1200 Swings...old school style
Thursday morning, before Mark and I left for NY and the Dr Oz show, I decided to look back to the very first workout I posted on my blog over 4 years ago and repeat it as a way of comemorating all of my hard work these past few years that have got me to this point. I tried to tape a short demo, but the batteries on the flip ran out just before I started to swing....here's what I did get on tape...
Here is the original post to a 1200 Swing workout,
As I re-read this training post I was surprised to see the 20kg used for much of the workout, as I rarely swing even the 16kg anymore. Even more surprising is my comment on how easy I felt the workout was, because it was far from easy this time! I'll have to write a blogpost about differences in how and why my training has evolved into what it is today...but one of the reasons is that I train as I teach, which means I swing and snatch probably 3 times more than I did 4 years ago.
This workout is all 2 hand swings, and all done equal work/rest ratio. If you think it sounds easy then try it and let me know how it goes for you! Old school, "Tracystyle"...jeans and all!
I finished the workout with "5 x 5" double bell swing/clean/press combinations, which I'll share and post another time.
