I took 10 days off from everything sans walking like more than I have in months and coming back was a major bitch. Strength down. Technique and form out the window. Flexibility lacking. The last is probably the worst of the 3; hips and hams have been killing me and it's definitely effecting my form.

You are being a bitch. I expect a 200 total from you in a meet by the end of this year. Quit whining, get focused, stop biking and lift heavy.

Snatch
2x50x3, 3x60x3

Clean and Jerk
60x3, 70x3, 3x80x3

Snatch high pull
3x60x3

Clean pull
3x90x3

Not exactly the heaviest workout ever, but the best technique i've used in a good while.

I think my technique in the pulls is really off. Seems like i'm coming up on my toes much too quickly and not finishing off the pull quick enough

Must start squatting again soon. I haven't had access to a squat rack in awhile

Gladly!

Nah, seriously I think you just need to try your best to get back on a regular schedule with the lifting (maybe 2-3 times a week). Make that your foundation...throw in fun stuff as you see fit, but don't compromise your recovery too much, especially if it's a 'heavy' week. If you can't make it out to LBH, then just do squats, pulls, and presses somewhere else.

Questions: it wasn't long ago your max snatch was like 60kg or something, I think. The next thing I know, you're up to 80 real fast. Strength-wise, what's your training background? Also, what accessory work did you do in the months leading up to your easy 105 practice C&J?

feeling 100%. The problem was too much bike riding. Stopped, and the problems are gone.

Did some crossfit- "mini diane"

80 kilo deadlift- 21, 15, 9 reps
Handstand pushups- 10, 7, 5

for time

approx. 9 mins. should really get a stop watch

Deadlifts flew off the floor. Had no trouble getting through them. Made me wonder why I didn't take a much heavier weight...but give 10 mins and wham...back became supertight. So glad that I scaled down.

LBH tomorrow. Think I can go heavy.

Went to lbh today. Yesterday's xfit really murdered my glutes and hamstrings. I'm fucking sore all over right now. Couldn't go heavy at all.

Snatch- 2x40x3, 50x3, 4x60x3
Clean and Jerk (Two cleans, one jerk) - 2x60, 4x80

ab work
back extension with 10 kilo plate 10 reps

heavy night. first one in awhile

Snatch
2x40x3
50x3
2x60x3 (felt like i either wasn't extending enough or was jumping back, not too sure)
65x3
70 x 1,1,1,x,1,1

First time I haven't missed my first attempt on 70. Good sign. The missed one I didn't extend enough, and had to rush forward to save it, but still miss

Clean and Jerk
50- pc, pj, j, hc
70- PC, pj, j, C
80- " '
85- c, j, c
90- c, j, c
c, missed pj, c, pj (FIRST POWER JERK I've missed...EVER!)
c, j, c


Front Squat
70x5
80x5
80x3 (no gas left in the tank.)

felt strong. This and the fact that I'm lighter than I have been in ages is a good sign i guess

split into two sessions. light day

am session
snatch complex (two snatches, 3 overhead squats)- 50 kg, 55x4

pm session (two cleans, 3 front squats)- 60 kg, 75x4

would have done some xfit but my body's telling me to take it easy. pulled a neck muscle, and i had a sharp pain in right knee yesterday that just went away as soon as it hit me.
