2008/07/07 - A new start

Today was the official start of my training program based on the AKC fitness protocol. Feeling slightly fluish I decided to take it easy. Here is what happened:

Intuflow warm up

OAJ (16): 4 minutes: 24/24
Snatch (16): 4 minutes: 32/32
Press (16): 4 minutes: 15/15

I went through the sequence once with 2 minute rests between sets.

Finished off with 10/10 32kg swings and a few minutes of Prasara yoga.

Keep those workouts on the low end of the rep scale on those days you're not 100%. Will help keep up your momentum without overtaxing your system. Introducing the presses today was probably a good idea. Nice job.

Thanks Howie. We seem to have a particularly vicious flu bug going in SA at the moment. I have rarely seen poor Jocelyn (my wife) so sick. This bloody thing seems to go straight towards either bronchitis or pneumonia so I'm being cautious. I was amazed today at how hard just 15 reps per hand in the presses felt. My plan was to do 2 rounds but one was more than sufficient for where my body is at.
