Wednesday's seem to be the days when I go to work a little later than normally. There's a good time slot to hit a morning workout. I packed my gym bag and took off 9.15 in the morning. That's good time for me, not too early because I wouldn't that sharp an hour or two earlier. There was a time when I used to do my training at 7.00 but now that seems impossible =) That time there were no options as I had my floorball practice with the team in the evening. Nowadays I prefer to sleep. Agenda for today was overhead strength and metcon.
|Final time 14.27 on the metcon. It took me couple of seconds to push the timer off|
- Clean and jerk 5x40, 3x50, 3x60, 1x70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95, 75, 80kg
- Clean 1x90, 95, 100kg
After 60kg I took only singles, there was no max lifts in sight at any point, that was not the purpose of this day. However, I was looking to building up to heavy lifts. Most cleans were technically sound and similar, some of them were a bit off but I'm happy with them. On the jerks my front leg seems to work with lighter weights but when heavier loads come in to play front foot is not going forward enough. That means I'm not dropping below the bar enough which makes it more challenging. Better technique would result in heavier kilos obviously. That has a tremendous effect.
Recap of barbell work
Metcon. Time, 14.27
- 11 rounds of:
- 4 hang power clean, 60kg
- 8 pull-up
- 12 box
This was supposed to be a 10-rounder but I messed up with the timer and after the workout it stated there were 11 rounds instead =) Round times were astonishingly similar. It was basically 1:30-1:35 all the time. First 2 rounds were faster as well as the last round which was about 1:10. This was a good metcon for sure. Everything was done unbroken. Nothing too taxing, not too light. Just kept going and pushing through with steady pace.
There are some serious lifts from these guys!
