    Page 32 clearly states the specific number of reps for each minute of the cadence test.

    To the OP, if your form is good then I see no problems using the VWC template to practice getting proficient with your snatch technique. Practice definately makes perfect, and if you plan on attending an RKC in the future...............you need to be perfect.

    You may not be technically working at your VO2max. But judging by your last post, that's not your goal. Keep doing what you're doing. It looks like you're on the right track on reaching YOUR personal goals.

    Default Second 15/15 workout

    Last night. 7 rep cadence with the 16 kg. I managed to get all 80 sets, but it completely kicked my ass. 3 new blisters. 120 bpm pulse within a couple minutes of the last set. I'm not sure I want to do that again!

    I'm only going once a week (Wednesdays) which seems like more than enough for now. I'm also working out 4 days a week around that Wednesday, which is my most intense day.

    Y'know.....I don't think you have to do 80 sets the first time you work at a given cadence.

    Am I correct in assuming the OP already has some kind of insane endurance?

    Default Not really

    More determination than insane endurance, really. I felt like stopping at 40 sets, but figured I could reach 50. When I hit 50, I thought I could make it to 60. At 60 I figured if I hit 65 and was still keeping my 7 reps in the 15 second limit, I could do the 15 sets to 80. It was still a tough climb though.

    May I suggest stopping at the 40 when you feel like it, and cycling up to 80 over 4-6 weeks using increments? You sound like you have great reserves of willpower, but in terms of recovery for the SSST, training like us mere mortals for a bit might help.

    Default Agreed

    I think I'd be overtraining in about two weeks, otherwise. I'm not sure my nervous system could take that every Wednesday.

    If you don't want to tear off your blisters try cutting the tops off of a pair of tube socks and putting them over your calluses. It came in the packet that they send you for the RKC. Does anyone here have that page on their computer? I was tearing off calluses twice a week and working on torn calluses all of the time when I first started doing VWC. Now, since I've been doing the sock thing I haven't torn any since.

    You definately have a lot of drive to push yourself extremely hard. You might want to shift down a gear or two, or overtraining could very easily happen.

    And I don't want to hear anymore I'm 45.....blah, blah, blah stories. Because you are in incredible shape. You put most people half your age to shame as far as your conditioning goes (including me).

    Default Thanks

    I appreciate the kind words. I have to say that this forum remains one of the best of the 'net because of the quality of its members. Thanks again.
