Squats-
10 @ bar
3 @ 70
6 x 3 @ 110 (belt & sleeves)

Split Squats-
2 x 10 @ 20

Seated Good Morning
2 x 10 @ 20

Weighted Ankle Rotations
1 x max @ 6kg

Russian Twists
3 x 20 @ 8kg

Squats felt great. Like 6-7 RPE.

Ball game at 10.15 (worst game time ever). Was a pretty average game but then one of our guys goes and dislocates his shoulder with about 8 minutes left. Waited about 40 mins for the ambulance to show up. Rough night.

C&J Stuff- trained at home so was limited in what I could do. Plenty of work with the stick. Ended with some power cleans to 50kg

Clean Pulls-
60 x 3
100 x 3
130 x 2
150 x 2, 1, 1

Bar fell apart, literally, on the last rep. Took my about 10 minutes to screw it back in and by that time the mojo had gone.

Need to pull my ego in on these lifts. The clean pulls were more like poor deadlifts and I'm not getting the benefit of either. Probably need to work around the 120-130 range till I can keep my hips low throughout the pull. Mental note to check the ego at the door and I'll get much more benefit in the future.

Very technical. But if weight is too heavy then the hips can lift higher than the chest.
Also make sure shoulders over the bar.

Yes this is exactly what was happening. It was a good ego check to drop the weights down and do them properly.

Ball game last night. Surprisingly felt really good. Our team played a Spurs like game too. Lots of intelligent passing and movement off the ball. Won easily. Body feels a bit rough this morning though.

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.

Looking over these goals again and setting some more realistic targets for the next 9 weeks. I have two main over arching goals for that time frame:

- Get the mobility required to actually do olympic lifting- 4 dedicated stretching sessions a week
- Add some size and strength- I'm 95 still with the top 4 abs- don't want to go crazy but want to be 98 by Christmas (3 weeks to get to 98 then 4 weeks to recomp a little)

Lifting goals are:

- 160 back squat- this is still very doable
- ??? clean pull- now that I'm understanding more on this idk. I'll take what I can get
- snatch and C&J- going to work the hell out of technique with bar and dowel only for the next 4-6 weeks and then have a test prior to xmas. Will see how that pans out.

Ball game last night. These games are borderline ridiculous. At one point I had three guys holding my arms while going for rebounds and the ref just looks at me like I'm crazy. I'm bigger than these guys but not that much bigger. Tbh I enjoy the struggle but wouldn't mind a few calls here and there. I played ok and we won which is the main point I suppose.

300m swim. Got a quick swim in while kids were doing lessons. 25m laps with 20-30s rest between each. Arms felt pumped afterwards. Most surprisingly wsa the breathing. I actually got it and had I slowed the stroke down could have gone for a lot longer.

Side note- Haven't forgotten about my 40 by 40 plan. I'm currently working out my week to lift weights 4 days (Mon/Tue/Thurs/Fri), sprint/jump 1-2 (def Sat/maybe Wed). Putting this here to bring my focus back to it.

4km run/walk with my daughter riding her bike and our dog not riding his bike. It was a slow easy pace and she stopped frequently.

Decided to get straight into some snatch work that I had been intentionally neglecting.

Snatch
bar x 3
30 x 2
40 x 2
50 x 2
Power Snatch
60 x 2  :personal-record:
70 x F

I was actually attempting to full snatch 60 but my body just wouldn't allow it. Some self preservation I guess haha. Was a PR though as I have never put anything more than 50kg overhead. It was actually super easy too.

Just started a new 5 day per week program. Same guys as before but this one comes with all the instructional material so I actually know what I'm doing.

Snatch slow deadlift on plates- 4 x 3 @ 50
Snatch high pull on plates + snatch- 4 x 2+2 @ 40
Back Squat- 4 x 5 @ 100 (warmed up using plates under mid foot)
Pendlay Row- 3 x 12 @ 40

30 mins stretching.

*Edit- I should mention the pulls and squats on plates were kind of amazing. Forced me to balance over the mid/ball of my foot. Squats were all quads too which is the way they wanted.
