Snatch sets w/36

Well, here I go trying to put some muscle and weight on!

7:30am KB Snatch

Warm up w/26

40 2 hand swings, 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 2 sets = 4 min.
40 transfers, 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 2 sets = 4 min.
40 one hand swings, 10/10/10/10, 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 2 sets = 4 min.

Total warm up 12 min.

Work sets

#1 18 snatch transfers w/ 26, 1 min. on 1 min. rest x 2 sets = 4 min.

#2 16 snatch transfers w/ 36, 1 min. on 1.5 min. rest x 10 sets = 25 min.

Repeat #1 x 5 sets = 10 min.

Total workout 50 min..

Snatching the 36 I found myself being pulled forward by the weight, so I had to really concentrate on centering the force, both on the way up and down.

I ended the workout with repeating set #1 because I have a hard time (mentally) training less than 45 min. I know I need to get over it! (video to be posted later today)

Great job on the snatches. Keep up the good work!

Fine. I am going to keep a food log online. An honest one. Prepare to be shocked. Starting with what I remember from yesterday.

Tracy said...

rob, My workout this morning was strong, but then I redid a set for the video, tough!

Thanks, Tracy

Tracy said...

Royce, I dare you!! Nothing shocks me, I'm well aware how most people eat.

Honesty only matters to you, remember that.

Royce said...

I know honesty only matters to me. I have tried to keep a food log before and I would never count the "snacks". Can't do that and progress. LOL

Puttin on muscle, man do I envy that. I'm going to quite pussyfooting around about my goals and get to 180 then add muscle.

Nice snatch set, the heavier bells do toss you around. you were still moving fast though!
