Re: A Bears Tale

Im following CompTrain masters still, main thing is you get a leaderboard every day.

You want me to add you to my private group on facebook as I post the workouts on there in the morning?

Re: A Bears Tale

May 2 2018

Holleyman

30 rounds for time:
5 Wall balls
3 HSPU
1 Power Clean 102k - 21.09 PB

Doing 111k power cleans in the MQ made this much easier. 2.20 PB. Pity the MQ was made for olympic lifters that skip this year.

Re: A Bears Tale

Right now getting stronger and trying to solve my huge issue with the snatch. Anything over 135lb just turns pure ugly as I have a problem finishing my pull from anything lower than the high hang.

I'm still going for it next year for the games in my last year of 45-49. Two years is too long to wait around with my goals, it's a lot harder to get there now than it is to compete there seeing as we have a lot of people qualifying undeservedly.

This year I have the qualifiers for a German competition and the Cyprus Throwdown which is on a beach. Great for location but sadly I think they may use the sea.

Re: A Bears Tale

The snatch... I had that ugly form.. still masters oly but gets better each month. Mobility, accessory work, only accepting good reps. If it gets ugly I drop weight and go back up. My accuracy is up thus making my efficiency up as well.

Yes 2 years is a while to try and stay idle. The top 20 is stacked with great athletes as well as some rather questionable ones.

Re: A Bears Tale

Have either of you used the ’Iron Path Pro’ app?

I use it in my iPad and it really helps to see what is going on.

I might only have a PR of 76kgs but my technique is good and solid. The app makes it easy to see what is going on.

Re: A Bears Tale

I actually have to put two thick knee wraps down my shorts to even attempt to finish my pull, my arms are long and I can't go too wide without niggling my shoulder, the snatch is a total nightmare for me. Unless its 135lb or less then I can muscle them

I had problems getting the bar to make contact (scoop) with my hips forcing me to muscle snatch the bar. I found out my hips and accessory muscles were weak. I also widened my grip about 1" total. My bar placement is a bit far from my shins. Clean and Snatch.

Has changed my oly and made it more efficient and I am better now. Accuracy has increased.
