Jim Gets It.

January 24, 2011

If you’ve ever had the pleasure of talking to Jim Schmitz on his thoughts about weightlifting or have ever listened to him tell stories of weightlifting in it’s golden age, you realize that Coach Schmitz has it all figured out.  My adivice: Go to/lift in a PWA meet.  Talk to Jim.  Shake his hand and go meditate on whatever you two talk about.  Here’s a link to an article he wrote for Ironmind about “heavy Saturdays” (one of my favorite parts about lifting weights).

Also, check out this guy.

I don’t know what’s more impressive, the extension on his pull, or his mustache.

AM

Front Squat: 5×5 at 152.2kg/335lbs.

Clean and jerk: took a single at 140kg.

PM

-Snatch: worked up to 125kg. for a single

-Clean and Jerk: worked up to 143kg. for a single.  Took an attempt at 166kg. and missed.

In other news, I sat down for the better part of 6 hours attempting to do some sketching yesterday.  I guess it’s not something that can be forced.  But, I’m hopeful that I’ll come back to it soon.
