Getting a good training session in on the road is very challenging. On long road trips, it is important for me to plan ahead so I know what my sessions are going to be. Sometimes, you never know what you are going to get at the hotel gym or what kind of equipment you can borrow from the home team.
Today, I got my training session in at the strength and conditioning facility of the Minnesota Wild. Unlike many of the other hotel gyms and other facilities in the league, they have some kettlebells.
The last time that we were here (back in October I believe), I cleaned and press the 40k bell. Although I struggled with it a little, I still got it under the RKC standards. Today, it was much easier. Looking ahead, I don’t think the 44k is unrealistic.
I also performed a pull up with the 24k bell with my foot hooked through the handle. I was able to bring my neck up to the top which I was really excited about as this has been a struggle for me.
I also did a 5 minute snatch test. This is the second time that I have done this since my RKC in August. Honestly, these are starting to get easier or maybe I am becoming more efficient at these.
Here was my workout:
1-Arm Clean and Press- 5×1 ea. Arm. First set- I got the 40k with my right arm easily, left arm couldn’t get it, I then completed 4 singles each arm with the 32k.
Pair with Pull Up- 5×1. First set done with the 24k. Following 4 done with bodyweight only.
5 minute snatch test in 4:50. I put the bell down once. I went 20L/20R/10L/10R, put the bell down. Then, I went 10L/10R/5L/5R/5L/5R.
Easy 20 minute stationary bike- manual resistance- HR 125-135.
