I'm eager to see what progress I have made. This year I think I'm most excited to see which workout they repeat.

I might be the only person on earth praying for a repeat of 16.5

16.5? Are you crazy?!

Although I might fit the crazy profile myself....I'm hoping for 16.4...

I like burpees, especially the over-bar kind, as well as thrusters and the combination of the two, so I guess I am.

 

16.4 was quite the race, I'm not that fond of workouts where I might run out of time before I get to do all the moves. Although something tells me the repeat workout won't be one from 2016. At least I hope so, because the 2016 Games had too many 2016 Games repeat workouts it felt like a dejavu.

uuuugggh, is it already this time again? This is bonkers. 

 

I second @DarK_RaideR, repeats not likely out of 2016. I predict triple-unders showing up in the regionals...

I've lost a bit of weight so the view from below me won't look as bad this year :encouragement: :P:P:P :abnormal:

Haha!  Conversely, I've put on weight and I don't feel like my conditioning is anywhere near as good.  But, hey, when are we ever really ready for something?  :courage:

 

Just have to get past my weightlifting meet on the 28th then I'll start focusing on getting my ducks in a row for the Open.  :excitement:

Is it a powerlifting meet or Oly in there too?

Just Oly. I got a PR on my Oly total last week at 195 kg (430 lbs) so here's hoping that keeps up. :)

That sounds heavy!

 

Gotta be at least 3 different lifts in that total?

 

Power Clean PR for me today at 90kg :D

Two lifts: snatch and clean and jerk. Hoping to break that total on Saturday.

@Niccolo how did the meet go?

It went really well!  I got a PR on my snatch at 89 kg (196 lbs), a PR on my total at 199 kg (438 lbs), and a PR on my clean at 115 kg (253 lbs)!  I missed the jerk at 115 and got buried when I tried at 116 kg.

 

Here's a pic of the PR snatch!16388072_1368090833222255_85322664544509

 

Bring on the Open!!!!

Excellent, 89kg snatch and 115kg Clean, that's awesome!! Well done :applause: 

 

I'm always interested in the gear people use, what's that suit you've got on? It's got kind of a superhero look to it! The knee sleeves look interesting too, what brand are they?

The singlet is a "space armor" one from Lift Big Eat Big. It fits pretty well and looks awesome so I like it. :)

The knee sleeves are from Hookgrip. $12-15 a pair and they provide a bit of compression and warmth. My knees had some issues and these helped get past that.
