This is the first time I've done sumo deadlifts... interesting any way...

Seated GM 3x15 42,5 kg

Banded GM 50 reps green rubber band

My snatching turned out fine after a shaky first set, nailed all of them!


Saturdays WO:

EMOM 9 minutes Bench press 3 reps 54 kg

Pull ups BW
1x19 PR
1x11
1x9

BB row snatch grip
4x10 50 kg

A PR in pull ups feels so good even though I didn't make 20 reps.   
Jerks are getting better... not good, but better.

Yesterdays WO:

Snatch from right above knee done as 3 singles with max 10 sec in between:
3x3 62 kg (got some short circuit on the first snatch and dropped it on my thighs... that will make a good Charley horse tomorrow)
3x3 60 kg

"Backwards" snatch:
5x3 50 kg

Clean and jerk off blocks:
3x50 kg
2x3x55 kg
2x60 kg
2x65 kg
2x2x68 kg

Started to hit my hang snatches really good so instead of me getting under the bar fast they got to be at the height of power snatches or muscle snatches.
Unfortunately my catch isn't good enough yet to just raise the weight. It might work to sneak my way up as we call it. if someone have some good advice/exercises to get faster under the bar I would so grateful!

Yesterdays WO:

EMOM 12 min 2 reps Front squat 70 kg

Explosive Sumo deads 8x1 97,5 kg

GM 3x8 60 kg

Superset:
Back ext 3xmax
Hip ext 3xmax

Snatch deadlift 3x20 40 kg (paus at pos 2)

Snatch 2x1 58 kg,2x1 60,5 kg, 2x1 62,5, 2x1 65 kg, 2xfail 66 kg (jeez so tired in both my head and body on the last two sets...)

Rev hyper ext 3x20 BW



Todays WO:

EMOM 9 min, 3 jerks, 55 kg

Strict press
3x5 50 kg (concentrated on holding the lockout for 2 sec/rep)

Superset:
Dips 3x6 35 kg
Bench row 2x10 40 kg 1x10 45 kg

Superset:
Inverted rows 3x10 BW
DB row 2x9 +3 +3 20 kg 1x11 +4 17,5 kg

Clean and jerk
2x40 kg 2x45 kg 2x50 kg 2x40 kg 2x50 kg 1x1 55 kg 1x1 60 kg (Jerks are the limiting factor here)

Pull aparts 200 reps (had to do this in the cable cross since the rubber band was missing)


The initial EMOM Jerks was more or less crap, no timing what so ever....
Later in the workout I got a cue from one of the more experienced lifters on the clean and jerk and lowered to 40 kg. It was more or less to just concentrate on pushing my self under the bar with my arms instead of trying to push the bar as high as possible high with the initial "kick". Nothing revolutionary, but it made a hell of a difference in my approach and performance!

The next time I do clean and jerks I'll load two bars: Cleans on the heavy bar(76-90 kg) and jerks on a lighter (55-70 kg).

Back squat to box (right below parallel) with green rubber bands ramping up:
1x60kg
1x80 kg
1x90 kg
1x100 kg
1x110 kg
2x100 kg (not in the program but I felt naughty today  )

Step ups
3x8 45 kg

SLDL
3x8 70 kg

Norwegian curl
3x8 BW (still eccentric but better than before)

6 sets of 1 clean high pull 1 power clean 85,5 kg

Reversed hypers:
3x20 BW

My technique sucks when it comes to the catch in power cleans. I pull the weight to mid chest so it should not be a problem but I either catch it almost standing upright or I go in to a full squat.... >:(
