C2 – a love/hate relationship

Friday morning and I’m up quite early thanks to Liam. Two coffee and my usual yogurt with fruit and bran flakes and off to the gym. After yesterdays sprints I’ve decided it was time for the C2 (rower) again.
We go back a long time, and I always loved/ hated it. It make me work so hard, makes my legs go wobble, forearms burn, grip ache and put my heart where my tongue normally begins. But afterwards it’s all worth it, and when getting in the habit of being on the C2, it’s easy to feel the improvement it bears to other areas of my training.
So we have a hate/love relationship.
Today was no exception.

C2:
2000m = 8.48

Snatch:
2x 5x 15
3x 20
OH Squats (ATG):
2x 5x 15
Cleans:
2x 5x 15
2x 5x 20
Front Squat:
2x 5x 20
2x 5x 30

Abs:
2x 20 Decline Obliques
2x 10 Incline dragon flags
Back:
2x 20 Back raises
2x 20 Leg raises
2x 20 Side raises
2x 20 Back raises/ swissball
Lifts were sparsely and measly. I failed my fourth snatch at 20kg, which shouldn’t have been a problem at all. I guess it’s just one of those days, plus my elbow keeps annoying me and the pain from the forearm transfer into my grip. So I’m kind of lost until my elbow starts behaving.

If you’re reading this during the weekend, and don’t know what to do (or if to do anything), here is a small challenge for you: Do 100 Squats during either saturday or sunday.
Just pretend you’re gonna take a seat on the invisible low couch and stand back up again. It doesn’t have to involve extra weight either. Bodyweight is a good start. Just do it and I promise you, your jeans will be happy!
Me – I’ll be doing them + muay thai and running in the hills. Have a great weekend!
