Sunday's workout session was deep but it felt no influence on this training day. I felt good opening the gym door. Decided to hit an awkward workout - benchmark workout Grace - but with light weight. That was actually a genius workout. After getting a grip of life again I did another quite short workout of bodyweight movements. Pauliina also did 2 circuit style workouts. She's rocking it!
- Clean and jerk, touch'n'go
- 5-5-5-5 (40, 50, 60, 70kg)
So I took couple of sets clean and jerk with light weight. Did all sets t'n'g style, meaning I didn't stop at any point of the movement, not on the floor, not on the front rack position. Just kept the barbell moving all the time. Felt good on these clean and jerks.
Another one was played last night, NY @ DC
Light Grace. Time 1.54
- 30 clean & jerk, 50kg
Metcon. Time 8.54
- 5 rounds of:
- 5 handstand push-ups
- 30 double unders
- 200m run (on a treadmill)
Hspu's were easy, and unbroken. Double unders were great for 4 rounds. I tried to keep the transition much shorter than normally. Right after finishing the double unders, I clicked the treadmill on before even getting on it. My round times were within seconds on rounds 2-4 (1:45 - 1:47). First round is always quicker because of transitions. On the last round I messed around with the jump rope that lost me some time.
These two workouts were great. Awesome reminders to keep short metcons in the stock too. Long, and short, heavy and light, all kinds of workouts.
