Wednesday's Training

Heavy day, but a very successful one.

Snatch, lower, Jerk - 20 kg (44 lb) - 5 x 4 L, R
RPE - 8 on the left, 7 on the right

Reverse Rows - 4 x 8
Hindu Pushups - 4 x 8
-I do these as a mini circuit.
RPE - 6

Swings - 24 kg (53 lb) - 20/min. for 10 min.
-I did singles and two-handed
-My heart rate was virtually the same as last week.
RPE - 8

I am exhausted and hungry. I've definitely noticed an increase in my appetite again. I get a little nervous when I am so ravenous, but I keep telling myself to eat smart and it will be okay. Almonds, fruit, some cheese, an extra egg. My body will adjust and then my appetite will return to normal.

Very nice workout Amy. What is "RPE?"

RPE = Rate of Perceived Exertion.

I go on a 1-10 scale.
1 = I could do this all day
10 = Shoot me now; I want to die
