Default Program Complete

After further review of the program and my goal of competing in three weeks, I decided to end the 12 week technique program with weeks 11 and 12 left. I will start the 3 week Bulgarian Peaking Cycle today, also from Greg Everett's book.

My final assessment of the technique program? It's good stuff. If you have experience with lifting then using some permutation of the program would suit you better. If you don't have any experience at all then the full program would be better. See my notes that I posted previously.

Yes, I think my lifting technique is better because of it. This program accomplished two objectives: better technique and increased awareness of body mechanics.

I am just about done the 10th week of the Strength and Power Development program Cain. I see we ended up on similar paths! Adhering to these methods really works, and I hope it gets reflected in the meet results on the 9th. I saw you registered, and Susan as well. Should be a good Saturday!

I did 10 of the 12 weeks technique program, tried to peak for three weeks, and then competed in the Capital City Open. I won first place in the men's master's division. I hit a PR on the Clean and Jerk. I didn't warm up enough on the Snatch, only made the first attempt. It was an awesome experience! I am still toasted. I don't think I'll be back to the gym until Wednesday and probably not lifting until Thursday or later.
