day 2232 – jerk complex

still a week of getting comfortable with the clean and jerk motion. staying on the light side doing the tech work. the complex is the same as last week with the exception of doubling up on the jerks. i definitely felt better and more stable compared to last session. my body is gradually remembering what it used to do, but one thing i realize from the video is my split stance is on the short side

day 2216 – paused snatch complex

looking down at apex from the new warmup and stretching area. i went into the gym ready to do my third week of passed snatch complex, hoping to reach beyond green plates i couldn’t make last week. coach changed it up on me. instead of doing six times, he cut it down to three before going for singles. to my amazement, i beat my personal best by one kilogram which takes me up to forty three kilograms. i made two more attempts at forty four and almost made that if i hadn’t over-corrected it. either way, i’m happy with the new pr knowing i’m only two kilograms shy of the yellow plates. at the end of the workout, i didn’t think twice and just went for the back flip when asked to do one. this would be my first back flip on solid hard ground

day 1126 – gobble

woke up feeling a tad lightheaded, perhaps the lack of sleep is the cause. after finishing my complexes, i got myself a vanilla latte and fed myself chicken and potatoes for lunch. thinking that spiking my sugar level, eating and upping my blood pressure would help.  also dealt with some bank issue. they finally for it correct after the fourth try; if i have to go into the bank one more time for this purpose, i’d be really angry
