The video in this post has one of the most important feats of strength you will proabably ever see. I am deadly serious here and the last part of the video will prove my point; I am not so sure you will ever see anything like this again.
In my own training, the weights felt heavy, but I made the numbers set in my program. Like before, I am slowly building up the amount of weight I am lifting and this gradual increase is really helping my Snatch. I am feeling a lot smoother in the pull and the catch. In warming up I did my back mobility and it is a little frustrating doing this because at the moment it does not feel like it is helping. I realise that it is important so I will continue to do it. I used the power plate again and did lots of bar work. My flexibilty around the hips is really improving as I have been focusing on relaxing the muscles around the area and I am far more comfortable in a wider stance in the Snatch, Clean and squatting positions.
Power Snatch--3x3@40 1x2@60 1x1@80, 84 for three singles.
Clean and Jerk--1x2@60, 60, 80 1x1@100, 110, 120 for three singles.
Front Squat--1x2@125, 135 for three doubles.
On Saturday, I am going down to Limerick to train with Cathal Byrd, Murph, Paudie Roche and hopefully Sean O'Sullivan. Zag is coming down also, so it should be a fun filled afternoon's lifting. The Irish squad session is on the weekend after, so the next few weeks should be a great stimulis. I have training tomorrow and then a lighter, recovery/technique based session on Friday so I should be relatively fresh for Saturday. Have a look at the video and let me know what you think. The last part will go down in history.
