But hey, gotta practice what I preach so a 15 minute power nap and off I go. Luckily Joe was in today and that always helps; knowing someone is waiting for you and has a big workout to do themselves. A very toasty 90+ today in stones gym and still no fan. My heat tolerance is getting better all the time. Love that sweat. I can still vividly remember the (recent) days when I could not work out hard enough to break a good sweat without hurting something.I love to train; it is a blessing to be able to create your own strength.
Swing Snatch( one swing, one snatch )
10 swing snatches each side with 24 kg
One arm swing/transfer combination
10 right, 10 left, 10 transfers with 24 kg=30 reps
man, when am doing it it seems like so much work but when I write it down, and think of the crazy reps my wife does it seems like nothing, But it worked me good, and not too hard, so like ot or not, that's where I am today. I will take it and like it. Snatches are great and so much fun to do. I can easily remember just a short while ago when I could not snatch at all and all I could do was swing.
Now that was ok compared to not being able to train at all but not nearly as good as being able to snatch, for decent weight and reps and volume. Now it seems I can snatch twice a week; something I've never been able to recover from before.
right arm overhead position was very good today and I was still working on getting the shoulder packed better,closer to my ear and pushed back; all at the same time.Still need work on getting a deep hook grip instead of a palm grip but it too is getting there.
And again, setting up flat on my feet made all the difference and was the one reference cue I kept coming back to. Everything seemed to fall into place from there. Perfect.
rack walks with 16 kg
200 foot per arm
trying to walk slower and keep my hips under me. this helps.arms get way tired though, after all these snatches,lol.
stick shoulder extensions
rifga for hammies/calves
Once I really get the shoulder girdle square and plumb I'm going to be doing some handstands again. I feel it. First things first though.
