Top of the peak.
All three of us showed up today pretty tired. Feeling strong but just not peppy. A sure sign we are ending this part of the up cycle and need to back off a bit; both in intensity and volume.
Perfect timing for me as I have a re cert next Saturday and should take this week lighter, as usual before a cert.I thought that the two days between workout( wed instead of thur) would result in more recovery but it didn't.
I don't know if it's because we've peaked or it didn't help and double up on DOMS instead of bypassing it :))
Either way it was a solid but cautious workout as everything felt 'creaky'. Nothing out but just tired.
one arm swing warmup: 16kg x 5/5/5 x 3
16 kg x 5/5, 3/3
20 kg x4/4
24 kg x5/5
x10/10 x 3 sets!
wanted 110 or 115 but thought better of doing another set of 10/10 as my gut said no. So I listened. My concentration wasn't perfect and while it was great not to be scared of the weight and the workload and just treat it like a work weight instead of a max weight I also didn't want to dis respect it ,either.
nice to get three sets of 10/10 too. One of my goals is to get my 100 snatches each week with 5 sets of 10/10. That should be my floor , my baseline from which I can peak. It's coming :))
Two hand swing
28 x 10
Easy! This was the heaviest two hand swing I've done in months so that was nice. I had planned on 5 reps, just to touch the weight but it was so strong I continued. That's what was strange, I felt strong but tired at the same time :))
Two hand arm casts
25 x 5/5
these felt strong too but I was done
