720 snatches, 720 swings, 60 minutes w/12kg

So, I'm in yoga this morning and the wheels start turning..... Hmmnn...how can I turn my 1000 rep workout to include snatches? Well, ideally, today would have been a heavy 2 hand swing day with sets ranging betwwen 30 sec., and 2 minutes, but I snatched heavy on Sunday, so heavy was out. The only thing left, to make it hard enough was long, long, long sets w/12kg. Here's what I did,

Warm up

10 swing, snatch, transfers, 1 min.


10/10 swing, 10/10 snatch, x 6 repeats,(60/60 swing, 60/60 snatch) 8 min work,
2 min rest
x 6 rotations = 60 min. (6 x 120 = 720 reps each)

In the second video I meant to say "delirious", not delusional! But once you start swinging for minutes at a time, it's hard to talk right, much less add and multiply! And keeping track of the second hand on the clock? Well forget it! (one of the drawbacks of training solo!)

Once I realized that it was taking me slightly longer than 1.25minutes to complete the first part 10/10 swings, 10/10 snatches, I the took the time to do the math and look at the clock.....I was in actuality taking 8 minutes, and 6 repeats per set. I was shooting for only 5 repeats, to make them 100 swing, 100 snatch sets, but my OCD wouldn't let me stop until I landed the second hand on the 12...and that took 6 repeats. (No denying I can't count!)

Add 720 points + 2770 = 3490 Whoops, I almost forgot my 10 warm up snatches,

Total 4000! Only 46,000 to go (says Mark!)

I've been corrected on my horrible addition! I said a person gets deliriuos doing long rep sets!

Total points 3500

No worries, just start snatching the 28, I'm sure Adam will give, uh, I don't know, maybe 100 points, per rep? LOL

Single points via the 12kg are not the way to go....but I still have got to get a workout in!
