@JT - Me either. That was my father's ongoing joke. He was a welder and worked outside his whole life. He'd look at the thermometer on the fence, see the sub-freezing temps, shake his head and say, "damn global warming."

WU: Row 1km; shoulder pre-hab; walking lunges x20 ydsx2
Deadlifts 45 x5/ 65, 75, 85, 95 x10
Goblet squats 35, 45 x10
KB swings 35 x15x3

Was going to do another set of goblet squats at 52 but my back said "stop." Glad I listened. ;)

The thing is, I'm in favor of global warming b/c I live in Cleveland!

Snatch Practice at RCW with Coach Dan Bell

1.5 hours of drills, focused on punching out the arms when the weight flies overhead and, getting the bar from the top of the knee caps to the power position and then using the legs/butt to make the bar fly overhead, so then you can punch it.

Practice weight of 45kg now feels like practice weight of 40kg used to.
That's a good thing.

I feel like I'm a better lifter after today's practice session than when I started, and I feel like I have two of the drills dialed in to where hundreds of reps on each per week will make me an even better lifter. Only 49.8 weeks until the window opens for qualifying for 2016 Worlds....

Rest Day

Walked 1.3 miles on treadmill increasing the incline every .1

Held a goblet squat for a while

Did 50 knee rebends with an empty bar.

Today's walk is the best my back has felt since I injured it on July 8, 2014.
Neither leg tingled or fell asleep during the walk.
This is very encouraging.

@Claw, nice fitness model photos on FB!

Wednesday November 19, 2014

Rowed 1k
some mobility work

Snatch Practice (the new way, not splitting)
10x45# power position drills
10x45# knee rebending drills
10x75# muscle snatch with a 1/4 OHS
10x105# ms with 1/4 OHS
5x135# ms with 1/4 OHS
1x155 (missed, got it to where it needed to be but didn't get under it)

I've been "forced" into the muscle snatch b/c Dan Bell has corrected my bar path and power position so much that the bar is travelling too fast and too close to my body to split snatch at the lighter weights. At the heavier weights the bar is moving slow enough I might have to split at that weight. Will stick with the experiment for another couple months b/c there's still 49 weeks and 4 days until the first qualifier for the 2016 worlds.

Presses and Push Presses

Did some coaching on the snatch for one of the trainers.
