Timed Set Day, 24kgs

Today was timed set day with the 24kg bells. I didn't feel like 100% going in, still some lasting soreness from last week's training, but luckily the temperature was on my side today.

Here's the skinny...

Jerk: 2 x 24kg - 3-3/4 minutes @ 8 rpm - total of 30 jerks

Snatch: 24kg - 4 minutes @ 12 rpm

Rope Work: 2-1/2 min on / 2 min off for 4 rounds

I have now improved my jerk set by 6 reps since last test. (That's a 25% increase! Wow!) So now that means I accordingly increase the volume on the days I train my sets/ladders.

Snatches didn't see any improvement, but that could be because I was totally spent after the jerks. The rope work was difficult too. There was a lot of tripping today. Not just because I increased my set time, I was tripping up right from the get go. I must have fried my CNS.
