2008/08/31 - Moderate intensity day

Here is my session for today:

Intuflow beginner level

4 minutes / 16 kg / 1 minute rest between sets:

Press: 24/24
Snatch: 32/32
One Arm Long Cycle: 14/12

Swing (40kg): 8/8

Prasara Cricket Flow: 2 rounds

The long cycle was a killer today. I don't think I practice it often enough. I also think the faster paced snatch set right before the LC took a toll. I was surprised by the 40kg swings though. My 40kg bell has been sitting quietly in the corner since I got it a few months ago. Today I thought I'd play with it a bit - not too difficult at all. The main problem was with my grip and I stopped after 8 reps fearing that the bell might fly through the living room window. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Still another day coming on our 3-day weekend over here in the US.

40kg swings, huh? Nice! Wasn't today supposed to be 'moderate'? =)

Great work on them Snatches. I can see why the Long Cycle might have been tough. Remember, you're working at a 4:1 work:rest ratio. That's no joke.

The 40kg swings were not bad, except for the handle. As you probably know the DD bells get bigger and bigger as the weight goes up (and that includes the handle). If I could get a 40kg Prograde bell I would be fine. Today was moderate intensity i.t.o. my program design. A relatively short session with lowish reps. Hopefully tomorrow I can push toward some long sets. We'll see.
