    Default Back to ETK PM

    Overtraining and slighly off snatch technique has led to a shoulder setback, so was with much chagrin that it was recomended to me (by RKC II Rolando Garcia) to go back to the PM for a time. I must say, after re-reading ETK and watching the DVD (still laughing at most of the parts I laughed at the 1st time I saw it) I am actually excited to start it again. 2 days of TGUs and 2 days of swings will be just what the Dr. ordered in order to keep up my conditioning and to get my shoulders in shape for 6 months of prep for a 2010 RKC cert course.

    That can be frustrating. I had a similar situation. I had gone through the PM with a 16 KG bell, and started PM with 24 Kg. My shoulder gave me problems, so I had to drop back to the PM iwth 16 Kg. By re-doing it, I've actually improved my conditioning and decided to go to 20 Kg when I move up this time.

    Well, this is my second set back.....but the 1st one was not my fault...I slid into second playing baseball last summer and tore my right shoulder labrum. I was pressing the 2 pood for 3 reps, having already finished 5x5 RoP ladders with the 24 KG. This setback is much less eerious, but more irritatiing, as it was my fault.

    I never figured out what I did, but going back to the PM has made it disappear...finally.

    What worked for me was just to take my time...not to rush my progress...I have had my share of set backs over the last year...and am now just starting to reap the rewards of what I have learned...Today after my Light Day Practice...I Bottoms Up Pressed for the first time a 20kg bell....and now I am back on RoP aftyer many weeks of the PM...life is good!...Dennis

    I sarted with a 16kg in Jan09 and worked up to complete the ROP doing 5x5. I admit I did rush throught the PM with the 16 because I wanted to be a Man Among Men. I have just recently become interested in mastering the TGU. I have been doing PM with a 24kg, and I love it. I feel I get just as good of a workout doing the PM as I do with the ROP. If you are just starting to train with KBs, don't underestimate the effectiveness of the PM.
