    Unscheduled day off. Dinner with my son, his new wife, and my grandson. As much as I enjoy working with the kettlebells, this was more important. I will be back at it tomorrow.

    Simple punch the clock session tonight. I am focusing on reducing the rest time between sets, looking to challenge myself against the time constraints soon.

    It is amazing to me how quickly my heart rate goes up when I am doing this program. I do, however, seem to recover well, which makes this a perfect partner with S&S. I am considering just performing S&S starting next week, because I will have more time on my hands again for a while.

    The 20 kg felt light today. Not too light, that I would not be working, but light as in, I could almost do this all night. I may be going after the time challenge this weekend after all.

    Just a thought, do a press or two at the top of each get up. Just to maintain pressing strength.

    Great session this morning. I think I will be keeping this in my weekly routine. Instead of regular sessions like I have been performing lately, I am going to restart the program. The program was written to progress in pressing, why not go back to following it? Thanks @ShawnM for the reminder!

    Time to add the 24 kg into my routine. I performed the 100 swings in 4:45, and the get ups in 9:15, and I felt great throughout this session. Thanks to @Strong Rick for the inspiration to restart S&S with the idea of getting better as we progress!!! (y)(y)(y)

    Restarted Soju and Tuba tonight, and got ambitious, started with the 32 kg. Whew, what a workout. I will stick with the 32 kg for a few sessions, then I will drop back down to the 28 kg.

    @Strong Rick, this is the post where you convinced me to restart S&S, with greater recovery and better overall feel by doing so, from back in early August.

    Whew, that was something. I have discovered that Soju & Tuba will have to be with the 24 kg, not the 32 kg. It feels like the 32 kg was too much tonight afterwards.

    Quick and easy session tonight. Didn't work too much on mobility, I was pretty limber from moving around all day. No SLDL work though, just didn't have the time.....still a good workout.

    Today was tougher that I was expecting. I did power through, but it is taking significantly longer to complete this session with the additional work with the 24 kg. If this continues, I may need to drop back to working with the 20 kg only for another week or so.

    After work on Friday, my son & I packed up and traveled down to West Lafayette to see our beloved Cornhuskers take on Purdue on Saturday. While the game left something to be desired, we had a blast having a guys weekend. I taught him some mobility work to loosen his lower back and hips, we had some drinks, played some cribbage, and just had a good weekend.

    This was tough again today. Although, between a 3+ hour drive, coupled with sleeping in a strange bed, and other work I did when I got home, may have all contributed to my having a tough session. I will do my pressing tomorrow night, and see how everything feels in my next S&S warm up.

    Good session tonight, everything just felt strong. The 24 kg actually felt good I'm my hands tonight. Hopefully, it will feel as good tomorrow.

    This was a little better today. My swings felt stronger with the 24 kg, as well as my get ups. I will not be adding an additional set with the 24 kg for a while. Still, this does feel good.

    Great session today. Two additional sets of bent over rows and SLDL's, and they felt strong and solid. I spent some additional time on my mobility this morning. The T-Spine work really set the tone for today, as I loosened right up after that work.
