June 25th 2012
The volume load was higher on Friday but my body seems to be settling back into a lifting proram quite quickly. I felt no after effects over the weekend, whereas the first volume session smoked me! I didin’t quite manage my target on the snatch but nailed the squat and push press, with some left in the tank.
20 miutes to establish 1RM snatch – 97.5kg (I got under 100kg 3 times. Losing out the back on the first, soft at the bottom on the second and out in front on the third…it’s definitely there though)
20 minutes to establish 3RM back squat – 180kg (185kg was doable today, I think. I just want to keep the numbers rising each week)
20 minutes to establish 3RM push press – 105kg (Shoulder and wrist felt ok under the load, which is encouraging)
Mentally, I’m glad that 12.1 is out of the way…burpees don’t agree with me. Bring on 12.2!
Training has been good again this week. We’ve been hitting hand release push ups every week as they can slow me down.
C&J to heavy single
110kg (my shoulder started playing up)
3 rounds for time:
30 hand release pushups
15 single arm DB power snatch (L&R), 20kg
1RM front squat
155 (it felt comfortable too)
3×3 back squat using the front squat weight
20/40/60m suicides (10m and back, 20m and back, 30m and back)
10 DB squat cleans, 20kg
Rest 1 min between rounds
10 rounds + 4 cleans
Prehab circuit of briefcase carries, reverse hypers and face pulls
Power snatch to heavy single
All in all, I’m happy with how things are going; now I’d just like something short and heavy tomorrow!
