The name is Swings, Just Swings. I'll have my protein cocktail shaken, not stirred, thank you.
Well this has been a rough week for me, both physically and mentally. To be honest, I am glad the week is over. Just for the fact that next week HAS to be better. I pushed myself through most workouts and didn't feel too enthusiastic. Although today offered a glimmer of hope. Actually felt a little more like myself today. This is good.
Today, I performed two-handed swings. That's it. (OK, I did do a few sets of forearm extensor prehab work in between, but those don't really count for anything until I am able to perform my snatches and clean & presses without pain.)
2-Hand Swings: 16kg - 20, 24kg - 10 (this was my warmup)
2-Hand Swings: 32kg - 15, 15, 15, 15, 20, 10, 10
That's it! 100 swings in total.
I can say, in my opinion, that 20 reps are considerably harder than 15 reps. More than only 5 reps worth.
On Z-Health... I found a certified Z-Health trainer not too far from me in NJ. I may try to hook up with him over the weekend, circumstances allowing. Maybe he can point out to me all of my shortcomings. Physical shortcomings. No, wait, anatomical shortcomings. No, that's not right either. Postural shortcomings??? Well, maybe he can help fix me. =P
Tomorrow night on Showtime is a big MMA fight. I'll record it to see if it's any good. This is an added bonus I get for switching to Showtime for Dexter, now I can see guys (and gals) submit one another. I think I'd like jiu jitsu. Also on Sunday night on the Military Channel at 10pm EST, an hourlong show about the Spetsnaz, followed by another hour on the Army Rangers. Interested to see if they mention kettlebells.
OK, gotta go. More over the long, 3-day President's Weekend. Does anyone agree that Ron Paul might do better in the polls if he wore Zubas?
