Sunday I woke up with some kind of nag in the middle of my back, so I decided to switch around the Jerk sessions this week.

Bulgarian bag spins @17kg x25 e.s

Push ups @12,5kg x8,8,6,6 (I used to be really good at push ups but these days I really suck, so I thought I should re-introduce them in my training, for a while at least… I originally thought the bag was only 9kg, but eventually found out it was 12,5kg)

Cleans @2x28kg x21

EDT x15min reverse lunge with 45kg sandbag: x45 e.s

Hip thrust @45kg x15

Farmers  RDL @2x32kg x1min (x26 reps)

Did not feel like doing this yesterday after the half marathon…

Hip thrust @81kg x12,12

EDT 15min: reverse lunge @35kg x65 e.s The sandbag across my shoulders felt like a low bar placement, really nice. I tried to avoid dropping the bag too many times… It’s a bitch to shoulder again 🙂 I did the lunges with a forward inclination to hit the glutes and hamstring more, as mentioned by Brett Contreras in this article. I sure can feel the difference now, as I usually have always done lunges with an uprigth posture.

So lately I have noticed that my running endurance has increased quite nicely, and that I probably need to address other qualities to improve my long cycle.

I used the deck of cards as my basis for circuit training, and set my timer to 20 min. Followed by a trail run for 20min and a swim in the ocean.

Since I was trying this for the first time and I do not want to impact my kettlebell long cycle training negatively (it’s called assistance training for that very simple reason) I used light weights.

  • Jokers, Aces: 35kg sandbag shouldering x1 e.s
  • Kings: Hip thrusts with sandbag @35kg x10
  • Queens: swing @36kg x10 e.s
  • Jacks: get up sit up x10
  • Hearts: 1 arm row @28kg e.s
  • Diamonds: Ice skaters e.s
  • Spades: Bulgarian bag spins @17kg e.s
  • Clubs: Reverse lunge from deficit with BG bag e.s

All in all a very invigorating training session, doing variety exercises. I’ll know if it was wise or dumb tomorrow…
