    Everyone,

    I am still around and training. For the first time in over a year, I had decided to stop performing a program. While Clean Em Up from MKM is an excellent program, I have felt like it wasn't for me.

    The ultimate goals for me for 2020 is to practice the original PM with Snatches and Bent Press. Why? With my heaviest KB at 32kg, I want to snatch that bad boy and to get strong with the BP and eventually do this with the 32 as well. After that, I would like to run ROP again with the 28 and transition into ROTK.

    With these goals in mind, MKM has taken me off the path from strength. A few months ago, I was able to press my 32 for 2 SOLID reps per side, but I could not even get the weight off from the rack position last week. Very shameful, IMO.

    I started Hector G's Survival Guide this week. It is a 6 day a week double KB program that switches grinds of presses/squats using Plan Strong principles one day, and ballistics with density protocols the next day. I'm 3 days in and loving it with the heavier bells again.

    After 4 full weeks of this, then the Original PM will be practiced religiously.

    I sprinkled in 5 sets with the 24s randomly. Almost feel like this is the weight I should’ve chosen.

    De-load week complete. Final week is next with Hector increasing the volume to cap things off.

    I couldn't push the density with this one today. Definitely started to lose power on that last set. AH well...I'm sad that I wont be doing double snatches for a long time. My plan is to start the Original PM next week with Snatch and Bent press until I own the 32. After that, I do plan on completing ROP once again with the 28kg. Once that is complete, I would like to perform ROTK with the 24s (my heaviest double set I have), and my goal is to at least start this program in 2020

    Not a bad program when you’re in between plans. 4 quick weeks building up some volume.

    Onto the OPM
