Beyond Max, 2:1
Mark and I started training on Mondays instead of Tuesdays, which means it's an additional weekly workout for me. Usually I get two days of recovery from Sat-Tues, but now I only get one....the verdict is still out to whether or not this is a good thing. Anyway...
Typically we train Max which means I have quite a few options. I'm actually working up to training a cycle with the 14kg, but I don't feel ready yet. Using the 12kg for traditional 8/8 (15/15) is a workout for sure, but it doesn't really push me in anyway.....Beyond Max....
I'm only including a short video, as it's not really instructional. It simply shows how I combine pacing my intervals along with Mark so we both get the workouts we need. In this Beyond Max workout we did a total of 40 sets (15/15). I did the first ten set warming up with 7 reps each side. That left 30 sets. I didn't feel like going faster so I stayed with the 7 rep per 15 pace and instead of switching hands, or resting every other interval, I continued on with 7 more snatch reps on the same side, working two intervals and resting one. I repeated this ten times to total my 40 sets for the workout.
Beyond Max 2:1 (no hand switch)
7/7 x 10 sets
14/14 x 10 sets
280 snatch reps, 20 minutes
I may repeat a version of this workout on Saturday with either 8's (16/16), or maybe a 3:1 work/rest ratio with no hand switch. (21/21 or 24/24 per 45 sec work/15 sec rest)
