I had a fun training session today where I was more co-ordinated than the previous day, thankfully. Harry did give out to me for indulging in wishful weightlifting when I did not immediately start on the numbers that I finished with a few weeks ago. This is a lesson that made me reassess what I want to do tomorrow. Simply put, the fatigue built up from the last cycyle of training and working in that summer camp-- which was really tiring!-- means that I have to build up again and then take over from where I was.
I will be going to California for two and a half weeks on Thursday, so I guess it will start off after that. I will train a bit while over there, but only to maintain where I am at. A few days after I return, myself, Cathal Byrd and Andy Murphy will be training in Charlie 'Chick' Hamilton's gym in Kilmarnok, Scotland for a week which should be a great learning experience. Anyway, here is what I did today:
Power Snatch--I worked up to 3x3 @80--These were more tiring than heavy. Harry was reminding me to stay over the bar while keeping my back locked.
2 Cleans + 1 Jerk--I worked up to 4x2@110--I missed the first Jerk due to a lack of concentration, but I nailed every one after that. Even though this is a weight I have used for a triple in the Power Clean, they felt relatively heavy. Two sets are in the video below, so any constructive criticism is welcome.
Back Squats--3x3@140--I left it light because I will be doing some Back Squat singles tomorrow.
