Saturday 26/11/11: London & South East Championships, Crystal Palace

Weighed in at 81.55kg (somehow!). 2kg lighter than the last comp without even trying. At this rate I'll be lifting as a 77.

Felt well rested after the taper, bar work felt sharp, warm ups felt light. Looking good...

Snatch
Warmups went something like
40/2 high hang
40/1x2
50/1
60/1
65/1
70/1
75/FF: first behind, second forwards
60/1 to stay warm
70/1

Plan was originally to open on 77, but dropped it to 75 to make sure I got a lift in and reduce the potential for possible crazy glory lifts later on.

75x Behind
75x Forwards, didn't sit in
75 Powered the shit out of it. It was either that or risk bombing out, and with a qualifying total on the table that wasn't going to happen.

10 mins rest then started warming up for the C&J

C&J
60/1x2
70/1x2
80/1
90/1

Had 95 down as my opener, went out to the front, but Koing noticed a ton of lifters were all going to take 95 or 96. So he suggested I just go back to the warmup room, nail 95 and open on 97, leaving me 2 attempts to go for the 105 needed to hit a 180 total. Easy lift in the back, out front to open on 97.

97x Didn't pull it in off the floor, smashed it off my thighs, swung back in and whacked me in the throat, didn't get under or even attempt to rack it. In other words: diabolical. Things not looking good...
97 Comfy clean, smashed the jerk

And so the stage was set: 1 lift left, 8kg short of the qualifying total. Koing asks me if I want to go for the 105, which would be 4kg over my best training lift and 7kg over my best comp lift, or just go for something more doable to at least get a PB total. And so I asked myself the question that all weightlifters ask themselves at such times: What would Zlatan Vanev do?

Vanev would, of course, stick whatever was needed on the bar and smash the shit out of it.

105 BOOOOOOOOOOOM! Where on earth did that come from??? Caught the clean a bit forwards but managed to save it, jerk felt a bit unstable but not heavy, 2 whites 1 red. Glory lifting FTW.

75/105/180
7kg comp PB C&J
7kg comp PB total
4kg over my best training C&J
Qualifying total for next year's British Masters

Next is the Southern Masters in February, then the British in March.

Your lifting made my day, the drama and a truly heroic last lift.

Awesome.

Great vid, congrats!

Something else:
I noticed that you are wearing strength shop lions. What do you think of them?
I myself bought the new Lokis but I´m not quite happy with them. (for lifting purposes they work fine but they look clumsy and are falling apart. The shoe laces ripped right through the material on third use)
Current PBs:
195 kg SQ, 130 kg Bench, 245 kg DL, 200 kg SQ w/ wraps

Long Term Goals:
@ 75 kg: SQ - 252,5 kg, SQ w/ Wraps - 267,5 kg, DL - 307,5 kg, Total (w/ and w/o Wraps) - 710
@ 82,5 kg: SQ - 275 kg, SQ w/ Wraps - 277,5 kg, Total (w/ and w/o Wraps) - 772,5 kg

I only use them for snatching (because of the higher heel) and squats. I wear Adidas Ironwork IIs (AKA the toughest weightlifting shoe ever) for C&J, partly because they're tighter so my front foot doesn't move, and also because they're hard as nails. I think my lions would be wrecked in a month or so if I jerked in them as I'm very hard on my shoes. I'll keep resoling my Ironworks until they fall apart. So far the heel's been resoled once, and then the resole has been repaired with Shoo Goo several times.

If I was in the market for new shoes I'd either stump up the cash for some Romaleos, or wait until the AdiPower comes out in January.

Hey, thanks for the answer.
That AdiPower shoe sounds like a pretty cool birthday present wish :P
