Wednesday's Training

Block B is bringing new challenges.

Snatch - lower to rack - Jerk - 20 kg (44 lb) - 4 x 3 L, R
-I kept wanting to clean the bell instead of snatching it! Once I got my brain to think "snatch, lower, jerk, snatch" I was good.
-I L-O-V-E-D this combo.
RPE - 7

Reverse Rows - 4 x 7
Hindu Pushups - 4 x 7
-I did these as a mini-circuit. Reverse rows right into the pushups.
RPE - 6

Swings - 24 kg (53 lb) - 20 at the top of the min. for 10 min.
-It took me about 24-27 seconds to do the 20 swings, leaving me with 30+ seconds to rest.
-This will definitely work my grip!
-Heart rate at completion - 138 bpm
-at 1 min. - 120 bpm
-at 2 min. - 108 bpm
RPE - 7

After that I went for a much-needed massage. I am a pile of mush right now. Sleep cannot come soon enough. Tomorrow will bring pullups and pistol work.

Hi Amy,
You are making great time with those swings on the minute. I think you need a bigger bell!

Since my mind was a little foggy, I had to Google "reverse rows". I know you recently used rings for pull-ups. Did you use rings for the reverse rows too?

Nice job!

Bigger bell is sitting in St. Paul at Brad's gym. I just need to find time to drive up and get it. Priorities, right?

I was supposed to do ring rows on Wednesday, but the rings I have are hanging from ceiling rafters in my basement and cannot be adjusted low enough to do the rows. The gym where I train does not have rings at all, so I end up doing reverse rows from a bar on the Smith machine. And for the record, that is the ONLY time I use the Smith rack!!!
