    yeah, I never had a real interest in competing in powerlifting, so I figured why not oly lifting. I always thought it looked cool, lol. I think this will help for my eventual move into the highland games stuff too

    oh snap, highland games.. now we're on the same page.

    lol


    o-lifting is fun, but it takes a lot of time. I wish I had more time to focus on it but I jsut can't recover from 2 heavy sessions + 3 throwing days /week... I really want to do an OL meet though, so later this year I'll try to shift focus a little.. I am doing snatches today before moving onto push jerks and upper stuff, so I fit them in where I can.

    Monday
    Hip + Hang Snatch: Up to 85kgs, missed 90
    Snatch: 90x0 90x0 (wtf, right) 90x1 (corrected my issues) 95x1 100x1 105x1(PR) 110x0(had it, but put head down for some reason, and the bar/chest followed. It will fall soon)
    Few hours later
    Squats: 70x3 90x2 110x2 130x2 145x2 156x2 167x2 176kg(389lbs)x2

    Joe(my oly coach) has video of the 105(and 110 miss, for that matter) so I can probably get that up soon. Getting better everyday.

    been slacking on squats, so I am going to start really adding in the volume. Although I was pleased with the 176x2. 200 will fall within a few months though.

    Snacth: 95x1 100x0 100x1 106x0 106x0 106x0 (should have had 2 of these, just not my day to snatch)
    Squats: 90x2 110x2 130x2 150x2 161x2 170x1 177x1 184kg (406lb)x1 (Beltless PR) 160x3 160x3
    RDLs: 136x5 136x5

    Not my day snatching, just a little off. Plus I always seem to snatch better with my coach. Good to know that I can hit 100 when off though. I am making more of an effort to drive my squats up, so hopefully it works out.

    No Hook, No Feet Snatch: 42x2 42x2 51x2 60x2 70x2 76x1 83x1
    C+J: 83x2 93x2 101x1 111x1 120x1 125x0(Got pinned, could not stand, WTF) 125x0(missed jerk) 125x1 130x0(Got pinned, stood up, missed jerk due to no energy left, WTF) 130x0(Fuck this)
    Front Skwats: 130x1 140x1 145x2 145x2 145x2 151x2

    dudes, I could not stand up from cleans, lol. Like it felt heavy as fuck and so did that 130 and 140 front skwat. I am actually somewhat pleased that I made all those doubles and doubled 151/334 at the end but wtf was going on during the cleans, lol.

    the no hook no feet snatches went ok too but fuck me on those cleans

    on another note, don't eat a 3 meat french bread pizza for pretraining meal. Well don't eat definitely. Maybe that was part of the issue today. I will stick to rice/beef/green beans or broccoli or brussel sprouts from now on.

    Nice work on the squat PR... sounds like maybe you were just out of position on the cleans and that is why you ended up pinned?

    Thanks Tom.

    That is most likely the reason, and I also have a tendency to sometimes lose my tightness (on snatches too), and kind of collapse. So that does not help things, lol

    Log Press: Up to 220 one-motioning it. Then 230 for an easy double and back down to 180 for 8 cleaning each rep and one-motioning each rep.
    Stones: Up to 305 to 54Ē for a single (really a double, since I lost the first one on the bar being lazy)


    Was going to do some front squats later, but decided to save it and just hit it hard tomorrow.

    Well I could, I just think that I could get the same (or very close to it) results from training 5-6 times a week and squatting 3-4 times a week.

    Overhead Squats: 40kgsx2 40x2 (Just to warmup a little)

    Pendlay Rows: 81x2x6
    Twist Things: 50x2x6

    Starting a new squat type prgram for back squats that goes like this

    choose a weight a bit higher than your best clean and do this
    6x4
    5x5
    4x6
    add weight, go back to 6x4...
    you progress a rep range when it feels less challenging than before (on a different day of course). I've found that focusing less on squat 1RMs has made me a much better lifter.
    2 minutes rest in between sets btw. no more, no less.

    Shit was hard

    These are the twist things I am speaking of

    Cleans: 90x2 100x2 110x2 120x2 Figured out what I am doing wrong, starting with ass too low/too upright. I have longish femurs, so I need to start like I do in the snatch. Look for cleans to shoot way up now.

    Squats: 100x2 115x2 130x2 140x1 150x5 (realized that this squat thing isnít going to work. Just going to do 5/3/1 for back squats, but will figure something out for the other days)
    Deads: 151x1 181x1 201x1 228(502)x1

    1st time doing deads in a long time. Well about a month since the last strongman show, and had not really pulled much since then either. Need to make sure that I am at least deadlifting once every 2 weeks. I was tired, and it's at the end of the week, so not too disappointed in it. Going to run 5/3/1 for back squats I think. Then just front squat or something on other days. 5/3/1 really worked well for my squats before, so I don't see why it won't work for my beltless squats.

    Pretty happy with 105 snatch considering the doubles up to it.

    228/502 dead

    BTW, bumpers make what you are actually deadlifting look like it's a lot more, lol

    Starting 5/3/1 for Beltless Back Squats and Push Press

    Well I have used it before for belted squats, and for strongman type jerks. Think I will do the 5/3/1 squats on Tuesdays, and push presses on Thursday. I will then also front squat on Thursdays and probably on Saturdays as well.

    Using 180kg for squat max, a little low, but ok. 118kg for Presses. So 90% for cycle 1 training weights are:
    Squats: 162kg
    Push Press: 106kg
