Friday's freewheeling

I had a good session on Friday night. I was not feeling fresh or particularly energetic, but I enjoyed it none the less. When I finished my warm up I did the counter movement jump test and I got 49.4cm which far better than my previous best of 47.6. I consistently jumped 47's and 48's in my 5 or 6 jumps and I was pleasantly surprised to get the pb. After this I did the following:

Snatch Pulls to warm up: 1x2@60, 60, 70, 80

Snatch--1x2@40, 50, 60 1x1@70, 80, 87.5, 92.5, 97.5, 100, I then missed 102.5 three times due to a lack of finish. I had very little speed and it was weird that I got the cmj pb.

Front Squat + Jerk--1+1@70, 70, 100, 115, 120, 125, 130--I had to fight hard to lock out and the weight forced me under more than usual, but I was happy to get it.

Front Squat--1x1@135, 145, 155--I did these few singles to finish off the workout.

I enjoyed my workout and did around 45 minutes of yoga, but I was very fatigued by the end of it. Have a look at these videos of the super heavyweights lifting in the 1999 world championships.

You probably didn't get your 102 snatch because of your cmj before your workout. Just my opinion. Weightlifting is totally neuromuscular in nature and if only takes the slightest detraction to take away from performing your best on that particular day

By the way man. I enjoy your postings, it is cool to see other people on the same journey I'm become the best weightlifter they can be with the tools given. Keep up your training and stay on your path.
