Snatches – volume and a modest PR

Sunday, August 19
1. 16kg swing set – 2:00. 34L/34R.
2. 16kg snatch set – 7:00. (12R,12R,14R,6R/6L,12L,12L,14R). 44/44. 88 total. PR.
3. 16kg snatch set – 3:00. (16R,7R/7L,16L). 23/23. 46 total.
4. 24kg swing set – 25/25.

The garage was over 95F, but I got to 7:00. Grip and forearm fatigue were the main enemies today, but there wasn’t a lot of unwelcome sliding around in my palms.  I am blessed that I can swing and snatch with my knee. We will see what a few months of swinging and snatching will do in the absence of any sort of jerks.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and given my moral support with my injury. It appears as if surgery will be the fix, and that means no jerks or squats for 4-6 months. However, I can and will make progress with swings, snatches, seated presses, pullups and pushups.

    Keep going forward and find a way to progress. That is the essence of kettlebells….Right?
