Power Day: 275lbs x 3 Block Jerk @ 158
Got in a solid session yesterday on my power day. I started with jerks from the blocks, then moved onto a pairing of banded kettlebell swings and vertical jumps, and finished up with some light hyperextensions for blood flow. Since my deload ended up getting prolonged beyond what was planned, this was only the second session that I’ve done jerks this training cycle and prior to that session a few weeks ago I hadn’t done them in something like 4 years. I worked up to 235x3 in the first session back and this time I managed an iffy 275x3. I say iffy because the 3rd rep was caught on an unlocked elbow due to fatigue setting in. The strength was there though. As before, my goal with this movement is to hit 150kg (330lbs). My all time best is 145kg (320lbs). We’ll see if I stick with it long enough this time to make it to that goal lol. For now though, I’m just having fun throwing heavy weights overhead.
