What a great weekend! Coming from someone who has been training alone as of late, in a cold, dark parking garage, being among a group of others who share my passion for lifting the bells and also in the presence of some of the best lifters in the country makes for a great time!
We did a lot of work this weekend. I estimated that I personally lifted approximately 22 tons on the first day and another 16 tons on the second day of the certification. I received some good technical refinements that I will now be putting into practice.
I took yesterday off to rest my weary body, but still felt a bit of the effects today. I also lost some skin on my left palm toward the end of the second day. I wasn't sure if my hand was up to snatching today. I did a bit, but stopped early. I'll be doing some teaching tomorrow, so my hand will have another 48 hours to continue to heal before I attempt any more snatches.
Here's today's session...
Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 5 minutes @ 8 rpm
Snatch: 20kg - 1 min left/2 min right @ 14 rpm
Swing: 20kg - 15/15, 20/20
Jump Rope: 5 min on / 2 min off / 3 min on / 1 min off / 2 min on
That's it for today. By Thursday I should be back to 100%!
