My final season of contact hockey is coming to a close. At first I was disappointed that I wouldn't have an outlet for my "rage," but after doing Crossfit for awhile I have found a new sport, Olympic Lifting! So that worked out well. Posting log over here as I think it is a bit more in line with the goals of this website.
Goals for completion by the end of 2009:
120 KG Clean and Jerk
Learn how to actually Snatch
Current, February 8th 2009- Body Weight 75 kg
91 kg Clean
80 kg Jerk(haven't done this since doing Starting Strenght)
155 # Press
315 # LB Backsquat- Going to start learning the High Bar
245# Front Squat
The Template- Although I like to Olympic lift, I also like generally being in good shape, so I am going to keep 2-3 workout of the days a week from my affiliate in my training (none over 20 minutes, but not all under 10). I am 22 get good rest and nutrition so I believe that this shouldn't be too much for me to handle. I am doing this to eventually work into the Catalyst Athletics work outs of the day, but I think I can get some strength and technique linear progression due to me being a novice.
HB Back squat 3X3
Weighted Chinups (spring break is coming up soon
Clean and Jerk- 2 or 3 Heavy singles or 2 sets of heavy doubles
Front Squat - 3X3
Workout of the Day
Incline Press 3X3
Weighted Pullups/ Pullups max
Snatch Grip Deadlift or Deadlift 2X3
Workout of the day
Snatch Technique work
Clean and Jerk go for PR
Workout of the Day
I will probably try 3 weeks of this, with a 4th week of half intensity. I will attempt to get new PR's on core lifts(FS, BS, DL) every time and on the C+J on Saturday. I think I can do this for maybe a month or two with success, and by then move to the CA workout. Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.
Beatup after tackle football Friday and Hockey on Saturday, but feeling good about new journey into strength!
