Better Effort

Another jerk today.  Mentally just not into it these days.  Things aren't as easy anymore.  My progress is slowing down.  The 28s are posing a challenge.  It is difficult to motivate for the suffering I know is coming as my jerk sets get longer.  Somehow, over the next 2 months, I need to find an additional 4 minutes (currently can go 5-6 minutes at 8 rpm with 28s) in the jerk to make CMS.  I think it is possible, but there will be much suffering ahead.

Warm Up
OAJ(16kg) 10/10
OAJ(20kg) 10/10
Jerk(20kg) 10
OAJ(24kg) 10/10
Jerk(24kg) 10
Jerk(28kg) 8 rpm x 5 minutes
Jerk(28kg) 8 rpm x 5 minutes
Swing(40kg) 20/20

Despite my poor mental attitude prior to my workout, the 28kg jerks felt pretty good today.  My new plan is to try to work a total of 10 minutes of 28kg jerks with every session.  This will likely occur in two sets ( 5min and 5 min, or 6 min and 4 min).  I need to start getting used to doing 80 reps with the 28s.  Eventually these will start to feel light just as the 24kgs have.
