A new training partner for a weekly Kettlebell session

Monday January 19, 2009

I have a new training partner, Max Schreiber, for a weekly Kettlebell session on Mondays. We started today with a solid one hour session.

Afternoon Kettlebell Session:

Z-Health: Neural Warm-up Level 2 (Dynamic Joint Mobility Drills)

24kg x 1 x (5,10,15,20,25,20,15,10,5) Two hand swing pyramid
24kg x 5 x 20 Roundabout swings (5left/5both/5right/5both) @ 2mins/set
24kg x 1 5-rung snatch ladder
24kg x 1 3-rung snatch ladder
24kg x 1 x 5/5 Front squat
Double 24kg x 1 x 5 Front squat

Double 24kg Chain: 6 chains @ 1min/chain
A1: Double C&P
A2: Double Snatch
A3: Double Front Squat

It felt great to really work the kettlebell ballistics. Max had no problem keeping up with the exception of the snatches (too much arm and not enough hip snap) where I had him perform multiple 2-rung ladders to keep his volume up. Given his natural strength and youth (he can already press double 32s for a triple) its going to be a real challenge to keep up with him.

Weight: 184 1/2 lbs
Total Volume: 17100 lbs
