2009.09.05
Power Clean + Jerk: (3+2)x45, (2+2)x55, (2+2)x63, (2+2)x72, (1(f2)+1)x72
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x92, 3x106, 3x2x112

Notes:

1 - Power clean and jerks were supposed to actually go up to 77, and I was supposed to do clean pulls - but I felt the ripped calluses from kettlebells rip significantly more in the middle of pulling the last 72kg clean, so I stopped there and moved directly to front squats.

2 - @ Brandon - Yes, the planks were weighted, I have a member of my team load plates on my back. In this case, they loaded two 25kg plates.

2009.09.06
Snatch: 4x45, 3x52, 2x61(f3), 2x70, 3x1x75
Clean+Jerk: 3x55, 3x65, 2x75, 2x86, 3x1x91
OHS: 4x55, 4x63, 2x3x72, 3x77, 2x77(f3)

Notes:

1 - Lifts felt good despite hands still being torn. Just needed to perfect creative new taping methods.

2 - First time doing overhead squats in close to a year. Neat. Working off of 90kg as a ballpark, which seems just about appropriate.


2009.09.07
Snatch: 4x45, 3x52, 3x61, 70(f), 70(f), 70(f), 70(f), 2x2x60, 2x2x65
Snatch Pull: 4x65, 3x75, 2x3x87, 2x87
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x92, 3x106, 3x2x120
BTN Snatch Jerk: 4x60, 4x70, 3x80, 3x90, 2x2x95

Notes:

1 - I hate lifting in the morning. Gym closed at noon today for the holiday though. Le Suck.

2 - Snatches felt awful, couldn't get over 75% today.

3 - Coach had me cut my pulls short and move on to front squats.

4 - Squats were surprisingly easy.

5 - Happy about finally feeling like I'm doing the snatch jerks with what feels like legit weight.

Clean+Jerk: (3+3)x55, (2+2)x65, (2+2)x75, (2+2)x86, 2x(2+1)x91, (2+f)x91, 2x(1+1)x96
Clean Pull: 4x75, 4x86, 3x96, 3x3x107
Back Squat: 5x100, 4x116, 3x132, 3x2x150
BTN Push Press: 5x50, 4x65, 3x80, 1x90(f2), 2x2x85

Notes:

1 - Been a while since I've done back squats that heavy, but they felt really good.

2 - Coach said to work my push presses off 10kg over my snatch. That didn't work. I think 90kg is a legit max for that exercise.

2009.09.10
Snatch: 3x45, 2x52, 61, 70, 75, 80, 85(f), 85(f), 85(f)
Clean+Jerk: 2x55, 2x65, 75, 85, 95, 100, 105, 108(f), 108(f)

Notes:

1 - No prescribed workout today... so I did someone else's! Minus 90% BS 2x2, since I did that yesterday.

2 - Was really hoping to hit that 108kg C+J, but I just couldn't hold myself under bar in the clean. Weird.

2009.09.11
Power Snatch (HB): 4x40, 3x50, 4x2x55
Power Clean (HB): 3x45, 3x55, 4x2x65

Notes:

1 - Light day to work on speed.

2 - Lifting at 8am blows.


2009.09.12
Snatch: 4x45, 3x52, 3x61, 2x70, 2x75, 1x75(f2), 80(f), 80(f)
Snatch Pull: 3x80, 2x3x95
OHS: 4x55, 3x65, 2x75, 2x80, 7x85(f8)

Notes:

1 - Snatches blew today.

2 - Snatch pulls were slow.

3 - Overhead squats were the only enjoyable part of this workout. Was feeling really good with them, so I impulsively decided to attempt the 15 rep BW OHS challenge. Made it through seven reps before everything past my elbows went numb and I decided to dump the weight. Then proceeded to laugh at myself for a long period of time. Good fun.

Afternoon
Power Snatch (HB): 4x40, 3x45, 3x52, 3x60, 2x2x65
Power Clean + Jerk (HB): 3x45, 3x55, 3x63, 2x72, 2x2x77

Evening
Snatch: 4x44, 3x52, 3x61, 3x70, 1x75(f2), 2x75
Snatch Pull: 4x61, 4x70, 3x78, 3x87, 3x2x91
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x92, 3x106, 2x120, 2x2x125

Notes:

1 - First workout went well, though I'm still trying to get myself not to pull back on my snatches from the blocks.

2 - Apparently that's the point, as working on that from the blocks has massively improved my layback in my full snatches. Not that it really means much, but 70kg is a PR triple, which means greater consistency, which is a big problem of mine.

3 - Front squat doubles at 95% went well, I think I can expect to see some sizable PR's in FS coming up.

Clean: 3x55, 3x65, 2x75, 2x86, 2x2x91
Clean Pull: 4x75, 4x86, 4x96, 3x107, 3x2x112
OHS: 4x55, 3x65, 2x75, 1x85(f2), 1x85(f2), 1x85(f2)

Notes:

1 - Both cleans and clean pulls felt really good today. Pretty much zero jumping back. Focused on using my hips to push through my shoulders. Seemed to work well at getting me to pull straight up.

2 - Overhead squats were a different story however. I was supposed to be testing doubles today. But I couldn't even hit a double at 85kg, which I managed to hit for 7 reps on Saturday. Fail.

Afternoon
Power Snatch (HB): 4x40, 3x45, 3x52, 3x3x60
Power Clean (HB): 3x45, 3x55, 3x63, 3x2x72

Evening
Snatch: 4x45, 3x52, 3x61, 3x70, 2x75, 1x75(f2), 78, 78(f), 78
Front Squat: 5x80, 4x92, 3x106, 2x120, 2x125, 1x131(f2), 2x131, 1x134(f2)

Notes:

1 - The first session went extremely smoothly, continuing to focus on pulling up rather than back.

2 - Snatches in the second session weren't bad, but still need some ironing out, as showed at a couple of the top weights.

3 - Still managed to hit 70 for a triple again, which is really exciting levels of consistency.

4 - Testing doubles for FS today, and I got a PR double of 131 (1kg under my old max) and attempted 134 for a double but only hit a single, which is still a PR. Weak point in FS is still the core strength, need to keep working abs.

Clean Pull: 4x75, 4x86, 4x96, 3x107, 3x2x112

Notes:

1 - No misses!

2 - Cleans and clean pulls still feeling really snappy and in good position, hopefully tomorrow I'll hit some big lifts at the McKenna Developmental meet.

2009.09.19
McKenna Developmental Meet
Snatch Attempts: 82 - 86 - 86
Clean+Jerk Attempts: 105 - 110 - 113 PR
Total: 195 PR

Notes:

1 - Snatch just felt a little burned out. Each of the 86s got up there, but I couldn't stay stable. Still 2kg above my best in competition.

2 - Clean and jerks were awesome! That's a full 6kg PR for both meet and training.

3 - Inching closer to that 205 collegiates qualifying total! This is another 8kg over the MD State Games last month.
