I've been on a pretty good tear lately, hit some new PRs last week, so I thought it was a good idea to taper down a bit. My goal this week is to try to hit somewhere around 70% of what was my normal intensity/volume per session.
First off, I did not attend Steve Freides' workshop yesterday. I had wanted to, but the whole family had come down with another cold/cough this week, and trying to be the new me, I decided not to push it, but allow myself to rest while I had the chance. To make up for it, I did order Pavel's Resilient DVD. I see it includes some elbow work and hope its something applicable to my condition.
Anyway, today's session was performed with just the 16kg rather than the 24kg. It comes in handy that just dropping from 24kg to 16kg, my weight is already reduced to about 70%. Therefore, I decided to hit the same number of swings as last week, easily slipping me into my 70% intensity range.
Getups: 16kg - 4/4
1-Hand Swings: 16kg -
Why start off with 27 swings per side? Given my body weight today, I would have to complete 54 snatches at the RKC cert. I just wanted to know how it felt performing 54 reps non-stop. This is probably the first time I've done this. Not too hard doing swings with a 16kg. =)
I then followed up with some misc forearm work. That's it for today. Easy Peasy!! (I think that's a Cheathamism.)
