'heavy' day

In ETK, Pavel prescribes a pressing format of a light, medium and heavy and heavy day. Today was my heavy day; heavy volume. Actually this is the first time in months that I have actually completed a heavy day. Not sure I actually did a heavy day last spring when preparing for the level 2 certification.

Upon completing 5 sets of 5 rung ladders, I should be ready for to move up to the next size kettlebell (in theory). Instead, I plan to add a little more volume perhaps an extra set or 2 before I move up. Why? Just because I completed the plan doesn't mean it was comfortable. I think the groove could use a little more work. The set will be added to the light and medium days as well.

Now Hear This:
I finished some reading and practice today that got me thinking about how to approach my training/practice as well as training with clients either individual or group classes. Not too terribly different but I have decided to change the format slightly. What this means to you is...more Turkish Get Ups!

TGU - Step 2/3 (will work these again tomorrow)

Clean and Press 24k 5x12345 ladder
Swing 40k 5 x 20 + pull up x 5

That looks like an excellent session. I'm about to get a bigger bell.

Another 5 rung session or 2 and I will move back up to 32k. Just keepin' the groove real!

I've been practicing cleans and swings with the bigger bells. Finding a good groove.
