Gotcha. I might just keep with the KB's and bodyweight stuff and add in some jump rope for more cardio. But soon we'll have outdoor ice...

I've hit the point where my legs are fine with 20 minutes of KB swings and squats, but my lungs still aren't. At all. Actually my grip started to give out last night. I tried to push from 15 minutes up to 20 and went back from 20:40 seconds of work:rest up to 30:30. Didn't quite hit "failure".

I do feel like I'm getting a little stronger and improving my muscular endurance though. My back isn't and hasn't bothered me hardly at all, which was a little nagging early on (doing heavy back squats hurt so bad I had to quit).

I also just started the "rotisserie" core workout before my "upper body" days. That actually is pretty good/tough. Front plank, side plank, crunches, other side plank, and superman. I've got a pretty weak core so that should help.
