    Commando Rocks
    Shoulder Stretching
    90/90 stretch

    Halos 3 x 10 x 20 kg
    Goblet Squats 3 x 5 x 20 kg

    1HS 6 x 10 x 24 kg
    TGU 2 x 1 x 20 kg
    TGU 4 x 1 x 24 kg

    Back on track this evening. Took my time stretching and warming up, and went back down to the 24 kg for swings. They felt much better, so I will start here, building up one set each day. Then, over the rest of the program, I will slowly incorporate the 28 kg. Much better session tonight.

    Single kettlebell session tonight. Everything felt back to normal. Swings were sharp again, and the TGUs were solid. Slow and steady moving forward, no more rushing towards the 32 kg kettlebell.

    Smart move.... I did the same for my get-ups but I do them MUCH slower and pay way more attention to the finer points and really working the positions and bracing everything and “breathing behind the shield”. That article from last week on the w beige about “rib flare” was a real game changer for me! As @The Nail says “brake for those curves” it is not a sprint but a life long journey

    Recovery night, sort of.....when I got home, we needed to start setting the menu for next week in place, as we are travelling for Thanksgiving. Since I am the cook, and my wife and I are doing most of the cooking/planning, last night had to be done. Coordinating with 4 different sets of people can be stressful, as well as dietary restrictions/choices. So, what should have taken about an hour, took over 3 hours, three phones in action, so sort out meals for 10 over 3+ days wasn't easy.

    Fantastic workout tonight. I was feeling refreshed after having yesterday off, so I used the 24 kg kettlebell for my swings, sharp & solid every set. They really felt good with that weight.

    Get ups were strong and solid even though I used the 24 kg instead of the 20 kg kettlebell. Made me stay focused on each stage. Which is of course very important in TGU practice. I felt so good I added two additional sets with the 28 kg kettlebell, one TGU with each arm. Those two felt absolutely amazing. My focus kept me solid, and they felt great from start to finish.

    Another great session today. I was going to slowly add sets with the 28 kg kettlebell as I progressed through this "How to Get Better at Everything by Training Multiple Get-Ups" program, but I changed my mind. This is the perfect weight for me right now, it is challenging but it is not taking away from my get ups. So, no sense in moving up in weight.

    The 28 kg kettlebell is feeling really good for the sets I am doing with it. I have to stay focused when getting up with it, it demands my full attention. Still, it feels good to be getting up with it.

    Strong session tonight. Swings remain crisp and sharp, the float is appearing more and more. Get ups were just as strong and sharp tonight. Keeping my body tensed as I start to get up keeps my opposite leg down, and staying tense keeps me focused throughout the entire movement.

    I am very glad I started this program. I have found a serious amount of respect for the Get Up. Not to mention, I have learned quite a bit about the TGU as I have progressed.
