2008/06/11 - Going for 10 minutes

Today's plan was to go for my first 10 minute jerk set with only one hand switch. I decided to take it slow and focus on form. For snatches I am also currently working on increasing the length of the sets and minimize hand switches. This was the result:


OAJ (16kg): 10 minutes @ 8rpm with one switch: 80
Snatch (16kg) : 6 minutes @ 12 rpm with one switch: 72

Some yoga and qigong.

My arms and legs feel like lead after this session but I think I've gone through some psychological barrier - I've been stuck on 8 minutes with jerks and 4 with snatches.

Excellent work!! 10 minutes, awesome! I'm thinking of attempting 6 minutes in the morning Long Cycle with the 12kg. I'm now inspired!
