week 2 Sinister Ladder
Well, sometimes you never really know how things are going down! Without looking at the notes/plan I wrote last week I still had a good idea about the Sinister weight ladder for this mornings workout. I knew all rounds done with the 20kg-32kg would be uphill (no downhill), but I couldn't remember if I also changed the size of the single bell rounds...so I chose to stay with the 16kg alternating and added one more complete round. (800 lb moved for each 50 rep round, 5 rounds instead of 4 = 4000 lb)
For the weight ladder compared to last weeks 50 reps/32kg, we did 80 reps today, 50 w/28kg last week, 60 today, 60 w/24kg last week, 50 today and 80 w/20kg, today 50 reps. So 5640 lbs moved versus 6440 in the same amount of time. A total of 8840 lb last week, 10,440 lb this morning...and that was just the first 25 minutes!
4 more Sinister rounds alternating these two variations
10 w/dbl 16kg's
3840 additional lbs moved
on to double snatches
48+48 (4 min/4min) ummm....not that easy!
6+6 (1 min/1min) ummm...not that easy!
30/30 reps (about 3 min total) ummm...not that easy!
Yikes. Today's practice with the 16kg reminded me of Mark's phrase;
"It's all easy 'til it's heavy!"
Ain't that the truth! Seriously. But maybe it had something to do with the 8 tons of weight I moved earlier?
Now I'm off to Sonora to become a "Junkie"! Teaching class at Brandi Loyd's Junkyard Training Center in the Sierras!
