The latest training

Hi Guys & Girls

So. The new training plan has begun!
Here are the first couple of weeks of training.

As I said last time, the program should make a bit more sense now that you can see it fleshed out.

Any questions, drop a comment.

I realise that this entry makes fairly dry reading but I have some good inspirational posts coming up so stay tuned.

Tuesday 1st January 2013:
Rest Day - also a long day at work

Wednesday 2nd January:
Conditioning
BB Complex

3 Bent Over Rows
3 Hang Cleans (full receive if possible)
3 Push press
3 Squats
3 Bar facing burpees with Deadlifts
x 6 mins complete as many rounds as possible 
Rest 3 mins
x 3 sets

Using a 45kg bar
1st Set - 4 rounds
2nd Set - 5 rounds
3rd Set - 5 rounds

Nice little conditioning session.
I decided to put this one together because I was disappointed with performance on the barbell complex I did on 31st December.  I believe that barbell complexes are excellent conditioning for grappling so I am determined to do more work with them, this was one such attempt.

I think in future sessions I might separate the Deadlifts and Burpees and hopefully add more weight.
