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.
Snatch V o2
Not bad at all :)
4 sets of 40 steps
yeow! feel the quad burn. shorter steps give me better knee forward translation and the lower quad and ankle dorsi flexion I want from this
Lungs ok and finally feeling NO jetlag. took long enough!
Parallel bar pushups
3 sets of 30 - strongly
this is back
3 sets of 12 with 15.
solid here too
feel lean and hard
ruck up tomorrow
