32 kg StrengthMatters swing test accomplished! 200 reps/ 10 minutes

This is just freaking awesome.  Both Glenn and I, following the same training program, accomplished the swing test today with no issues. We were on track to do another 20 minute 24 kg set but decided we might as well go ahead and test this now, in case it wasn't really working and our plan wouldn't translate.
But it was and it did.

LONG day yesterday and not the best sleep. Worked hard at not thinking about this all morning. Was almost successful.
I anticipated that the test would be much like the last 5 minutes of a 20 minute 24 kg workout and it was just about that.
The first five minutes were not bad and the last five were pretty much as miserable as the 20 minute workout.
Grip was fine the whole time, as was the lower back
I did however slip into double breathing around the five minute mark; moving that much weight that fast takes a lot of oxygen but my back was fine. I just sound like a wounded rhino :)
