    Gonna log here for abuse purposes as everywhere else is either dead or american. Currently chasing a 200kg weightlifting total at around 86kg but tryin' to work around some shoulder related niggles and being a big pansy-faced uterus.

    Today:
    Squatz...
    singles at 110-115-120-125-130-130-130(f)-130
    left it there. dumped the third 130 behind me. Damn quadz.

    Snatch:
    60x1, 65x1, 70x1, 75x2, 80x1

    Think the double at 75 is a pb. Got a bit hairy at 80. second time I've snatched in about six weeks so gotta be fairly happy with that. Shoulder is still a little hot, did all sorts of band related nonsense but it didn't help a whole lot.

    Edit: pressin' 55kg x10 x7 x5, no failin' +1kg next time

    Gotta remember to do this too.

    Headin to ironside tomorrow to get hyooooge!

    100 bills, and it's been wedged there for months!


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Right,
    Clean and jerked up to 85 for 5 singles. Jerk still a little ponderous.

    Rolled out to Ironside then and did some circuit stuff with logs, yokes and farmers handles. Messed about with two man flips on the 900lb tyre and some log clean and presses. Also messed around with stones then and loaded up an 80kg. Couldn't lap the 100. Strange movement, I like it a lot though. Finished with some overhead yoke walks. Spent a good while rambling on about crap afterwards too! Great place.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    weekend lacked any front page worthy shenanigans so the carcass was in reasonable nick today.
    Squatz, fives:
    100-110-115-120(pr)
    Some of these suckers looked a little SPF.

    chins: one set of 14. Was goin for 20 but got a dose of the malaise so called it there.

    Snatch: think i did two or three singles at 70. These were absolute gash today, it was like tryin to fly a helicopter on buckfast. Shoulder was not happy either.

    Rack jerk:
    60-70-80-85-90-95-100-105(pr)
    Dunno where that came from. Sat the bar a bit further into the heel of the palm and was aggressive out of the rack. locked it out before I could think about how heavy it was.

    Press 56kg:
    10-7-5

    ****in right, I'm gonna go straight in and test my one rep max no-no-no weighted star jump tomorrow. Righteous.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    right, snatched up to 78, not too bad, little sluggish though. Everything hurt during the warmup, wrists, knees elbows! Must've been teh inflammationz from that slice of bread I had last year.

    Clean and jerked up to 90 for about 5 singles, cleans were easy but jerks went to hell, no pressouts but a little manky.

    Squat: 125x3 and some singles and things at lower weights. Probably a limit set

    Chins, max: hit 18. Gonna try once more for 20 on saturday and leave it for another while

    Need to back off some things (and go to mcdonalds more)

    I'm pretty sure I'd be murdered if I did that.

    Murdered or praised as a visionary. Maybe everyone else wants to do banded preacher curls off the monolift. But need someone to lead the way. You can be their Jesus/Moses/Muad'dib!

    Right, felt like a boiled ****e today. Was gonna work to openers for saturday (78/95) but got a bit carried away.

    Snatch:
    failed 78 about 5 times, made it in the end, upped it to 83 and succeeded on the 2nd attempt, failed 86 twice, close on the first but the left elbow bent a bit . Soft as hell off the floor, that has to be fixed pronto. Second attempt involved me pulling the thing, getting tired and sitting on the floor. Edit: forgot, Hang power snatch: 60x3, legs nearly straight on receipt




    Clean and jerked up to 95, brought the grip out wider, which made the jerks a lot easier. Cleaned 100 but blacked out before the jerk so left it there.

    was gonna go for a heavy single on the squat but had some sense talked into me. Did a fairly unremarkable single at 125 and some more at 110.

    Chins: 11

    press 60x3 (killin' time)

    Should probably make some sort of training plan for after the nationals. Have some ideas anyway.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,375 ✭✭✭ columok


    Comedy fails.

    MOAR KURLOV


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Right, lifted in the nationals yesterday. Was planning on competing at 85 but was 87 odd last monday, ditched creatine and carbs and loaded water until the night before, weighed in at 82.5, which is unacceptable!

    Snatch:
    warmed up early (again). Hit 75 in the warmup, dropped it down to 60 and worked back up. Missed the last warmup at 75 behind and had to get to the platform

    78: good, 82: good, 86: missed behind, hadn't locked it out so it was basically too heavy.

    No break between the snatch and the clean and jerk and only managed to warm up to 85 before getting called. Decided I was gonna power clean the attempts.

    94 was easy so called for 98 which was a bastard of a power clean because I was knackered, jerk was ok though, called for 102 and had to squat clean it, pulled it high enough but was too slow under it and everything collapsed, the head wasn't in it at that stage anyway.

    Totalled 180, which was 2kg below the last comp on december but I'm 8kg lighter now. The facilities in jordanstown are unbelievable, everything seemed to run smoothly and there were some serious lifts. The standard seems to be a lot higher this year too so I've a lot of work to do in order to hit what I deem to be a level of non-****ness (100/130 by the looks of things!). Need to push for 90/110 and gain some weight first though.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Takin' a recovery/arsing around week. Just messed about today...

    8 reps:
    press
    bent row
    front squat
    good morning

    rest a few mins

    did 30-40-50kg, stuck with the press then...

    57kg: 7-5-5

    KURLZZZZZ
    35kg 3x12

    Funny thing, ordered some knee sleeves today and my patellar tendon started getting pissed off almost immediately. Stupid thing.

    Once you wash the sand out, I'm sure it'll be okay.

    Bah! Where's my dinner?!


    Right, still messing aimlessly, little hungover today...

    Press, 58kg, 8-7-5, pretty good, some grinding, no wrist wraps or belt (they don't seem to make a difference anymore)

    pottered around for about 30km on the bike

    Max reps handstand pushups:
    7. Meh.

    Bent over row, 60x10, 70x7.

    KURLZ:
    40kg, 3x8

    Tryin to do what teh Rippletoadz suggested in PP to alleviate the wrist torque...doesn't work

    Right, back to actual training on monday provided ****ers don't decide to evacuate the entire city on account of some aul one doing her shopping. It's bad enough I get ID'd going into work! rabble rabble rabble rabble rabble.
    New program should be interesting, lots of volume, quality reps. need to do some core work too as the dreaded pelvic tilt is on the way back. Not gonna be happy unless I hit that 90kg snatch before the leinsters, been hanging around 85 since bloody october!


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    right, back to actual training.
    snatch:
    60x3
    64x3
    68 x6x2 easy

    clean deadlift to knee +8s pause x3 110kg. easy

    cleans:
    65x3x4

    Just some target practice here. Was trying to get under as quickly as possible. Think I did something to my knee on the last one, very sore gettin into even an unweighted squat afterwards. Moved it around a bit more and it stopped hurting

    back squat:
    90x3, 97x3, 105x2x6 grand

    planks, 30s holds with 50kg then 60kg. Manageable enough.

    knee still feels ok. Wonder if it will in the morning though :/


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Clean and jerk:
    Supposed to be doubles at 80 but the knee got pissed off on one of the cleans again. Wrapped it up but it made no difference

    Paused snatch grip dead 8sx3x100kg

    front squat:

    5 doubles at 80, knee got pissed on the 5th set. Damn. Looks like this is hangin around. Gonna ice the bugger again and leave it a couple of days. Think it's a tendon.

    Did some pulldowns then, 65x10, 75x10, 85x8. These don't seem to bother my elbows as much as pullups for some reason.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Right, still icing the knee, hasn't talked to me today but decided to avoid any knee-bendin' till next week. Anyway, pressed yesterday....

    59kg
    7-5-4


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius


    Couldn't get to the gym today due to Barak Obama. Also, think I tweaked my QL, for which I'm gonna blame him too. He then had the gall to drive past my office and gloat by waving.

    Pressed at home...
    60kg

    5-4-4-5

    Last set was in the groove. Stickin with 60 next time too. Rolled the hell out of the hips, tried to get into the QL but I'll need a pitchfork for that.

  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 3,233 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Edwardius

    HSDLW8SPAK: 3x100kg
    Deep knee bendin': 3 doubles at 105, knee got a little annoyed so stopped.
    chinese rows: 3x15 a side with 40kg
    wide grip pulldowns: 60-55-50x7. These are ****ed up.
    KURLZ: ez bar+20kg 3x8
    planks, +50kg 3x30s

    Wore some light knee wraps. good move. Nothin remarkable apart from that. Gonna ice knee this evening and think of adding in some direct ham work at some point.

    power snatch 55 for 4 triples

    Pressed 60kg for a triple then missed the second of the next double. Bleh

    bored and waiting then...

    dumbbell bench:
    20sx10, 25sx2x10
    I like these

    Close grip bench, 50x8, 60x2x5

    35 km cycle.

    Rolled out to Howth hill and climbed the sutton side in 11.21 (on a MTB). Bit of a tailwind. Went up a second time because I'm an idiot, got passed by a whippet on a road bike like I was standing still :P, 12.09 on the second attempt. I'll try it sometime on a road bike and see if I can get sub-10.

    Hmmm.... I know it's not as much fun, but have you considered NOT going FR for
    awhile to see how your training would go? ;)

    No. Never!

    Might separate out the assistance and go a little lighter on it though.
