Even though I wake up with a particularly tight back in the morning, I usually feel pretty good as the day goes on. Today was no different, so I decided to make it a Jerk Day.
Early this morning I practiced the Intermediate Intu-Flow program along with a few of my Muscular Retraining exercises.
This afternoon consisted of the following...
Swing: 12kg - 20/20
2 x 12kg - 6 minutes @ 6 rpm
2 x 16kg - 2 minutes @ 6 rpm
1-Arm Long Cycle: 20kg - 4 minutes @ 8 rpm (switching hands each minute)
Cooled down with Kettlebell Foundation Compensatory Movements.
It's been a while since I've done any real work with bigger bells and my hands could feel the difference using the 20kg. My plan is to slowly add in the bigger bells for the sake of my back. At the same time, it should help my hands acclimate as well. So far, so good! Jerk 'em up y'all!
