"How many thousand reps will it take?!"
Over the last four months I’ve logged in my training time, this is what I came up with:
75 workouts (usually about an hour in duration),
8+ hours of long cycle, w/2+ hours including long cycle with an extra swing
Average weight of 2,24kg bells
4993 total long cycle reps, total of 1,062,455 pounds moved (clean and jerk)
Assistance training consisted of:
5x5’s (:05 rack/:05 over head, anywhere between 1-3min)
Sumo Dead lifts from a deficit
The result? A 15 rep personal record and a Candidate for Master of Sport (CMS) ranking.
A special thanks to my coach Jason Dolby for all his help and guidance during this process. I look forward to the next step in the journey.
