Side Presses and Snatches Thu 6/16 and Commentary


KB Side Press;
25# x 5/side x 2 sets;
35# x 5/side x 1 set;

35# KB Snatch x 5/side x 2 sets;

Too much “Ensalada con pollo” at lunch to do excessive movement, but it got the blood flowing.

My target is to do either swings or snatches everyday.  Primary goal is to do 2 weeks of KB Swings every other day for 15 minutes.  On weeks 3 and 4, I’ll take the highest number from the previous two weeks and try to whittle down how long it will take me to do them. (Example:  If after 2 weeks I can do 300 swings in 15 minutes, then in the 3rd and 4th week I’ll do 300 swings and try to get the time down less each day.

I’ve cut back on my food intake, by not snacking and by not grazing my way through lunch time.  I’m not starving nor feel like I’m on a diet, but  I’m hoping there is something to the claim that high rep KB workouts can help to burn fat.  Otherwise, I’ve donated my $20 to the “Biggest Loser” contest at work to be given to someone that will probably choose an unsustainable way to drop body weight anyway they can.  So far I’m down a few pounds.
