Swing: 12kg - 10/10; 16kg - 10/10
Jerk: 2 x 12kg - 8 minutes at 6 rpm - total of 48 reps
Cooldown consisted of some foam roller work, Kettlebell Foundation Compensatory movements and some impromptu trigger point massage on my quadratus lumborum using a plastic polar bear(!) in place of a tennis ball. (Hey, sometimes you gotta make do with what you have on hand.)
I was mentally set to eek out this 8 minute set of Jerks. Around minute five I was started to have my doubts, but I stayed focused on getting through each individual minute and tried my best to find my hip bones to get in some rest. Funny thing is, sometime in minute six I thought about going for ten minutes. I probably could have but didn't want to push it too much today. My back is hurting a bit today (and yesterday).
I'm off to Barnes & Noble again today to pick up a book on Trigger Point Therapy. I'm going to figure this back thing out (eventually). I've decided to remove the heal insert I have been wearing. Since I have been wearing it for weeks now and still have not gotten lasting relief and since I don't totally believe that my condition is structural but muscular, I don't want it overcompensating things. Worse case, I can always put it back in.
So that's it for today. Hopefully, tomorrow I feel even better than today! Jerk 'em up y'all!!
