They are really REALLY hard with the arms positioned like a clean, wrists back, elbows up.  That's the part I am having the hardest time with.

is there any reason why you are doing F squats with such an awkward hold?

Oh, that's the way you hold the bar when you do a clean and jerk.  You gotta get a front squat in that position as part of the lift.  Man, they are HARD.

I have been slacking on my journal!!   Embarrassed

I've been writing down all my workouts, I am just too lazy lately to post them. 

Here are the Cliff Notes from this week  Grin

Tuesday I benched, and I did pretty good.  Got up to 200x1 RAW.  I am thinking about jumping into a bench meet this weekend to see where my max raw bench is.

Thursday I went to Oly training and did clean and jerk mostly.  Got up to 70 kilos, which I failed three times with.  Did standing overhead presses with 110x5 for three sets, which I was pretty psyched about.

Saturday was Oly training again, snatches up to 47 kilos, overhead squats with 32 kilos x5, which were really hard, and front squats 115x3 for a few sets.  I am getting more flexible, but damn, it's hard.

Thanks Smiley

So I did the bench meet yesterday, and it went well but of course could have gone better.

I lifted RAW, didn't really prep for the meet, just decided to do it and took two days off lifting before the meet. 

Opened with 193 and it was a piece of cake.
Second lift - 209 pounds.  This went up soooo easy, I shocked myself.  Video is provided below... this is prolly what I would consider a near-perfect bench press for myself, one of the best lifts I have ever done.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7L-ywFIK2M" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7L-ywFIK2M</a>



So for the third lift, I figured 225.7 would go up real easy.  It didn't... I didn't get the lift.  I think it was purely mental though.  After looking at that 209 lift, there's just no way I don't have the strength to bench 225 raw.  No way.  My head wasn't into it.

I'm slightly pissed at myself for not playing my cards right at the meet.  I should have gone for something in the 215-219 range for the third attempt because I think I would have gotten it... and then i would have been able to go for a fourth lift because that was a record in my weight class. Then I could have gone for the 225.7 on my fourth attempt and who knows... but either way, I would have gotten a heavier lift.  Rookie mistake.  Oh well.  Next time!

Good job Rip!

I find that 10 pound increments are best when moving up on bench, regardless of how easy the previous lift may have been.

209 looked really easy!

Good luck!

Cool

Thanks guys!  I'm pretty psyched about that lift.  It's good to be back in benching form again and to have my strength back.  Now it's time to get serious.   Grin

I'm going to do USPF Nationals June 18, and also the USPF Europa meet in Hartford CT July 23/24.  Two good meets, both easy for me to get to, and not interfering with the racing season.  Should be fun.  I'm gonna go with full gear, so it's almost time to dust off the shirt, suit, and knee wraps. 

The gym where I have been doing olympic training is closing in April, which is a total bummer, but it's going to give me the opportunity to focus on training with the equipment for these PL meets.  I'll be incorporating alot of what I have learned from the olympic training into my workouts, and i am not going to stop the oly training forever.  I'll figure out what to do once the club disperses and I see where everyone ends up and what my options are.

I'll also keep up with this training log a little better!  Embarrassed

Worked on front squats (with a clean grip) -

These are SOOOOO hard with the clean grip, very tough! I was happy to get up to 135 Roll Eyes

Let's see.... Monday I went to the gym and did some pullups and also 40 mins cardio.

Tuesday, March 16
Olympic Training


Warmup - drills, overhead squat barx5, cleans barx5

Cleans
35kilosx3/3 sets

Clean and Jerk
35kilox3
39x3
45x3/3 sets
49x3
53x1
55x1
60x1
62x1
65x1

Standing Overhead Presses
45kilox5/2 sets
50x5/3 sets

I finally taped a couple of the C&Js.  The first video is 62 kilos, and the second video is 65 kilos.  65 kilos is just about body weight, which i think is decent for a beginner.  I still need to squat under the bar more.  That little head nod at the end of each lift is because I am usually about 50/50 as to whether I'm gonna make my lift or fall on my ass.   Grin

The Olympic training facility will be no longer by the end of next week Sad
But the end of next week is 12 weeks out from USPF Nationals, so that's gonna be good timing for me.


62 kilos:

 Your training routine is hardcore and puts most guys to shame. You're a dinosaur at heart; good job and good luck.

I've been slack on the training log  Embarrassed

I've been training though... got into the bench shirt last Friday night and it wasn't terrible for the first time in it this year.  We'll see...

Squatted raw on SUnday, pretty moderate/heavy, got up to 185x6 by myself, ATG.  I was SOOOOOOO sore...today is the first day I'm walking without a limp.

Did speed work last night, not squats though because I was still too sore.

Gonna get into the bench shirt today or tomorrow, and then maybe the squat suit on Sunday.  Havent decided whether I am going to wait one more week on the suit or not.

133x6
177x6
199x6
221x6
241x4

UGH I just could not hold on to those last sets. 

RACK DEADS

255x3/2 sets
These weren't heavy but I really struggled with the grip.   Angry

DEADLIFT (50%)
155x8/5 sets, 2 mins rest
I finally found a pair of straps to use for these so I could at least do them.

Hyperextensions 10x3
