Kettlebells and grip

I’ve had a bit of a rest this week, I still went bouldering on Monday but stayed away from lifting stuff. I went to a bikram yoga class wife my wife on Thursday but that has been it. It was good to do something different, and a great choice for a rest(ish) week.

I was back at it today though with some kettlebell and grip work. I plan to do more of this style kettlebell work (high volume, little/no rest) as I work towards higher snatch numbers. I’m also going to start recording the amount of weight I shift in these lifts, it’s another good measure of progress and demonstrates the large amount of work you can get done when lifting moderate weights for high volume.
