You Might As Well Face It, You're Addicted To Bells

Even though I am still sore from Saturday's adventures, something inside me was itching to get under the bells, just a bit, today. Figuring if I get moving a bit and then follow up with some compensatory movements, I might be better off.

So I was faithful to myself and kept it short and sweet...

Jerk: 2x16kg - 3 minutes @ 6 rpm - total of 18 Jerks

Push Press: 20kg - 4 minutes @ 8 rpm - I alternated arms each minute with these - total of 32 push presses

Cooled down with a selection of Kettlebell Foundation Compensatory movements.

I was surprised at how well the Jerks felt. Maybe the heavier bells let me drive my elbows into my hips more so than the 12kgs. I thought about going a bit longer but opted to be conservative today.

The 20kg Push Presses actually felt kinda light at that pace.

Gotta go.... that's it for today.

Hey Howie. I agree; the heavier weights definitely help with the rack position. They just seem to push the elbows all the way down to the hips whereas the lighter weights don't seem to do the job as well.
