10 rounds for time:

10 KB side step swings 25/35 (R+L=1)
10 KB juggles 25/35
10 KB reverse woodchoppers 25/35 (R+L=1)
10 KB pushups 25/35
10 KB halos 25/35 (R+L=1)

Post time to comments.

Now, your challenge today (besides sitting on the toilet) will be just keeping a hold of that KB.  Your grip is going to be SHOT.  Our suggestion:

Form up!

Use your hips to drive the bell up, not your arms, back and shoulders.  Doing so will keep hand fatigue to a minimum.

Also, there is no need to death grip that KB.  Relax, man.  It's not going anywhere.  Find little places to rest during the movements.  The top of each movement will give you a small opportunity to relax and pump your hands - ONCE.  Take each opportunity you get.  The pushup is strategically placed.  It's the only move without a gripping pull in it. Move it a round a bit if you need to.  If you need it right after the juggles instead of after the woodchoppers - cool.   

We've been going pretty hard at you this week.  You up to it?  Don't get hurt now, you have to stay smart, but push. 

Look, you've been through the worst GPP has to throw at you.  It doesn't get worse than Specter.  If you hung with that one - you HAVE to finish this week out.  You have to see this all the way through to the end.  

Why?  Because it's good training. 

Here is what I believe.  I believe every human on earth has a job to do.  A calling, if you will.  This calling will be no small thing.  It may be small if you are the type who measures yourself against others.  It may be small compared to what you've always hoped it would be.  But this calling isn't small.  It'll be way bigger, way harder and way more ROUGH than you ever expected it to be.  Chances are, if you aren't fully prepared, you'll fail to fulfill it.  Now here is what's wrong with that:

Although you may think this calling is "small" - it'll matter to someone (someone you love?).  Your calling is likely, to be crucial to their success and/or happiness at some point in their lifetime.  Maybe not all of it.  But, a piece of it - for sure.  If you aren't there for them, who will be?

The other thing that is wrong with that, is YOUR OWN success and/or happiness throughout life will hinge upon several factors (not all inclusive). 

1 - Whether, or not you are willing to do what it takes to become successful/happy.
2 - Whether, or not you would recognize success/happiness (those living a "numb" existence cannot). 
3 - Whether, or not you'll have the health to enjoy your success/happiness - once you get it. 

Anything we are going to throw at you down here at GPP will pale in comparison to any of the above.  But it IS good training.  You could never go through this week and be "numb" at the same time. 

The thing is, you've proven, to this point, that you have what it takes.  So, we KNOW you can.  Will you? 


It was 20 deg in the GG at GPP OK during the first part of their workout today.  Talk about HELLth week ...
