I got beat up a little this morning.
The workout beat the hell out of me. I went home torn, bleeding, and covered in welts. Of course, it’s really all my own fault.
- I never wear socks, so when we do deadlifts I always drag the bar up and down my bare shins.
- I haven’t mastered the kettlebell clean, so when the weight comes up it slaps the back of my wrist.
- I didn’t manage my calluses, so when it came time for kettlebell cleans and pullups, my hands were just asking to be ripped.
On a positive note — I was much stronger with these today than I was the last time, when I scratched at 160.
15 KB Clean – Right arm (M 2 pood / W 1.5 pood)
15 KB Clean – Left arm
Completed 2 rounds in 12 minutes @ 1 pood (2 purple bands)
I neglected my hands for too long. I’ll be laying on the Aquafor for a while. But you don’t have to. Here are some good resources to make sure you don’t rip ‘em.
