Log of mediocrity
Thought I would start logging my training here. Sorry for the long postÖ
Current lifts (short term goal) everything is in Kgs:
Deadlift: 230 (250)
Stiff legged deadlift: 220 (dont really care)
Oly squat: 160 (180)
Front squat: 130 (150)
Clean: 110 (120)
Jerk: 115 (130)
Snatch: not done one in a couple of years (90)
I have done a couple of u90Kg strongman comps this year, will be doing a couple next year but also want to do a weightlifting comp and maybe a powerlifting comp if I can ever be bothered to bench press lol.
Here are a couple of recent vids from the last comp I did in September:
Deadlift: 210, 220, 230 (equal PB)
I have done some work since then Iím hoping for at least 240, maybe a cheeky 250. Pulled my right glute a little from locking out a SLDL so will have to re-test my conventional deadlift soon.
OH medley: 80Kg log, 44Kg dumbbell, 80Kg fixed axle
Rushed the second log, tried to take a breath when the log was racked, this threw me off for the rest of the event.
Oly Squat: worked up to 5x5 @ at 112.5.
Felt nice, slowed decent which has helped to keep balance on the way up. Tend to fail all my squats forward so Iím trying to fix this.
Clean: Worked to 7 singles at 85kg
Having to re-learn parts of this, I was originally taught to crash the bar into my legs on the second pull. As a result I was always chasing the bar forwards. A couple of PB power cleans attempts have been failed previously even though the bar had hit my clavicles ha ha!
Only time for a quick one tonight.
Glad you are posting here. I look forward to following your log.

Only time for a very quick one this morning. This week has been mental!
Power clean doubles:
First pull was a bit quicker without crashing the bar into my legs for the second pull. Getting there...
Sunday 27 Nov
First set was a bit ropey but improved a lot after that. slowed decent down which helped.
10 triples at 40Kg
Squats feeling nice starting to get used to 5's. Snatch balance only light but good to get a bit of work in.
Weds 30 Nov
80Kg: a few
90Kg: a few more
slowed the clean down as i was catching the high and riding them down.
When you say Oly Squat is that a high bar back squat? Thanks!
Fri 2 Dec:
Ab roll outs:
Second week of squatting 3 times a week. So far so ordinary :)
There has been a distinct lack of pressing of late. this will change.
