Max VO2 PR


Today was Max VO2, 36/36 with the 20 kg. My rep count has been 15 reps per 36 seconds. First set I hit my 15 and locked out. I waited. I waited longer. I ripped out another snatch and the gymboss beeped. So I decided to bump up to 16 reps. I made it to 14 sets and really, really wanted to stop, but decided to suck it up and stop being a crybaby and made it to 18 sets before my grip was toasted and I started feeling a little 'funny', and I don't mean like Dennis Miller.
This was good, as my last PR was 16 reps with the 20 kg. but for only ten sets. Definitely feeling much stronger.
Afterward I did some abdominal and stability work with the TRX. I got the bright idea of doing pikes on two medicine balls. This worked not only my core but my shoulder stability as well.

  1. There are dozens of inappropriate things I could come up with referring to this picture, but as for reps and your ability to stop being a cry baby, right on Sargent. Go Go Go! Coffee is for closers! and if u and i went head to head in this MAX "V" 02, I want you to know would I win.
