Roots Level 2

Tonight I did Roots level 2 with my 16kg bell. It was tough.  I took a few more breaks than they did on the video, but overall did a really good job of completing the workout.  I didn't learn the snatch via the high pull, so it's never really felt 'right' to me. However, tonight I started to get the hang of it.  I did have to lighten up to the 12kg for a few reps on the high pull. I couldn't believe how it really got my heart rate up!  It actually made the snatches seems almost easy - lol.  Unfortunately, my hands were killing me. I can tell it's been a long time since I've used my bells because I was very sensitive to the friction.  I am looking forward to when that will stop.

Anyway, I am really enjoying the workouts so far. I'm looking forward to tomorrow.  I'm going to stick with the Roots workout for  the next few days before moving up to the next series in the rotation.

good night!

Well we can be in hand hurting hell together :) I am still trying to get my snatch form down. Maybe im doing it right but I still am banging my wrist and lots of friction when I come all the way down.
