Friday, FUN DAY!

Pretty good session today The snatch was, well…it was the snatch! Got under 107.5 five times, just couldn’t stick it! I lost them all forward after a good 2-3 second battle to regain it. The clean is back on track, it would seem! I stood up with 147.5 today, nearly stuck the jerk too! looking forward to tapering next week!

Friday – Max Day – Chasing 110

Well, it felt like today was going to be the day that I caught the unicorn…it escaped me once more. I have set a goal of catching the elusive 110kg beast by Christmas. I’m getting closer and closer yet, every week she manages to slip away. I catch it unaware, I move fast enough to get underneath however, my arms lag behind and I can’t seem to flip it over at the last minute to stand her up. We’ll try again next week.

Oh, by the way, we lifted to some EPICNESS today, listen to this!

Friday 16th November

Max snatch – 107.5kg (The best snatch I’ve ever made. Crisp turnover, sitting in the pocket. Only one attempt required!)

Max C&J – 140kg (I went for 145 once before jumping to 147.5 for a C&J PB. In hindsight, I’d of just attempted 145 again for a total PB…my legs were toast!)

Pleased with 107.5/140/247.5. I’ll break the 250 barrier next week.

Have a great weekend y’all



I haven’t done really heavy power variations in quite a while; probably back before regionals! IT.FELT.GOOD!

I set 15 minute time limits so that I couldn’t go crazy with the volume. I think the session went quite well!

Tuesday 6th November

15 minutes to establish 1RM power snatch – 100kg (7.5kg PB)

15 minutes to establish 1RM power clean, double power jerk – 130kg (PB – only because it’s a complex I’ve never done before…I’m taking it!)

15 minutes to establish 3RM front squat – 165kg (5kg PB – I also got 170×2 which is a double PB)

It was a running clock, so no rest time between elements. I got quite a sweat on!


Twas fun though!
