Monday, 16kg snatches
I knew last week that I was ready to get a base line 16kg snatch workout, my goal is to snatch the 16kg for 5 min at 12 weeks post op, that puts me at the week of 02/29. Wow, only 3 weeks away! Oh well, it's just a baseline.
5:30am Bikram yoga
6:00pm 1 hour walk
40 2 hand swings w/12kg, 1 min work, 1 min rest x 5 sets = 10 min.
swing, snatch 6 R, 6 L, 6 R, 6 L w/12kg, (12 reps per side before trans.), 2 min work,
1 min rest x 2 sets repeated before alternating with the next work set.
I realized this pace was too slow, so I finished the workout with the same combination, only I upped the reps to 8 swing/snatches before switching....video demos this set.)
8/8 snatch w/16kg, 1 min work,
1 min rest, 1
I used, for the first time, a competion sized 16kg with smaller handle, and the same size as the DD 32kg....I liked it! And my hand didn't get torn up...granted I didn't do high reps, or fast reps.
I started with the first work set and finished with it (#1), alternating the 8/8 snatch w/16kg (#2) in between. 30 min. total
40 2 hand swings w/16kg
I decided to clean up my 2 hand swing form, the video demos about 10 reps of the 40 rep set before the battery died!
Snatching the 16kg again is good,(and fun!). Life is good, (and fun!).
