Snatch
89x 4, 4
99x 3
111x 2
121x 1
133x 1, 1, 1, 1

Snatch Pulls
155x 3, 3, 3, 3, 3

Push Press (behind neck)

105x 3
115x 2
125x 1
135x 2, 2, 2

Back Squat
135x 3
165x 2
185x 1
195x 1
205x 1
215x 2, 2

Weighted Back Extensions
Weighted Ab Work


Notes: Almost lost it with one of the workers at the gym, but I kept my cool. I was warming up on Snatch and she came over and this conversation took place:

Her- "You can't be dropping weights from over your head."
Me- "Uhh, ok."
Her- "I will kick you out!"
Me- "Ok..."
Her- "You follow our rules!!"
Me- "... ok."

Mind you, I'm using bumper plates and on a platform that's like 10x10 and 5-6 inches thick. By the time I was done, it was a new shift so I went over to the new workers and asked them about the situation. They started laughing and said dropping from overhead is the reason bumpers/platforms are there. So they're going to talk with the girl, probably make fun of her a little. Other than that, no misses today and solid workout!!

Default Tuesday 3/3/09

Gym Fitness Testing (friend dragged me into it)
wall-sit for time
strict pull-ups for reps
max sit-ups in a minute
standing broad jump
vertical jump (for fun. people said i got high, must be the o-lifting )
-ehh, now i'm tired, not cool

Clean & Jerk
111x 3
133x 2
143x 1
155x 1
165x 1
175x 1
185x 1
195x F-jerk

Cleans
195x 1
199x 1

Front Squat
185x 2
195x 1
205x 1, 1

RDL
95x 5, 5, 5


Notes: Started back up RDLs. Right now the weight doesn't matter to me, I'm really emphasizing form by keeping my scapulae retracted throughout the entire range of motion. Definately taking an extremely light week next week, or maybe week n' half starting this Thursday, we'll see how I feel.

Notes: First time ever Power Snatching 60kg and it felt so smooth, easiest rep of the day. So I tried again and just couldn't catch it in a good position. My straps started to rip on the Snatch High Pulls so gotta go get some new ones before these completely tear in half.

Swimming- 30mins

Notes: Holy f*ck I suck at swimming. I wanted to do 50m intervals and gave up on that. Then again, I haven't swam in about a year.
