Cellar Training

Didn’t know if I would be able to train today, gut issues. I hate those.

Visited Dan today. opened with some front squats with his snazzy bar and bumper plates. I bowed out at about 225 ish. I don’t recall exactly. My form is crap enough that I felt like taking it up would be stupid. Go to see Dan make attempts up to 306. I did some swings, probaby got about 100 swings per arm with the 32K kb over the course of an hour.

Did a 5 minute snatch test with the 24K kb. I drove hard for 50 per arm. I should point out by “drove hard” I mean that I swung very slowly and intentionally looking to make exactly 100 in 5 minutes, 20/minute, 1 swing/ 3 seconds, slow. I threw the Bell down and Dan let me know I have 1:30 left whitch was plenty of time for 110. I didn’t want to do it but 1:30 seemed so short that I had to try. Ended with 107. A little short. Great workout though. I don’t think I would have ever pushed for 100 snatches in 5 minutes without Dan’s prodding.

Tomorrow, I believe I will climb.
