Saturday's salvo

I finished the first week of my program and I feel the better for it. Byrdie was up today to train and he joined myself, Zag and Wayne. I am training five days a week; Saturday will be the max of the day session for the classical lifts and Front squat. During the week, two of the days I will go up to six doubles at 80% and two days with 85% with both the Snatch and the Clean and Jerk. I will Back squat two days and Front squat on the other days. It is all very simple and it looks so much easier on paper than it actually is to perform; however, doubles can be grinders and the best thing is that they are precisely what I need. It will be a case of inching up my lifts and numbers and getting my body to tolerate a higher workload while working on getting stronger and better technically. That is the plan at least and I am going to stick with it.

I am working on a California Strength video at the moment and it will take a while to get it fully right. The videos here are embarrassing, but helpful in improving flexibility:

To leave on an alternative note, have a look at this video and challenge yourself to watch it without laughing:
