Goals, gymnastics, squats and grip

Two things happened last night. The first was discovering I can now hold a tuck planche and the other was looking back at the fitness goals I set earlier in the year.

The planche us v. cool and had to become part of tonight’s sessions. The goals were less so – I haven’t really done any of them yet. The list includes the levers, a 10sec handstand , 200 snatches in 10mins and snatching the 24kg for reps. There were also some around high rep swings but they were mainly a stepping stone to the snatches.

The levers will take a while but the snatches and handstand are doable by the end of the year. I need to start doing them though. They’ll need slightly different approaches. I’ll do handstands for at least ten minutes each day. For the snatches I’ll do a mix of light and long sets, heavy and short and pure leg strength.
