Today I worked through my famous "Jerk Progression" with the 20kg bell. I had intended to perform 3-minute sets today, but unfortunately when the time came to train, I realized that I didn't have my clock with me. I cleaned out my car over the weekend and left it in my garage following my Saturday workout.
So, as a means to compensate, I decided to hit my target reps for each movement moving as a pace that I gauged to be in line with desired 3 minutes. Regardless, I was sucking wind pretty good at the end of the second and third sets. Here's the play-by-play...
Press: 20kg - 18L/18R
Push Press: 20kg - 24L/24R
1-Arm Jerk: 20kg - 24L/24R
Followed by a yoga cooldown.
My energy wasn't all there today. Probably the hectic weekend coupled with not eating as well as I do during the week. We'll see how tomorrow feels. That's it for today. Jerk 'em up y'all!
