Tuesday's 3 exercise workout in nature

Tuesday's workout in the park.  Two other guys dropped in on the session to do chin-ups of their own.  It's great to see some many people exercising out in nature. 

A1) Weighted Chin-ups w 20kg:  3 sets x 6 reps
A2) Weighted Single Leg Squat (SLS - pistol variant) w 20kg:  3; 2; 1  (both legs)
A3) Kettlebell Swings w 20kg KB: 3 x 30 reps.

So adding swings in felt good..  6 reps of 20kg felt significantly harder than 5 reps.

This minimalist style of training very much appeals to me at the moment, as I am making great gains and still have plenty of energy to practice/play with other different sub-conditioning level movement patterns through-out the day, without fatigue effecting the performance of them.  Personally I've also found it to be easier to keep motivated whilst training alone when you have a small selection of exercises and keep the workout duration between 15 - 25 minutes. 

I may switch to longer, more volume based workouts with more exercise variation in winter.. we'll see.
