BTN Snatch Jerk: 4x50, 4x57, 3x65, 3x2x73

Notes:

1 - Generally a good day lifting, only lift missed was missed because the previous one caught me solidly in the trachea, so I was a bit winded and disoriented.

REST


2009.08.06
REST - Skipped third workout this week due to travel.


2009.08.07
Power Snatch: 4x40, 3x45, 3x52, 3x60, 3x2x62, 3x3x60
Power Clean + Jerk: (3+3)x45, (3+3)x55, (3+2)x62, (3+2)x72, 3x(2+2)x77, 3x(2+2)x72
Back Squat: 5x100, 4x115, 3x132, 4x4x140, 4x132, 4x125, 2x6x115

Notes:

1 - Visited CF Morris County today for my workout. Rob was very welcoming and we had a good time chatting between his classes.

2 - Lifts were a bit slow, but not that bad. Squats were fine, just trying to keep my back upright and my weight on my heels correctly.

REST - Basically took a week and a half off because of traveling and vacation. A little lifting and definitely some physical activity, but nothing really structured.


2009.08.19
Snatch: 4x40, 3x50, 3x57, 2x65, 2x70, 2x75, 78(f), 78(f), 78(f)
Front Squat: 5x85, 4x100, 3x115, 2x123, 2x127

Notes:

1 - Not bad for a first day back. PR doubles on both snatch and FS are fine with me. My max FS definitely should be higher than 132.

Snatch Balance: 4x40, 3x50, 3x57, 3x65, 2x75, 2x79, 83(f), 2x83, 85(f), 2x85, 2x87
Clean: 3x55, 3x65, 2x75, 2x82, 87(f), 2x87, 92(f), 1x92(f2), 92(f)
Back Squat: 5x100, 4x115, 3x3x130

Notes:

1 - Lifting in the dungeon of heated despair that is the Littlestown High School today. No cooling systems at all, it turns into a sauna.

2 - Snatch balance PR double by 5kg today, which is good. Probably could get 90kg, but was a bit burned out.

3 - Cleans were a little disappointing, since my PR double is 94kg, but I was completely burning out by then, the bar literally slipped off me at one point.

2009.08.22
Maryland State Games
Snatch Attempts: 75 - 80 - 85
Clean+Jerk Attempts: 97 - 102 - 107
Meet Total: 187 PR

Notes:

1 - Best meet EVAR!

2 - Missed the 85kg snatch, because apparently my feet shifted weird in the middle of the pull. That's just odd. That would've made it a pretty much perfect meet, what with finally getting a bodyweight snatch and also going 6/6. I'm not complaining though.

3 - This is an 11kg PR total fools! One lift or the other kept screwing up since I made 176 way back when.

Snatch: 3x40, 2x50, 2x57, 65, 70, 75, 80, 83(f), 83, 85, 87 PR, 89(f), 89(f)

Notes:

1 - Snatching 85 felt so close at the meet on Saturday that I felt like I had to try again today... and instead I made 87!!

2 - Huge PR over my previous best of 81kg.

3 - First actual BW Snatch! I weighed in at the time at 83.5kg. My snatch has been going up, but so has my weight.

4 - The reps at 89 actually felt easy, I was just massively fatigued by that point and couldn't control it anymore. I think by the East Coast Gold meet in October I could easily break over 90kg.

2009.09.02
Clean: 4x55, 3x65, 3x75, 3x2x86, 2x1x91
Clean Pull: 5x75, 4x86, 3x96, 3x3x102

Notes:

1 - Day 2 in a row of missing zero lifts!

2 - BTN jerks are weird. They feel like the range of motion is crazy long compared to jerks from the front, which doesn't make much sense to me.

2009.09.03
Fun day out on Hopkins campus with assorted kettlebells for conditioning.

Highlights:

1 - Two sessions of indeterminate length tossing a single kettlebell around - one person does a lift at whim, then passes it to the next person, and so on. First session with 28kg bell, second session with 40kg bell.

2 - Managed to C+J the 40kg bell, as well as a few juggling tricks. I could barely pick it up when I first tried in October(ish).

3 - Managed to C+J two 32kg bells a few times. Very hard, but definitely reasonable.

4 - Finished with 50 one-arm swings each side with the 28kg bell at speed.

5 - Haven't done conditioning this serious in a long time, definitely knocked me on my ass. A lot of fun though!

Snatch Balance: 4x45, 3x52, 3x61, 3x2x70, 2x1x75
Clean (HB): 3x55, 3x65, 3x75, 3x2x86, 2x1x91
Snatch Pull: 4x70, 3x78, 4x2x87
Front Squat (FAST): 5x80, 4x92, 4x3x106
Planks: 3x30s@50kg

Notes:

1 - Snatch balances, cleans, and pulls all felt easy. General consensus was that if I snatched the way I pulled I'd be snatching 90+.

2 - First time doing planks in a while, decided to modify my technique towards what a friend suggested a while ago - keeping my lower back flat to the plate. I hadn't been paying this any mind before and letting my back arch as much as I felt like. Dropped from 75kg to 50kg and was still dying, but it felt a lot more productive.
