O lift progress
 
Heavy training session tonight and i FINALLY got a serious monkey off my back.

I've been trying to snatch over 83kg since last year, I've overpulled, underpulled and everything in between with 84, 85 and 86kg in comps and training.

Tonight opened with 84 (PR), 87X, 87 (PR)

Clean and jerk 104, 108 (PR) 113 cleaned (PR) but missed the jerk

so three PR lifts and a 6kg PR total, not bad after being up early with only a few hours sleep and some annoying shit going on at work.

Also down from 98 to 95kg tonight so next comp i'll be back in the 94's

Nice work!
Some numbers are just harder to break through than others.
Right now I am battling jerking 100. Have cleaned it, and have taken it from the rack, and locked it out, but never held it.

Nice!

Awesome Job Don!

Saturday I am looking to get into the triple digit club (over 100 lb's) on the snatch.

Sweet!

Think 90, then bodyweight!

Don Stevenson 05-04-2007 09:04 PM

yep, aiming for 90 and then BW at about 93kg

Need to work on my jerk more now too.

Do you do rack jerks?

They rock, especially if you're tall, like me.

At the moment i'm doing rack jerks every session i train, morning and night

My coach likes to pound on our weaknesses for a few weeks at a time and see what happens. Last year when it was getting under the bar in snatches it was snatch balance 4x a week

Ouch. Sounds like fast progress, though.

Doing a large variety of assistance work with a wide range in rep ranges has really brought up my rack jerk, too. I basically rack jerked at most once a week, clean and jerked a couple times a week, and worked up to a heavy set in an upper-body exercise, rotating between Overhead presses, incline bench, and push-presses, ranging between singles to sets of 6. Took my rack jerk up from 120 at the beginning of this year to 130 a couple weeks ago.

Well no more O lift progress for me for the next three weeks:(

Looks like i've done something to my shoulder and the physio wants me to take a few weeks off overhead lifting.

This can mean only one thing in our gym

squats, squats and more squats

Double bodyweight squat here i come.
