2008/07/09 - Starting on a heavier note

Although I am currently focused on fully mastering the 16kg kettlebell I have decided to maintain some practice with the 24 at least once a week. Catherine Imes initially suggested that I incorporate one arm jerks with the 24 into my program because of the beneficial effect these will have on my snatches and I'm definitely going to follow her advice. So this is what I decided to do today:

Intuflow warm up.

Once through the following sequence with 2 minute rests between sets:

OAJ (24): 4 minutes: 18/18
Snatch (16): 4 minutes: 32/32
One arm LC (16): 4 minutes: 18/18

Prasara flows for 10 minutes to cool down.

The one arm LC was a killer today. I planned on working at 10 rpm but it was just too much - maybe the 24 at the beginning sapped my energy a bit much. Next time through this particular sequence I'll be sure to do the jerks with the 16.

Cheers for now.

Yeah, I would think hitting them 24's would take a bit out of you. Most important was that you finished your LC set. That's what will make it easier for you next time!
