Warmed up this morning with some Super Joints Select. Then moved right on to...
Turkish Getup: 16kg - 3/3
Combination Squat/Snatch/1-Hand Swing: 16kg - 8/5+5/5+5 for 3 sets
Snatch: 20kg - on the minute for 5 minutes
1-Hand Swing: 20kg - on the minute for 5 minutes
This was a single 10 minute period after the first 5 of snatches switched over to swings. I could have squeezed out a few more sets of snatches if I tried, but I heard this little voice in the back of my head that sounded like Rif saying, "train, don't strain". But this was good. I think I like this method and will try it out with the 24kg on my next snatch day (Wed?). I'll work within the same 10 min block. As I get closer to finishing the entire block with snatches, I'll then make it a bit longer by adding more swings to the end.
Finally finished off with some easy wrist extensor curls with a mere 2.5 lbs. Performed 3 sets, rolling weight up and back down to the floor.
This will be part of my new forearm rehab program. I need to dig up a few tricks that I learned in physical therapy so long ago. I also ordered some finger extensor bands from IronMind yesterday to try out and see if it helps. In the meantime, I am going to try to lay off cleans as much as possible, as I think they are the major culprit here. That's it for today, time to start a new week!
