40 kg One arm swings, 32 kg goblets, pushups, crawls

Back to the  ditch :) Haven't done a 'regular' heavy one arm swing workout in awhile it seems and this was  just what I thought it would be: heavy. 
Perfect time to get back to strong.

One arm swing
16 kg x 5/5 x3
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5
28 kg x 3/3
32 kg x 5/5
40 kg x 5/5 x 10 sets
100 reps

these took, as usual about 5 sets of warm up. But, looking at the video, it's not as bad as it felt: bell height, speed, etc.

24 kg  x 40 reps

I read where Peter Lakatos maintained his snatch test conditioning by doing 100 rep transfer sets with 32 kg. I think I will throw one set of these in after my one arms and work up to 100 reps in one set as well going up in weight after I make the reps.

Goblet squat
20 kg x 5
24 kg x 5
28 kg x 5
32 kg x 5

I thought these would be a good alternative lift/day for these but it wasn't. After all those one arms it was just as much arm work as anything, what I was trying to get away from in the kb front squat. Oh well back to the drawing board.
The question is where to put  front or goblet squats  if I am going to snatch as the main lift on wednesdays. I'll figure it out.32 kg felt heavy : in my arms :)

four laps of 60 ft. 

this was a strong day for that.Going to crawls before pushups is probably the reason.

Pushups (parallel parallettes)
6 ( feet on box)

these were good shoulders just tired

Db side delts

12 lbs x 10 x 3 sets

good session, Just me and Glenn so the pace was very fast. Tactical periodization baby!

Nice goblet squats. For an added dimension, try those on your toes.
