2008/07/16 - Easing back into things

Like I said last week I have been chasing reps lately. I planned on taking things more calmly this week and nature conspired to make my plan a reality. I was down and out for the last three days with a nasty fever (flu or something). I'm still feeling a bit under the weather but did manage to go to work today. Not wanting work to be the only victor of this battle against whatever bug I've got I decided to put in a short training session. I took it very easy. Here goes:

Intuflow warm-up.

The following with the 16kg with 2 minutes rest between sets:

One Arm Jerk: 2 minutes: 12/12
Snatch: 2 minutes: 15/15
Push Press: 2 minutes: 12/12

Swings (24kg): 20/20

That's it.

I stumbled upon the AKC protocal on Howie Brewer's blog and have been getting into it for the past few weeks. I've already hit some PRs in one arm jerk and snatch so life is good.

I'll be putting a link to your blog because it looks like I might learn a thing or two here.

Are you an AKC?

In your workout log, are your rep numbers for the entire set or per minute?

Nice work Johan. Hopefully this short session will help accelerate your recovery and not hinder it. Amazing how good a mere 6 minutes of work can make one feel.
