Monday Max V02 9 reps per 15 sec.

9:00am 40 min walk
10:30am KB

Warm up

1 min on. 1 min. rest, misc. swings and snatches w/12kg, x 3 = 6 min.

Work sets

9 snatch L, 15 sec
15 sec rest
9 snatch R, 15 sec
15 sec rest
x 52 sets = 26 min.

sets 49-52

15 min. swing combinations w/16kg & 12kg (440 swings)

Total workout 47 min.

I felt good and rested (from snatches!) and didn't have any problems with this workout. I increased my reps per 15 sec from 8 to 9 and it seems to be the perfect pace, decreasing the rest period by a couple of seconds, using up the full 15 sec., keeping my heart rate higher.

I remembered the first time I snatched 9 reps per 15 sec., last year, and I thought you might enjoy seeing the difference in my conditioning.

Your words, workouts, and views are inspiring. The thing I love the most though is "Powertrip" always playing in the background!

It'll be interesting to see how the 16kg feels next week after doing 9's.

I hope the day of the 14kg (30lb) kettlebell is coming soon. For me, I think it could benefit my training.
