Greg, I saw that you answered one question about the rep tempos for yesterday's workout. Just a quick question, what is the specific goal for prescribing rep tempos in your opinion, overloading specific portions of the movement? All that I've been able to find about the practice of prescribed rep tempos has to do specifically with increasing time under tension for mass-specific reasons. Thanks!
Greg Everett 2009-12-09
Jesse - I don't prescribe tempos very much (in fact I never have in these workouts, at least not formally), but I think they have purposes in some many cases. Largely as you said it would be to encourage hypertrophy, and in this case, it is partly that, partly wanting to get a bit of isometric endurance in those postural back extensors, and partly to ensure that people are really able to emphasize back extension rather than rush through the movement, which invariably winds up in softening backs at the bottom, defeating the purpose of the exercise (at least the purpose for which I'm using it here - back extensor strength/stamina).
Kyle Pichie 2009-12-09

Snatch Heavy Single - 145# - Slow speed, no strength it seemed
80% x1x3 @ 120#

C&J Heavy Single - 200# - Slow on the squats up

Pause Back Squat 185# - did 165x3x1 175x3x1 then 185x3x1
last rep was down and up fast

Good Mornings 3x8 @ 65# Tight calves, have trouble feeling the hams and back emphasis with them, any ideas?

Missed yesterday, wanted to make up SB... I may be catching heavier weights without being locked out, and pressing up once at bottom of squat.
Snatch Balance 75-95-105
90%- 95

3 singles @ 115, several misses to get 3 good lifts
C&J 115-135-155-155-155-165
PR is 185, I was struggling with the jerk portion- wrist position and balance after locking out under the bar. 
3 singles @ 135
Pause BS 135-165-185-205-215 (20# up from last week)
GM 3x10 @ 55 (10# up from last week)

I'm getting a cold so the lifts where pretty draining.

No Pr's but I got to 170 for snatch, 200 for clean and 245 for BS with a pause.

Greg Everett 2009-12-10
Scott - Can't give you much advice without knowing why you're not getting under it. If you can post some video, we can give you an answer.
Ian Carver 2009-12-10
Snatch - Heavy Single - 195 Lbs (97% 1RM)
80%= 155x1x3 @1min.

Cln & Jerk - Heavy Single - 240 Lbs (96% 1RM)
80%= 190x1x3 @1min.

Back Squat - Heavy Triple w/3s. pause
285 Lbs (up 10 Lbs from last week)

Took yesterday (12/9) off due to fatigue and caught up on programming today. Everything felt good...except the frigid temps in the gym...
LK 2009-12-11

SN: 65#, 54x1x3
C&J: 80#, 64x1x3
BSQ: 115# w/3sec pause
GM: 40# 3x10

Felt slower today. Working on form, wider grip on snatch seemed to help avoid pressing out.
leon r 2009-12-15

SN:85 67.5 x1x3
C&J: 105 - 85x1x3

95lb OHS
