Max Vo2 Snatch training, with the Reifkinds!

3 minutes in or so

10 minutes in, halfway. My feet started to feel numb, you can see me wiggling them!

The last 2 minutes. I lost count, and without my glasses I couldn't see the clock clearly, lol.

After my Saturday Max Vo2 snatch workout w/16kg, (the same workout that Mark did in this video), I realized that I wanted to do this workout twice a week, once with the 16kg, and one with the 12kg.

So when Mark mentioned over the weekend that this would be his Monday workout, I quickly jumped on the chance to train with him. I knew the energy would be awesome, and I knew he would totally dig it! I don't know why he resists so much, he didn't even want to tape it! I practically forced him to, and I could tell he was glad! I can't wait to do it with him again, next week. We both agreed that we could've gone another 5 min., (10 sets).

12:20 Misc. warm up for 10 min.

12:30 KB Max Vo2

15 sec on, 15 sec. rest
("I go, you go", style)w/12kg

8 reps per side x 40 sets, 20 L, 20 R = 20 min. 320 snatches

2 hand swings

16kg, 1 min. on 1 min. rest

alternated w/
20 kg, 1 min. on 1 min. rest

10 sets, (5 each) = 20 min.

bottoms up swings, 10/10/10/10, 2 min. on 1 min. rest x 2 sets = 5 min.

Total workout 55 min.

The fact that I could still count all of my reps at the end of 20 min., shows that I still had alot more in me, (I wasn't out of breath). Next time we will increase the number of sets, and I'll start out with 9 reps per 15 sec. as I often found myself completeing 8 reps in about 12-13 sec., and then I'll take the option of backing down to 8.

Man that had to be kick ass. Barb's trained with me only a few times but man is it freakin COOL when she does.

Mark Reifkind said...

I'll tell you why. I was scared you were going to kick my ass and make me look bad, lol.
the swing queen indeed.
I was getting seriously pysched the last half hour before too. didnt hurt as much as I had thought.

Mark Reifkind said...

and, you know I get cranky when I'm getting ready to compete and thats what this felt like.

Zorbs said...

I wish my hubby would work out with me like this.

fawn said...

I love it when Aaron and I get to train together... I always make him pick the workout.

Tracy Reifkind said...

Zorbs & Fawn,

Working out with hubby was fun mainly because we were training similtaneously! I usually don't like it, because I have a hard time when he "coaches" me!

I know, I know, people pay him good money to coach them, and I can handle a correction here, a correction there, but otherwise, it's no coincidence that I train alone!

Boy, I'm going to get in trouble for that one, LOL!!!!

Mark Reifkind said...

oh yes you are.....

Aaron Friday said...

Tracy, keep doing it like this and there will be no coaching. "Ahem, it's your turn to snatch."

fawn said...

I hear you on the coaching, Tracy. Aaron has a talent for movement, so I don't have to say much to him... however, when I wanted him to teach me Taiji... I remember feeling a certain amount of frustration. I don't really practice Taiji anymore.

Kori Bliffert, NASM-CPT said...

I am with you Tracy and Fawn. BJ is a terrific trainer and I get all of his expertise for free, but sometimes it is hard to here what I am doing wrong/could be improved from my husband. I do listen, I just don't let him know! :)

Royce said...

Yup gotta chime in, Barb will not train with me most of the time bacause she doesn't like my "advice".

Tracy Reifkind said...

Thanks for giving me some validation, but it's not helping my cause!

I'm still in trouble,lol.

Mark Reifkind said...

And they say it's the MEN who have the egos,lol. I'm surprised at the womens' attitude to tell you the truth.I don't care at all where good information comes to me from, just that it does. So I will take good advice from a total beginner if I see how I can benefit and or learn from it.
"out of the mouths of babes,eh", pun intended.
That's why I had no problem accepting that Tracy had developed a program that was far better than I ever could for fat loss,especially for women.Brilliance is brilliance and to ignore it is just plain silly to me.No matter what direction it comes from.
For you guys not to get coaching and the advantage of experienced eyes from loved ones who would like nothing better than to help you succeed is the height of folly, imho.

Tracy Reifkind said...

Ladies, He doesn't get it does he??

Good point, but, like women, it's a little more complicated!

Mark Reifkind said...

oh I get it, that is the point, lol.

Royce said...

Rif, amen bro! I get it too. If ANY person can improve my practice it doesn't matter who they are!! Wife, friend, enemy, companion.........

Christine said...

That's so cute and at the same time you two are a scary couple. ;)

Christine said...

And to chime in on the argument, I didn't like training with my husband (when I was married) because I didn't take instruction well from him.
