on my forearms from the catch at the bottom of the swing sucks. I'd rather do 400 burpies.   I did all sets of 20 swings unbroken as was my goal and the burpees were a relief from the raw skin causing swings.
Enough bitching, lets eat some TURKEY.

Spent about 4 of the 20 min box jumping, Perhaps 4 min on shoulder press and about 12 of the 20 min recharging my week shoulders. Craig said something to the effect of "that's a major chink in your armor". Guess I have a lot of shoulder pressing in my future.
