Jerks and Powers

I just didn’t want to train today! However, the session went extremely well! I decided to jerk to about 90% (the plan was to get a max for the day), as I felt rough. I missed 130 on the first attempt. Then the second was…well, lets call it a training make!? Now, 135 would’ve been 90% but I threw caution to the wind and jumped straight to 140. It turned out to be the best jerk of the day! Smooth, fast, straight up and down with no adjustments needed in the split! BOOM! Time for a PB attempt? Why not?

Next time, for sure!

Thursday 31st January 2013

Jerk to max for the day – 140kg

Then 80% x 1 x 3 – 112.5kg

Power clean – 73% x 3 x 3 – 110kg

Great session! Bring on SINGLET FRIDAY!

Powers and the return of some conditioning

Lower volume today because I have introduced some GPP. The plan was to build to 3 working singles and then hit the triplet. I was feeling good so after the working sets I carried on until I missed…that said the 140 PB took me 4 attempts. I missed 2, caught 1 too low, then nailed the 4th!

Tuesday 8th January 2013

Power snatch – 80% (of full snatch) x 1 x 4 – 87.5kg 

I carried on snatching through to 100kg

Power clean & power jerk – 80% (of full C&J) x 1 x 4 – 115kg

I carried on to 140 with the clean.

Power Variations & Skwatz at Reebok CrossFit Glevum

I love training some different – a change is as good as a rest, right?

I’m enjoying the power variations and I’m hoping that they’ll help speed up my turnover.

Tuesday 13th November

Heavy (not max) power snatch double – 100kg


Heavy (not max) power clean/power clean/power jerk – 130kg

Squat to max double – 195kg (I tried 200kg but I mistimed the bounce coming out of the bottom on the 2nd rep)


Pleased with that today! PB power snatch and squat!


P.S – Check out the KRATOS RXD stash! I’m sure it played a role my two PBs!



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!
