Just lift heavy

It would seem that, sometimes, to get better at lifting heavy you just need to lift heavy!

TUESDAY – 102.5/135
WEDNESDAY – 102.5/135
THURSDAY – 107.5/137.5

I’ve got a few days off now. Rest, regeneration and focus for one more big week of training!

Monday – The Return of INTENSITY

I didn’t post about my MAX OUT day on Friday. I totalled 105/140 and a 165 FS. Fairly happy!

Today was great. Building to 90-95% of max! My body felt great all day!

Monday 4th February 2013

Snatch to 90-95% x 1 – 102.5

C&J to 90-95% x 1 – 135

Front Squat to 90% x 1 – 157.5

I’m hoping that the volume of the last month will start to pay off over the next 2-3 weeks!
