Getups and Windmills

After a week of lazing around for vacation, it was time to get back at it.

Kettlebell Turkish Getups, 50# x 3/side

Kettlebell Windmills, 50# x 3/side

These were my heaviest Getups and Windmills to date and they felt pretty good.  Getups using my left arm took more effort than my right, but Windmills felt fairly equal on both sides.  It doesn’t seem that long ago that 10# felt heavy for a windmill.

Turkish Getups and 1K Row

3/4 Turkish Getups 45# x 5/side
(using two kettlebells in one hand, 25#, 20#)
Much tougher with the left hand than right
1K Row: 5:35
3/4 Turkish Getups 50# x 2/side
(using one kettlebell)
Again… tougher on the left side than right… need to situp more at an angle than straight up.  It comes more naturally on my right side.
