Friday Mojo

Today's training was fantastic!! I had focus and felt strong.

V02 Max Snatch 15:15
7 Reps w/12 kg
40 rounds = 560 snatches

Not too long, not too short, but just right.

Waiter Windmills
12 kg - 5 x 5 L, R

It's amazing how much of a difference it makes to open your hand and hold the KB like a tray when doing windmills. That's a neat trick to make a bell that is getting too light work harder for you. I can do windmills with the 16 kg, no prob. Using the 12 with the open palm worked my stabilizing muscles differently. Very cool.

As far as Fridays go, this one was sweet. I had a great end to my week. I'm still feeling my center and my focus. Usually by Friday afternoon I'm toast, dragging my sorry butt from class to class. Not today. I felt energized. I don't know what I did right, but I need to do more of it. I guess I found my Friday Mojo!

I'm ready to go do another long Z session. I'll have to decide on my Z music. The new Staind album is pretty good. That's probably going to be my muse tonight.

I want to wish Brad and Jordan Nelson a safe and successful trip to Africa. You two are amazing!! Married less than a month and you're off helping others. I can't wait to hear all about your adventure. I'm praying for all to go well.

Amy I am glad to hear you like that new Staind album. I am in the market for a new ipod. Mine finally took a dump. They say they only last two years and mine was actually almost three. I wanted that album but didn't know if the whole thing was good or not.

I hope everything is good with you! Super cool about Brad and Jordan going to Africa. What a neat experience.

We worked the Kettlebells the other night in Biggest Loser and Hot David was impressed with the fact that I even knew what they were. I told him we could get an expert in here for a real workout. What would you think of that? A one night lesson at the Y? Would you let me know. Thank you!
