Long cycle clean and press, a day early
Had to get it done a day early today as there is just no good time to train tomorrow. I was seriously wiped for a few hours after yesterdays CNS snatch assault but felt fine this morning. Plus I was hoping to skip ahead and miss the DOMS that I knew was coming :))
decent stretchout left calf is a but tight and don't have time to get it all out before work
One bell clean and push press
12 kg x 5/5
16 kg x 5/5 x2
20 kg x 5/5/
no go, the form felt fine, very strong position now but the left shoulder wasn't stable on the first dip, which was the point of trying this style, maybe skip over the unstable aspect but it was a non starter.
two bell long cycle clean and push press
2 16kg x 5
2 20kg x 3 (clunks :((
Two bell long cycle clean and press
2 16kg x 5
2 20 kg x 5 x 5 sets
these felt good with no clunks and pretty stable. couldn't decide on head/eye position though. both straight ahead and looking up at the bells felt good. I think eyes on the horizon will help my lack of overhead mobility more than looking up; although the lookup position makes it more like an 'incline' press and I don't need as much overhead mobility.
Have to experiment more.
two bell swings
2 16's x 8 x 2 sets
never liked these. I have to go too wide and feel awkward with no good power spot or leverage. Just playing around
One KB Row
24 kg x 8/8 x 4 sets
these were surprisingly hard! short rests too. I go you go.
Floor KB extensions
16 kg x 10 x 5 sets
triceps were very tired from everything yesterday and today but this exercise continues to work
30 Deg DB lateral
12 lbs x 3 x 10/10
I need to do something for the supraspinitus and this seems like a good one if I'm too lazy to bring the bodyblade home. no shoulder irritation either.
