Sand Dune Sesh

Published 04/08/2010

What a beautiful day!  Got to the dunes around 6pm equipped with a 16kg kettlebell and a rested and freshly massaged body.  Ass-kicking included the following: warmup – walked with kettlebell to small dune ~5-6 min switching grip from clean “catch” to farmer’s walk style run over to large dune ~ 3-4 min @ fast pace working...
