Rough Saturday night, beers, watch rugby, beers, watch football, beers, dancing, last train home.
Sunday missed climbing layed on the couch eating hummus and chips.
Deep tissue massage to sort out my back. Main knots where actually all in my opposite (left) upper back. After the massage it was felt like I got an extra couple inches range of movement.
Monday Session 1, Week 1
Start of new program, 140kg frontie nailed, log title updated appropriately.
So new program, is based on what my coach uses for his junior lifters. He gave me all the rules and formulas and I mashed it into a spreadsheet.
Initial numbers where too much for me, worked out to over 40 lifts above 80% per a session. Which is just not managed for me, so I want back over the formulas and added in a percentage to the number of reps. Then scaled back the program to average of 30 reps over 80% which I think I can achieve. Ended up with 60% of what the juniors do. The magic is all in the ratio of squats, to snatch to C&J apparently.
So 4 week cycle of this program, then deload week, nail some PB's and see what happens from there. Would be ideal to run the program again at 70 or 75% and keep edging it up until I can keep up with the teenagers who manage 100%.
Clean and Jerk: 3x3 20kg, 2x40kg, 1x50kg, 1x60kg, 1x70kg, 1x80kg, 84kg 2,2,2,2,1, 89kg 2,2,2 // failed one at 84k lost it behind, lock outs not great.
Snatch Pulls 4x6 with 40/50kg // just working technique.
3 hours in the gym! way too much trash talking.
