Comp Week Workouts

Workouts are easing up for the Toledo Kettlebell Midwest Open being hosted by Todd Baden this upcoming weekend (Oct 17th). My back is feeling better after the weekend rest. Coach had me do an "easy" 10 minute jerk set today and I was supposed to hit a 8 minute snatch set at 14-15 rpm.

Warm Up
Jerk(2x28kg) 10 min @ 7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,7,10 - 73 total
10 minutes rest
Snatch(28kg) 7 min @ L 15,15,15,8 ---> R 15,15,15,8

Jerks felt very strong. Really focused on my breathing today. When done right it really helps the bells fly up out of the rack. Overall, the snatches felt strong. Just fatigued during the last minute. Could have used a longer rest between sets.

Goals for this weekend: Jerk(2x28kg) 73 reps, Snatch(28kg) 60/60
If I can put up the snatch numbers, I will be only 10 reps on each side from CMS. The finish line is in sight.
