This morning's session consisted mostly of pre-hab shoulder work. And few Swings and Snatches at the end.
"Shoulder Flow"®: 12kg - 2x thru each side
Overhead Squat: Empty Barbell - 3 sets of 8
A1) Double Overhead Holds: 2x12kg - 30 sec x 3 cycles
A2) Russian Karate Twists: 2x12kg - 30 sec x 3 cycles
These two were supersetted for 3 minutes in total. Left shoulder Rice Crispies (snap, crackle and pop) didn't start until the third time through.
"Fighter" Pushups - 8, 8, 8
1-Hand Swings: 16kg - 2 sets of 20/20
Snatches: 16kg - 3 sets of 5/5
A little forearm pain during my second set of Snatches on the left side, but I was able to adjust my downswing and follow through so that it lasted only about a rep or two. I suppose this will be my learning process now, watch for what triggers the discomfort and then adjust my mechanics.
On another note... I finally picked up a video card for my computer, so I am now video-capable. But when one is a beginner like me, what does one upload for the world to see that they haven't already seen from others better qualified?
