Quick training today

Had a fairly large biopsy taken off my right shoulder blade area yesterday so wanted to skip any Get-ups or exercises that might rub that area.

Prep - GFM
24 kg 1/2 kneeling windmill progressions and 1/2 kneeling bent press x 2 of each movement
24 kg Snatch 4+4 at the top of the minute x 20 minutes
stretch etc...

Simple and Sinister...

Happened to pull out my copy of simple and sinister by Pavel yesterday and was reminded of how much gold is in that book....

Mix it up 

For some reason the end of the year this year is very busy - multiple projects due at the same time and the Holiday to get ready for....  training time has been short to non-existent.

Today
Prep - foam roller, GFM
24 kg Get-up + x 1+1

36 kg x 21 minutes
alternating sets of:
36 kg Swing x 5+5
And
36 kg Clean+ Press+Squat x right and left
10 sets of each total

36 kg felt good but my consistency has to pick up for my conditioning
But it was 100 swings total and 10 of each of the other lift x each hand - not bad.
