RKC Training Log: Week 1

If you don’t know, I’m training for the RKC in April.  Each week I will be detailing the exact workouts that I am following to give you an idea of how I’m preparing and provide a roadmap for other looking to follow a similar training path.

As of right now my plan is relatively simple. During the week I am doing two twenty minute sessions in the morning of technique work. Sunday will be a longer dedicated workout, with a mix of complexes and technique stuff.  And at least once a week I will be performing a variation of the snatch test to measure progress.

The plan looks decent on paper, but week one already threw me a curveball. Been battling a bit of a back issue the last few days so I wasn’t able to get in my longer session this weekend.  No worries though, still saw noticeable improvement in the TGU and snatch department.

Here’s how my schedule broke down:

20:00 AMRAP
A) swings @53 x20
B) TGU L/R @35 x1, 2, 3….
