Five Minute Swipe Test


Had an unexpected cancellation this morning and what to do with the time? Normally I would just stretch out but I have been thinking about doing a five minute clubbell swipe test since I did such an easy 50 reps last week and stopped myself.

I was going to do it tomorrow but felt so good I figured I could do the test and still have plenty of time to stretch out. I've done 300 continuous with this light weight but that was eons ago.

I decided to do it cold, no warmup at all and I forgot chalk but really didn't need it. It was very easy for me; I wish the five minute snatch test, even with the 16 kg was this easy,lol. But this is a very natural move for me. I even got a nice sprint in to the finish. Just like old times :))

Tomorrow I will shoot for 50 with the 15's and then work up to 100 with the 15's again before doing the same with the 20's.

Not too long ago two days after returning from being on my feet for 12 plus hours three days straight would have meant no training at all for a week and being in serious physical pain the whole time.

This is much better.:))

thanks boris,

let me tell you how cool it was for me to be able to even think about 'testing' let alone just do it out of the blue.
especially after this last weekend and training yesterday.
it's so great to be able to really train and actually recover again,lol.
I can see great things for the swipe for me too.

I will keep it going!

I came across a nice quote while re-reading Randall Gould's great China memoir China in the Sun the other day. Gould was a veteran member of the old China press corps before the war.
