  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

Looks like I have to forgo the P/L meet here as well.  I'm going to be in Chicago that week and so unable to compete.

No Cable Cable Rows

175x5
200x5
225x5
250x5
280x3

And that's good enough.

Right shoulder was a champ on presses.  Possibly stayed too light today - no press was in doubt. Back is fatigued from yesterday so went for a nice triple and called it good.

205x1

Clean & Press
140x2
150x2
160x2
170 1x10 sets

I was totally off on snatches today. Butt rise was very prevalent adn I couldn't keep the bar close. Tried the tape on the elbows trick and I think I pretty much kept my arms straight...even past the point I was supposed to. Not getting full triple extension still, I'm pretty sure. 120 felt heavy and the whole snatch session was a struggle.

In contrast, C&J's went beautifully. Timing getting under the bar was right on. Took another person's advice and didn't rush the jerk. Right shin has a perma-scrape.

zerchers later or maybe tomorrow

edit:

A lot of folks are reading the three/four active logs.  Why isn't anyone starting their own here?

No better way to get feedback on what you're doing in my opinion and folks are generally supportive rather than needlessly critical in the Olympic weightlifting and powerlifting sphere.  It's only the bodybuilders who have the catfights in my experience.

C'mon, start a log!

2010-4-14

Bench Press (ring finger on rings)
140x8
160x3
180x3
200x3
220x3
240x3 (That's promising!)
260x1,1,1 (paused for 3 count each)
235x5

That went better than expected. Benching a little higher on the torso - my shoulders seem to appreciate that. Chest supported rows and kerls later after work meetings

(never came back to it)

===================================

2010-4-16
Box Squat (18" box)
barx10
135x5
225x5
275x3
315x3
355x3
385x1
365x3

400x1
345x5

2-Board Manpon Bench
full range w/u
barx10
135x5
185x3
215x3
245x3
Add 2-board manpon
265x3
285x1 (and it was hard)

Body don't like benching after squatting.  Shoulders felt weird, weird. Just stopped there.  Might try again tomorrow.

Clean and press
115x3
135x3
155x3
165 1x9 sets, 2x1 set (20-count between reps)

Cheat Rows
185x5
235x5
255x5,5

BB Curls
115x5
125x4,3
135x1

Squats robbed everything else.  Was a little nervous on them today due to not even being able to stand up straight right away upon waking.  Got warmed up and cinched the belt tight, cleaned the sand out of my ladyparts and squatted.  Went fine.  I have some form work to do though.  Picking my butt up off the box rather than squeezing myself off it.  Maybe that's just my style, but it doesn't seem proper.

Had Mr. Trainer and his acolyte in today during squats.  Not a word did I hear this time.  Mr. Weightzenklanger was in as well.  You ain't badass unless you makin' more noise than necessary to get the job done.

Weird day. I felt as though I were strong, but I couldn't deliver that last bit of oomph to the bar. All poundages down about 10%.

Weight is down to 193. I haven't been paying attention to eating again.

And that's all.  Gonna be sore in the shoulders day after tomorrow, I think.  First 15 C&P no problem.  Easy clean easy press.  The last 3 were a little tough.

Squats were done with the gym's skinny generic belt.  Not much support, but I got it done.

275x3
315x3
345x1
365x1  (PR height weight, whatever.  Took some grunting to get off the box cleanly)
355x1

Belt makes the difference.  My belt is superior to that belt at the Ravenswood gym.

Floor Press
135x5
225x3
245x3
255x1,1 (damn, damn)
245x2,2 (shit, shit)

1-arm DB Rows w straps
150x5,5
no straps
150x5

Bunches o snatches of various kinds at various weights.  Made my shoulders feel pretty good.

Floor press - 45's are NOT all equally 45.  Thank you, China.  It's good though, because the bar was heavier on the right side, my weak side, so I had to work a little harder for the reps.  But my reps were definitely down.

Trainer day at the commercial gym.  Dammit - those guys should look like they train themselves at least.  One of them was teaching his client to do half-squats - termed simply as squats.  So now the guy thinks that THAT is what is a squat.  Oh well, nunnama bidness.

Clean and Press (1 clean per n presses)
115x3
135x3
155x3
175x3, 2x6 sets

Front squat
235 3x5 sets

That's all for today - midback got hit really hard on the deads and snatch grip deads previous session so no pulling today.  Wanted to rep today and I think it was a good decision since everything felt heavy.  Trained outside in the sunshine with my shirt off.  Sun felt good and I was starting to get energized by the end of the session.

Box Squat (parallel, 3 count pause)

325x1
345 1x10 sets

Hepburn cheat row
250x1, 3x5 sets

Strict BB Curl from hang
125x2,2,2,5

Not bad. Need to pair up the upper body stuff and watch the rest periods so the workout goes quicker. This took an hour and a half. Didn't do butt-off-the-floor floor presses as I wanted to see if I'd recovered at all. I'm using aerobic steps to rest the weight on for them. They are almost the right height. I do have to kind of roll the weight up into position, which makes the movement a little more challenging and might be hard on the wrists once the weight gets heavier.

Presses: Trouble keeping my line on presses.  Still tired from the 20 sets a few days ago.

Rack Pulls: Very pleased.  Haven't done any at that height for months and it's nice to see it's progressed.

Snatch grip: Thought I could do reps at that weight, but wasn't certain.  Happy with this too.

Chins:  Was getting impatient with singles and getting tired so I clustered these bad boys

CGBP:  Getting my right elbow in the right places and getting more stim in the triceps and shoulder.

Had a big boy in the gym today.  Sonuvagun bent my favorite bar.  Glad there's someone around capable of that.  Sucked for me, though.

Weighted Walk
235 2x120 feet - lotta oscillation when stepping on the right side today.

I forgot to mention that I tried some simulated Atlas Stone pickups. Took one of my ironmind loading pins to the gym with me, stacked up some weights, put the pin through them and picked them up. I tried to stand straight up with the stack against my chest/stomach but I couldn't keep my grip so I didn't get them very far off my lap.

180x1
270x1

Some old fella was giving me the crazy eyeball while I did this. It must have looked like a freakishly stupid thing to be doing.

What weight and exercise was used to bend the bar? Just curious!

The weighted walk: Did you use DBs or a BB with weight?
