day 2450 – shoulder stability

i was off olympic lifting for more than week and i feel i’ve forgotten the tech and timing. private session had me stick with really light weights and concentrate much more on shoulder stability within pain free range. the high volume snatches of triples in power, half and full positions gasses me out real quick. the cleans surprised both coach and i; he let me work up to eighty percent. finished the session off with some heavy back squats and then i was off to my routine sprints. i appreciate just being back on the platform – just me and the barbell

day 2439 – driveway jumps

a morning-heavy day with my olympic lift tech session before doing sprints and kicks with the squad. moving my boxes out to the driveway so i can stack it up to thirty inches and not hit my head on the ceiling. the rest of my lifts were done inside the garage. i always dread the runs, but the ten sprints wasn’t nearly as hard as the eight that i started with. it’s rewarding to see cardio improvements with each training. i did all that on half a piece of plain toast and only got home for lunch at 1:45pm

day 2434 – interval sprints

doing sprints must be one of the biggest april fools joke i’ve ever agreed to because running has always been something i dreaded. i must admit i regretted it the moment i agreed to this plan, but i’m glad i did it with a crew that pushes me and keeps me accountable. these are some of the trainings i need to get my fitness back up and help with my nonexistent cardio. i’m committed to keep training extra hard so i can take my game up a notch and be ready to take it to the next level once this quarantine is over
