We spent the day in the nature. There is this place called Seurasaari which is beautiful in the summer time. I have actually been there only once before but it sure is a cool place. In the evening I had plenty of time to hang around at the gym so it was a long warm-up before touching the barbell. Snatch technique and another long emom style workout for the weekend. Below are some pics from Seurasaari.
Focus was on keeping the bar close to body, have the weights light, and analyze the foot work. It seemed difficult for me to go low enough. I can do overhead squats with butt way below parallel but in the very deepest position my spine takes a short bend so that's not the depth I'm looking for right now. But I'd like to see myself drop below parallel on snatches anyway.
- Every minute on the minute x 28 minutes
- 1st min: 12 kettlebell swing, 28kg
- 2nd min: 10 burpee box jump
- 3rd min: 10 meter walking lunges (50kg), barbell in back rack
- 4th min: 12 ghd sit-ups
My pace remained identical for all 7 rounds. It just started to feel nastier and nastier every round but mental games was there so I was able to keep up the pace. It took 20-30 seconds to finish swings and ghd's. Not quite sure about the lunges but burpee boxes took about 30 seconds. Those must have been the longest portion of this workout.
Here's a recap of all work being done this Sunday. Actually it was fun =)
