I decided to include Long Cycle Bottom Up Presses into my mix today. Luckily I'm still working with the 12kg bell. But even still, it didn't make much difference for my left side. Then again, I can't really complain since I never train these. And one has to start somewhere, sometime as ugly as it may be.
Here's today's selection of movements:
Long Cycle Bottom Up Press
Using the 12kg for all, worked 2 minutes each movement without putting the bell down. Short rests in between. Then worked a second time through each.
My pace was spot on for the Presses and Snatches. Once I hit the BU Presses, it got ugly fast. Since I started on my left side, they pretty much fell apart. Counted only 3 good ones. Right side did much better, banging out 7. Second time through on these, another 3 on the left side. Right side reduced to 5 due to fatigue. But like I said, you gotta start somewhere. Right?
