250 Reps Per Workout :)

kettlebellToday I had interesting training. I did jerk 2×32 kg. I did 15 set 1,5 minutes each. Total 250 reps. The rest between set was 3 min. So my results by sets was: 15/16/16/16/16/16/17/17/17/17/17/17/17/18/18. It was not very hard but 250 reps per workout it’s very interesting :). Next time I’ll try to do 250 reps per 10 sets..
By the way, with me same training has two my students. One of them did jerk 2×32 kg 232 reps in 13 sets (his body weight 80 kg). Other guy (maybe you remember him – Roman Kozlov, 12 years old guy, 50 kg of body weight) did jerk 2×16 kg 231 in 9 sets…
I was funny training…
