This is the fifth time I've done this 20 minute workout and while it never gets "easy" this one was just hard. Not in a 'bad' hard, just in a 'lot of work to do' hard.
The key point of this style of power training is that as the weights feel lighter and your conditioning gets better you are supposed to push harder, swing faster, accelerate the weight on the ascent and descent stronger
So it never ever changes, even as you get fitter ,lol
The key thing to see change in your mind strength. Today was good. Less inner chat and my mantra of "breathe, don't think, set up, go" worked pretty well
Didn't see the clock til 10 minutes in and was just a wee but disheartened to think I had to repeat what I had just done
Shut up. Don't think.
Back to work
and then it was done. power output was good but not great and wind was too. didn't get into double breathing til after 15 minutes. Back got a little tight around 11-12 minutes but changed teshnik a bit and used my legs more and brought my head up a bit. It helped.
Recovery after was solid. My main focus was not max power but maintaining the best power I could for such a long duration. Definitely a success
