You never know when you are going to have a good workout and when you are just going to hang in and survive to train another day. And usually, I have found, that the days I do everything "right" are the hardest ones.
I got plenty of sleep yesterday, was hydrated, well fed, relaxed, got a full stretchout, etc. etc. etc. and was fine when I got up but sometime mid morning felt like I had been run over by a truck again! Like the barometric pressure dropped into the abyss. No such like. I was just run over by some severe ass DOMS from all the heavy bells I've been playing with.
I also have been trying to figure out where to put the health snatches and the presses as my shoulders can only take so much. So I decided to do just the health snatches today first. Not a good idea. TOO much of the press motion, even in the negative with little resistance doesn't seem to like my shoulders so I switched to ballistic snatches after five sets and these felt better, although rough. Haven't done many lately
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
20 kg x 9/9
x 10/10 x 3
better but still achy and sore. and I haven't done anything. Oh well,just chalk this one up to practice.
20 kg x 1/1
24 kg x 1/1 x 5
Felt guilty about doing so little so I tried some presses and they went great! Actually warmed up and they were more speed presses than anything. Excellent!
But I didn't want to tempt fate anymore than I had so I called it
40 kg x 20 x 4 sets
ack. just tired.
4 sets of 10
