Bottoms Up!

Woke up today with my body fighting off a cold. Everyone around me is sick these days so it was only a matter of time until something tried to take me down.

Therefore I decided to change things up a bit, tax myself a bit differently, just to keep things moving without wearing myself down too much. So what did I do? Drop the weight and practice a bit of bottoms up bell work. Here's my Saturday session...

1-Arm Bottom Up Press: 12kg - 2 minutes @ 12 rpm

1-Arm Bottom Up Clean: 12kg - 2 minutes @ 16 rpm

1-Arm Bottom Up Long Cycle Press - 12kg - 2 minutes @ 10 rpm

And now I can rest!

You know, when you run out of time or mental energy for a heavy workout, I think these "refresher" workouts are a good way to keep your body trained while also helping to eliminate mental stress and fatigue.

We don't always have to train for competition and sometimes I think it's easier to convince yourself to skip a workout if you're not meeting your goals.

Workouts like these keep you in "success" mode and ward off the "negativity" demons that frequently plague us.

Good work!
