After the double snatch test on Friday I developed my first ever snatch “injury” otherwise known as a blister. It was avoidable but I will get into that later. So training was focused on getting good work in while not causing any more damage that could slow down training more.
What I settled on was some modified Program Minimum work with the 16kg bell.
5/5 TGU to elbow
5/5 TGU to hand
5/5 TGU to sweep
5/5 TGU to kneeling
3 TGU Left
3 TGU Right
Challenging but not difficult.Read More
Mock Snatch Test Day!!!!!!
20kg, 5 minutes
One of these days I may in fact just do one snatch test.
First test came out to 76 reps. I knew I could do better, again my pace is not right. Still plenty in the tank. So I took an hour off and went again. The joke of course is that I have no idea how I did on the second test. The cards I have at home are paper thin and tend to stick together. After the second test I counted the cards and came up with 130 reps. That did not happen. So I must have tossed out more than one card at times. How many times? Who knows.
Double Press 5-3-2 x2
5 – 24kg/20kg
3 – 24kg
2 – 24KG
Brought back that double 24kg press for 5 today. Went well. On the second run through I opted to drop down to 20kg for the 5 rep set only. Good pressing.
Clean 5/5 x3
Wish Mark would have seen these cleans, either to tell me how much they sucked or how super amazing I am at cleaning.
Turkish Get Up 1/1×4
Hit 4 per side today which is a PR in terms of 24kg TGUs while on this program. Right shoulder noticeably more fatigued than left. Need to have Mark’s input.
Snatch Singles 10/10
Poor snatch singles they got dropped again, two “high” volume snatch days, plus the pressing, plus TGU made it smarter to just drop the snatch this go around.
Swing on the Minute x3
24kg – 10/10 reps
Realized I would be testing out with single arm swings and only had 1 day of single arm swings in the program…silly oversight. Going to work these harder.
There are times I hate Dan John and those times are always when I am doing the eagle. Two 16kg bells today. Made it to the 3rd round without putting them down. Then I had to rest to bang out two more rounds, rest, single round, rest, and finish the last two. Brutal.
Curse Dan John.Read More
