Training Week 8/8 – 8/14/10

August 17, 2010 § Leave a comment

Not much to report during this week of training.   Here’s my week:

Sunday, 8/8 – OFF

Monday, 8/9 – 10 minutes of: 2 deadlifts, 5 walking lunges, 10 swings, 20 seconds rest.  7 rounds.  Then 15 rounds of 15:15 20kg swings.  18 minutes total.

Tuesday, 8/10 – 12kg clean, press, pull ladders.  3 ladders, 3 rungs.  10 rounds of 20:15 20kg swings.  Time 23:30.

Wednesday, 8/11 – OFF

Thursday, 8/12 – OFF

Friday, 8/13 – really tough 1 hour spin class

So, as you can see, I’ve been a slacker.  More days off than usual, and just generally dragging.  I want to continue with kettlebell training but I desperately need to change it up for my own mental sanity.  I’ve decided to do phase 1 of New Rules of Lifting for Women again.  It’s a very basic program to improve deadlifts and squats.  Don’t mistake basic for easy though.  Since it’s only 2 days a week, I will still incorporate kettlebells.  The good news is that after over a year of having completed this phase, exercises like push ups and prone jackknives are much easier this time around.  🙂

Until next week, train hard!  🙂
