Peaking

If I didnt know better I'd say I am actually peaking. I am going to teach at the RKC this coming weekend and have been working to get in the best shape possible for the cert. Symptoms of peaking: usually heavy weights and loads feel light, energy is high, recovery is fast,previous tough workouts are done with decidely less effort, and you finish workouts feel strong and ready to do more! Of course figuring out the proper gait mechanics and having significantly less knee pain is also in that mix.

Snatch
26x5/5/5/5x2
36x5/5x2
44x5/5


53x6/6x15 sets 180 reps/9540 pounds

This was very strong and easy. made some tape grips and the large blister I have held up great! movements were strong and powerful.quick pace as well, only three of us rotating.

Ribbons/Halos
a great new move shown to me by Ken Black. Basically combines a chooping motion into a halo.I really like it. 5 sets of 15 with the 26/

Band pushdowns 100 reps/red band

bw 161.4
bf 10.4% (there ya go)
