Double Barrel 2017-06-12

I’ve been pretty apathetic and unmotivated in lifting lately. This culminated in a terrible performance at the Fortius competition. After this, I kind of lost interest in logging training sessions and performance. I’m starting to feel a bit more motivated with the purchase of a new Rogue European Steel Weightlifting bar. 

TOTAL FOR THE DAY

  • 80+84=164

Morning weight

  • 186.0#

AM Session

  • Single arm (at a time) dumbbell presses
    • 25#, 30#, 35# × 10
  • Dumbbell lat raises
    • 10# × 10 × 3
  • Shoulder raises on machine
    • 50# × 10 × 3
  • Plank (push-up, side, side, standard)
    • 1 min, 1 min, 1 min, 1 min

Noon Session

  • Overhead squat
    • 95#, 115#, 135# × 10
    • I want to try and do this once a week and see if I can gradually increase the top weight. 
  • Snatch Pull + Snatch
    • 95#, 115#, 135#, 155#, 165#, 175#X, 175#X, 175# × 1
    • Although it took three attempts I was happy to hit 175# (80 kg) because I’ve been missing this weight (87%) a lot lately
  • Clean Pull + C&J
    • 135#, 155#, 175#, 185#, 205#X × 1
    • I’ve been terrible at jerks lately, so it’s not surprising that I missed the jerk at 205# (93 kg, 85%). I probably should have taken two more attempts at this weight like I did for the snatch but I was running out of time. 

PM Session

  • Jerk from the blocks
    • 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100X, 90, 90×2
    • These felt incredibly heavy and slow. I’ve been terrible at driving under the bar and keep having a pain in my sternum after doing heavy jerks.
  • Power Snatch
    • 40, 50, 60, 65X, 65, 70X×1
    • I was supposed to do down sets but my shoulders were killing me in the turn over and catch. This was pretty disappointing given how good they felt in the morning and noon sessions. I was supposed to do strict press after this but skipped it because of my shoulders, especially my left. 
  • Back Squat
    • 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110 for some reps
    • 120×3 with knee wraps and a belt
    • 110×3×2 for down sets
