Complex-Snatch+snatch balance: 5x1 45 kg
Snatch: 1x3 45 kg 1x3 50 kg, 3x2 60 kg, 5x1 65 kg
Kloklov complex 1x2: 30 kg, 40 kg, 45 kg

Front squat: 5x5 90 kg

OHP 5x5 52,5 kg

Chins ramping up 1x5: 25 kg, 27,5 kg, 30 kg, 32,5 kg 1x4 +1 35 kg

BB row ramping up 1x5: 55 kg, 57,5 kg, 60 kg, 65 kg, 70 kg

DB speed bench 3x5 27,5 kg

70° Cable laterals: 3x10 10 kg

Lying tri ext: 5x5 40 kg

DB curl 3x8 15 kg

Had a hard time concentrating today felt worn. But on the up side I got under the bar quite nicely doing snatches!
Failed the last set doing chins but I think it still might be a rep PR on that weight. The up side here is that the 3 first reps are really easy regardless of weight. ;)

HBR 3x5 17,5 kg, 2x5 15 kg DB:s

70° cable laterals 3x10 10 kg

Snatch grip BNP ramping up 1x5: 26kg, 28,5 kg, 30 kg, 32,5 kg, 35 kg

I need to go at least this heavy on the snatch to maintain the proper drive. Bench press felt a bit heavy but using the grip I have now transfers better to the DBBP than the wider grip where I have a better groove.
Otherwise I felt stronger than I did monday! :)

Deload 3x3!
« Reply #27 on: November 17, 2014, 11:11:06 AM »
OHP: 3x3 55 kg

Pull ups to chest: 3x3 BW +4 kg

HBR: 3x3 17,5 kg

DB Speed Bench 3x5 25 kg

BB curl: 3x3 42,5 kg

DB FP: 3x5 25 kg

DB swing: 3x6 9 kg


No OL-lifting and no squats today... boring but probably necessary. The knee is pain free so I'll may do some light OL on wednesday.  :DDecreased the volume on my back training so I'll just do chins and rows once a week. My back has a tendency to cramp now which seems weird since I cut the OL workout on saturday as well.

Deload and a little OL-lifting!
« Reply #28 on: November 19, 2014, 10:45:06 AM »
Snatch: 1x3 40 kg 2x3 50 kg 3x3 55 kg (Had to hold my self back since I really love this.)

Snatch pulls 4x2 90 kg, 1x2 85 kg, 1x2 90 kg (took me a while to get the groove back)

Leg ext 1x8 35 kg

leg curl 3x5 37,5 kg

Bench press 3x3 94 kg

BB row ramping up 1x3: 60 kg, 67,5 kg, 74 kg

Lying tri ext: 3x3 42,5 kg

HBC 3x6 10 kg

70° cable laterals 3x6 7,5 kg

Calf raise 3x8 90 kg

Got a little bit cautious when going under the bar during the snatches(because of the knee) but I got over it. Need to start placing the bar further back during the warm up with power snatches.
Otherwise deloads are boring feels like you haven't even worked out a little bit. :(

OL-lifting: Plannes and goals!
« Reply #29 on: November 20, 2014, 03:35:59 PM »
I've talked to to an OL-coach about doing a program for me and get feedback on a regular basis. My long term goal is to be able to lift 230 kg @ 77 kg BW when you put the two lifts together. That's
the qualification weight to be able to compete in the Swedish championships. :)
