2 PRs in two days

[ Just about to do a 1 armed Jerk with a 70#/32kg KB in the photo above. ]

Yesterday did a 2 minute set of LCC&Js with the 70#/32kg KBs. Previous best was 15 in about 1:30, which left me quite spent. Paced myself better and did 9 reps a minute, so I ended up with 18 reps. Aboout a 90% effort. If it was a contest, I would have been able to go 3 or four more reps. Very humbling to think of the best GS competitors going the full 10 minutes and doing 80-95 reps... Did another 2 minute set with a pair of 53#/24kg KBs, and a pair of 44#/20kg KBs. Did some 1 arm LCC&Js with the 53#/24kg KB to end up the session. Back felt a bit tight and fautigued.

Today I did a posted KB challenge of doing Jerks with two 35#/16kg KBs for 5 minutes. Ended up with 102. Had to put KBs down for about 10 seconds half-way through due to some back stiffness (probably due to the fautigue of yesterday's LCC&J workout. Did some 1 arm Jerks and swings with a 70#/32kg KB after a short rest. Needed it, as my HR was quite high after my 5 minute Jerk test.
