Impromptu Jerks

I was feeling pretty good this evening and being off from work inspired me to sneak in a quick, exploratory jerk session.

Very short and very sweet...


2 x 16kg - 3 minutes @ 5 rpm

2 x 20kg - 1 minute @ 5 rpm

2 x 24kg - 1 minute @ 5 rpm

I wanted to get a taste of some heavier jerks than I've been practicing. My New Year's Resolution... by the end of 2009 get ranked by WKC with 24kg bells in the biathlon (jerk & snatch).

Hope you're having a fun filled holiday season! Good to see you are still working hard and progressing on the k-bells.

Great goal for '09'! It's just going to take time, commitment and maybe a little bloodshed to achieve it! But you are more than capable.

My advice to you is spend as much time under the 24's as possible, make them your new best friends! Pick a rep range (rpm) and build the duration, then once you are hitting 8 mins or more at that rate, drop the duration a little and up the rate. Sounds pretty basic and unglamorous I know, but it works for me.

Happy New Year to you and your family!

Wow! Good goal for 2009 buddy. Keep it up and you might be the fittest 90 year old on the planet.
