Steve must have had his Weetabix this morning for the programming for the session this morning was a medley of SQUATS!
On the starting block was the Houston Kettlebell Test…..more kettlebell testing !
This test includes Goblet squats (holding the kb close to the body while you squat) and Swings.
You start at 5 and add a rep for each exercise for each successive minute till you reach 12/15.
It doesn’t really get fun till you start to reach 9,10,11 reps.
If doing multiple Air squats was hard enough adding a bit of weight to it in the form of a kettlebell, it gets that bit harder.
The squat total so far is 64. I stopped the Houston Test at 12.
Just because you can never do enough squats the met con included a whole bunch of squats too.
It went like this .
AMRAP 10 Minutes (as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes)
8 Front Squats 20Kg
8 Wall Push ups
Following Stevens advice to scale down the push ups, I gave the wall push ups a go. A bit easier on the arms but kinder to my back.
I completed 8 rounds, and funnily that also makes 64 squats.
So the grand total amount of squats for today is 128!
Phew I am all Squatted out!
