Anvil or Hammer


Plan B

I was off to the gym today but no class afterward. It worked out well. I pulled up to UB there were no parking spaces. Considering my options, I decided to go to Dumbarton instead.

Cleans
40K X 5
60K X 5
80K X 4
90 K X 3
95 K X 2
100K  X 0/3
105K X 1/2
110K X 1/2
115K X 0/2
100K X 1
These went well, as you can see. I still have mountains of work to do on catching the bar. The pull doesn’t seem to be an issue. I can still tap my chest with 115, i just can’t catch it. Even my successful catches have issues. I really catch out in front of my body and have roll to my toes, bring my body to the bar, to complete the lift.

Jerks
80K X 3

My sciatic nerve was really bothering me and I was totally failing to focus.

Squat
135 X 5
225 X 5
275 2 X 8
Because squats always make my hips feel better.

Bottom Position Quarter Squats (bar at the bottom of the chest)
405 X 5
495 X 4
545 X 3
585 X 2
I wanted to play with some real weight so I worded on these. It went well.

Pull Ups
5, 3, 1
Dips
3 x 5
These were just the wrap up,  not nearly enough effort made here.

In other news, both Chris and Scott S have started doing 10 minutes Snatch tests. Good luck guys.

I guess it’s time I got back to humiliating myself in that way too :-).

Monday Morning Weigh in: 234.6

Posted in Diet and Bodyweight by Mike on March 31, 2008

ok weight for the week.

In other news, I didn’t get my usual food prep done this week. Normally this is where I think “hooray, an excuse to eat sushi!” Instead I dug around and found a couple pitas and two cans of tuna. I made tuna salad at the last minute and brought that with me instead. Probably better all around.
