Clean press snatch squat

Thursdays are the one workout that can go all "willy nilly". I have too much freedom in my schedule on this day and I find myself putting it off and not sticking to a regular time. At that point I force myself to go into the gym, no plan, as usual, but I find it hard to find a groove the later it gets in the day.

So I can't even organize my sets and reps, because quite simply, I kept changing the combinations, the times, the reps, even the movements. But basically the one set that was consistent was the following;

clean press, snatch, neg press, hold rack position, squat, 2 min sets 6 combinations on L, and then R, 1 min. rest (video demos 1/2 of this set)
I did at least 10 of these sets.

On the positive side, this old body loves squatting in the afternoon! Those 6:00am squats are hhhhard! Even though I was using a light weight, (I did do a few sets with the 16kg)the last squats in the last sets, I had to use both hands to hold the bell up near my shoulder!

I trained for at least 60 minutes, I didn't even keep track of time. But that's one of the great things about KB's......train hard enough and put in your time!

Tomorrow, the beach, I think my tan is fading!

Life is great.

That combo look brutal. snatch then squat by itself is hard. Nice one.

Royce, I wish I was strong enough to hold overhead,(during the squat) that's next. I probably neeed to start doing TGU's and windmill though!

Hi Tracy,
I've been inspired to start lifting kettlebells and was wondering if you could recommend a good way to learn? I'm ready to lose the 15 extra lbs. on my frame after having my baby 3 months ago! Any advice or suggestions you could give would be greatly appreciated!

I'll look forward to hearing from you!
