I've enjoyed variations of this little combo for a couple of years, it's always a lot of fun and can even feel a little bit like a game. Most recently a friend and I did the workout for 10 rounds followed by a more focused strength workout. If you have a group, you can even perform this as an interesting relay race. No matter how many rounds you choose, be sure to record the amount of time so that you can see how you improve the next time you give it another try.
Not a problem! Also, for Florida, since it dipped under 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) that meant everyone was running around freezing, or were gleefully wearing any and all of the "cold weather clothes" that they never get to wear. Seriously, you would have thought a bizzard was on the way, or that the ski lodge was next door. I understand though, unless Floridians travel at all during the winter, we don't get to wear any cold weather things. I'm sure people with fireplaces are hastily firing them up...

This certainly raised the temperatures across the board:
We warmed up with Primal Move then timed how long it took to complete 100swings (participants chose their - both chose a moderate weight). I am proud to say that everyone was able to do it in a single set, which is always nice to see. It also means that next time they'll want to choose something maybe a little heavier? :) HAHA.
Now for the circuit -- 5 toasty rounds of:
After hearing reports from friends, and seeing what was up with their FOOD JOURNALS, I was inspired to make a particularly... "interesting" workout for the small group. Emphasing yet again the basics, and practicing a few new things which are very important auxillary exercises.
