Happy 49th Birthday No-Brainer...49 sets of 25 reps

In celebration of my 49th birthday this weekend I did 49 sets of 25 reps w/16kg "on the minute"  That equals about 38 sec work/22 sec rest.  I did not do them consecutively though.  I did 15 sets with my first client (along with some snatches), I did another 15 with my second set of training partners (along with a different "49 theme swing routine and some presses), and I ended with 19 more set in my 2 hour of training.

I would have done them consecutively but that would have meant 49 minutes straight and my first appt is only 30 min, my sec 45 min, and my third another 30 min.....besides I couldn't do that to anybody else!  So I pieced it together.

BUT I do have to say that it felt harder than the 1000 24kg reps I did a few weeks ago!  Once I got to my calculator I discovered it came out to 1225 reps in 49 min!  And it felt like it!  Now I gotta go pack for St Paul!

See ya!

I sort of did this yesterday, but not being as bad ass as you I adjusted.

First 10 sets did 25 w/16
the rest 39 was 20 w/16 work=rest

After the first 10, I was gassed so I had 2 choices. Go down to a 14k and keep with the 25 or stay at 16k and lower reps. I decided on the latter this time, but will do the 25 reps w/14 next is a whole month I have to work through the magic 49, right?

Happy Birthday to my favorite Strong Woman!

I was hard! (in a good way of course!) Not sure if I could have done it straight through...that day! Everyday is different though!
