Swing Vo2 45 sets/10, walking lunges, parallel bar pushups, leopard crawls

Nice treat today to start a bit early and I was feeling ready to go. Speed Vo2, as opposed to snatch Vo2 is a very different animal. Definitely not as scary for me, as I've hurt myself snatching quite bit ( lower back and biceps) where I have not swinging.

So it's easier to go harder ; and it's easier cardiovascularly, than snatch Vo 2, but it's damn tough to try to continually push that bell down fast enough to get 10 reps in fifteen seconds AND swing the bell high enough.

Very interesting work, for sure. Very muscular not just ballistic. As KJ said, more tension in the swing than the snatch.
I kept my head up again and it's definitely sinking in. Its a stronger, better position I know now no doubt. Loads the hips better as well as creating a better, and strong lumbar curve.
And trying to keep that level of speed and power up over 20+ minutes is not easy at all and that's what I like the best :)
