Default My Snatch Brings All the Boys to the Yard

Been training in olympic weightlifting on and off since April of last year. Training out of Lost Battalion Hall, NYC. Yoon and John are gay bend-over buddies.

benchmarks as of today:
Bodyweight: 72.7 kg
Snatch: 80 kgs
C&J: 105
FS: 90 (max for 5)
BS: 115 (max for 5)

Right now, I'm 10 lbs lighter than my usual weight...just rediscovered cycling (former delivery worker), and have been doing way too much of it as of recent. I have snatched 70 kilos for an easy triple, and c& power jerked 90 for an easy double, so i'm sure that i have a little bit more in the tank. Next three weeks, going to focus on regaining some of that lost weight.

Last Workout (8/8/07):

Clean and Jerk- 60 kg x2 (one Power Jerk, one split jerk), 70x2, 80x2, 85 x 4 singles (felt weak)

"Litvisled"- 60 kilo front squat x8 followed immediately by 250 lb sled push for 100 ft. 4 rounds for time (didn't have a stopwatch)

I'm glad so many people are turned on by me, especially yoon, that sexy sexy sexy bastard.

Anyway. Bit exhausted today. Spent all of yesterday outdoors at a state park; had to deal with dozens of children, all of whom's favorite activity was beating me till i either "kettlebell swung" them above my head or i put them on my shoulder and sprinted them up a hill. Good gpp workout, but it knocked the shit out of me. So went really light today.

AM workout
Clean complexes (1 power clean, squat clean from hang, 3 front squats)- 60kg , 70X4

PM workout
Snatch complexes (1 snatch, snatch from hang, one btn push press, 2 overhead squats) 50 kg x 5

I'm not extending enough on my second pull on the clean; not pulling myself under the bar and keeping it close on the snatch. things to work on.

Sporadic biking throughout the day. probably 10-15 miles in total.

I'm starting to feel a little better, but something tells me that I should lay off totally from any kind of activity for the whole week. My resting heart rate right now is 78 bpm, which is pretty damn high for a day of rest. I think i've been doing too much of everything lately and i've been feeling really weak for a good while. not giving myself time to rest. If anyone's reading this, tell me if i'm just being a bitch.

At least I know that I need to also prioritize building up my work capacity.
