Ten four, good buddy! My semester is over and I'm outta there. I am ready for a few days away from grading papers. I do have a lot of ideas to work up over my break for my spring semester classes. I'm going to blow my students away!
A professor can dream, can't she?
Seriously, I have so many new activities and assignments I want to try to make my classes better. It's going to be fun!
Know what else is fun? Gym Movement training. I had the best training session today. After gorging myself on Christmas goodies all week, I vowed to work out for three hours today. Luckily it didn't take three hours to get in some quality movements and make myself feel fantastic.
So many drills tested well today. It was insane. I chose the six that tested best and put them in a circuit.
Circuit - 30 minutes - 25,000 lbs. +
1. Plate Press - 25 lbs.
Left - 25 reps, Right - 32 reps
2. ATG Squats - 80 reps
3. TRX Pushups - 48 reps
4. Snatch - 12 kg
Left - 60 reps, Right - 60 reps
5. 1 Arm KB Cleans - 20 kg
Left - 40 reps, Right - 40 reps
6. 1 Arm KB Rows - 16 kg
Left - 32 reps, Right - 32 reps
I did four rounds of drills. Listed above are my total reps for the four rounds. Today was the first time in months that snatches test well. Cleans and swings work essentially the same range of motion in the lower body, but don't put stress between my shoulder blades. Plus, cleans and swings allow me to move a lot more weight. I'm curious to see how my body reacts to the snatches and if my pain will come back. If so, I'm good with leaving snatches out of my regimen.
I smell some sacred cow burning.
