24 kg speed swings 15 min, 190 press attempts,walking lunges, side delts
ACK . Double Ack. This was not fun. One thing I learned for sure, that I thought last time, was that it's no good to try to attempt heavy singles after speed swing work. The funny thing is is that it's fine physically. It just messes me up mentally.
I'm too anxious to get to the meat of the workout, the main course, and the swings are getting in my way. I have to do them, and force myself to focus but it's not right. Way too much stress, So back to mondays being press day, and probably back to triple progression
It worked great for three cycles in a row and I hit 170 for 5 doubles strongly. The peak just got messed up but I threw the baby out with the bathwater again. But, this time I recognized it quickly. It was a good idea, but it's not going to work :)
But I will do the speed presses, on Wednesday instead of pushups. that won't be a problem. As Louie always said, don't mix modalities ( ie speed work with max effort work )
that being said I felt strong but a bit tired, and anxious. not psyched but more,wanting to just get it done. not the mind set for success
that also being said I really thought I would get the first attempt and then REALLY though I would get the second as my head came out of my ass as the pressure was off. I had already missed. But I was tired by then
Back to tried and true triple progress and make sure to sleep the night before the peak!
