Max V02 today.
warm up sets 4 min
check the max 1 min

My plan is the ETK Rite of Passage Workout using the 32kg for
ladders and the 24kg for snatches. V02 on Tuesday and
variety on Thursday. Might switch these days to spread out the snatches
next week. Goal is 5x5 ladders with the 32kg, 80 sets V02 max and 200 snatches with the 24kg in 10 minutes (Secret Service Snatch Test).

Not quite 100% but close

Hit the clean and press today. Tried a few snatches. Hands are healing nicely but still tender. The urge is there to smoke it but I don't want to be out for another week waiting on them to heal. Per the ETK, "Take care of your hands."
Clean and press is much more crisp after learning to troubleshoot.
Worked the C&P ladders today while cutting grass. Every time I had to empty the bagger I hit another ladder. Made it 3x5 before the Auburn game started and the hands felt like they would burst. I also was smoking some lunch on the grill. Nothing like a little multi tasking.

Idea for kettlebells in cars.

I was at my buddy's boat shop today and saw this. I've been working on an idea for a multi-bell holder but this was just sitting there so I snagged it. Works pretty good for my driving although I haven't tried it with my wife's yet. I found a smaller cheap one at Bass Pro for $6.99. It's made for the tongue jack on a trailer to sit in.


Dying to do some ballistics but I don't want to rip the hands open
again. Maybe a few presses, squats and TGUs. Patience! Grease the groove.

Back from the RKC!

What a weekend! Nothing like a couple thousand swings to get your blood flowing. I met lot's of awesome people who share my passion for physical exertion. As soon as my hands feel better I'll be slinging the iron again. Here's a link to more photos from the RKC. www.dragondoor.com/cgi-bin/thumbs.pl?dir=workshops/sept08
