Today's session was an experiment of sorts. Thinking about yesterday's outing, I came to think that I might have been spending too much time resting in the overhead position with my jerks. That could have been a major factor for my fatigued shoulders during my snatch set. So today, I wanted to give it another go, trying to rest more in the rack. Here's the result...
Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 5 minutes @ 8 rpm
Snatch: 20kg - 6 minutes @ 14 rpm
Swing: 28kg - 10 / 10
Treadmill: 20 minutes, walk/light run, 1:1 ratio
So the jerk set was a bit more difficult than yesterday. Mostly because yesterday's session came off the weekend of rest. But the snatch set was MUCH better fatigue-wise. My cardio was taxed more today than yesterday, but my pace was up from yesterday as well. Good call, I say! I'm liking what I'm seeing!
