I spent the day in Pennsylvania yesterday. Worked with my trainer to map out how to attack the "Beast Challenge," as well as the RKC II.
I learned a ton of assistance exercises for my quest.
We worked on bodyweight squats, front plate squats, kettlebell goblet squats and deep ass to achilles front barbell squats. Legs aren't sore at all today but I am well aware that they were worked yesterday.
Also worked on better pressing explosion. Think speed is what I was taught. Very good lessons followed by a lunch of free range beef, raw milk, root vegetables.
Today, the speed translated into additional power on my 36 KG kettlebell press today. Did 6 sets of 1 rep, failed on 7. Still, I was strong.
