Last week's training was pretty much a bust. Lots going on at home and at work, didn't allow me to work my usual routine. I only squeezed in two sessions during the week.
On Saturday, I gave a short kettlebell demonstration at a local tai chi school. Looks like I will be going back soon to teach a beginner's seminar.
Even with this I could feel my neck and back tightening up on me over the weekend. And today, things were even worse. Not only did my workout feel tough physically, given my recent time away, but the muscles in my neck went into spasm. I can feel the tightness through my neck and up onto my scalp. It's been a long time since I've felt this way. Just goes to show what happens when you stop moving!
Anyway, enough crying from me. Here's today's 'easy' workout...
One Arm Press: 20kg - 4 minutes @ 12 rpm
Snatch: 20kg - 4 minutes @ 16 rpm
One Arm Long Cycle Push Press: 20kg - 4 minutes @ 10 rpm
Funny how I now go into automatic Jerk mode when I first started the Push Presses. I feel like my energy is lacking as of late. I think I have hit a point in my training where I need to start increasing my caloric intake. I'm weighing in around 162lbs (73kg) these days. Good excuse to eat, huh?
