Ok, for those who read my my other post in regard to my hypertophy cycle that is centered around OL, I just wanted to say thank for all the input. I’m probably going to move the workouts that you suggested to a word doc. I wanted to give you my thoughts on my first workout. I want to just coast thru this week and get a feel for things. I guess that I under estimated how hard this program would be. It was hard. here’s how it went my weights:
Front Squat(cleand weight to shoulders): 1355 1855 2055 2055 205*5;
(my best FS is at least 330 (can’t remember exactly), but these weights still gave me a workout
Snatch : 655 755 855 855 85*5
I can snatch 209 without much problem, but 85lb gave me that I wanna puke feeling. Maybe it was the squats earlier.
Power Jerk : 655 855 955 955 95*5
Felt good and light, what I was striving for this week
Hang Clean : Same a Power Jerk
Overhead Press(cleaned to shoulders) :
655 755 855 855 85*5
Again easy like I had planned
So it looks like I just went heavier than anticipated, but all in all everything felt pretty good. I was lifting on the crappiest bar that I’ve ever lifter on in my life and still managed a decent, albeit light, workout.
I don’t plan on boring you guys with an update of every workout, because honestly that would be lame. I may give one update at the end of the week if I discover a major overhaul needs to be made. Otherwise, you’ll hear from me in about 4 weeks. Wish me luck.
