As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  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.

PP: Started out not sure if I would complete more than 3 sets.  Finished thinking I could do them all day.
FS: Getting a better setup on these.  Elbows high, shoulders up, chest out and knees wide, look up. Tried a belt on the first three sets, but wasn't getting anything out of it so I ditched it.  Shortened the rest times on the last 5 sets.
Holds: The last set today was easier than last time I did them @125.  Setting my shoulders better to hold the weight longer.

Note to self:  Every time I quit grumbling and get happy while training, the whole session just starts flowing.  Work on that.

A bazillion snatches @135 - doubles and triples - only one of which was caught correctly, many of which were dropped. I'm working on catching them lower.The weight feels light (because it is), I'm just missing the correct line. Closer to it each session, though.

I thought that yesterday's lifting would be a bit of a break due to the drop in volume on the main lift, but I feel like I've been run over by a PMS'ing caterpillar tractor today and I got that creaky done-too-much malaise.  I think I need a lifting time-out.  Arms feel like they're nailed into my shoulders with crooked 2-penny nails, poorly, and the old knees are begging to live with someone else.

I think some light and fast reps days are in order.

1 arm 1 leg BB snatches? Madness.

I may be in your neck of the woods for a few days soon for work. Going to try to take a few days holiday as well and hang out with various strength training people. I'll keep you posted with details and if you're about maybe we could get a lift in!

Snatch
75 2x3
95x2
105 2x2
115 2x10

HiBar SQ
185x3
215x3
245x3
275x2
305x1
335 1x2

MP
135 5x3

Pullups
BW 10x3

Snatches felt good. I always drop them when I don't finish the pull. I def have weakness in the bottom, literally, which makes catching the weight low difficult once I get a bit fatigued. Only more snatches will fix this.

Squats felt heavy. This weight should be light for me. I'm not surprised though, since I lost 10 pounds over my break.

Kept presses lighter since I'm doing them differently. Keeping the elbows out more or the right elbow out, actually. Left elbow has always been out where it should be - it's the right shoulder I keep going easy on by pushing the elbow forward.

Pullups sucked, but I did them chest up all the way - no hunching at the bar.

2011-2-2
C&J
135x2
155x2
170x1
185 1x10



Front Squats
215x3
235x3
255x1
270x1
280x1 PR +5lbs@180lbs



Military Press
135x3
145x3
155 3x3

Hepburn Rows
235 3x3

C&J went well.  Of course, I've been doing this weight for 2 months or more, but the cleans are getting deeper and the jerks more solid.  My splits still aren't right and I'm not pushing under the bar hard enough, but I am getting my elbows down in the rack position.  If I can improve one thing it's a good session.  These knock down my presses though.  I'll just have to get used to pressing less weight for a while unless I choose to move them in front of squats again.

Low bar squats, paused(3 count) deep
205x3
235x3
265x3
295x2
325x1
355x1 (not deep enough)
335x1 (not deep enough)

MP

Snatches were awful, but I don't know how I'm going to handle more weight in them except by handling more weight.  Squats felt good, no pains in the knees nor any over-tight body parts .  The extra day off helped.
