Sleep is good.
Monster Magnet CD just arrived. Finally some new music!Metallica Enter Sandman is back as well!
And sleep is strong. Finally got back on track last night and what a difference it made in the gym. Finally catching up from the last week. Not sleeping could kill you(me).
Had Snatch vo2 to do today and needed 45 sets of hopefully more sets of 8 than last time.My problem with doing my goal of 50 sets of 8 is that I will have to get fit enough to do 60 sets because I need at least 10 sets of warmup before I can 'go fast' enough to get 8 in 15 seconds with good form. I probably will do 10 sets of 7/7 then rest 5 minutes and THEN go right to 50 sets of 8. That sounds like a plan.
Anyway, onto today:
Snatch VO2 15:15
15 sets of 7
30 sets of 8
End HR= 170
Wow, that was almost easy.The absolute best my cardio has felt since I started doing this training.No warmup at all and first 15 sets ended with time to spare and I started the next set a few seconds early. Could never do that before.30 sets of 8 is PR too and even some of these sets had time left at the end.Not much but a second or so.Basically went over the top hardstyle but really made sure to nail the false grip overhead position. That is what really makes the difference for me with my grip and keeping me more upright.Even when you go over the top it still slides to the side a bit which makes the motion smaller and faster.
You can still push it down and increase eccentric speed which is the only way to go faster.
Let it go, as Louie used to yell. Let it go. Push it down is more like it.
Keeping the bell in closer also put the arm higher in the crotch. everything is linking up so well.very pleased with my form work and with that my strength and endurance in the snatch of late.
I can really see 50 sets of 8 now and even starting to train this protocol with the 20 kg~!
1800 feet switching every 200 .This just keeps getting better. Long term goal is 3000 continuous feet.This really makes me focus on gait mechanics.
One CB Shield Cast
10 lbs x 60 reps - switch every ten
15lbs x60 reps - switch every ten
These felt great! Never did them like that, one arm after the other but it's my new style.Keeps the HR up and allows for good muscle work at the same time.movement felt great and my shoulders said yes as well.
datsit. Did LOTS of Z total, 6 times with every client. The more I do it the better I feel so there ya go.
Plenty of floor and g5 time today as well.
