22 kg snatches, split squats, crawls and a Big Bell arrives
I crashed a bit from my last client and just got through the workout but there was no 'umph'. Then I realized I was feeling a bit of adrenaline let down from the weekend as well. No worries, this was just building more base, getting it done.
Glenn is out of town so I was solo today too.
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
22 kg x 5/5 x 11 sets
5500 lbs work
thought about going for 130-140 reps but my head just wasn't into it and I decided not to push it
Split squats ( bw)
1 x 13, 10, 8, 6, 6
did these much slower than last week, emphasizing the bottom position more and longer and locked out at the top and this resulted in lower reps. No problem just a different type of stimulation
Backward- forward crawls
4 laps of 30 feet backward followed by the same forward
these kicked my ass as usual. Kind of 'repped out' after this weekend and I just let it go at four laps.
4 sets of 15-30 seconds
these are getting better and easier all the time
took my nap only to be woken up by the UPS guy with our 68 kg Monster bell that is pictured above. Just getting it out of the package was a task nevermind duckwalking it the 30 feet into the gym,lol.I had to actually 'deadlift' the thing instead of just picking it up. Not light at all .
But what a beauty. Joe will probably swing it one arm but I'll settle for two hand swings and be very happy if it doesn't kill me
time to eat up
next to the 52 and 48 kg bells
