needed a few days off. Back and feel strong.

snatch- (from hang) 2x40x3, (from floor) 2x50x3, 3x55 (2 snatches, 2 btn wide grip push presses, 3 overhead squats)

Clean and Jerk- 60 kg, 70 kg, 3x80 (all two cleans, one jerk). Power cleaned a few of those 80's.

threw in some bent presses for fun. 2 sets of 5 with 55 lb dumbbell

so i'm lifting in the nyc open next saturday

haven't gotten around to weightlifting too much cause i've been really busy.

last heavy workout i cleaned 90 kilos for a 2 triples, which is a pr. really fucking easy.

shooting for 85 and 115...which may be a bit out of my range but who knows. My best lifts to date are 80 and 105;105 was pretty easy.

btw i sprained my wrist yesterday while playing with some little kid. this should make things interesting

What's your plan? And get some wrist wrapping! You and Yoon in the limp wrist club...

How bad is the sprain? Hope you're icing it and lifting light until Sat.

worked up to 50 kilos on snatches
70 kg on clean and jerks

last workout till sat. meet

i've kinda forgotten how to split jerk since i've been doing so much power jerking
makes me a bit nervous, but i have to think positive

and the wrist is fine. there's still some pain but it's bearable and has no impact on my lifts.

Default The Long Awaited Meet Story

So yea. This meet didn't go too well.
I was fucking exhausted. Fell asleep in the park after the weigh-ins and had to lift as an extra.
Snatch- made 75, missed 80- got it overhead but i didn't extend enough, and joe says that I pulled with my head down, missed 85- got this overhead- and I have to say, it was pretty easy-, but I rushed to get it up, and again, my fucking head was down, and lost it forward. But 90 doesn't seem to be too far off, esp. since 85 felt so easy.

Clean and jerk- well, I blacked out during the warm-up. Yea. Fucking blacked out. Was really scary. I cleaned 95 and stood up with it- and suddenly felt like I couldn't breathe. I dropped the weight and everything went black, and I stumbled back a bit. Luckily I didn't fall. Next thing I know, my vision's back, and everybody's surrounding me. I guess I must have been really fucking exhausted for this to happen- and also, I drank no water during the meet. So yea. stupid of me.

But i made 105 and 108. I could have made 110 but joe says I cut my pull short. I caught the clean on my collar bone but couldn't rack it.

Well- for future reference- drink water and get LOTS of rest the week before a meet.
