4/8/14 Workout


It was a good workout today. I returned to the Tuesday/Thursday barbell & kettlebell class at the Glendale Sports Center. I really love this class but I haven’t been going because I probably haven’t yet been ready. But lately I’ve felt very solid so I figured it was time to give it a run. I haven’t done anything very powerful recently and I wasn’t sure how it would go with the kettlebell exercises. Can’t know ’til you try it though.

  • Squats: Worked up to 175 lbs. x 3 reps x 3 sets
    • Most weight I’ve done since the ACL
    • Can’t go quite as low as before but this is no surprise. I’m still below parallel.
  • Press: Worked up to 115 lbs x 3 reps x 3 sets
  • 2-handed Bent-over kettlebell rows: 16 kg x 10 reps – 20 kg x 10 reps – 28 kg x 10 reps
  • Kettlebell double push-jerk: 16 kg x 10 x 10 reps for 100 total reps.
    • Knee felt fine.
    • Technique is rusty.
  • Kettlebell 1-arm snatch: 16 kg x 20 reps (10 one hand then 10 in the other hand) x 5 sets for 100 reps.
    • Felt fine!
    • Probably will do a few tomorrow. I need to build some callouses on my hands.
  • Farmer walks: 32 kg

I’m very tempted to try a barbell power clean some time soon.

  • Road bike ride: About 20 miles
    • tempo ride
    • Done at a “comfortably challenging” pace.
    • Great day to ride. Felt good.
