I fully expected both sessions to be very difficult, but in a different way. I expected the morning session to be 2-3 exercises but pretty heavy, and the afternoon to be 4-5 exercises, a couple lighter and a couple heavier. The morning session felt like a marathon of training. I am not complaining one bit. He said he saw some things he wanted to fix, and wanted to “add new elements” to my training. He was really forcing me to work on my bottom position. Well, my pull too. Basically my entire snatch haha… I was wrecked after the morning session because if you follow my training at all you notice I mainly do single reps, sometimes doubles on the way up but rarely. This was all reps. So I was really tired in a different way.
The evening session was basically the exact same thing as the morning session- but for the clean and jerk…A lot of “remedy” exercises so to speak. It was still exhausting, just in a much different way than I am used to.
I’ve been training with Patrick Judge, Zach Krych, Caleb Ward, Donovan Ford, Holly Mangold (New York Jets Center Nick Mangold’s sister), Dean, Jackie Berube (at leat I thought it was her), Steph, and 1 or 2 other girls were in and out.
