Surprisingly hard workout but not for the obvious reasons. Lower back ( left side) got a bit tight halfway through the set, I'm sure from too much pistol practice these last few days. No biggie and it didn't freak me at all I just made the work harder.
It was also interesting that the alternating of snatch vo2 with swing work does not make the swing day easier; if anything it makes it harder. We lose a week of more specific conditioning and I think speed swing works makes snatch vo2 workouts easier but not vice versa
Glenn concurred so I think it's back to just speed swing work on wednesdays. the overhead snatch work as nice but not essential. I also want to try to go back to kb presses again. That would be awesome.
Otherwise the work load was ok. Started double breathing at 11 minutes or so as my back tightened up.
The start was easy; weight felt like and speed good. The middle section was tough but then I just put my head down and when I looked up it was just a minute to go! Doing this weekly will help find all these rhythms faster too.
34 sets of 10 / 30 seconds
18,020 lbs ( 9 tons)
4 laps of 40 steps
not bad mostly unbroken
shoulders and upper back are tired. didn't push this at all
24 kg x 8/8 x 3 sets
actually this work out on this day. It needed to find a home. After all those sets and reps a few heavier sets if easier to do.
ok ruck it tomorrow!
