Jerks: 8 minutes with the 28kgs

Back feeling good today.  After working in the yard for the majority of the day, I decided to squeeze in a workout.  Like usual, I had an awesome performance for a day that I really lacked motivation.  8 minutes of jerks is a personal best with the 28kgs to date:

Warm Up
Jerk(20kg) - 10
3 Position Drill (20kg) - 2 minutes (4 reps)
Jerk(24kg) - 10
Jerk(28kg) - 6 rpm x 8 minutes
Jerk(28kg) - 6 rpm x 4 minutes
Swings(40kg) - 20/20 x 1 set

I had originally planned to do a 6 minute set with the 28kg, however, I was feeling so good at 6 minutes that I went for 7 and then 8 minutes.  I probably could have squeaked out 1 more minute.  I really felt like I was consistently launching the bells off my pelvis on almost every rep, which made a huge difference.  Tonight, I am really feeling the fatigue in my legs.
