Testing the Swing?

Well I haven't had quite enough of the 24kg. Today I thought we would test our swing, yep, the swing. Oh sure I've tested nonstop 12, 14, 16kg swings (over 1000 continuous w/16kg), but nothing really heavy. Swinging heavy can only last so long. I know I have done 200 20kg swing before but that was a long time ago! At the end of that workout I did 200 w/12kg, then the 16kg and then the 20kg...yikes (maybe I did 100 w/24kg...I'm checking.....yikes, I did 160 nonstop + 40! 9/27/08 check my old blog!)

Anyway, I don't have time to post details only to say that the testing was done in four 5 minute sets with 2 minutes rest inbetween. The weight was choice, but Meg and I both started with the 24kg. It was my plan to start with the 24kg, then go down, 20kg, 16kg, and 14kg, but the best laid plans, right?

I'll post more details and video tomorrow, but for now,

1st set
143 / 24kg

2nd set
200 w/16kg

3rd set
180 w/20kg

4th set
10 w/24kg
10 w/20kg
80 w/14kg
20 w/24kg
20 w/20kg
40 w/14kg
