Today I only wanted to focus on one lift: Snatches. It's amazing how mentally draining doing many exercises on one day can be. To do only one frees up alot of energy for me, which I like. Using the 20kg felt appropriate today.

20kg 7 x 10/10 = 140 reps

That was my workout. Short but effective!

There is something about exercise, and it will definitely kick you in the butt!

Short and effective, without a doubt.

you know how much I like to really focus on one lift at a time. nice job. how's the back franz, havent heard any bad news so things must be getting good.

Pete, you are right, Snatches are butt kickers for sure. Amazing how one exercise could be so involved. Perhaps my favorite lift right now.


Back is good. If I keep my volume in check and do stability exercises, it seems to be just fine. Thanks!

Nice work on the progression the last few weeks.

That's a lot of reps. At least for normal people like me, maybe not for big time Sr RKC's like Rif, but a lot for me.

Congrats again on the house. It looks awesome. Now let's see some Christmas flair and get it covered in lights.

Nice session Franz, I have actually been watching your progression closely, after your injury and I am very impressed with how much progress you have made in such a relatively short period of time. Its a real testament to your intelligence and dilligence in training.

Mark Reifkind said...

LOL tim, thanks for the kind words.Franz I agree Tom and Tim though that your progressions have been great and you are getting good benefits from that.
I also think the chek stabilization exercises can't be beat for back stabilization and pre-rehab.
