1) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Snatch.
2) 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Clean and Jerk.
Snatch – 87.5kg (PR by 2.5kg)
C&J – 112.5kg (2.5kg off PR)
Total – 200kg (PR by 2.5kg)
My snatch is finally catching up to my clean and jerk. This is up 12.5kg since about 2 months ago when Outlaw started doing lots of block work etc for the Olympic lifts. It's working really well for me so far.
If only I could clean and jerk more than 70% of my Front Squat! The clean and jerk wasn't that hard, but I was just getting very tired (and slower by this point). So tired lately!
EMOM for 7 minutes:
2 1 1/4 Front Squats @ 70% DEMO VIDEO
All sets completed with 112.5kg. They were easy.
Refer to 120529
3 rounds for time of:
21 KBS 24/16kg
Modified as I am having a lot of elbow fatigue lately in my left elbow and kipping pullups doesn’t help it. Also, dropping the pullups improves the metcon effect (for me at least)
3 rounds for time
21 x 24kg KB swings
Man I’m crap at running with a stiff lower back. My first split was an easy 1:35 for the 400m with a turn around but the next 2 were much slower. My helen PR is (pathetically) 10:50ish so I’m sure I would’ve beaten it had my elbows felt better.
Not a bad days training. Happy about the snatch - The goal for the year of 90/120 is getting closer every day!
