Hardest Workout To Date

My finger is took a turn for the worse after I took a direct blow from a baseball to the tender spot on my left index finger while playing catch with my boys last night. However, it really doesn't seem to bother me when I am snatching so I have just decided to push on.

Today was perhaps the most difficult workout my coach has given me over the past 9 months:

Warm Up
Jerk(2x28kg) 3 min @ 10 rpm
3 min @ 9 rpm
3 min @ 8 rpm
**I rested 3 minutes between each set
Rest 10 minutes
Snatch(32kg) 6 minutes @ L14/14/14 ----> R14/14/14
OAJ(40kg) 10/10
Swing(32kg) 45/45

Both the snatch set and swings had me on the verge of vomiting.
I really like the drop set jerks. They are a nice change in pace from the long sets that I usually do. Prior to my last competition, I was doing short sets at increased rates and also some short sets with the 32s. These seemed to carry over very well to my long competition set with the 28s.

Yikes even toned down to my relative weight levels that would make me puke too

great work man. although I seriously HATE to throw up.seriously.
make sure that finger doesn't keep getting worse. I have trigger thumb and it's taken me almost a year to get it to release. don't mess around with the digits,lol.
