New 16kg Circuit

This week I decided to start practicing on a 4 day schedule, Mon/Tue/Thu/Fri. Mondays and Thursdays will be focused on Snatch practice, Tuesdays and Fridays other select movements.

After reading the Brett Jones' article on preparing for the RKC Cert Challenge, I decided it was time to shake things up a bit and introduce at least one circuit workout into the week. Also wanting to add Clean & Squats somewhere, this seemed to be the perfect opportunity.

Everything today was done with a single 16kg kb, and it went something like this...

2-Hand Swings: 20
Clean & Squat: 4/4
Get Up: 3/3
2-Hand Swings: 20
Clean & Squat: 4/4
Snatch: 4/4
2-Hand Swings: 20
Clean & Squat: 4/4
Clean & Press: 3/3

I worked the circuit once through at a steady pace. Paused at the end. Well actually I took a bit of a longer break than I would have thought as the new Foo Fighters video for Long Road to Ruin came on VH1 and I just had to watch it. It was pretty funny. Oh and also starred Rashida Jones. Another good reason to watch. Once the video was over I went through the circuit one more time and called it a morning.

2 times through the circuit today. Right now I'm not sure if I'll do this, like this, once a week. Or maybe throw in another mini circuit on Fridays. We'll have to wait and see. Now tomorrow I get to rest. But I have to say, I sure am digging this!

I love that little circuit stuff... it is a little like dancing.

I felt a little more like I was playing musical chairs. "When is the music going to stop? When can I sit down??"
