Woke up a 5am today, eager to start getting back to some 'serious' training.
Warmed up first with some Spinal Rocks, then onto
Getups: 16kg - 5min alternating sides each rep
Then onto today's challenge...
Jerk: 2 x 16kg - 4 minutes @ 6 rpm
Snatch: 16kg - 6 minutes @ 12 rpm
The longest I've done for Jerks with 16kg has been 5 minutes. I'm still pretty tight making it hard to get comfortable in the rack. Once this opens up, I should be ready to cruise. The Snatches felt pretty good. This was the longest set I've done in a while. No problems with the hands at all. I'm excited to finally be able to start making some real progress!
Tomorrow I start the Fitness Protocol using the 20kg bell. My plan is to alternate these two workouts. The 16kg will continue upward until I can hit 10 minute sets on Jerk and Snatch, while the 20kg Fitness work will help start to build my strength. Once I hit my target with the 16kg, then I move the 20kg into its place and start the Fitness Protocol with the 24kg. It's a grand experiment and one I'm excited to start. That's it for today. Jerk 'em up y'all!
