Snatch - 120 x 1 x 3 Clean & jerk - 180 x 1 x 3 Front squat - 230 x 2 x 2 L-sit practice Just really wasn't in it mentally today, couldn't seem to get solid in the overhead position on the snatch.

snatch - 72.5kg c&j - 92.5kg front squat - 100kg 3 sets + 3 sets of back squat Ab work on the rings later on. I failed twice on the snatch, too much laughing and distraction between sets.

Really rough day today. Lack of sleep, and then my back went to shit after the snatch. S: 145lbs C&J: Just couldn't get them up. Back sapped all power. FS: 265 lbs. Dropped it on the 2nd set. Just wasnt there today at all Abs: V-ups, hollow rocks, TGU-sit ups.

Greg, Is the fact that my snatch and c&j feels heavier than it should a common side-effect of the Bulgarian cycle ? Thank you, -Rich

Richard - Assuming this is your first (or even second) exposure to this type of training, yes, it's normal to be very tired right now and have all your lifts feel heavy and slow. Likely by the last week you'll be feeling better, and definitely by the next Bulgarian cycle. It takes time to become conditioned to this kind of training.

Snatch 165x1x3, 3 fails in between there due to sloppy technique. Lack of sleep a big factor, though the singles I did make felt great. This was my snatch PR at the beginning of the strength cycle! C&J 205 x 1 x 3 felt easy, very snappy jerk Front Squat: 240x2x2 solid. 2 sets: 10 hanging leg lifts (used straps to safe my aching elbow tendon) 10 KB cross-chops each side, 20kg KB

well my lifting day has been effed from the beginning. teaching the 9:00 crossfit class and then my kids soccer games were spaced out just so that i wouldn't have time to do the whole workout (but they did win both their games). however, i did squeeze in time for some snatch work. snatch: 180x1 pr got it on the 3rd attempt. real happy with my improvement on the snatch. these workouts are great. thanks greg and aimee for all the great info on this site.

Sn: 198#x1x3 C&J: 225#x1x3 FS: 248#x2x2 Snatch felt heavy and footwork was off. Glad Richard asked that question b/c I'm feeling run down too. C&J felt great. I've tweaked my start as well as when I hit my second pull. 225 was an easy power clean.
Richard Vanmeerbeek 15 | 2008-09-20
Thanks for the response Greg. It's my first exposure to this cycle indeed so it's definitely a work in progress. I'm sure I'll feel more energized once I'm used to it. What's definitely wearing me out is lowering the barbell for all of my lifts, I can't dump at my gym. Glad I wasn't the only one feeling it. Enjoy your Sunday everyone !

snatch 215 C n J 275 Did back squat 405 x2 x3
Justin "Thor" 17 | 2008-09-20
Yeah, glad it wasn't only me as well... I was thinking maybe I was getting sick as today just seemed I was working in a swamp. No energy at all. Plus been back on the "diet" this past week and that isn't helping as well. Anyways, have a great rest day all!!!

Wow, it's interesting to see several of us report being in a bit of a funk yesterday. It's a bit encouraging to know that it's not just me that was struggling with the snatches yesterday. The C&J felt pretty good, though. On a side note, for the last 2 weeks, I've been drinking 3L of whole milk a day [and 17 Zone blocks (2x fat)] in an attempt to put on a few more pounds since I'm focusing on strength. I've put on about 4-lbs and it seems that almost all of it is muscle. I'd like to get up around 193 (189 now) before going back to the mainpage after this cycle, and then lean back down to 190.
