Max VO2

Well, I am at it again with this plan. During the TSC I did 2 rounds, lasting on 30 rounds or 15 minutes before my back felt the tightness. So I was curious today with this new snatch concept (I know, yet another) how it would go.

Snatch 15/15seconds, work/rest
16/5/5x40

For volume sakes this is not much. Ideally I should do 7 or even 8 (all out) reps/15 second interval. However, I want to build slowly and with form. After all slow and steady wins the race. In the prior two experiences I went for 6 and 7 reps and that just did not work. So, the report is my low back feels great. I was aware at around 31 but nothing that stopped me and I could have done the 50 set or 25 minute version. To say the least I am pleased.

Pistols (heavy day)
40kg/1/1x3

By far my strongest performance with this weight! I can see and feel my strength is coming along Strong.

The wisdom of a good program design, with good progression, listening well and consistency.

16kg 5/5 confused me.
