Just like this picture. brings back lots of great memories.nobody knows swings like a gymnast.
Back on schedule finally, and for once I didnt feel dead right before the session. Slept well and body feels relatively stable.Still LOTS of stretching thumping and rifga to do but things aren't acute for a change. Course with me wait ten minutes and that can change.
Good to be back focusing on swings again. I like the snatch but know that I can't train it hard at all anymore and should be happen to do it a little. THe bent arms involved do not make my right shoulder happy, whereas the swings actually do. SO swings it is and lots of work to be done perfectly those, that's for sure. It's all easy til its heavy. Or you have to do 100 reps of anything.
Today being speed day I decided to only do 5 reps a side and then transfer, to keep acceleration as high as possible each rep.When you can switch hands before lactate sets in you are testing the overall system more than one particular set of muscles(specifically hand and forearm flexors). Transfering definitely affects a different musculature and lets the force stay high longer than staying on one arm.
One arm swings
16 kg 5/5/5/5x2
5/5/5/5x 15 sets
these went great,very snappy and with good rooting all the way through the rep.really feeling my way around the balance point too, playing with laying back at different times to find the optimal power spot. Maintained good speed for all three hundred although the last 50 was tough on my hands. a bit tender :))
16kg 60 sec x 3 sets. Right shoulder felt really good. solid set.bicep is loosening up too.
20 kg x 200feet per arm
200 feet per lap
6 laps/1200 feet/
I was tired and it was late.the extra weight does make a difference though. This will evolve to 24 kg rack walk day.
got LOTS of tea today. made me realize that I havent been drinking near enough.datsit, gotta stretch.
