EMOM 9 min, 3 Bench press 45 kg + rubberbands

Superset:
Incline push ups 3x20
Pull ups BW 1x14 1x12 1x10 (kept these super strict)

Superset:
DB row 3x10 20 kg
Bench rows 1x10 50 kg 2x10 45 kg

Face pulls 200 reps 7,5 kg (had to do this in the cable cross since the rubber band was missing)

Clean:
2x1 80 kg, 2x1 85 kg, 2x1 90 kg, 1x1 96 kg PR, 2xfail 97,5 kg, 1x1 97,5 kg PR again![/b]

Jerks
1x2 55 kg, 1x2 60 kg, 1x2 62,5 kg, 2x2 65 kg

I feel good just like I knew that I would now! *James Brown song*
Ok my jerks still suck but are slowly getting better. Cleans.... jeez this was fun! I apparently got a good "sit" and I am pretty fast under. The pull on the last set was really good almost at power clean height, so I got more to give.

Back squat ramping up to 1RM:
2x100 kg
1x120 kg
1x125 kg
1x130,5 kg A very modest PR, but squatted more upright than ever almost no lean forward if any at all.

Lateral step ups:
3x10 30 kg

Hip bridges:
10x60 kg
10x70 kg
10x80 kg

100 rep banded GM:s

Talked to my coach afterwards and the squatting result turned out just like wanted = an improvement of my form.
Ol-technique tomorrow (heavy snatching 90%). Maxing out on the bench press wednesday. Saturday I'll go for new maxes in Clean, snatch, jerk. I separated the clean and jerk in to two lifts since the discrepancy between them is still to big .

Technique day!

Hang snatches max 10 sec between each rep:
6x1,1,1 65 kg (felt really secure even though i missed 4 reps, two of them was unnecessary caused by sloppiness from me)

Reversed snatch:
5x3 55 kg

Superset:
Clean off blocks
3x60 kg, 65 kg 70 kg, 70 kg
2x75 kg, 80 kg, 1x1 85 +1x1 70 kg, 2x70 kg (got too tired in my head at 85 kg so my cleans stopped working)
Jerks:
3x45 kg, 50 kg, 55 kg 57,5 kg
2x60 kg, 65 kg, 70 kg, 70 kg


Better lockouts than ever hit my old jerk PR but with no bend or rebound in my arms. :)
This was a tough WO since I was really close to 90% on all lifts.

Max attempt day!
« Reply #35 on: March 07, 2015, 01:22:13 PM »
Snatch:
1x1 65 kg
1x1 70 kg
4xfail 75 kg Third attempt was closer than ever but my left arm didn't lockout properly(just a little short of lockout) and I dropped it.

Clean:
1x1 90 kg
1x1 95 kg
1x1 100 kg PR!

Jerk:
1x1 70 kg
1x1 75 kg
1x1 80 kg PR!

Was really stiff and not "sharp" during the warm up and that feeling of not being sharp continued into the snatching, so it wasn't an ideal snatch day. Still very disappointed about it. I Pull 75 kg high enough so my problem is the last pull under.
Was a bit tired in my head on the cleans but made an easy 100 kg and decided to stop there even though I probably could have made 105 kg, I'll save that til later. My coach says that if I get faster under the bar I would probably clean about 110-115 kg.

Sumo deads ramping up to 1 RM:
1x131 kg
1x133,5 kg
1x135 kg PR (they all were PR:s but the last one is what counts)

Superset:
Walking Lunges
3x10 10 kg (my knees didn't like this so I started off easy)
Back ext
3x8 20 kg
Hip ext
3x8 20 kg

6 sets of 2 clean high pulls +1 power clean 80 kg (I finally got my power cleans to work)

AMRAP 15 min:
20 Death marches 10 kg DB:s
20 Plank knees to elbows
12 slow reversed crunches

Went easy on the AMRAP. Managed 8 rounds +one more death march.

Sometimes when I do a new exercise especially single leg stuff my knees protest but when this shows up again they have adapted to it.
I discovered that I do panda pulls when doing clean high pulls. That is something I'll try to do with the snatch high pulls to.

6 set of 2 snatch balance +1 hang snatch
3x55 kg
3x50 kg

Hang snatch 6x3 56 kg (an old lifter told me to move my grip inwards with 3 cm/side. Made all the difference OH, suddenly my lockouts worked!)

Snatch pulls from blocks bar at hip: 5x3 60 kg

Hang cleans mid thigh 5x2 75 kg

Read my program wrong in sooo many ways... 7,5 kg to much weight on the first exercise the 3 first sets. 6 sets of hang snatches that should never been in this workout. So I abbreviated the Hang clean portion of the WO (it should have been 6x3 75 kg). Well something positive came out of this my grip in the snatch and that I was really tired when I got to the hang cleans so I just had to go under fast!
