Lowbar technique really din't feel as comfortable this morning...I reverted to HB and felt better. The last two sets felt awkwardly light.:confused: I'm not complaining though.

[B]Active Rest and Recovery[/B]

My wife and I took advantage of a gift we had received for our anniversary; an hour long spa treatment.
I had this tiny, older woman but she packed a lot in her small hands!!:eek: I had her concentrate primarily on my back. It was well worth it.


I spent a solid 20 minutes working my hand position and keeping active shoulders in the overhead position. Split the time between snatching and OHS 95#.
I was happy with the work but I know that I have a long road ahead.

Re: Mike's Mad Log

I found this on a Youtube vid and changed up a few movements.

2 mins single unders
1 min KB exercise
KBS 50#
Sotts Press 2x16#
Goblet Squat 70#
Snatch, Right 40 #
Snatch, Left
C&P, Left 50#
C&P, Right
Single Arm Thruster, Right 40#
Single Arm Thruster, Left

The singles were done at the beginning and between each kettlebell move; I threw in DUs here and there to push myself more. It turned out to be more taxing than excepted....

[B]Conditioning[/B] 40 minutes of interval training

Re: Mike's Mad Log

[B][I]Burgener WU[/I][/B]

[B]Strength[/B] :weight_l:

Front Squats

I changed up my grip after reading an article on griping the bar versus utilizing the two finger method. Didn't note any substantial difference, so I'll have to play around some more.
And, my miss at 295# was probably from being tired as heck....

[B]Conditioning[/B] 42 minutes of interval training
