Self Made Masterpiece in Upper Body Strength, ROAR
Today was overhead squats, lots of them, yippee-kye-aye-aye! I sometimes tend to shy away from these shoulder-killing monsters, but end up feeling a lot of LOVE for them in the end. NOT too much love, but just a teaser to leave me coming back for more. And just like the snatch, the OHS is incredibly empowering; it’s one way to make this shorty feel more giant-like.
I started my workout:
500M row 500M (ish) run 3X
20 Weighted lunges (with 25# plate overhead) x4
10 OHS (here we go!) 65# 15 push ups on the bosu ball (the half one) 20 V-Ups x 5
10 Kettlebell swings 26# 10 Kettlebell snatches 20# Weighted sit ups with 26# KB x2 (I might have done more, but I was in a daze at this point & they were getting pretty sloppy)
I realized while doing the KB work that my shoulders were not agreeing with my decision to work on KB sntaches. The lunges, OHS & KB work was too much & I felt week & in bad form. ROokie mistakes.
