Garden State Championships
Snatch Attempts: 70 - 75 - 75
Clean+Jerk Attempts: 95 - 100 - 100
Meet Total: 170


Not my best meet ever, but that's ok, it's the opening event for ECG's weightlifting camp, so I don't mind taking my percentages off of slightly lower numbers for the week given the high volume.

ECG Weightlifting Camp: Day 1

Snatch: 3x40, 3x45, 3x50, 2x2x60, 2x(f)x60, 2x60
Snatch Pull: 5x60, 4x70, 3x80, 4x60, 3x70, 2x80
Abs: 25 bicycles, 25 toe-touches, 50 crunches (continuous)


Clean+Jerk: 3x45, 3x55, 3x65, 4x2x75
Clean Pull: 5x75, 4x85, 3x95, 4x75, 3x85, 2x95
Front Squat: 5x55, 4x65, 3x80, 3x3x95

Also, a lot of foam rolling and stretching after both sessions and a dynamic warm-up in the morning, all of which sounds like it will be happening every day of camp.


1 - Got a lot of really useful work done on my starting position in both snatch and clean that already seems to be paying dividends. Pushing my starting position slightly forward over the base of my toes allows me to get a lot more power out of my legs in the beginning and keeps me from scraping my shins, which I always do.

2 - Got some good advice on how to avoid tight-roping my jerk, which hopefully will help. Focus on putting the front foot forward and out (seems simple, but it actually helped a lot).
