Oh yeah, check out Gayle Hatch's squat program. I am in the 7th of 12 weeks and have seen some good gains. There is a link on the Mike's Gym website--go to the "programs" link. It has a spreadsheet all formulated already.

Hi Dave,
Sorry to have missed you. Yeah, I train on Mondays and Wednesdays most of the time with Coach Triolo. Artie's team (Invictus) trains Tuesdays and Thursdays. Great to hear you got some first-rate coaching!

Thanks for the feedback on the Hatch program...that's definitely a possibility for me.

Default Taking the Week Off

I've had some minor tenderness below my knee for the past few weeks. My coach thinks there's probably some slight inflammation of the patellar tendon. I actually don't notice it 99% of the time, but am taking the week off out of caution (I'm sure duckwalking a max-attempt clean 2 weeks ago probably didn't help my cause). Lots of ice, stretching, and rest.

I haven't gotten sick for about a year, but am starting to feel the faint signs of a superbug that's been going around the office. So I'll be mostly sleeping and eating -- I'm sure my knee is grateful for that. I'm dying to do get back to lifting and maybe doing some metcon...will shoot for middle of next week.

And as an unrelated rant: a portion of my bathroom ceiling collapsed on my toilet today (no, I wasn't sitting on it at the time...though that would have been pretty special).

I forsee a well rested and recovered Yoon making great progress upon return.

I remember after exams in college I would feel drained and tend to catch colds. With all the preparation and adrenaline with the meet, you're probably just in recovery mode. Feel better soon.

Default 02-May-2007: Schloppy Snatches

I don't know if it was the form adjustments from Monday, but my mechanics were kind of off today...

Squat Snatches:
(40x3)x3
(50x2)x2
(55x0)x2--> 2 misses, wtf?
(55x1)x5-->made 5, missed 3 in front of me. Usually I can save the lift at this weight, but I didn't have the desire in me today.
I'm assuming this is just a glitch and things will fall into place next week

Jerks from the Rack:
(50x2)x2
(60x2)x2
65x2
70x2
75x2

-Ugh, lowering that 75 onto my shoulders didn't feel so good.
-Wobbly arms and shoulders from 70kg onwards, so took some weight off...

50x2
(40x2)x3
Need to have more active traps in holding bar overhead I think.

Back Squat (I was gonna try Hatch program, but I forgot to print out the schedule so I just winged it for today):
60x5
70x4
80x3
90x2
100x1
105x2 (first 105 since last Dec I think?)
112.5 (PR)
-The last one was a 'Screaming Squat,' hehheh

Finished with 2 sets of 10 chinups.

Comments:
Hmmm, I think I need to do more core work. Minus the squats, I felt 'wobbly' today.

You left out the part last night where your shirtlessness attracted all kinds of "attention from the crowd."
