  High Box Jump 3 x 3

I’m not sure how high the box was, but it was high enough. My intention was to do 6 x 3 but my coach stopped me. Apparently, he’s not aloud to let anybody do any box jumping at Lost Battallion Hall because of the “danger” (as if throwing 1.5 x your body weight overhead is safe). It’s not his fault. I’ll just have to find some other substitution that doesn’t involve a box.

Snatch
40kg x 3
50kg x 2
60kg x 2
65kg x 2
70kg x 2 (PR Double! Roughly bodyweight.)
75kg x 1
80kg x 1
82.5kg x 1 (PR!)
85kg x MISS (Bent arms during first pull.)
85kg x MISS (This was VERY close. I think the only reason I missed it was because I was to tired to move completely underneath it.)

Snatch Pull
85kg x 3
85kg x 3
85kg x 3
85kg x 3
85kg x 3

Overhead Squat
45kg x 8
50kg x 8
This sucked. It doesn’t make any sense to do these for reps. It just kills the wrist and isn’t challenging enough for the legs. Aborted last set.

SL DB RDL
60lbs (x2) x 8/side
60lbs (x2) x 6/side
This also sucked. More challenging on grip than anything. Aborted last set.

Bridge
30kg x 30sec.
35kg x 30sec.
45kg x 30sec.
This is my new favorite accessory exercise. I had done it before, but never with weight. By the time I get up to 100kg, I’ll be a stability beast.
