Kettlebell Thrusters and Swings

I had planned on going to the gym at lunch today to do some squats and presses; however, it wasn't to be. So this evening, instead of burning up some $3.69 a gallon gas to go to the gym, I enlisted the help of my cannonball with a handle.

Kettlebell Thrusters

4 x 20 (35# kb)
1 minute rest between sets

Kettlebell Swings

3 x 40
1 min rest

Notes: For the Thrusters I held the kb upside down with two hands. Getting the last few reps in during the last two sets were tough. For the swings, I alternated hands as my grip dictated. Not an immense mount of work, but not bad for sweating in what is supposed to be the formal dining room! :-)
