Back off workout.
( 32 kg bottoms up cleans. Not bad but not perfect. Got them into position but didn't hold them. BUT it's 32 kg and I haven't even tried this in over a year and half! Felt strong too)
Both Glenn and I have wondered when the escalator ride to more strength and increased work capacity would end and we got our answer today. Today. :))
Nothing bad happened but we were both beat. After Saturday's stellar workout ( in both workload and energy) we both kind of crashed a bit and came into today's workout just a bit tuckered. Perfect. We were waiting for a sign we should back down and today was it.
Still got in a great workout ( and the above B/u cleans are recent bests) but we both knew it was time to start over a bit and ramp back up from the bottom
Full Rifga stretchout upper and lower body. much needed.
16 kg x 5x5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 8/8 x 8 sets
this was not easy,even though it should have been. smooth strong and fluid but it was work. groove and arc was very solid though.
Bottoms up cleans
18 kg x 3/3
22 kg x 3/3
24 kg x 2/2
28 kg x 2/2
32 kg x 2/2
strange day to go for this but I knew I could make it. Will hold these solid very soon.
32 kg x 15 x 4 sets
not bad but nothing special
P bars 1 x 5
Floor pushups 3 x 5!!! yes first full floor pushups in forever!
have to get my head up more. my old gymnastics habit are STILL in there! but it was awesome to regain this strength and pattern after all this time!
Sisu! Never Quit! The only way you won't get what you want is if you quit trying!
