Today was MVO2 day and I was planning on 35 sets of just 7's as I have been pretty flat since the weekend and the seminar.My normal start to a 4 week peaking cycle.I wasn't even planning on doing any 8 rep sets.Just a nice slow start.
And I was pretty hungry for some reason, something I'm almost never am before training. Not enough tea perhaps:))
But when I started I noticed my groove was right here and the bell was flying really easily.No wasted motion at all and the speed was good.Had 2 + seconds left per 15 sec bout. Still was thinking aobut 7's all the way.
25 sets went by very fast and HR was low(?) 150 or less.So I decided to do 8's for the last 11 sets and THEY were fast too, leaving me with a second to spare in each round. HR stayed around mid 150's too. even to the end.Did 36 sets and it was no problem.
And my form is even more stiff legged;it seems the more I lean the more I get into my hip and the more I sit back the less my hips get into the picture. same as my deadlift and even my squat.I do have to stay focused on keeping my back flat and staying flat on my foot as well.
But I was really snapping into the bottom and powering right out. Way cool.

Two handed swings

I refuse to give up on being able to do this exericse and getting back into the rotation! The two hand swing is the Power Squat of the KB swings and I want my back to be able to tolerate this. Have to start off this time with low volume AND low intensity.Start real slow.
datsit.Have LOTS of Z and stretching to do.
