And the Beat Goes On...

Worked on TGU's and swings again today. Keep reading everyone's blogs and their experience/joy/self torture with Kenneth Jay's VO2 Max workout. So naturally, I'd love to try it. But I know I should wait. Again, I will focus on what I can do...

So, why not combine the VO2 max workout with swings. I can do swings, atleast I can for now. Today went something like this:

A-TGU's w/ 24kg
10 minutes --> 14 per side.

Felt good, a challenge today. Monday's workout must have worked on me a little bit. I did have the ambition of a double TGU with the 24 kgs until I picked the one up. Oh well, I now have a goal to train for.

B-2 Hand Swings w/24kg
15 sec on, 15 sec off: 9 reps x 11 sets = 99 reps


C-Swings w/ 16kg
15 sec on, 15 sec off: 9 reps x 36 sets = 324 reps

I'm tired now. No mas, senior.

Did about 10 sets with eyes closed. Trying to focus, trying to get perfect. I'll keep trying...

It's about 13 hours later, elbows and body feel okay throughout most of the day. We'll see what the morning brings.

That's it for now.

cool dude, no reason at all you can't do that with swings. its a great workout with either move. you'll be doing snatches soon enough too.

Good call Tim. The elbow thing takes a while to heal up. There will always be time to do snatches in the future.

Mark and Doug, thanks guys. That has been the hardest thing for me to realize. Snatches will come again. I'm sure i'm still doing too much. Not too bright sometimes.

But, everyday I learn a little more. I guess in the grand scheme of things I have the rest of my life to snatch and press - if I take care of myself...

Again, thanks for all your help and advice. I appreciate both of you.

Hey Tim, take it one day at at time. You will get better,although sometimes it feels like an eternity especially if you are a training junkie!!!
