OS, I was really excited to get back to training and, again, start to push my numbers higher.
I was excited until I actually started training.
Nothing felt right. Nothing.
No groove for for any of the moves.
You know those days?
Heres what I ended up doing:
I messed around with DBL 16kg combo of swings -> "gun slingers" -> LCCJ
Trying to get used to the "ultra wide stance" I have to take due to my body proportions when using the competition size bells.
2 16kg Kettlebells
4 sets @ 20, 15, 12, 10
These were tough, I didn't use the GymBoss for pacing, I just moved at a comfortable clip.
I was very uncomfortable overhead and had a hard time finding my hips when "dropping" the bells back to he rack.
3 sets of 15 @ 16kg
After the Jerk debacle I thought it best to just work on technique. With my snatches I wanted to focus on getting the bell from one side of my hand to the other with no catch on my callouses.
These went really well.
2 sets of 30 with a 16kg Kettlebell
Nothing special. I felt a lot of discomfort in my bicep tendon. A sign I'm probably pulling with my arm too much and out sync with the bells rhythm.
I attribute this bad session to getting old. I turned 32 last Friday, apparently your body falls apart and you can't coordinate these highly technical kettlebell movements. That was sarcasm, BTW.
So, what do I do?
The only thing I can, brush it off and continue to push forward. You're going to have bad days.
It's what you do after that, that makes the difference.
