Nice job on third! It's funny how are bodies react to being nervous. Last comp for me I was only going to compete in the masters division but when I got there the masters division wasn't until the end of the day and the adult blue belt was the very first match on one of the mats. So I said why not and jumped right in. I was the very first match of the entire tournament and ended up winning by a lot. Then I had time to get nervous.

Once again third is really nice!

First workout in the new program

Practiced footwork from pull position to catch position

Worked up to something like 125 C&J and then did something like 3 singles with 100lbs

My feet were way too wide, the footwork drills did not help much. The clean, oddly enough felt worse than the jerk.

I say "something like" because my mind is broken and I can't remember what I did, even though I did it less than an hour ago. I'll have to write it down on site.

Worked up to snatching 95lbs and then did 2 singles with 85lbs. I did get under 100lbs but I lost it behind me.

Did 8 pull ups, then 8 chins by mistake, then 2 pull ups

I don't know if the way you wrote it is the order you did your workout. Most of the time I train the snatch before clean and jerk. Greg always programs it that way and I asked one time why and there were two parts first lighter weights on the snatch and second that is how it is competed.

Both made sense to me and I have a lot less warmup reps on c&j when I snatch first. And I definitely write my workouts down while doing them or else I forget almost immediately.

Well the order I did it was the order it said in the book(I think). But the argument you give makes tons of sense so maybe I should switch them around.

I used to be able to remember numbers easily, but clearly I have to get used to a program before it makes sense in my mind.

Warmed up by rowing 500m on the C2

Did the basic stretches outlined in the weightlifting book

Worked up to snatching 85lbs, then did 3 singles with 72lbs

Worked up to C&J 115lbs, then did 3 singles with 97lbs.

Besides some donkey kicking action things generally felt pretty smooth and quick. The jerking felt pretty strong.

Pullups: 8...8...4

Ring supports: something like 5 x 20-30s

Back extentions: 3 sets of 10

I had a very good sleep last night, my upper inner legs and hamstrings are *very* sore from the squat triples. This is just cause I became unused to squatting when I was training for the competition.

OHSQ 95lbs 3 doubles - the last double was tough

FSquat 127lbs 5 triples - felt easy

Clean pull 135lbs 2 triples - felt heavy but there was plenty of pop, good pick on the weight I think

Trained no gi today

The first week generally and the back squat triples specifically really shot my legs with DOMS. I didn't train any BJJ on the weekend. My sleep was disturbed and my nose was stopped up. My diet was poor although I did have a good deal of pork on Sunday.

It was pretty cold in the gym so I row 500m, then I go to snatch warmups and my right knee feels funny, so I do another 500m and a more aggressive warmup.

Worked up to snatching 90lbs and then did 76lbs for 3 singles.

Jake says and I feel the 1st and second pulls are good but it's catching the bar that is trouble. I didn't let go of the hook grip at all so I need to work on that.

Worked up to C&J with 115lbs then did 3 singles with 97lbs.

Thinking to jam my elbows up helped a lot for getting tight in the catch.

Pull ups: something like 7 6 6

Generally this seemed pretty good.

Trained no gi

130lbs front squat for 5 triples

Clean DL 157lbs 2 x 2

Snatch grip push press 65lbs 5x5
This felt pretty light

Did some ring supports and then I discovered I can do ring dips so I played around with those, getting 2-3 a set.

Back extensions 3 sets of 10

Did a one handed barbell snatch with 65# and a 2 hands anyhow because I was encouraged to.
Sleep the last 2 days has been pretty solid, I go to bed very late but I also get up very late and my room is very dark. I am trying to get more meat into my diet and have done so.
