Training on Monday 24-08-09:

Oly:
HPS and HPC: feels a little odd to pull from the hang rather than the blocks. that will take some time to get used to. lowered the weight a bit to concentrate on technique.
Poundage used: 40-50kg.
http://www.youtube.com/user/weightli.../2/6P-Kdi3jubg

Squat:
week 3 of Burgener Cycle:
BS 10x3 weight: 80kg
Front view: http://www.youtube.com/user/weightli.../0/rynzRX4g2G8
Side view: http://www.youtube.com/user/weightli.../1/UAsXMdtyC1k

Notes:
I noticed that i look down a bit in the squat...that's probably from my strength days...i used to do the Rippetoe squat and it worked quite well for me. i ll concentrate on keeping my head up more.
I also feel like i need to sit in more, but i find that very difficult! do i need to increase my ankle flexibility more? Does the stance need widening as well?

Training on Wed 26-08-09:

Oly:
HPS: they are starting to feel more normal now from the hang
Set a NEW HPS PR: 65kg....until a few weeks ago my full squat snatch PR was 60kg so massive improvements in technique! very happy with that!
i noticed that my shoulders a a bit behind the bar when the weight gets heavier so i m working on that!
50kg HPS
60kg HPS

Snatch Balance: i m starting to do those now to get used to getting under the bar quickly, they feel quite good, but i can only do the with relatively light weight atm which means that i m catching them too high and then have to ride them down.
50kg Sn Bal

Press:
not so good today, all that overhead work earlier didn t help, target was 55kgx3x10, i managed: 55kgx3x8, 55kgx2, 50kgx3....will give it another shot next week.

Training Thursday 27-08-09:

Oly:

Did HPC up to 70kg, which still feel odd and some HPS (light weights only).
kept it quite short, didn t really feel powerful today.

Strength:

OHS with 70kgx3x4 slight rounding when i hit ATG, but other than that they feel fine.

Sn DL 85kgx3x4 they felt fine too, i might need to get my back into more extension though!

Training Friday 28-08-09:

Went to meet with my coach. Pretty awesome session! i hadn t doen full Snatches and C&J in a while, but he said just go for it...so i did!
New Snatch PR: 68kg that s 8kg up from the last PR!!! i did get 70 overheard but then lost it out in front....frustrating, becuase i knew i could do it!

C&J was good as well, worked up to 85kg....that s pretty heavy for me.

Very pleased with the session!

Also, I've entered my first Oly competition in October! Looking forward to that! my coach will be in charge of my programming now so we ll see what happens!
