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!

M/27/5'10"/180lbs Snatch:95x3,135x2,185,205,215(f),215(PR) C&J:135x2,185,215 FS:185x2,225,265,285(f) 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) C&J: 190 lbs. (not sure if this is a pr or not but close enough) FS: 275 lbs. (pr)

Tommi - Just do next week as RXed.

Robb- 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.
tommi k 11 | 2008-09-06
Greg- Yes,thanks.

I haven't been posting either, but I'm one of Jesse's two clients who had a rad day! Snatch--115# (10#PR) C&J--140# (15#PR) FS--175

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 16 | 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.

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 18 | 2008-09-07
Thanks, Greg, that makes sense. New website looks great -- good work!
Richard Thomas 19 | 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 20 | 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 21 | 2008-09-14
Snatch: 95 C&J: 155 Not feeling it at all today! Chin-ups: 9,8,7 Ring push-ups: 15/15/10,5
