Finally got sick of measuring this stuff in pounds. Switching to kilograms.
September 6, 2008
Trained with Sam Maxwell and Rachel Izzo today.
Snatch - worked up to a new PR of 45kg (7kg PR)
Clean and Jerk - 62.5kg (2.5kg PR clean, 10kg PR jerk)
Back squat - 60x3x2 (ridiculously difficult, but I was pretty tired by this time)
A bit of press out on these... I need to work on that.
Valuable advice received:
1) Closer grip with both the clean and snatch. That alone brought my snatch up 5kg.
2) Squat more. I can do that.
3) Eat more. I understand the concept, but the execution has always been a bit difficult for me...
4) It's clean and jerk - not clean, stand around, and then jerk.
