  1. Saturday, 6-7-14 Went to get supplements today and included Beta-Alanine. Holy tingling, Batman!! Snatch 40 x 3 50 x 2, 2 60 x 2 65 x 2 70 x 2 75 x 2/3 - went 1, F, 1 and last one was a couple steps forward - only 5kg off best double, though 70 x 2/3 - went F, 1, 1 - mostly a mental miss, so no worries Clean & Jerk 60 x 2 70 x 2 80 x 2+1 90 x 2+1 95 x 2+1 - second clean was a bit ugly and tough, but got the jerk 100 x 1 - I'll get this soon for 2+1 Back Squat 80 x 3 110 x 2 125 x 2 - belt 135 x 3 - good set, better than last week!! Block Snatch Pull 110 x 5 - felt heavy, but nee
  2. Wednesday, 6-5-14 Power Snatch 40 x 2, 2 50 x 2 55 x 2 60 x 2 65 x 2 - solid double - feeling better than Monday Power Clean 50 x 3 60 x 2 70 x 2 80 x 2 85 x 1 90 x 1 Front Squat 70 x 3 90 x 2 102.5 x 1 112.5 x 2, 2 - felt heavy, but got them
  3. Nice work!! 70kg for 5x5 is strong!!
  4. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Started a new program to allow this old body to recover more between workouts. Tuesday, 6-3-14 My legs and hips were somewhat wrecked due to a high rep back-off set on Sunday, not quite recovered for today. Snatch 40 x 3 50 x 2, 2 60 x 2 67.5 x F, 2 - after the miss, took a rest, then made my double - tired legs and hips resulted in hips rising too fast on the pull 72.5 x 1/3 - went F, 1, F - same as above 65 x F, 3 - same as above, reset after the miss, then got the triple, although last rep was forward Clean & Jerk 50 x 2 70 x 2 80 x 2+1 90 x 1
  5. My wrists were sore for about 3 weeks after starting Olympic lifting, then got much better as I adapted to it. I was also stretching multiple times a day. As was said, make sure you're racking the bar on your delts and not catching cleans in your hands with elbows pointed down. The elbows should be pointed directly in front of you as much as you can get them up there!! Also, lat stretches and triceps will help overcome soreness. To distinguish, there should be no sharp pain in the wrists, just a general achiness. If you have sharp pain, probably an injury.
  6. I can't see the video and don't really feel like signing up for another account. I would say to upload to youtube or coaches eye. Sorry I couldn't be more help, but at least some people could see it and critique.
  7. As has been said, more efficient if your snatch max is not that high. It's not going to be as tiring. Also, as said, the really elites did snatch the bar overhead, then do their OHS. But, their max snatch is closer to 295-300lbs, so hitting a 205lb snatch is no biggie, even tired.
  8. I-Jo's advice is the best I've seen!! (sorry, can't copy)
  9. Saturday, 5-17-14 - Strength day Push Press BTN bar x 8 40 x 4 50 x 3 60 x 6 - start of a Russian volume program 70 x 4 75 x 3 80 x 2 85 x 1 75 x 3, 3 Back Squat bar x 8 60 x 5 80 x 3 100 x 3 110 x 2 120 x 1 127.5 x 5 - felt a touch heavy, but got through it, last couple of reps were a bit rough Snatch Pull 70 x 3 100 x 5 105 x 5 - heavy, working on keeping hips down
  10. Friday, 5-16-14 Snatch 40 x 3 50 x 2, 2 60 x 2 65 x 1 70 x 1 75 x F, 1 77.5 x F, 1 - not sure why I'm missing, just a little tired I guess 70 x F, 1 - got lazy on the first one Clean & Jerk 50 x 2, 2 70 x 1, 1 80 x 1 90 x 1 100 x 1 105 x F-jk - cleaned it fine, just couldn't get it behind my head
  11. I agree with Jaymul. The first thing that jumped out at me is your contact point being on the mid-thigh. I also think you could start with your hips a touch lower. Everything else is tough to judge with the angle and plates. Try to get a front side angle if you can. That's usually best to critique from.
  12. Wednesday, 5-14-14 Block Snatch 40 x 3 50 x 2, 2 57.5 x 1 62.5 x 1 x 8 OTM - good reps today, no misses, no forward lifts Block Clean 50 x 3 70 x 2 80 x 1, 85 x 1 x 5 all OTM including the 80kg single - good reps, getting better at finishing my pull Front Squat 95 x 2 105 x 3, 3, 3 - good reps, but felt a bit heavy Not bad today considering I drove down to Tucson yesterday and back today, about 2 hrs each way.
  13. Monday, 5-12-14 Snatch 40 x 3, 3 50 x 2, 2 60 x 2 70 x F, 1 x 10/12 OTM - missed reps 3 and 11, mind not in it, never really got into a groove for some reason, they were a little forced, but not too heavy Clean & Jerk 50 x 2 70 x 2 82.5 x 1 92.5 x 1 x 6 OT2M - these went well, however Back Squat 70 x 5 90 x 3 110 x 2 117.5 x 5, 5, 5 - the 110 double felt good, but these working sets felt heavy and tough Push-up: BW x 10, BW+10kg x 8 Sit-up: BW x 10, BW+5kg x 8 - supersetted with the push-ups - will be increasing sets over the weeks
  14. As an Olympic lifter, I agree with almost everything in this thread. However, I would seriously caution against using a thumb-less grip on the Push Press. Although it may provide for a lower level of mobility, it would also provide less stability, IMHO. I think you're way better off just getting the mobility/flexibility in the wrists to perform the push press accurately. It only really takes a couple of weeks and will help in so many ways. Plus, you don't really want to be thumbless gripping during cleans, and removing the thumb from your grip in the rack position might be tough!!
  15. Saturday, 5-10-14 Last day of deload week. Push Press BTN bar x 10 50 x 3, 3 70 x 3 80 x 3 Back Squat 60 x 5 80 x 3 100 x 2 120 x 1 130 x 3 - not bad, but felt a touch heavy Ready to get back to some volume next week. I'll mostly just move to linear progression on squats, presses and DL's, and monitor the weight on the comp lifts.
