2008/12/18 - One small step

Today I decided to take a small step forward by dropping 30 seconds off my rest periods. I started the protocol with 2 minute rest periods and am now down to 1,5 minutes (90 seconds). Here is the session:

Joint mobility

2 minutes work / 1,5 minutes rest / 16kg

One Arm Jerk: 16/16

Snatch: 16/16

Bottoms up clean: 14/14

One Arm Jerk: 16/16

Snatch: 16/16

Press: 10/10

Cool-down


The 30 seconds less rest didn't seem to make much difference. I suspect rest periods will only really become an issue when they are 1 minute or 30 seconds long or when the length of my sets start increasing.

Nice variation you threw in there - BU clean vs Press. I might start adding some of these sessions back in now that I see my back is able to hand the one arm work better.

Hey Howie

The variation was more about necessity than creativity; BUC's really tighten my lower back due to the sudden brace when stopping the bell at the top so I decided to take it easy for the second round.
