40 kg One Arm Swings 10 x 10/10, 24 kg snatch, hack squat, parallel bar pushup, rear laterals



Really great training today. Strong and feeling fit. Bell moved as well as ever and endurance was better than ever too.
Wore my new XOskin compression shorts and they really felt great. Just enough support to make me feel some hoop tension in the hips and upper legs but not tight at all. Perfect.Especially as it heats up. I want to wear them for rucking too so I ordered another pair.

A gear whore I am :) A minimalist one  but one nonetheless. I love stuff like this; functional on multi levels, easy to clean, able to use over and over again and takes the place of more than a few other pieces ( the minimalist aspect).

Switching back to swing Vo2 on Wednesdays seemed to really help this day. Grease the groove if you will. And this workout, 10 sets of 10/10 is horrible but necessary. It's just enough 'overwork" ( reps 8,9 and 10) to make me suffer a bit but not enough to go on too much into glycolytic toxicity.

We we cycle these
wk 1 40 kg 10 x 10/10 - 200 reps 17,600 lbs
wk 2 44 kg 10 x 8/8-  160 reps  15 520 lbs
wk 3 48 kg 13 x 6/6- 156 reps 16, 536 lbs
wk 4 52 kg 10 sets of  5/5 100 reps 11,500 lbs

I like how this looks. and swing vo2 on Wednesdays

One arm swings
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5
28 kg x 4/4
32 kg x 4/4
40 kg x 10/10 x 10 sets
200 reps
17,600 lbs

Very strong and powerful. Best bell height ever. Wind was very strong and form didn't fall off almost at all, just the last 2 reps on the last two sets if at all
This workout is my base for swing training; the more weight I can use more often the better everything else will be. BUT I have to not use to too much or it will overtrain me fast, and my power will go down, not up.
I think this configuration is good for now.

Snatch
16 kg x 5/5
20 lg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5 x 2

these were hard after the swings  but a small amount was perfect. form was very solid.

Hacks
85 x 8
115 x 8
135 x 6
145 x 6

solid but not easy. Legs were tight at start :)

Pushups
bw x 12
32 lbs x 12 x 3

strongest in forever . every rep chest touched bars too.Another crucial exercise and workload

Rear laterals
3 sets of 12 with 20 lbs

Hot ruck

 Tried out the XO Skin loose t shirt. I hesitated because it's black and today was a very warm day ( close to 80) but then I realized it was the perfect time to test it's wicking and cooling properties. It worked way better than expected,

Not only was I not hot but I sweated far less than usual. Very nice.And no chafing at all.
Ruck was strong. legs felt good after the first 30 minutes. As it's been all my endurance life it takes me at least 30 minutes to get my lungs open and my head clear. Then, literally it's a whole new game

Same thing today. the second 30 minutes was way easier

24 kg speed swings 12 min, walking lunges, parallel pushups,side laterals

Back to speed swing work today and man it is SO different than snatch vo2! That damn bell is way heavy compared to the 16! But the groove seems much more suited to my heavy day and this will improve that, and that has shown to work. I can keep doing snatches,slower and controlled on saturdays too

24 kg speed swings
15:15
12 min
240 reps
12,720 lbs work ( and the work load is way higher, too)

hard but not that bad. Can definitely feel that it's much harder "work" than the lighter snatches; more strength than speed oriented.

Military Press PR 150 x 5 x 2, 2 x 1, 24 kg squat cleans, floor pushup, rear delts crawls



Man this was a tough one. Mainly cause I was more than just a little sore in the hands, fingers, forearms and shoulders from Mike Castro's and my kettlebell partner passing session yesterday. I didn't do much but I didn't NEED to do anything. After 100 one arms with the 52 kg my arms needed rest, not more kb anything!

Got plenty of bodymaintenance in today but I was still pretty sore at the start of the workout and was wanting to take 150 out for a ride. Had no idea how it would go.

It ended up ok but i could have done better fresh.

Military press
stick x 5
bar x 5
65 x 5
85 x 3
105 x 2
125 x 2
140 x 1
150 x 2 x 3 sets
       x 1 x 2 sets
       x 2 x 2 sets

the two missed doubles were because my biceps tendon was not behaving and I didn't push it. Once it got the set the reps weren't that bad and was actually thinking of threes but definitely not the day. this was pushing things enough
Plus my training partner was out and this was tough solo, mentally. But just another challenge to overcome.
I've always said, if you can't train alone you can't train at all

end of day this is 94 % of my old single 160 lbs. very happy with that and the good one's moved very well

Squat cleans
was going to skip this and do belt squats as my arms were cooked but I really love this move so I went lighter instead. great idea. My new favorite movement for sure
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 3 x 5 sets
easy and didn't push my arms/shoulders. great stretch in the bottom of the squat for the legs too

Floor pushups
2 sets of 35
1 set of 30

better than last week

Rear laterals
3 sets of 15 with 20 lbs
strong this is such a key move for shoulder strength balance

crawls

Fast as hell ruck

Started off just a bit tight this morning but I quickly warmed up and was able to keep a really decent pace for the whole 12 laps

I didn't time any laps but in my mind I was thinking going for a fast overall time and I got it; one hour and fifty minutes.

If that's not the record it's close.
And that includes 11 isosquats and a 3 min conversation with my friend Jimmy and his dog Lucy, who are regulars at the park Sunday mornings
It felt like I held 7:45's for most of the laps very solid

No issues at all from yesterday's heavy ass swings!

52 kg One Arm Swings 10 x 5/5,20 kg snatches 4 x 10/10, hacks, weighted pushups, side laterals



This went really really well. Felt stronger than ever on these and NO grip issues with my left hand like the last time with this bell. I think it's a PR total as well too lazy to  look it up.

Bell height and power were more than expected too although I didn't feel like doing transfers were good right to left so I just didn't do them at all except for the last two sets and then only left to right. It went fine.
My head was solid too and focus on concentration were excellent for a change.

That fat handle is something else though( almost 8 inches diameter!)

these were easy and hard at the same time. easy as weight felt light and overhead felt good but hard cause I was damn tired by then!

Good Ruck



Steady and strong today. Not much motivation but thursdays at 1 pm, when I've been up since 3:30 and it's the end of the training week is always hard. Hot today too but I wore the XOSkin shirt and even though it seemed kind of thick for the hotter weather it really absorbed the sweat and kept me cool.
not as much sweat on the pack, either
 We'll see how my summer hot weather training goes this season

Snatch Vo2 15 min, walking lunges, parallel pushups, rear laterals



Rare footage of me doing max v2 snatches! Glenn is out and Tracy just happened to walk in at the end.  Wow, now that's a diaphragm! No one can accuse me of not belly breathing. Not happy with the look but what can I do? Still fit in my 32 waist pants so there ya go.

Overall happy with the overhead position and my condition for this session, Not that hard at all and I found it easier to actually try to go faster than slower. Just keep the bell moving. Heartrate well over 170 at the end.

Military Press 145 x 8 x 3 PR,28 kg KB squat cleans, floor pushup ( pr) ,crawls, side laterals



I was tired today but strong! Very strange. Felt like I had no gas but then, things went! Weird indeed. I started out worrying whether I was actually going to be able to do triples and had mentally accepted doubles as ok but then the first set went for three, then the next ( which is the above video, which I took early cause I didn't expect to be able to get another! Only to end up with eight!

Each set felt better.took forever to warm up but even more, it took forever for my body to truly activate as one, as a whole; with maximum tension.

Those who don't understand why we teach max tension exercises on sub max weights don't know or accept the reality of how much strength is a skill. And you can't practice that skill with max weights. won't work.

Also, my grip! Anytime I lost total crush power on the barbell the rep wasn't as good or stalled out a bit. Re gripping and re torqueing the shit out of the bar was key!

I still have to re work the timing between when I set the hands and getting under the bar, taking the air and walking out. Very different than my old technique, without the emphasis on torque.

Also, I can't LOSE that torque as I'm setting up or the first rep is MUCH harder.

So much more to learn and perfect but this weight got crushed!

First time ever in work sets with over 140.

Didn't try to drop under so much this time but instead drop down as soon as I solidified the clean
worked well

48 kg One arm swings, 10 x 6/6, 20 kg snatches 4 x 10/10, hacks, weighted pushups, rear laterals



First time back with the Beast in six weeks since the test and I could tell. The 40 kg warmup actually felt strong but as soon as I skipped to the 48 it was like " uh oh" better dig in! It warmed up well but the groove was still "thoughtful" and not automatic like it was  two months ago.
It'll be back soon

Next week is the 52 kg :)

The cycle will be
wk 1 40 kg
wk 2 44 kg
wk 3 48 kg
wk 4 52 kg

reps will be between 5/5 and 8/8, the sweet zone ;)

I think we actually will need to get a 56 kg bell :)

Snatches


decided to go lighter and see if I could still do tens. No problem . the damn bell just feels so light after the 48 :)
Overhead position is very encouraging.even the right side, cardio is solid although technique, timing, and groove need lots of reps and time in

Strong and loose ruck



Inspired by Rob Blair and his epic Marathon DesSables this last week I had a great attitude going into this ruck. Strong strong legs are the key and I'm feeling back to my old self again. Man, this jetlag took it's time wearing off!

Cool and crisp out too, just like I like it. I can't believe Rob and George and running in 129 degree heat for the last two day, two. that's just insane on so many levels and it made my self talk very strong as it really put my little walk into perspective

Snatch Vo2 17 min, walking lunges,parallel bar pushups, side laterals



Haven't gone this long in the snatch vo2 in many years. Hard to imagine I did 80 sets of 8 in this almost ten years ago! I don't want to go that far again but I built up to it the same way I'll be building up this time 2-3 steps forwards, 1-2 steps back. Rinse and repeat

Had a hard time getting my groove right away as this speed and the lighter bell weight can let me do virtually any technique but I want to keep a decent hinge and my " ba boom" technique so as to transfer to my 24 kg snatch

Once I got past 5 minutes things settled down and my groove appeared
Overhead position was decent right from the start with NO biceps pain or impingement
Heartate was up to 160+ pretty quickly too.
Tried to double breath on this but couldn't figure it out at this pace yet.
No worries

Snatch V o2

238 snatches

Walking lunges

Military Press 135x 8x 3,32 kg squat cleans, floor pushups, crawls,rear laterals



Ah it's good to feel strong and recovered again! Finally I've got up from this trip.
This weight felt very very controlled and strong. Body parts all together and nothing yelling at me at all.
Wearing the XOSkin shirt was nice. Tight and supportive if not a little tight in the neck for me when pressing. A slight v might be better.It was hot in the gym today and the shirt definitely helped with that. We'll see how long it can go before it starts to smell :) That's it's thing, anti microbial and thermal control. Wicks away sweat, keeps you cool or warm and doesn't smell.

Military press
stick x 5
bar x 5
65 x 5
85 x 4
105 x 3
120 x 2
135 x 3 x 8 sets
every set was strong AS LONG AS I CRUSHED THE SHIT OUT OF THE BAR. Any rep I lost the crush grip was not as strong or solid. Set the grip, then torque it all as hard as possible THEN get under the bar and hold that tightness! Making all the difference for my press
Weight felt light in my hands and shoulder ROM is good and increasing still

Squat cleans


the 32 gave me a little trouble holding it in the rack but it's a PR! Either have to separate arms or start with the left; it's definitely weaker in the shoulder there.also trying to jump under it early doesn't work as well as the bell gets out in front. Still great overall and leg work. Love to feel that stretch reflex in and out of the bottom. I knew it felt good when I saw others do it!

Squat cleans

Loose light and strong ruck

This was very surprising! Legs felt loose, light but strong right out of the gate and stayed that way the entire time. Last week I thought I would  have to ease back into the full 12 laps one lap extra at at a time but I got all 12 today no problem and even got a timed lap in, too!

SO nice when the body cooperates

12th lap= 7:20 !!! not bad at all

Got to try out a new base layer from XOskin products and it felt great! No chafing at all, wicked the sweat away easily and kept me cool and warm at the same time if that makes any sense. It was cool this morning but I heat up so quickly and this worked perfect. Will make a great underlayer too I'm sure. Can't wait to try the compression shorts for heavy swings and rucking as well.

Snatch Vo2 15 min, walking lunges,parallel pushups, rear laterals



This was harder than expected. Not physically but energetically. I'm still tired from the trip or something. Tired isn't the right word, 'flat' is closer but I'm definitely not energetic. Strength is fine just not particularly motivated; as much as I hate to admit that.

Reaching that goal I've been chasing for three years seemed to have let some of the air out of my tires. I didn't expect this. But I can see the tide turning already, I just need to get more sets and reps back in the tank and I'll re gain momentum.

Snatch vo2

30 sets
16 kg x 7 reps

 Not hard but awkward. Didn't feel fluid or natural at first five minutes Actually once I got past ten the groove settled in but then i got tired!

15 min is still better than last week. Overhead position felt good. We'll see how biceps tendon is tomorrow but right now it's good and not talking to me

Walking lunges

125 lb Military press, squat cleans,floor pushups,crawls, side laterals



This went well, AFTER the first four sets. Man it felt like I hadn't had a bar in my hands for years. Had a hard time setting my grip tight enough. When I finally did it went much better but it took a long time to get things to link up. Man when we say strength is a skill that's no joke. LOTS of moving parts to get everyone to play together. Strongly.

As well as proprioception. Remembering the 'feel' of everything working together is a key component of strength. Go away from it for awhile and it's very easy to lose 'touch' with your own body.
Just as their is good proprioception and kinesthetic awareness, so their is bad body awareness :(

Military press
stick x 5 x 2

85 x 3 ( it felt HEAVY, lol~)

Squat cleans


SO EXCITED that these felt as good as they did. I went in thinking I would only be able to do them once every other week but I know they can now take the place of the belt squats. Plus, they include the clean so I don't need to do another workout just to get that in.

This means I can stay with barbell press every week and do the squat cleans everyweek as well. SO Much to explore and improve with this lift, including timing, but that's great! and this was also some serious lung work too! good news is that the position felt great, the squat even better and a nice stretchy bottom position helped.

I can go deeper but nice and elastic is the main thing

A day late on the report but it was a good ruck. I knew I had to take it easy coming back, and I was right. I had thought 1.5 hours would be about right and it was about 10 minute too much, lol.
Eight laps was good, the last one was actually tough! Shit, take ONE little down week, not even OFF, and  you lose so much condition. Ack

SO I'm glad I took it slowly

50 lbs ruck
9 laps
1.5 hours
8 iso squats

BW 164.3
BF 11.4
W 56.8

I guess not being able to really train legs for enduance for over 20 years took a toll. It'll be awhile before the conditioning really sticks

40kg One Arm Swings, 15 lb CB swipes, 16-24 pyr snatch,bar hack squats, weighted pushups, rear laterals



Today went well, despite the crick in my neck, then my t spine, then my neck again on the other not really "clearing".Nothing scary just literally, a "pain in the neck". Oh and som QL tightness as well. Haven't felt that in ages
Brought back memories of the bad old days of constantly being tweaked, needing/wanting to work on it to clear it and not having it come all the way out.
Just irritating. Too much flexion and not enough body maintenance gets me everything. I actually was starting to think I was immune but this is a very good lesson that I am not. Indeed will never be. A very very gentle lesson too, thank you very much

Everything felt slightly foreign , even too stiff until enough sets had passed to really warm me up and re set my groove.

One arm Swings
16 kg x 5/5 x 2
20 kg  x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5
28 kg x 5/5
32 kg x 5/5
40 kg x 5/5 x 10 sets

good height, good float and virtually no cardio stress. Think I'll have to go up to 7's or 8's. I think I can still keep high power up on that many with not much more CV stress

Swipes


thought this might be  a good addition haven't done these in years and they felt perfectly natural right out of the box.
Five sets of 10 with 2 15's no problem

Snatches
Didn't think I'd do these but I wanted to see
16 kg x 5/5
20 kg x 5/5
24 kg x 5/5 x 3

felt good. overhead no problem

Weighted pushups parallel bars
BW x 10
32 lbs x 10 x 3 sets

easy

Rear laterals
3 sets of 12 with 15's

BW 163.4
BF 11.9
W 56.7

Im sure my weight will rise in accordance with my loading. No worries now
