    Re: Saving Nothing for the Swim Back

    Thanks. I'm still not completely sure about the new forum, but I'll give it a try.

    Did a quick circuit this afternoon.

    20 kg KB
    2 times through for time.


    [ul]
    [li]5 cleans each arm[/li]
    [li]5 windmills each arm[/li]
    [li]5 half snatches each arm[/li]
    [li]10 pause goblet squats[/li]
    [li]10 figure 8's[/li]
    [li]5 push press each arm[/li]
    [li]10 plyo push ups[/li]
    [/ul]

    Total time: 15 minutes.

    NOTES: I'm really liking this program. It's nice and easy right now. Which is good. But I still get some work in. I'm not logging the warm ups, which are 10 face the wall squats, 10 halos and 10 pumps alternating exercises for 10 minutes.
    I also have started "practicing" clean & presses and snatches in anticipation of Rite of Passage. 5 on each arm for 5 minutes.

    Thanks Tony.

    I'm hoping to slowly build a home gym when we get out to Utah. We'll have more space in the house we're renting, so it might actually be feasible.

    Notes: I weighed myself the other day, and I've lost weight. I'm at 163, which I find kind of amazing. I think it's from all the swings. If you think about it, I'm doing a ton of swings.

    I also did a couple of additional exercises today. In addition to the C&P and Snatches, I also did one set of SLRDL's (with the weight on the same side as the working leg), Maxercist row (a one legged row), Figure 8 to a Hold and a reverse lunge while passing the KB under the opposite leg (I forget what it's called). I also got an Iron Gym the other day so I can start adding pull ups to the routine.

    Re: Saving Nothing for the Swim Back

    Nice swinging.I wish I could drop some weight. Since I was released to train the first of the year my diet has went to crap. I've went from 189 to 215. Granted I have put on a lot of muscle but some body fat has come with it. I think when I finish my FBT next cycle I will take a few cycles and do a 2 day a week template with a lot of prowler and conditioning work to cut down some fat before moving on to a new template. I really want to try the rest pause challenge but I want to cut some fat first.

    I did the same thing and it is weird, but funny too, when you get to listen to all the young
    whipper snappers and how hard and busy their lives are.
    and its always way more time consuming than you would like.

    My diet isn't that great right now. I'm not sure how I'm doing it, though I think the swinging has something to do with it.
    I'll eventually get back to 5/3/1, but right now I need something simple. I think the ETK was a great pick, especially when I start with the C&P 4 times a week, snatches once a week and swings 3 times a week. I expect to see some nice results. And after that, I'll probably move onto Dan John's 40 Day Easier Strength. Once that is finished, I should be good to get back to 5/3/1 or something else.

    Thanks. I'm actually kind of disappointed with the Mudder. It was a great experience, but I want to give it a shot when the weather is a little friendlier. 50's and rainy was not fun.

    As for classes, next semester is when I'll actually get to listen to others. My classes are online right now, so everything is through the internet. Although the school I go to has a very large non-traditional population, so there aren't as many whipper snappers.

    Clean & Press + Pull Ladders
    3 x (1, 2, 3) x 16 kg

    Snatches
    5 minutes
    3 x 10@ x 16 kg

    NOTES: Not bad first day. I like that these workouts are short, but you still get a good amount of work in. Granted I won't be setting any powerlifting records with this, but I'm still getting stronger and my endurance is increasing.
    The ladders are a nice way to get a lot of work in without killing yourself. And I'm doing pull ups with each "rung" of the ladder.
    The snatches are no joke. I think eventually my goal will be to hit 100 within five minutes, though I will get there slowly. Also, I've learned that there really is no such thing a a fast or slow pace with swings and snatches. There's only the amount of reps you can do at a time.

    I like snatches but have resorted to DB snatches. I could never get the hang of KB snatches enough to avoid banging up my forearm.

    NOTES: The presses are coming along nicely. I think I've started to figure out the right groove for them. My cleans aren't always perfect, and I'm working on that as well. Lots of swinging.
    On a non training related note, my wife and I are going to see "Book of Mormon" tonight. I've heard it's hilarious. Should be fun.
    Also, we started to slowly pack last night. Not so much fun. Very glad that we've been purging over the past month or so. It will make moving that much easier.

I was spent. And the funny thing is, none of the stuff was ours. It was left over from the previous owners. And my wife has been living in this house for 9 years. It's messed up.

    Also, took a video of my C&P to get some feedback. Any would be appreciated.
