Cheers Ben , (btw do you wear a belt for your snatch workouts)?
I am quite overweight 240ish 17 stone 10 5 foot five 165cm . 37 years old. I am targeting the 77kg-85kg division. Hopefully I can keep most of my strength, as it is mostly bellyfat.
I have some flexibility issue Clean & Jerk and Snatch. probably about 80kg and 65-70kg .
I can't really get the hang of the third pull getting under the bar possibly as I have not started squatting properly again . I can 100kg x 10 at the moment. I had accident squatting before and get apprehensive about chucking weight on the bar. Obviously I should be capable of a bit more. My hand strength is also a real issue , as I have smallish hands even with the hook grip.
I could at one point do 180kg x 10 to below parallel and max at 230kg a tiny bit high.
I may try a Westside approach in attempt to get the squat back up quickly.
I worked I can Clean pull 80% of my deadlift to my navel (belly button ) or above. That seems to suggest I have to get a lot stronger to get 210-220kg to that level. So I am going to try a band deadlift approach for a while . I need about 260-270kg deadlift.
Gosh I am sore all over the upperback today. I had about a week off just doing one bench workout and a 220kg deadlift without a belt. Done some walking around the house for 30 mins . I may hit the gym later for some light squats and bands bench press.
