2009/01/26 - Day 18: Ouch!

I just barely managed to chew what I chose to bite off today. I have seen some comments on the RMax forums that people often train almost daily without ever really reaching real intensity. According to those same comments the 4x7 protocol coupled with intuitive training can ensure real intensity in a training protocol albeit it only every 4 days. Now on day 18 of my first real 4x7 cycle I can really begin to understand what intensity feels like. Today's session was one of the toughest sessions I've done in quite a while. As I'm writing this I'm very much aware that the session doesn't look like much on paper but it really was quite a smoker. This is what I did:

Kettlebells: 16kg / 3 minutes work / 1 minute rest

One Arm Push Press: 24/24

Half Snatch: 15/15

Long Cycle Push Press: 15/15

BWER Hybrid Routine: 5 Supersets / 45 seconds per exercise / 90 seconds rest:

Quad Squat / Rocca

One legged squat / Lateral leg swoop

Pike / Crow

Jump squat / Reaching arch

I'm very glad this session is over and I'm looking forward to two lighter days.

So I take it today was "HIGH INTENSITY"?
