I thought I'd start a (b)log here, I've been a member of this forum for quite some time now. I'm going to be more active on this forum...because..well...I like it a lot!!!

Best lifts..

Snatch - 62k
C&J - 77k (I've cleaned and jerked 80 in training, but that doesn't count)
Front Squat 100k
Back Squat 130k

Body weight - 69kg (Dieting down towards 65'ish kg's.

Yesterdays workout 1/8/2011

Power Snatch 47.5kg x 3R x 5
Power Cln & Jrk 60kg x 3R x 5
Front Squat 80kg x 5R x 4
Snatch Balance - 30kg x 5R x 5
Bend overs (their like good mornings I guess) - 20kg x 3R x 6


It felt quite strange doing snatch balances towards the end of the session...it worked out nicely however...since I was pretty warm and ready to go after doing the heavier work. It's a totally different program than I've done in the past...it has more power work in it. I'm looking forward to seeing what I do in November (state championships). It'll hopefully be 70/95...if I work uber hard

Ahhhhhhh!!! The second day of my 'power cycle' and I'm already climbing the walls. Everything was super light tonight....so I sort of feel I didn't do anything productive. All my work was quick and smooth.

Full snatch 45k x 3R x 5
Power Snatch 50k x 2R x 5
Clean from lower boxes 50k x 3R x 2
Clean from higher boxes 50k x 3R x 2
Stop Back Squats 75k x 3R x 4, 60k x 3R x 1, 50k x 3R x 1, 40k x 3R x 1

Bit of a weird session this arvo.

Clean $ Jerk 60k x 3R x 5
Power Cleans 60k x 3R x 3
Clean Pulls 70 x 2R x 4
Back Squat 90 x 4R x 5, 80k x 3R x 1, 70k x 3R x 1, 60 x 3R x 1 40k x 3R x 1


I was taught a new approach with jerking tonight. The concept is to have your feet still hip width...but only flare the knees out when goin down. It made a noticeable difference on my power production.

With my next comp 2 weeks away...I'm keen to see what I'll do. Perhaps 65/80.

I've been playing with that as well. My jerk is so much farther behind my clean that something must be wrong with my technique....

Week 2


Once again...still working off a ground work program...

Power Snatch 42.5k x 3R x 6
Power Clean & Jerk 62.5k x 3R x 6
Front Squat 90k x 3R x 2, 80k x 5R x 3, 60k x 3R x 1
Snatch Balance 30k x 5R x 3, 32.5 x 3R x 2
Bend Overs bar x 3R x 6


I neglected to have my daily carbs pre training which made the training a bit difficult...but only a bit. All the sets & reps got in though. With the new foot work method that I picked up when jerking...being used for the snatch balances...I've gotten a lot quicker and more assertive!!
