  1. Is anyone planning to participate in the Tactical Strength Challenge? Its a world wide competition that you go to a gym around you and submit your numbers. The events are: Deadlift; 3 attempts at a one rep max Pull ups; 1 attempt at max reps, strict KB Snatch; 5 min max reps each arm I'm planning to go to Victory Fitness in Greenwood, IN to compete.
  2. Welcome to the Nerd Fitness Snatch Leaderboard. Below you will find the top Snatch lifts (that been reported) on the Nerd Fitness Forum organized by Sinclair Total. For more information about the Sinclair Coefficient, go here. Please note Sinclair is not meant to be mix genders so there is a male and female Leaderboard. Also, I know Sinclair is supposed to be for an Olympic Total, but we figured there would no harm in using it individually. The following are the rules for using the Nerd Fitness Leaderboards. You must have at least 50 posts - We don't want random people just showing up and posting just to be on the Leaderboards. If you don't have 50 posts yet, be an active member and come back when you do. You must have been active in the last 6 months - This is meant to be for active members. If you are not active for 6 months, you will be removed. If you once again become active, you are more than welcome to post your new PRs and join back up! Your lifts must be current - No posting 'This was my lift 2 years ago'. All lifts must have been completed since joining NF. You must update your lift at least once every 2 years to stay on the Leaderboards. - Similar to the previous point, we want the Leaderboards to be current. Therefore, entries that are older then 2 years old will be pruned. Weights should be reported in KG, not pounds. - This is the weight system Olympic lifting competitions use. If pounds are your mass measurement of choice, just multiply your total by 0.454 to find the equivalent mass in kilograms. Yes, I know pounds are a unit of force, but you know we use it like mass when it comes to body weight. If you'd like to be put on the Leaderboards, please reply this this thread with the following information: Gender Bodyweight Weight Lifted in a 1 Rep Max (or 1RM) Also, if you enter any of the NF Virtual Lifting Competitions, entries for those will be migrated to the Leaderboards (only if it improves your Sinclair Total). I will try to update the Leaderboard after each challenge and/or virtual lifting competition. If things haven't updated in awhile, harass me via PM (profile can be found here). Note: leaderboard only shows in your web browser and not on tapatalk
  3. Going back to Snatching a few times a week this year. I might do it from the hang for a while to get my technique down. Any tips?
  4. Goals: 1) Play with snatch I'm gonna pick up a pair of 10 lb bumpers so I can play with my snatch in the garage without destroying the floor. Oh. And there's that thing about a bodyweight bench so I'll still be working on that I guess. So goal 2 I guess. And next week I'm switching back to being a daywalker... I transferred shifts at work so I'm abruptly switching my schedule and gonna try to survive the switch from getting up at 2 pm to getting up at... like, 4-5 am. Ick. And the tomatoes are coming. And I've got a shit ton of beans already. Chilli time?... no wrong kind of beans. So. 1) Snatch 2) Bench 3) Daywalking 4) Take care of garden stuff
  5. Hi All! I recently got the bug to compete and decided to sign up for my first USAW weightlifting meet. It's scheduled on November 8, so I have a few months to prepare for it. Anyone have experience with oly meets? Any advice for a noob to the meet scene? Thanks! Nicc
  6. Main goal: be a professional competitive kettlebeller! It's been a while since my last challenge! In the meantime I've finished my internship (which kept me away from here) and I also competed at the amateur level at the world championships of kettlebellsport. It was awesome. And I want more! And I want to do better. So here I am, with a very simple challenge setup! Progress video with 24kg, only need to do 50 extra reps per hand for a spot on the podium! Simple because I just need to get back into training a lot. It doesn't really matter yet what I do, as long as I'm doing stuff! So my first goal is related to just doing something; Goal 1: Dance dance! If I don't feel like training at all, I just have to put on the clothes, put on some music and then dance. If after 5 minutes of dancing I still don't feel like training I get to go home. Goal 2: Log the progress It's important to log so I can have proper progression, it's important to take some videos to check technique progress... and doing so here is extra fun! Bonus Goal: Fix all the things All the things that cause me stress. Stress is bad for training recovery. And the list of things is long. But I'm not writing down any specific goals because that'll put on pressure and add to the stress Complicated yes? The goal is only here so I can brag about it if I do something useful.
  7. I have procasted nerdfitness for quite some time now so now its time to take revenge. started late so this will be a 4week challenge only Fitness goals: #1 - KB Training at least 3 times pr week (have a kb certification examn at the end of september (2*12 jerk @32kg and 100 snatches @24kg so need to get moving #2 30/30 squat challenge & 7/30 hang challenge every day for the rest of the challenge (have 2 ido portal workshops in september so need to be prepared #3 Practice yoga at least 5 times pr week Lifestyle goal: #1 Post update at nerd fitness every day for the rest of the challenge sorry for the delay
  8. Preemptive TL;DR: Where/how do I program snatches into 5/3/1?Do I add it to the regular 4 lifts or replace one of the lifts with it?Are snatch grip deads, snatch high pulls AND snatches redundantWhat generally effects OHP more: push press or incline press?What has been your experience with floor presses? Ok so when I'm excited about being in the gym, I tend to look forward at future programming. I'm currently on my 2nd cycle of 5/3/1 with my current workouts looking like this: Workout A Press 5/3/1 Pull/Chin Ups between Press sets - pulls to balance the pressing and bicep/back work CGBP (3 sets) - work the triceps, help bench lockout (if I remember correctly) Core work (curls & tricep work if I have the time) - cause...core Workout B Deadlift 5/3/1 Reverse Hypers between DL sets (perfect world) - For the lower back and hamstrings Front Squat (3 sets) - helping with quad strength and keeping a solid upper back Core work Workout C Bench 5/3/1 Pull/Chin Ups between Bench Incline Bench (3 sets) - shoulder work with heavier weight Kroc rows - stronger upper back carries over to my deads and my grip strength has gotten better Workout D Squat 5/3/1 Good Mornings (3 sets) - kills the hammies and teaches me on not rounding my upper back during squats Core work As the title says, I'm interested in playing with the snatch and snatch grip related lifts, but don't exactly know how to program it in. After I finish my current cycle and my training to be a mini triathlete, I will be taking on the 10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge, then into my third cycle so I have more than enough time to iron this plan out. Workout A Press 5/3/1 Pull/Chin Ups between Press sets Floor Presses Snatch High Pulls Workout B Deadlift 5/3/1 Reverse Hypers between DL sets (perfect world) Squat 3x5 or 5x5 (my squat needs more volume than 5/3/1 offers) Core work Workout C Bench 5/3/1 Pull/Chin Ups between Bench Incline Bench or Push Press (???do push presses carry over to strict press???) Kroc rows Workout D Squat 5/3/1 Snatch Grip Core work
  9. Quite a straightforward challenge for me this time round, and something of a natural follow on from my last challenge where I fell short of my goals for the Snatch and Clean & Jerk. Starting Stats: As of 10 April 2014. Bodyweight: 88.7kg Bodyfat %: ??% Snatch: 82kg Clean & Jerk: 100kg Clean: 110kg Back Squat: 182kg Front Squat: 140kg Deadlift: 200kg Bench: 95kg Also worth pointing out that I'm on a calorie deficit of about 250-300 day as I cut down to the 85kg weight class. I ran the whole of the last challenge on a ~500 calorie deficit as the muscle I have put on since the start of the year and my training volume meant my calculation of maintenance calories was too low! Goal 1 - Achieve a Bodyweight Snatch This has been a sub-goal for a long time and its time has finally come. I've got the strength, I've got the technique, I've got the courage to throw myself under that sucker. It's just a matter of putting it all together at the same time. Target here is 87.5kg or 90kg snatch depending on my precise bodyweight at the time. Goal 2 - Keep a Sleep Log for the Six Weeks My sleep isn't too bad in general, 7-8 hours a night is fairly normal for me but there's always room for improvement. I feel noticeably better when I get to bed early and get 8 hours plus. By keeping a log, I'd like to try and spot any patterns between my sleep and the quality of my training and work out ways to save time to allow me to sleep more. Goal 3 - Get Stronger At Everything Although I'm a competitive weightlifter, I do a lot of additional strength work. My programming is quite Russian in flavour so I press, bench and do a bunch of accessory work alongside the usual Snatch, C&J and Squat. Basically during this 6 weeks, I want to get stronger at all of the additional lifts I do. In particular, a 100-110kg bench press and some squat rep maxes (I don't think I'll be doing a 1RM attempt in the next 6-7 weeks) would be SWEET but I'll take what I can get. Let's hit it.
  10. Main Goal: Become world champion in kettlebell sport. (shooting for the stars!) Where I'm at: Since joining NF in june last year I went to my first international competition, finished my kettlebell-trainer degree + physical tests, set up a small group training, found 12 people crazy enough to train with me and won the dutch national championships. Unfortunately lately I've been struggling a lot and my challenges have been suffering. Therefore this challenge will be focused on getting back on track! Goal 1: 90% of success is showing up! Though it's been an important step to plan and obsess over my training setup, now it's time to just show up and do the work. #do the work 7 days a week, #get used to RPE for logging, #do handstands for fun Goal 2: gotta make weight! Currently I weigh 72kg but I would like to compete in the -68kg. The challenge will be getting there without going absolutely bonkers/crazy/obsessed. Oh and without sacrificing any training or muscle. The plan; #start tracking intake, #100 grams of protein, #shoot for 1700-2000 calories. Goal 3: consistency and support yo. Best training results coincide with good challenge participation and regularly updated threads. The goal is; #update thread 5 times a week. #use it to log training, not just chitchat Finally got a new phone, it has a slowmotion camera!
  11. I took the last challenge off because I was too busy living my life to come online and participate here. Things have settled down a bit so I'm back into it! Goal 1 - Weight loss (CON 2 | CHA 1) So I don't fit into my uniform that I'm expected to wear in the last week of this challenge... My quads and hamis are too big, so I'm hoping with a bit of fat loss they will fit! * Lose 3kg * Goal: 79kg * Stretch goal: 77kg (5kg loss) Goal 2 - Running (DEX 2.5 | STA 2.5) I used to be a big runner, but after an overuse injury I threw it all in for strength training and CrossFit. I have a thing coming up in 3 months where I'll be expected to do HEAPS of running and I don't feel like I'm mentally or physically ready for it. Sure, my fitness is there but I really hate running these days! So... Back to the grind. * Run 3 long runs per week * Run 1-2 sprint sessions per week * Track speeds with Polar HRM (GPS) * Goal: 2.4km in 13 minutes Goal 3 - Oly Lifting (STR 4) I have hit a wall with my lifting recently. Partly because I'm not fueling my body like I used to so that I can lose some weight, but also because my upper body strength isn't where it needs to be. My upper back and my catch position are a bit weak so I need to work on that. * Develop upper body strength and stability (snatch press, DB strict press, OHS, snatch balance) * Develop back strength (Pendlay rows, snatch deadlifts, pull-ups) * Goal: Snatch 50kg * Goal: 3 extra strength sessions per week Goal 4 - Clean up (WIS 3) I will be moving in 3 months so it's time to get rid of all this crap I have around the house! Seriously, it is beyond ridiculous how much ONE person can own! I think I need to have a garage sale. * Goal: Pack all unwanted stuff into boxes * Consider garage sale
  12. Hi everyone. Could you have a look at my most recent Clean and Jerk/Snatch? I was working up to a max for each, I hit 190 on the C&J which was a 5 lb PR for me. I did it twice, it felt a little like my arms weren't locking out, but you can't really see it in the video. My snatch was horrible today, I feel like I keep losing it in the front. It looks like I'm not using any hips/legs to do the snatch and my arms are bending a bit early. I couldn't hit 135 on the snatch (I had a 150 snatch on Monday, when I did it before the C&J), so I backed off the weight and started power snatching. I worked my weight up to 135 and missed 145 a few times. I put my heaviest lifts for each in slow mo as well, to get a better look at them. Any suggestions on where I can improve? Video I also can't seem to get it to embed, any know how to do that? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWrB9r02Ik8
  13. I should start by saying that I'm a Ranger. Well, a Warrior trying to disguise herself as a Ranger! But really, my strengths are in lifting and I really feel like focusing on what I love this challenge - Olympic lifting! Main Quest: To get body weight Olympic lifts! (Obviously this is a work in progress!!) Current body weight: 86.6kg/191lbs (14/9/13) Height: 183cm (6'0) of freaky femurs and positive ape index! (Being all limbs makes lifting a rather interesting adventure!) Current PRs: Clean & Jerk: 60kg/132lbs Clean: 65kg/143lbs Jerk: 65kg/143lbs Snatch: 45kg/99lbs Bench press: 50kg/110lbs Deadlift: 102.5kg/226lbs Back squat: 77kg/170lbs Front squat: 65kg/143lbs Goal 1: Get Rid of the Dead Weight! (CON 2 | CHA 1) I have been eating Paleo for a long time now, but have let a few not-so-favourable things back into my diet. Nothing too horrid in the scheme of things, but my nutrition hasn't been optimal (read: full of sugarrrrrrr) and all it has been doing is supporting the extra body fat that I have. So, I'm going back to basics this challenge! It's Whole30 time again! So that means - * Whole30 for the entire challenge* Attend Whole9 seminar * Read the following books - - It Starts With Food - The Paleo Solution - In Defense of Food - Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It* Drink 2L water per day* Log all food End of Challenge Goal:* Drop 3kg Goal 2: Olympic Liftinggggggggggg! (STR 2 | DEX 2) I LOVE Oly lifts. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. It's true... I have the t-shirt! * 3 Oly lifting sessions per week - 2 individual coaching sessions, 1 extra (self-driven or WOD) * Focus on The Outlaw Way lifting drills End of Challenge Goals: * Snatch 50kg/110lbs* C&J 70kg/154lbs (may perform as individual lifts) Goal 3: Shut Up and Squat! (STR 3.5 | STA 0.5) The major thing holding me back with my cleans is my front squat and my back squat is pretty crap for my size as well. I had a knee injury earlier this year, so I wasn't able to squat for quite a while but things are back on track now so I'm gradually building my strength and technique. I am currently half-way through the Hatch squat program and will hopefully finish with enough downtime to re-test my back and front squats before the end of the challenge. * Complete Hatch squat program End of Challenge Goals: * Back squat 80kg (though a body weight squat would be amazing!) * Front squat 70kg Fitness Side Quest: Sleeeeeeeeeeeeep! (CON 2)Nice and simple, but oh so important! * Sleep >=8 hours per night. End of Challenge Goal: I'll allow 2 nights of <8 hours sleep. Life Side Quest: Get Your Stuff Together! (WIS 2) There is so much paperwork lying around in my study, it is beyond ridiculous! So this challenge I am going to file it all away and get into a habit of filing things as they come in. I also think it's about time I went through my old paperwork and got rid of the stuff I don't need anymore. Okay, so it's not quite that bad...!!! * Organise paperwork and receipts into folders* Sort old receipts and paperwork and discard if not required* Submit tax! ugh! End of Challenge Goal: * To have all paperwork nicely filed away and sorted * Tax submitted Alright, let's do this!
  14. "Well well well, what do we have here, an AWOL ODST trooper returning back to Firebase Alpha." This is my quiet little re-entry back in to the world of Nerd Fitness, proper strength training, the Warriors Guild and finding an income. I'll try to stick by the challenge script. For a bit of a background, as of the 18th of Sept, I'll have been without employment for a whole 365, an achievement which hasn't appeared on my XBOX, gone through the drag of 6 months of failed job applications and interviews and of not having daily objectives to achieve, went back to university to start a Masters in Project Management and now I need to hit the streets again and get out of this (more on that later). Even without work life has been hectic: I've planted a church with some good friends in a close by city, have played my first season of soccer since I was 6, (Regular season Wins:2 Draws:2 Losses: 14) Go Citylife FC! Have limited my own training by bungling up my shoulder nicely. Have started training a younger guy in the Ways of the Warrior out of my garage. Challenge main quest: Back to basics 1. Regular garage strength training 3x a week, rehab permitting 2. Run 2x a week, LSD or sprint sessions, to be tracked and posted here. 3. Rugby skills every week. Challenge life quest: Get an Income 1. Find employment via the traditional methods regularly, apply for 5 jobs per week If any are available. 2. Cold call 10 companies, either phone, face to face or email. 3. Complete initial market research for start-up. Challenge side quest: Shoulder wellness Shoulder hasn't been fully functional in a long time. Exacerbated the problem about 6 months ago, went from impingement on any over hand vertical pull, pull ups, lat pull downs, to being unable to bench, OHP, hold my arm out horizontal. Finally sucked it up and went to the docs, initial assessment was an inflammation of the supraspinatus tendon. Ultrasound shows an impingement. Recovery: 10 days of anti inflammatory tables as provided by the doc. Steroid injection scheduled for this Thurs, 48 hours without any resistance after that. Build up shoulder from the ground up, rotator cuff health. More later Peace
