Lateral swing, Squat combos

11:30 KB

My shoulder blade is pretty screwed up so I'm limited to mostly one hand swings. Didn't want to go heavy at all just needed to train smart and heal. Here's what I did:

Warm up sets

40 2 hand swings w/26 1 min. on 1 min rest x 3 sets
10 L, 10 R x 2 (40reps total) 1 hand swings w/26 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 3 sets
Total warm up 12 min.

Work sets

10 L, 10 R one hand swings x 3 (60 reps total) 1.5 min. on 1 min. rest

4, 1 one hand swing, 1 clean, squat, 1 lateral swing L, repeat R, 1 .0 min on 1 min. rest (see 1st part of video)

1 swing, clean squat, lateral trans. x 8, 1 min. on 1 min. rest (see last part of video)

I alterneted these 3 sets x 6 = 39.0 min total

Total WO time 51.0 min

Food Journal

O.K. food journaling on my blog once a week is not going to work for me. Even though I write it down ( I try to keep a running total throughout the day) everyday on paper there's something about re-writing it again. It gives me an opportunity to reflect and re-evaluate.

Alot of times going over it a second time I think about what I was feeling during the day not just the weights and measurements of food. I'm reminded of my mood, maybe struggles or victories and it prepares me for the next day.

I've noticed that I've forgotten some of those details and I didn't realize that I still needed that second reminder. So here's the last few days:

Awesome. That sucks about your shoulder. Nice to see you back in Bikram's.

Hey Franz, I loved your guys' video for Revolution! Nice to see some new pics of Yoanna too!

Hopefully I learned my lesson about my shoulder! I skipped vinyasa this morning, and I'll go to Bikram tonight.
