300lbs clean is one of the most crackpipe races we got going
JPs words of scorn ran through Spug's mind for most of the evening. Until the were pushed out by the immortal words of the Hatebreed:
IF THERE'S ONE THING IN THIS WORLD
THAT I MUST DO
IT WILL BEPROVE YOU WRONG
The plan was set. Wednesday - Clean and Jerk. Plus maybe a cheeky punt at the "Bodyweight for Reps" and the "75% of Bodyweight for Reps" challenges. Weight on arrival at the gym was about 103kg. Bulk is going well.Clean and Jerk
Warmup by snatching and clean and jerking with the bar, 40kg, 70kg.
90kg x 1 clean + 3 jerks - nice deep squat clean.
100kg x 1 clea + 3 jerks - I HAVE MASTERED IT!
105kg x 1 clean + 3 jerks - clean was a bit dodgier. Too far forward, didn't rack it right.
110kg x 1 clean + 1 jerk - the revenge of the power clean. Sigh.
Felt heavy. Arms were a bit sore. Disappointed that the clean tech that I believed might be there wasn't. JP was PROVEN RIGHT.
Figured yesterday's session took more out of me than I realised so will just cut this one short, no challenge attempts.
115kg x 1 clean + 1 jerk
120kg x 1 clean + 1 jerk - crappy clean, jerk was easy but felt very heavy in the rack position. So different from taking the bar from blocks.
One improvement today was on the jerks, I tried to land with some give in the legs. Felt good, I think this might be a key to getting heavier weights overhead. Maybe next week I'll jerk from the rack again.
Front of the thighs is sore above the knees again after the squatting. Not sure what this means for Friday, might try wrapping them loosely. Or maybe just leave the max out till next week. JP aint nailing 500lbs this week anyway.
