20 kg Speed Swings 15 min, walking lunges, parallel pushups, rear laterals
Decided to drop down to the 20 kg today for speed swings for a few reasons; one, the last 3-4 weeks of them have just felt HEAVY, and that's not supposed to be that. It's dynamic effort day, speed day, where the object of the session is acceleration and power not strength,
I think the 24 was working when I was regularly using the 48 kg for 200 reps each saturday - that was 50% of the load for speed day. But now I'm not using that volume with the 48 and I'm only going that heavy 1 time per month with less volume.
20kg felt perfect. Light but not TOO light and I could throw it around- but I had to work to do so. this weight is correct for now. I could get back into the hinge faster too, more overspeed eccentrics work is also key to this day.
Generally energy was good all workout. Definitely can tell I'm taking creatine again, just that 'extra' gas in the tank
that is very very good. I was weak as shit for quite awhile it seemed.
