All weight in lbs: Snatch 145# PR Clean and Jerk 190# PR, but the jerk was not pretty. Pain in right wrist is making lockout difficult. Back Squat 270# PR

Greg, If we are one day behind because of Christmas, should we take off tomorrow? Or do this workout tomorrow and just keep continuing and skip the day off?

Snatch 185 Lbs Clean & Jerk 225 Lbs Back Squat Didn't even try... NOT a good day. Everything felt great at first, but once I got past 185# in the Snatch, the wheels fell off. Slow, sloppy, you name it. Same for C&J. Both lifts were 20 & 30# below PR numbers, but felt twice as heavy. I finished with some clean up work and called it. Back squats were not in the cards. Since having to go back to work & being on graves, I can feel it. Reminds me of the "sleepless squats" video from a while back...ugh...

M/25/76kg/178cm Snatch 85kg (PR 87kg) Clean & Jerk 100kg (PR 111kg) Back Squat 160kg (PR 160kg) Not a good day, although started out well. Snatches were perfect up till 85kg. Luckily had my video camera with and could see that I was letting the bar drift away from my body in the second pull. Clean & Jerk; had very little power in the Jerk. Dipping slightly forward, but getting better.

38 yom/173cm/69kg Weights in pounds today Snatch 142 (PR) Clean and Jerk 202 (PR) (although may have been red lighted for the press out on the jerk) Kids ran out of patience in the gym so couldn't get to the back squat. Looking forward to continued progress throughout the rest of the cycle. Thanks, Greg.

Sn 165# My thrird pull is still too slow, and depth is lacking. C&J 245# Cleans went to 260#, but the jerk simply would not go. BS 315# Plenty of depth. OHS 175# (PR!) Added on a couple sets just to test out my overhead stability. I'll never snatch more unless I'm more comfortable with bigger weights overhead.
Brent 13 | 2010-01-16
Snatch - 201 PR by 15 lbs Clean & jerk up to 230, small press out at 240. Something finally clicked on snatches today, and my 3rd pull was far better than it has ever been. Able to catch some weight now that I'm getting under it. But I was wiped for C&J. Back squat up to 345, just missed 365. (355 PR)
