Getting back in the groove. Hands are getting better and I can't use them as excuses anymore. No but for real, it made good to get some rest from gripping the barbell. Still had to use gloves to protect the palms but it didn't bother at all. Strength and long emom were on the agenda.
- Every minute on the minute x 10 minutes
- 3 push press behind the neck
- 1-2min: 70kg
- 3-4min: 73kg
- 5-6min: 75kg
- 7-8min: 78kg
- 9-10min: 80kg
Doing these weights as push jerks from front would have felt heavier. Haven't done much work from behind the neck. That's why I wasn't sure how to play with the weights. These were something I finished very well. Could have gone heavier. My grip width was similar as in snatch. That means a lot wider than regular presses / jerks. It's stable and solid when going wider with the grip.
- Every minute on the minute x 32 minutes
- 1st min: 10 handstand push-ups
- 2nd min: 15 kettlebell swing, 28kg
- 3rd min: 15 push-ups
- 4th min: 10 dumbbell snatch, 25kg (5 right / 5 left hand)
I got them unbroken for all but the last round. 8th round was 7-2-1 reps. Those were the most challenging as a single movement. But mostly it was the overall worn out feeling that usually comes in these longer emoms. They look easier on paper but at some point it starts to get under your skin. It's kind of funny that you're really really happy it's finally over even though you would be able to still continue if some pointed a gun in your head.
Kb swings naturally unbroken, push-ups too. Snatches were 5 for right hand, then 5 for left hand. Until mid way or a bit pas that moment I thought about changing the dumbbell to 30kg version but towards the end I pushed that though aside.
