day 2251 – overhead lifts

starting october strong lifting at apex. i like taking videos during training so i can review and analyze them, also a good way to track progress. worked through the waves for both snatches and clean and jerks, both feeling pretty good. snatch wave up to thirty eight kilos and clean and jerk wave up to forty nine kilos while only failing one of each is considered an improvement. the new coach helping out at apex is also an olympic lifter so i’m looking forward to getting double the amount of feedback

day 2239 – clean and jerk

third and final week of analyzing my clean and jerk to pinpoint where the weak point of the lift lies. in the previous two sessions, i was restricted to use only what i could strict press. i was given the green light today to test out what’s the heaviest i could safely clean and jerk. my initial thought was i wouldn’t be disappointed if i could reach forty kilograms. i kept adding the minis bit by bit and surprised myself with a fifty two kilogram max. maybe i should have set the bar a little lower but that would be selling myself short
