Bw 89.3kg : been dieting down for 3 weeks, dropped off about 1.5-1.7kg or so. Down 3kg from 3 weeks ago where I weighed in at 92.4kg
I had a 2hr drive to the venue but managed to sleep in the car at the venue after weigh in. I was feeling lethargic, then watched the Donny Shankle interview and had a red bull and my total mood changed. I felt on edge, ready to f0cking explode and just all around very aggressive. If you don’t know me I tend to get very aggressive the few hrs leading up to a comp. It’s good for me, but maybe not others.
I picked up the bar and it felt VERY LIGHT. On comp day the bar just feels ridiculously light. I know I’m at least in good shape/ on it.
Snatch warm ups
bar work, felt ultra fast and sharp
40 x 2 ; supers harp
50 x 1 ; sharp
60 x 1 ; sharp
70 x 1 ; sharp
80 x 1 ; sharp
90 x 1 ; sharp
100 x 1 ; sharp
105 x 1 ; sharp
110 x 1 ; sharp
116 x 1 ; solid, mate was s uppose to load 115 but got 116 on instead, I didn’t notice it any heavier
122 O stuck it +2kg PB, it’s weird I’m tending to have to take a few steps forwards to recovery my Snatch’s of late?! Hips coming up too fast out of the receive position
124 x a bit too much swing at the top, but the bar height is here
124 x had to follow myself, tried to keep it closer, but didn’t pull it enough
C&J warm up
60 x 2
80 x 1
100 x 1
120 x 1 : cleans felt rough
130 x 1 : cleans felt rough
140 x O , failed jerk,
147 O +2kg PB: clean looked better then it felt, Jerk looked good, rushed forwards to recovery it (standard), got to warms up length, front foot went out well, got under it, steadied it over head, stuck that mofo!
151 x Felt really heavy off the floor, heavy on the receive, heavy on the squat up, which was quite frankly one of my worst recoveries ever, look at the lack of leg strength?! wtf?! Jerk didn’t go to arms length, but at least myf ront foot was out forwards…for me better behind then in front
151 x followed myself, heavy off the floor, heavy on the squat up, not enough juice left for the Jerk, Clean just drained me…
269 +4kg on to my PB, qualified for English and British in 2011
I’m happy with 122/147 but 124 is close and 150 isn’t out of the question if I don’t expend too much energy on the Cleans. Maybe it was the weight drop that affected my Cleans? I did kind of tweak my back on Monday and the front squats have felt gingerly…the Cleans 3 weeks ago felt IMMENSE and very easy.
