Monday's momentum

I had enjoyable session with Zag and Wayne Healy today. Wayne is a 69kg lifter and he decided to compete in Cork; he has been training once a week for the last four or five weeks, and as you will see in the video below, his lifting is still quality. His best lifts as a 62kg lifter were 112/137.5kg and he competed in several World and European Championships in the early years of this decade.

I kept it light and fast today and everything went relatively smoothly. I did a glute prehab and some Miyake Pulls to warm up.

Power Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 50, 60, 70 1x1@80, 90, 95--This last lift was caught at parallel. The back felt fine although as the video shows, I still have a bit more to go.

Power Clean and Jerk--1x1@70, 80, 90, 100, 110

I did a few light sets of squats with 110kg to get some blood flowing and keep the legs active. I finished the session off with some hanging ab work and later that evening, I had an ART session which focused on my sore left elbow, my two wrists and my hips. All in all, I feel pretty good today.

Have a look at the video and leave any comments or feedback. There is a bonus feature to tonight's video with some guest lifting from Nat Callaghan over in Scotland, so leave him any feedback that you see fit.

That Wayne Healy guy looks pretty good... :)

Even with the Power Snatch and Clean you need to lock your back the way you were on Saturday with the full lifts.

Also, make sure to engage your lifts before you jerk: If you look back at your 110kg there's some lordosis in your lower back which will effect your jerk.

Great to see Wayne back lifting again, 95/120 look like openers, very sharp. Looking forward to seeing him lift in Cork.

Baz and Zag, ye are looking good so just keep everything nice and quick and there will be pbs in Cork.

Wayne lifts weights that are so heavy even car alarms outside are set off.

Wayne possibly convinced to compete for the Club Team Championships?!

Wayne is competing in the Club Championships in Cork. It should be interesting to see how he gets on.
