Max Par-tay

Mark and I have been training in our garage gym for-ev-er.....but now Girya is opening up, and becoming a much more comfortable place for us "hardcore" LOL! Mark has decided to call Girya home! So in addition to the two of us training there, together, Wednesday mornings, Mark invited his long time training partner, Nick, to train Max Vo2 with the three of us.

Tracy Max

5/5 x 4
6/6 x 6
7/7 x 16
8/8 x 34
total sets 60, 440 total snatches

Meg Max

5/5 x 10
6/6 x 10
7/7 x 10
8/8 x 32
total sets 62, 436 total snatches

Meg snatched 2 extra sets because she didn't do her halfway "happy dance" until set she had to do 62 sets in order for it to truly be a halfway happy dance.....I, on the other hand, was sucking enough wind by my 60th set and had nothing more to prove for the day!

Both of us set PR's snatching the 16kg for sets of 8. We had alot of making up to do for last week.

Mark is going to kill me, but I was not paying much attention to his, or Nick's workout....seriously, once I started 8's I barely said a word. Sorry (check his blog for details....yikes...don't be mad at me Sweetie, wink, wink).....but I did notice Nick sucking wind, down on his one knee after about set 20, knowing he better "man up" or else....LOL! (huh Meg, lol)

Next week I think we'll up the # of total sets along with increasing sets of 8......I hope.

you had an incredible day honey. seriously, seriously impressive.And very inspiring to say the least.I love training with you at Girya, it really is such a new beginning in our training and business life.Just gonna get better too.
You will do 80 sets of 8 in the max vo2 with the 16 kg and I don't know of ANY other female that can do that. It's on a par with Mark O Madsen's 80x8 with the 24 kgs. and he's a Gold Medalist.

Oh yeah, and Nick's gonna get in shape despite himself,lol.

The energy of all of us is what was incredible! Fun!

80 sets = 40 minutes of Max....yikes
