I lifted this morning like the weights were owed to me. I took bigger jumps and didn’t even pull up the knee wraps until my maximal attempts. That’s what I need more of: less hesitation, more confidence, more swag.
Snatch: took it up to a pretty dece’ 135.
Clean and jerks: Jumped from 100 to 130. 130 to 150. Pulled up my knee wraps and put on a belt and hit a nice 160. Then I started thinking again. Loaded 167 but knew I wouldn’t get it before I even pulled it off the floor.
If you look back about a month ago, morning practices did NOT look like this. I would have to work my ass off to barely get a 150 clean and a 295 total was a rare occurrence.
Had less rest between sessions today. Irregardless, I still had a pretty solid session.
Snatch: took it up to 130. Missed 140. Worked back up from 100 and did a set of 4 at 130. Observe.
Clean and jerks: I had limited time and was a little smoked after my snatches but worked up to 160 again. Cleaned it but missed the jerk.
Congrats to my 2 lifters who, between the 2 of them, walked away with more PRs in one day than I’ve seen in the last 2 years.
Speaking of swag, peep this track. It will make you feel sexy, I guarantee it.
