Another busy week so training was a bit intermittent. I did however get back to throwing some iron around, first time in over a month I’ve done anything other than demo the kettlebell. Still kept up a good relationship with the foam roller, we’re thinking of getting engaged soon…..
Swings! 24kg hand to hand swings x 100 Double 16kg 1 handed swing x 50 l/r 40kg 1 hand swing x 50 l/r 24kg hand to hand swings x 100
Nice. Also to grease the groove pull ups throughout the day.
Swings again: laid out all the bells: 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44 and did pyramids: 10 reps 2hand swings 8 through 44 and back 10 reps left hand swing 8 through 36 and back 10 reps right hand swing 8 through 36 and back 10 reps 2 hand swing 8 though 44 and back
Taught for two hours then joined in on the conditioning class for a circuit of:
Knee Jump to Long Jump
Ring Push ups (played around with arm excursions on these)
Jump Switch Lunges
We did 4 rounds on a variety of work to rest ratios. It felt gooooood
Tight for time so only a quick 300 squats
Again trained with my class, using the guys energy for my own motivation.
Warm up with mobility, squats, push ups, lunges
1: Double KB Front Squats to low box 5 reps x 16’s, 20’s, 24’s, 28’s and 4 x 32’s (ths was the first loaded squat in months!) 2A: 1 Arm Push Up L/R x (1,2,3,4,5) x 3 2B: Pull Up + 20kg x (1,2,3,4,5) x 3 3: Double KB Clean/Burpee 5×5
stretch to cool down.
No training other than a few pull ups here and there and some quality time with my foam roller.
Playing coach. With my guys at the Irish Kettlebell Sports Championships. Did play a little in the warm up area as i helped the guys but felt the rack possition straight away. Its definitely a hip extension issue I have. Pressing bells overhead is no worry, but the jerk is a problem.
