Paleo Challenge Day 9
Tuesdays are my day! For the past couple of weeks I have been crushing my workouts. Not sure what it is but I am not going to complain. Today I PR’d my “Hang Clean and Jerk” (my favorite move, by the way – 95lbs). The link to the video is long – but just watch the first couple to get an idea. I am not as fast, but will get there one day. AND, the biggest deal was that I dropped the bar from above, like the second guy on the video… although, mine was a bit more dramatic and exciting.
I also crushed the WOD. Running and kettlebells. I did it in a much better time that I expected and did it with the 45 lb kettlebells again. LOVE the kettlebells. Today was easier than last week (maybe because I did it already) but also read an article today I found that compared kettlebell training to that of yoga – how it needs the mind/body connection. I wasn’t just throwing the KB overhead – I was really trying to focus on whole body and using my hips. My first set was the best – I did all 15 unbroken, but the next three were tough after the run. I decided to break them down into three sets of five good swings. I lost some time resting, but my form stayed good throughout.
