I'll probably just stick to mobility work/stretching/etc... today. My back is doing this weird spasm-like thing.

Snatch

Up to 43kg, but I'm messing up pretty severely around this weight.

Switched to split snatch - made several attempts at around 90% of current max. This seems a lot more stable for now, so I'm probably going to use it at the competition this Saturday.

Back squat - 70x3x4 (PR)

Split snatch/C&J - tried to get an idea of my maxes. Not much different than before.

73rd Annual Washington Open

Weigh-in: Approximately 56.75, competed in the 62kg weight class.

Snatch (split): 42kg - 47kg - 51kg (6kg PR)
C&J: 60kg - 65kg - 70(f) (2.5 C&J PR, 6kg clean PR)

Worked as a loader for third session (big guys). Not exactly the easiest job.

I took gold in my weight class. Not that there's anything hard about that when no one else is in your weight class.

Congratulations on the gold medal. Other people could have entered that comp in your division and didn't so enjoy that medal and nice job on the PR's!

Been sick and without access to a barbell recently.

Mix of snatch exercises, squats, and RDL's, but my body was just saying "no" to most of it. Weights were maybe 50-75%.

Tall clean - 48x1x2 (triples/doubles/etc working up to this. Last attempt missed).
Shoulder press - 43x3x4
Back squat - 70x3x4

I love squats. A nice diversion from all the paperwork (well... digital paperwork) I'm dealing with now.

Ran around a school track once. I think that's somewhere around 400m?

After I was done being dead, I decided that I still like lifting better.

Hang squat snatch - 34x1x2 (focused on minimal elevation of the barbell)
Split jerk - 57x1x1(?) (felt like I was going to get snapped in half by the weight. Need to stabilize my torso better)
Back Squat - 73x3x4 (PR)
