H/R 56 - back down a little but not fully. I suspect after this evening it won't be back down fully tomorrow either.
Amosov Basic Re-charge - 10 Reps
Switched pumps + jandas for roman chair sit-ups, skipped the press ups. I used to do the first exercise in the sequence years ago for anyone who has Super Joints. I couldn't keep my legs straight but was at the point where I could touch the ground behind my head. These days my back is REALLY tight, and I lament on times gone by as I watch my feet dangle WAY up in the air :(
DL - 90 x 1, 95 x 1, 100 x 1, 105 x 1, 107.5 x 9
Was in great form here, pulling really well. I did think about going on up to 110 but I had my eye on the LCCJ race later on.
LCCJs 24kgs 5 L/R x 9 mins 48 (100 reps)
All I can say is that it is incredible what you can do when there is something pushing you on. Last time I set the gym boss at 2 mins 30 each "set" (I don't know why either.) and my pacing was way off. This time I set it at 1 min with the intention of doing 10 reps per min. I was out pacing it a bit all the way and "rested" in lockout on my left for a while at the end of each minute. At 80 reps in just under 8 mins I so wanted to quit. I'd topped Franklin's numbers and thought it was good enough. But I thought no - do 90 and then stop. Then I scrapped those in and I had just over 1 min left. I thought - there's no way you can come this far and not finish it!! I had doubts I could do 5 with my right, but managed to knock them out - the left was "easy" and I did them fast.
Thank F**K that's over - that's the hardest test I've done with a KB so far. Another motivating factor, I didn't want to have to come back and try it again.
"Enjoyed" the pushing each other Franklin, what blogs are all about - it's your turn now!!
