22 kg snatch , 36 kg belt squats
Third hard training day in a row I realized today as I saddled up to do some snatches. My light recovery walk has turned into a weighted hike and that's more than cool but it's a workout in it's own right now and that has an impact on monday's training
No worries but I could tell I didn't have a full rest and recovery day yesterday. Surprisingly things went very strongly today.
16 kg x 5/5 x 3 one arm swing warmup
16 kg x 5/5 x 2 snatch
20 kg 5/5
22 kg x 6/6
x 8/8 x 2 rounds
x 6/6 x 2 rounds
5292 lbs work
overhead position was much better and easier and the groove has settle back in again. I don't have to think so much on each rep, just do as I've been doing. I hate having to problem solve and try to train at the same time. Lower back felt perfect and no excess strain on any muscle or joint for a change. Nice :)
cardio was good to and the bell felt light. 22 is just a touch away from 24 and it's good to know I can do this workload with it.Need to get the volume up now that the groove has returned
For 20 kg : 150 total reps
22 kg : 130
24 kg : 110-120
at least for now :)
36 kg x 35 reps x 3 sets
this felt deeper than it looks on video but the bell is moving at least one foot and my knees are going forward well.I did these non lockout and it's a hellacious quad burn, just what I want. 35 reps is no joke.
rear leg elevated split squats
12 kg x 15/15 x 2
didn't like these very much . back to regular flat floor lunges
3 x 50 feet ACK out of gas! done dun de dun dun.
DONE. those squats kicked my ass
another good one in the books.
