MUCH BETTER TODAY! This may be a coincidence however, I didn’t take my Kratos Nutrition Fuel Rxd before my session yesterday. I didn’t make the same mistake today and I had a far better session! #rocketfuel
Tuesday 17th October
Snatch to hang snatch – 80-90-95(f)-95-100(f)-100
Clean, clean, jerk, jerk – 100-110-120-125-130
*This should be re-branded as (Rocket) Fuel Rx’d
Today was a good training day. Pause variations are, normally, a weakness as I don’t move under the bar very fast. I tend to rely on a huge pull to give me time to receive the bar a little higher. I set two PBs today. Pause snatch (at patella tendon) and pause clean/pause jerk, all pauses held for a 2 seconds…counted ‘Mississippily’
Monday 1st October
Pause snatch – 100kg
Pause clean and pause jerk – 125kg
4×3 back squat – 170kg
This is what my pause jerk felt like…only it was 80kg lighter
I can officially say that I am a Kratos Nutrition Sponsored Athlete and a member of Team Kratos, along with some great athletes who are taking part in Train Manchester‘s ‘inov-8 4 Nations event‘ this weekend. The other team members are focussing on CrossFit whereas my sole focus is now on weightlifting. Good luck guys!
There are a few guys competing in a weightlifting comp at Dragon CrossFit in Cardiff tomorrow. I can’t make it unfortunately, but it promises to be quite competitive!
It’s been a pretty good training week! PB snatch from low blocks of 100kg, new 5RM front squat at 150kg (with something left in the tank) and 3RM push press PB at 110kg. Oh, I forgot to mention today!
Friday 28th September
Max snatch – 100kg
I got right under 107.5, only for my right elbow to go soft (as usual) and the bar nearly land on my head. It’s going high enough and back enough, just missing the timing of locking it out.
Max C&J – 137.5kg (2.5kg PB)
Max clean – 145kg (2.5kg PB)
I got stuck under 150kg. To be honest, I didn’t think I was going to get under it…it took me be surprise!
Good luck to everyone in the 4 Nations event tomorrow! Go Team Wales and Team Kratos!
