Default Pierre's Book of Lifting

Been lifting consistently 1-2 times per week since February 3rd 2007.

Tonights Effort:
Snatch
52kg x3
54kg x3
56kg x3
59kg x3
61kg x3
64kg x3
66kg x3

Bodyweight: 69kg
Previous PR: 61kg x 1 (I think I'm getting better!)

My goal is to open with a bodyweight snatch at my first ever lifting meet on May 18th in St. Thomas, ON. It looks like if I keep progressing at this pace I'll be opening with this weight as planned.

Observations: My lifting is considerably better on days when I've completed a CrossFit MetCon WOD earlier in the day. My work capacity for the remainder of that day seems to be at peak. Interesting stuff! For some reason I seem to like starting to lift late in the evening 20:00 and going until 23:00 or so. Good thing I don't do this more often, though not fatiguing metabolically or even really on a muscular level it is more draining and gets me ready for bed soon after.

Other Notes: If I can open in St. Thomas with bodyweight then according to the current provincial standings I should be capable of winning a slot at nationals in the 69kg class.

Light snatches I was very tired after the heavy cleans. My PR on cleans was 80kg almost a year ago, it was nasty, dirty, shit! But it went up! At the time I was doing tons of front squats no back squats at all and had no technique. Now my front squats are terrible my back squats are moving up but at least my cleans look like cleans, and the weight is moving up.

What a modicum of technique can do is outstanding!! Understanding how the lifts are done and doing them are two different things...

I was done I couldn't clean any more then 165, my confidence was done. My overemphasis on the snatch I think is limiting both it and my cleans. SO tomorrow I will switch gears a bit. Yes I am actually going to workout tomorrow!

BS+CLN
185
195
215 + 160
225 + 165
235 + 170
245 + 175
255 + 180 (Both previous PR's were EASY)
265 + 185 (Missed the CLN-extension but got under and saved it for a PR)
270 + 190 (Big PR's both)
275 + 195 (Huge PR's both - this CLN was probably the best of the bunch)
280 + 185 (280 still felt very solid/Miss CLN 200 so return to 185)


Ummm OK not sure where that came from but I've been back into the fasting for the past week+ and have been building my work capacity back up. I'm sure that had something to do with it.

These ME style lifting workouts seem to be my kind of thing. I am too aloof to be following a strict program, which is why I like CrossFit so much and so simply working with a focused goal seems to be working out. I also noticed that I can snatch 135 pretty much on command at this point. It's my new starting weight in my warm-ups, that pleases me. Considering when I started this on Jan 31st I was barely snatching 135 for a single, it had been my PR for quite some time...

I've put on 3 pounds since I started fasting. Ughh, can my metabolism make up its mind? More cals lose weight less cals gain weight. I'm all f'ed up!
