Eric's Training Log
 
I would not have believed that a three week vacation, with no strength training involved in said vacation, would result in such a lack of strength, but it did result in a lack of strength. This is my attempt to bring my numbers back up and beyond.

I mostly do the Olympic lifts and the squat variations. My short term goal is to get a body weight snatch, body weight cj, 2x body weight bs, 1.5x body weight fs, and body weight ohs. My goals after these goals are, obviously, to increase those lifts.

Hello and welcome!

Not trying to make a huge buying plug, but if you haven't read Greg's book yet, its an amazing resource of information!

Also, I found that video taping my lifts, then immediately watching them off the camera helped me immensely in getting my form down and getting the weight up. I put 40 pounds on my max clean and jerk just through form!

Thanks, George. I have not read Greg's book, but from what I have read online about it, it sounds like a phenomenal read.

My form on the snatch and the clean and jerk could definitely use a lot of work. I will try to record myself during my next training session. Also, would you recommend attempting a 'heavy' snatch or clean and jerk sans bumper plates? The gym I attend does not have bumper plates, which makes it hard, nay impossible, to dump the bar if I had to dump the bar.

Without bumpers it is really hard to safely dump the weights. When I travel and work out in a gym without bumpers I work triples with weights I feel comfortable controlling down.

Hope that helps.
