Danish VO2 workout

After reading Rif's blog yesterday I decided to use Kennth Jay's :15/:15 protocol for my interval training today.

24kg snatches
46 sets of 7 reps per arm
15 sec on
15 sec off
322 snatches total in 22:45

There were a couple of sets of 8 reps in there, but who's counting?

This thing sneaks up on you. The first few sets were no big deal. The last few are sheer torture. I think that for a little bit I could get 50 sets, but today I stopped when I started getting sloppy & slow.

The protocol is for 16kg for men, but I felt pushy at the beginning.

it definitely do sneak up on you and the start is particularly understated.
