Training this week...

Really struggled for the first time in a long time with an Upper Respirator infection. Kept the volume relatively low to focus on recovery.

RTK Presses: 32kgL/24kgR x 4 x (2,4,6), with 5 squats at the end of each workout.
Sumo Deadlifts: 2 32kg x 2 x 20
==> The right shoulder is still wonky in limit strength work.

Tuesday: Random KB stuff with USF Kettlebell Club (mostly for demonstration purposes)
* Pressed the 16,12,and 8kg bells in one hand
* Figure 10 snatch (2 outside the leg snatches to a gunslinger)

RTK Long Cycle: 2 24kg x 5 x (2,4,6,8,10) in 27:30 (Hard to compress work when you are coughing up a lung. I think this is a PR, but I am not sure. Form felt good. Finished with Renegade Rows: 24kg x 3 x 10. Bowling was OK, but did not score well.

Thursday: Rest/Recover

Friday: DDR/Long Cycle Super Sets: 10 x (LCCJ: 2 24kg x 8 & 1 song DDR)

Saturday (starting to feel a little better):
For n = 10 to 1
Front squats: 2 24kg x n
Pullups: BW x n
Double Swings: 24kg x 10
Next n

Crush Pushups: 3 x 20
Front snatches: 24kg x 3 x 10
Side snatches: 24kg x 3 x 10

Finished the loop in 16:12, and the entire workout in 32:10 (not trying to max out speed on the double snatches).

55 Front Squats, 55 Pullup, 100 double swings, 60 pushup, and 120 snatches. Not bad for a 1/2 hour workout. The pullups were really hard - really had a hard time "centering" them. Probably a problem with thoracic extension endurance.

Sunday: Long Cycle: 2 24kg x (2,6,10); 2 32kg x 5 x (2,5,8)
Double Swings: 2 32kg x 5 x 15; 1 x 25

Looking forward to a strong training week.

Weight: Scary, weighed in at 172, even though not feeling lean.

My video camera, with lots of good video, is not starting. Bummmer.
