I'm loving the Long Cycle Clean & Jerk (LCCJ)
After warming up I was able to pull off a PR.
Well to be honest it's more of a baseline, I have never tried to go this long and I learning a big part of performing sets for time is just suckin' it up.
One problem I'm having with the LCCJ is the size of the bells and the stance I have to take due to being short and having stubby legs.
It forces me to take a wider stance, which is fine for the Clean, but feels weird when performing the Jerk. It something I'll have to get used to, stepping in and out from wide to narrow and back again will be too inefficient.
So, I'll deal.
Here's the session in nutshell:
LCCJ 2 16kg
5RPM, 5 minutes = 25 reps.
One arm swings 16kg
30/30 x 2 sets
20/20 x 3 sets
I wanted 30 on all the sets of swings, that'll be the goal next time 5 sets comes up.
The Rack killed me again, this will take some time to get used too. I learning (slowly) to allow my body to support the bells rather than me actively holding them. This makes it a little less "painfull" and is a skill all in itself.
Time to go watch some fights and eat some awesome Bison Meatloaf. Yum!
