Session 3 with Issac
We started off with a quick warmup and got right into cleans. He says everything is looking better but I still need work on my hip movement and getting under the bar. I am going to try to fit in some bar work this week and concentrate on getting the movement down.
Next up was bench. His first comment was "hmm, bodybuilder".
All I can say is that once he showed me how to set up it feels like a completely different lift. I look forward to seeing how this will impact my numbers. Did a few sets and worked up to a decent weight. After that he had me do a few speed sets. Finally he uttered the dreaded word...conditioning.
The circuit was 135 x 15 followed by 20 squats with 20 lb DBs. Rest period was 1 minute, total of 4 sets.
I wasn't able to get all the reps on the last two bench sets but managed to gut out the squats. I can definitely tell that my conditioning has improved since a few weeks ago as I did not die. As I write this I can feel the DOMS starting so it should be nice and painful tomorrow.
Oh, and almost zero back pain!
