Wednesday's write up

I had a short and sweet session on Wednesday which lasted an hour and a quarter in total. I am quite busy at the moment and this, allied to my training over the last few weeks, means that I am tired, but content with how my training is going. Everything was very light again and is supposed to be a sort of active recovery. Here is what I did:

A fifteen minute warm up with stretching, some bar work and basic mobility drills that we used to do when we were eight years old. You have to love the classics!

Power Snatch doubles--I worked up to a double with 80kg.

2 Cleans and 1 Jerk--I worked up to a set with 100 and I left it there.

Front Squat doubles--I worked up to an easy double with 120 and that was that.

There is an idea that it takes 10,000 hours to master an art, sport etc. The article is fascinating so I suggest you read it. This video has some similarities with it also and I found it very encouraging as a person and as a weightlifter:

Here are a few nice weightlifting videos to end the post:

Last but not least is a variation of video I posted before, but Pablo Lara is a legend and his technique is exemplary:
