Ahhh, I can hear The Doors singing in my head right now.
Today, I decided to throw caution to the wind and push myself into new territory. I did. And I am better for it. Here's the play by play...
Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 4 minutes @ 6 rpm
Snatch: 20kg - 6 minutes @ 12 rpm
One Arm Jerk: 32kg - 6L/6R
Swing: 32kg - 5L/5R
My Jerks are improving. The 4 minutes felt relatively good and I would tried to stretch it except I knew that I was going to go for the gold today on my Snatches.
Snatches... well I survived. It got pretty ugly toward the end of each arm's turn. My breathing was good but my arm and hand was very fatigued. I grit my teeth and fought through. This was a HUGE breakthrough for me.
OAJs felt pretty good. Swings were as uncomfortable as they were when I first started swinging the 28kg. But I know, it'll come with time. Good day today. Tomorrow, I rest!
