Tuesday's trial

I had a good session tonight. I had a very busy day in work and a poor night's sleep, so I was not sure what to expect. Harry gave me the plan and it was mercifully short and sweet. The biggest thing for me tonight was that I focused on my lifts in the way that Harry (click here to see) and Hugh (click here) suggested in their comments. I gave each lift, despite it relatively low weight, all my focus and concentration. This meant that even though they were not pretty, they were fast. Either way, I did not go sailing and give myself a way out. Here is what I did:

Overhead Squats--6x5 with loads of flexibility in between.
Drop Snatch--1x3@bar, bar, bar, 40, 50, 60
Jerk Dips/ Catches/ Split Jerk--1x3@40
Clean and Jerk--1x2@60, 70 1x1@70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 115--It took me a while to get into the groove with pushing myself under the jerk so I did a few extra lighter sets.
Back Squats--1x2@60, 90, 110, 120, 130 for 3 sets
Plank with ab vacuum--4x30 on/off

Harry has me on a low volume week because we have the UL competition on Saturday and also because I am still wrecked from the hardest, but most rewarding four weeks of training in my seven month weightlifting career. I have another session on Thursday and then the competition on Saturday, so I should be fresh by then.
