Guess What?

I'm home again because of a winter storm. Shocking, isn't it? What is this, the third week in a row that the college has been closed due to weather? Sheesh! Well, at least I can still do my training. The bonus? I'm getting over my disdain for training at home.

To begin, I tested the drills I was scheduled to do today: Double cleans, double clean and press, double squats. They all test very well.

Circuit - 6 rounds
A-Dbl Clean - two 16 kg bells - 8 reps
B-Dbl Clean & Press - two 12 kg bells - 6 reps
C -Dbl Squat - two 12 kg bells - 5 reps
Rest 20 seconds between drills, 1 min. between rounds
RPE - 7
-I am very satisfied with this circuit. Last week I only did 5 rounds and the C&P was a challenge. This week - whoosh! I tested my drills with the toe touch after each one and each tested well throughout.

Snatches - 12 kg - 15 x 12 L, R
20 seconds rest between sets
RPE - 8
-Whew! It's too hot in the house for this many snatches. My hands were sweating something fierce, which made it a challenge to keep the callouses from blistering. I survived though. I've been taught well about how to grip, or not grip, the bell.

Can't wait to heat up my chili, make a cup of tea, and snuggle in for the evening. What's on tv tonight?

Is that regular tea or your "special" Live Strong tea?? Just wondering?!!

I save the Live Strong tea for weekends, usually. ;)

Are you so proud of me for losing my blog-stalker status and actually commenting?! :-)
