Snatch : 80kg PR
C&J : 102.5kg PR

Gym was closing so I'll do some front squats tomorrow and ring work. It's been 2 weeks since I started here and I've experienced a huge gain in confidence to get under the bar, my snatch has gone up 10kg and my c&j + 7.5kg. THANK YOU.

Haven't been posting regularly, but have been on top of the workouts with two of our clients. Today was a great day:

Snatch: 180#, 10# PR and my first bodyweight snatch!
Clean: 225#, equals my PR with a much stronger squat and jerk
FS: 265#, actually surprised as my second clean tapped out my legs terribly.

Altogether an awesome day! Great program Greg, can't wait for the Bulgarian cycle!

-workout during a work shift(at Fire Dept.)doesn`t always go as planned..

Snatch 83.5kg
C&J up to easy 106kg,then got a call and was out for few hours(aimed at 118-120),too late to restart when I got back
no FS

-Greg,should I do next week as rx`d or do some FS/C&J heavy singles before saturday??
Peter Haas 2008-09-06


Snatch felt great. Getting a good start seems to make all the difference. C&J still feels a little off.

Really liking this strength cycle. Can't wait for the bulgarian cycle. Thanks Greg.

Good day today

Snatch: 160 lbs. (pr)

Tommi - Just do next week as RXed.
Aimee 2008-09-06
That was seriously "paleo" Aimee. That is exactly what I thought when I saw that picture!

Now my stomach has a nice layer of jumbo jacks and oreo's around it.

I'm making my first Oly platform, and the stall mats I bought are smooth on one side, and have dimples (outies) on the other side.

I don't know if gluing the dimpled side down would work, so I think to glue them I'll have to put the smooth side down and the dimpled side up.

Would this be a problem, to have a dimpled surface on the rubber of the platform? They're smooth dimples, but...

These stall mats were hard to come by as it is, and it seems all the stall mats available around Phoenix, AZ came from the same manufacturer --- they're all dimpled on one side. Advice is much appreciated, thanks!
Greg Everett 2008-09-06
Kirez - Instead of gluing them, screw them down with drywall screws. Solves the dimple problem and it allows you to swap the rubber in the future.
ken c 2008-09-07
snatch: 165 170fx5
clean and jerk: 225 235f 230f
front squat: 275 285f
knees to elbows: 25 20 15
ghd sit ups: 3x15

one of my worst lifting days in a long time. no explosiveness, no energy, everything felt heavy.
Kirez 2008-09-07
Thanks, Greg, that makes sense.

New website looks great -- good work!
Richard Thomas 2008-09-08
Snatch: 65kg
(These felt rubbish today - which has in turn put me in a terrible mood!)

C&J: 85kg

Front Squat: 100kg

GHD sit ups and knees to Elbows
Dave Wagner 2008-09-08
I haven't been posting either, but following the program religiously.

Snatch- 115
C&J- 205 (PR)
Front Squat- 255 (PR)

I am getting stronger for sure and getting my snatch squared away. Technique is flawed (I can power snatch way more than I can I can snatch) but it's coming along.

Thanks Greg!
MAWL 2008-09-14
Snatch: 95

Not feeling it at all today!

Ring push-ups: 15/15/10,5
