Double day today. It took a while to get going this morning. Had to take a few extra warm up sets to start, once the joints where oiled up things seemed to go pretty well. I’m really please with how today went, I really tried to focus on getting my hip to go straight down when moving under the bar. It is easier said than done but it’s already starting to feel more natural.
It’s been a while since I’ve been able to say this but, I hit a PB today! Hopefully this is the start of a good wave!
Friday 22nd March
Max Snatch – 107.5kg (attempted 112.5kg, failed again!)
Max C&J – 142.5kg (attempted 147.5 for a PB, missed the jerk)
Max Clean – 152.5kg (2.5kg PB)
Back Squat – 182.5kgx3
Really please with today!
We have two Olympic weightlifting workshops coming up in April. The one on the 6th April, at The Boat Shed, is sold out and there are only 3 spaces left for the workshop, at Reebok CrossFit Glevum, on April 20th. Book using the form below.
I attended a conference today and the subject was tendinopathy in running athletes. There were some great speakers including Frans Bosch, Raph Brandon and Craig Ranson, to name but a few! I have pages of notes to digest and I’ll get some thoughts up soon.
I managed to get a quick session in at CrossFit Northampton – the guys were kind enough to open their doors. You should check the facility out!
Wednesday 20th March 2013
3 position snatch (Floor/below knee/hi hang) – 97.5kg (2.5kg PB)
Shankle complex – 130kg (equal PB)
Front squat – 135x3x5
This is the Shankle Complex. I could have posted my 130 but this is FAR more enjoyable to watch!
