Every Day is a Holiday!

Famous words by which great entertainment character?

Well for me, every day is pretty much a PR day. I am now in unchartered waters as far as kettlebell sport is concerned. Every day that I push myself into uncomfortable places, I make gains and hit a PR.

Here's today's session...

Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 4-1/2 minutes - 42 jerks total

Snatch: 20kg - 8 minutes - 14/12/14/10/14/12/14/12 - 102 snatches total

OAJ: 24kg - 8/8

Swing: 24kg - 10/10

Today is a snatch PR. For jerks, I was shooting for 5 minutes @ 10 rpm. Shortly into minute five, I gassed out. I held on till the 4-1/2 minute mark but was only able to throw up two reps in that time. I was definitely a good sprint!

So how am I viewing my training/progress? Here's a little graph that I've been entering my daily training volume into. Let me know what you think.

Interesting graph. There seems to be an upward and downward wave running through it but the general trend is upwards. From my point of view this shows pretty intelligent waving of your training volume. Your numbers are showing that you are on the right track. Keep at it! I'm sure Denis will have some interesting things to add when you meet with him in October. Keep your eyes peeled for my interview with him in the next couple of weeks.
