This is the first week of my re-started program. I re-started it because I got a heavier, more challenging kettlebell (40KG). The emphasis of the program I am currently performing is to increase my pressing strength and practice kettlebell swings/cleans/snatches.
Today is my easy practice day. Greasing the grove they say.
1 arm kettlebell military press with 40KG on each side followed by pull-up(s).
Started with 1 rep of each (presses & pull-ups); then 2 reps of each (presses & pull-ups).
*Repeated this 5 times.
Kettlebell snatches with 24KG.
Executed 15 reps each arm and take a short break. Then repeat. The first break was probably 20-30 seconds; but the last was probably closer to 2 minutes taking to a kid about cookies (at the park, turns out we both like peanut butter cookies:)
I wasn't watching the clock - just practicing outside until my hands told me it was a good time to stop. In fact my intent was to get 16 more reps, but knew that would regret it tomorrow. If you have practiced many snatches you will know what I mean. If you have not it means my hands took a beating and more reps would mean blisters tomorrow. I have learned this from experience. The experience of not listening to my hands in the past.
*Finished with 196 reps total = 98 each arm.
