2008.12.12
Dynamic stretching
Dot drill
Olympic lifting
Sots press, scarecrow snatch, tall snatch work with kiddie bar

Snatch triples, doubles, singles, ranging from 25 to 45 (PR!)

BS - 15x5, 35x5, 45x5, 55x3, 65x3x3

The conclusion of remedial lifting technique week is that I needed it, and it worked really, really well. Mary (one of my coaches) has improved my technique by about a billion, and it is evident in my lifts. The 45 PR went up like a dream and I definitely could have done more. The back squats also felt really strong. In general, I'm much snappier and more consistent and can't wait until next week to continue.

Now, I will be throwing myself in the library all weekend for finals.

No time for real lifting due to finals.

Dynamic stretching
Handstand work - a friend saw me in the gym and decided to teach me to do handstands after I told him I couldn't. And lo and behold, I did! Up against the wall, but I held the position a few times. It was awesome, but killed my shoulders for the metcon.
Sots press w/ 20#, 30# pre-weighted bar, some OHS, some back squat

Metcon - 13:38.59
10-16-20 of
Dumbbell swings, 50#
Dumbbell clean + push press, 35#/arm

Argh, just read comments for this metcon. Apparently I was supposed to do the cleans and presses one arm at a time, and split the reps between them. That would explain why this took so long and kicked my ass so hard. The cleans were also power cleans more than full squat cleans.

2008.12.18 REST

My shoulders starting hurting after the workout on the 17th, and they're still bothering me. It's weird, I'm OK moving my arms up and down but not rotating them. If you imagine holding your arms at your sides, palms facing you body, and then rotate your arms so your palms are facing forward or backward, that's the type of rotation that makes 'em hurt.

Interestingly enough, my right shoulder started out worse, then my left shoulder hurt, and today my right shoulder feels almost 100% but my left shoulder is fairly bad.

I am still not sure if this is injured-something pain or muscle soreness pain. I did some slightly heavier scarecrow snatches on Wednesday that may have caused issues. I'll see how the cleans feel in my workout today.

This is entirely my fault for not keeping up with the rehab program.

2008.12.21 REST

Today, I calculated that prior to seriously pursuing my Olympic lifting training on 9/28/2008, I only worked out 158 days between effectively starting Crossfit on 6/6/2007 and then. That's out of around 490 days or so, or maybe 32%.

Jesus Christ, I'm surprised I made any progress during that time. But by then my military press was up to at least 80 for 3, squat at at least 145 for 5, and deadlift at 173 for 3.

On the one hand, I feel bad for being so lax about my training. On the other hand, I'm excited about what lies in store for Olympic weightlifting if my training is consistent, as those aren't bad numbers given the small amount of training and I feel like my strength could go places.

(No comment on conditioning workouts. >_< )
