OK, after a not so good showing the other day, todays training totally made up for it.
After moving stuff (3 trailer loads...I have no idea where we got so much crap) I wasn't too sure how this session would go.
I set my goals high, I know what I needed to, and this time I wasn't going to let that little timer get the best of me.
So, with the GymBoss timer set at 5 seconds, after a quick round of joint mobility, I set out on snatch set.
It was a rough set, My form broke a little at the end just because my forearms were screaming at me.
I performed the usual one hand switch at 78 reps (right hand), a little past half through the set.
I ended with 68 reps on the left hand. Not too shabby.
If you do the math this set was...
I was pretty pumped, unfortunately so were my forearms.
After prying my hands back open and I moved on the the next movement.
I haven't clean and jerks in a while, and I needed a press for today so I thought, why not.
Usinga 24kg bell I banded out the following.
10/10, 5/5, 7/7, 6/6, 8/8
It was tough, I had a had time gripping the bell and "getting the bell where I wanted it" on the down swing.
The Jerks were strong and easier than with the 16 kg I have been using. It seemed easier to "push myself under", but I haven't used the 24kg for a timed set yet...so we'll see how it goes.
Finished with some 2 arms swings, again with the 24kg, 3 quick set of 20,15,15
I spent about 10 minutes or so fooling around on the pull up bar with front and back lever stuff. I managed to get one leg straight on a front lever for about 2 seconds.
Pretty happy with that session, hard and fun all in one.
