The Calm, before the Storm

Since getting back from the Level ll Cert, in St. Paul, a couple of weeks ago I decided to give my training some structure, inspired by the new Max V02 'boost' protocol...but first a small break. Because I had been swinging with mostly the 16kg, and up, for weeks, I was having some upper back soreness that I kept irritating by these heavy workloads.

I still have to enter my snatch points from the training I did while in St. Paul, but first here's how my 1st week back home looked like....

Monday 6/30
9:30am KB 2 hand swings, uphill and downhill ladders w/12kg, 16kg, 20kg
48 min. total workout

2-hand swings? No, that doesn't count because you did only 600 reps. It's as if you didn't even look at the kettlebell.

I was 'pacing' a client because I forgot my gymboss and she and her husband workout together and pace eachother, but he wasn't there.

I didn't really count it because even though it was only the 12kg (2 handed) I was so wiped out from my workouts over the weekend and then a heavy workout on Monday, I could barely swing it, lol!
