Some squats and presses last night. Body hurts like fuck. Have been a little sick but geez. Probs need to stretch some more too which usually isn't a problem for me.

Ball game. Easy game. Hit an early 3 from the corner which is odd for me as I don't normally shoot them. Inspired by Simmons maybe haha. Had a fast break opportunity where my teammate dogged me. Two on one and he was driving down the left side of the court. I ran a nice route and circled down the right looking for the lob. He took the player on and layed it up. Devo. Everyone in the stadium was expecting the lob. Everything felt good too. Shame.

5.30am

Snatch-
Bunch of very basic drills. Working through this without much progression at the moment. Need to get something here.
3 x 30
Power Snatch-
2 x 40
2 x 50

Clean and Jerk (I love the idea of the squat jerk but realistically I need to be hitting the split from here)-
50 x 2
60 x 2

Squats- (last set cue of looking up and opening my mouth out of the hole. Straight up imitation of Chinese lifters. Bar felt like a feather on my back with that. weird)
70 x 3
110 x 3, 3, 2, 3 - all belted sets

Clean pull-
110 x 3
140 x 3, 2, 2, 1 - straps for all sets.forgot my belt on the second set here. Legs were toast after these.

BTN Push Press
50 x 4, 4, 2

10 mins stretching and done.

I'm balls deep in olympic lifting at the moment and it's very cool. Looking to line up a novice comp soon but not sure if I need to be part of a club first or something. Research to do.

*Edit- interesting observation this morning. Have been sneaking in a bulk the last few weeks. Ideally want to get to 100 and be a fairly 95. Currently sitting at 92 and still have top 4 abs. Two things happened this morning that confirm I'm on the right track. On way to gym I just felt a bit bigger. Firstly after my second set of squats at 110 random guy comes over, compliments me on form then starts asking for squatting advice. Never happened before in my life. Squats were looking good though. Secondly I was getting some decent eye attention from the females in the general area. This has happened before (obviously haha) but happens less to me in the gym given how many huge dudes workout there. Both good signs and a little extra juice to get me off to a good week.

15/10/19

6pm

Snatch + OHS
bar x 2, 30 x 2, 40 x 2

High pull with rebend (panda pulls- straps on all sets)
60 x 2, 70 x 2, 75 x 2, 80 x 2, 85 x 2

Snatch Pulls
90 x 2, 100 x 2, 110 x 2, 120 x 2

All the pulls felt great. Was training at home so took the snatch practice easy. Trying not to destroy my garage


16/10/19


9.30am - fasted

Clean, FS & Jerk
bar x 1, 30 x 1, 40 x 1, 50 x 1, 60 x 1, 70 x 1  :personal-record: - going to have lots of PRs here I think. Not too much history on this stuff. Felt solid though.

Front Squat- belt and knee sleeves
80 x 3, 90 x 3, 100 x 2, 2, 1

Clean Pulls
Hook Grip- 100 x 3, 120 x 3
Straps- 130 x 3, 140 x 3, 140 x 1

BTN Push Jerk
bar x 2, 30 x 2, 40 x 1, 50 x 1, 60 x 1

Push Press-
40 x 3, 50 x 1
Was meant to do 5 sets. I ran completely out of gas. Session was about an hour 20 mins and I was doing it just on coffee. Need to rethink that. Felt great early but hit an absolute wall late.

Looking at some end of year goals. There's some novice comps floating in Dec and Jan. Aiming at 80kg snatch and 100kg C&J which is completely doable. Also want 200kg pull and 160 BS by then too. Also completely doable. Means adding 30kg to squat and 40 to pull. Have been eating 3k plus cals the last few days and this will be the new minimum. Was lean AF this morning so will reassess at the end of the week and see where to go from there.

Ball game last night. Note to self- don't do a heavy ass session of squats and deadlifts before a game lol. Had ok hops off two legs but I airballed a layup when I got zero air off one leg  :uhhhfacepalm:  Perhaps the single most embarrassing moment of my basketballing career. Other than that we smashed the other team. They were all Chinese guys who didn't seem to really understand the rules and the language barrier was an issue. Their big kept pushing me under the rim on rebounds and the refs called everyone of them. He didn't stop though haha.

Strained my mid back again on the right hand side. Exact same spot as last time. Need to work out what's going on there. Not as bad as last time but I'll be taking a couple of days off lifing.

Didn't train all weekend. Back is only just good now. It's right beside and below my right scap. Funny thing is I think my breathing is pretty spot on. Lots of diaphram breathing and not much in the chest. How wrong I am. Every time I would breathe into my chest my back would hurt which as it turns out I do a lot. Funny to catch myself doing it so often.

Training to come later.
