Snatch Balance Heavy Single
95#x2, 105#x2, 115#x2, 125#x1, 130#x1, 135#(F) horrible fail wasn’t fast enough under the bar and I didn’t get locked out before I reached the bottom, the weight came down as I sprawled underneath. Really scary I am not going to do these heavy until I get a lot faster.

3 position snatch 60% floor knees mid thigh 3x3
80# The reception felt great on every rep.

Muscle snatch heavy single all singles
80#, 85#, 95#, 100#, 115#. Felt like I could have gone heavier but I was wanting to keep the pulls as clean and true to the positions as I could and felt like after this I might get messy on the third.

Met con

400m row
10 broad jumps
30sec rest

didn't keep time for the whole event but the rows were 1:15, 1:32, 1:23

Snatch (hs): 65x2, 85x2, 95x2, 105, 115, 125, 130, 135

C&J (hs): 135x3, 155x2, 175, 185(ugly), 185(good but a little forward on the jerk reception)

FS (hs): 95x5, 135x3, 165x2, 185, 195, 205, 215

Snatch Heavy Single: 135# felt fine balance alittle shaky so I called it

Clean and Jerk Heavy Single: 185# it was ugly the first time I did it so I attempted again it came off really well except a little to much wait on my front foot in the reception so I called it done

Front Squat Heavy Single: 215# started getting a little forward lean and my knees tried to come back on the way up but it was still quick and I called it because I am trying to get away from that forward lean in the front squat.

after another sore throat I took an extra rest day and am only going to do yoga today, If I feel better tomorrow I may do the first work out in the last week of the strength cycle and then take another rest day the next day.... We'll see.

I am going to take it easy and have lots of extra rest hopefully accomplishing the strength cycle by the end of next week with extra yoga and no metcons.

Gregg Everett suggested I do at least one more strength cycle scaling the sets if needed before attempting a Bulgarian cycle. After examining the recent cycle more closely I am taking him up on that.

To be honest as it is becoming increasingly gorgeous outside I may stray away from the WOD and do my own programming incorporating what I have learned so I will continue to progress and work on my technical skill while allowing for some more outdoor activity as well. I am acting in hopes that this fall when I am planning to do the PM Mass gain program and then spend at least four months on Olympic lift specific training with the attention of a qualified coach I will be prepareing for the ability to be a competitive athlete in the sport of olympic lifting.

felt great after yoga and I got like 10 hours of sleep last night... I am definitely feeling better!

I decided to do some snatch drills with PVC and it felt great! I did some more with the bar and felt even better so I decided I would perform a not quite full on version of the first WOD in the last week

BS: 135#x4, 225x2, 245x2

Sn pull: 135x1, 155x1

PP: 135x3, 155x3x2

Hand stand progressions:
3 press to Hand stand last one stuck for 3 seconds

then I did three handstands for about 15-20s each using the wall to balance when necessary on the last one I finished with a full 10s free stand I have been shooting for that!

Hanging L-ups 10x2
GHD Hip ext. 10x2

Rolled out and stretched then hot sauna and cold shower I feel pretty good but we'll see how it goes tonight.

Dr. G if you are checking I am sticking to just yoga tomorrow and maybe drills or something else non-weighted. Today I am just playing with the way I feel and trying to learn what’s going on with me/ what I can handle as I have never experienced a break down at this level.

I can't help but wonder if I have developed allergies it is the season and I have heard they can be this bad.

Sounds good to me.

Allergies can be a sign of overtaxing the adrenals in some folks, so it could very well fit your picture.
