At this time gym is usually busy mostly the cables and benches so will have to make adjustments all the time but as long as the same muscle is targeted then it's ok. Power cleans are fun and good but 50kg it was tiring.

It was a good session, the power cleans have good effect on explosiveness and power even if I don't catch the bar from under, I want to minimize have to squat down just to catch it, I want to be able to bring the bar up to my shoulders. squats comfortable and ready to move on.

Soreness: lower body fatigued

Condition: Supposed to wake up at 9am and get to the track at around 10:30am. But woke up at 10:30am FML and got to the gym at 11:45am. Had 1hr 15min to do warm up and workout, which is not enough. Track was wet so my sprint starts didn't work as my back leg completely slipped and I didn't cover any distance.

Track warm up
   ankle walks
   calf hops
   hamstring kick stretches
   lunge hamstring stretches
   walking quad stretches
   hip flexor stretch
   back stretch

   Sprint starts
      - 1 step x 1 - second one slipped
      - 2 step x 1 - less effort as I didn't want to slip

Workout
      2 x 10m hill sprints
      2 x 10m sled sprints @15kg
      2 x 10m sprints unloaded
      2 x 30m sled sprints @10kg
      1 x 30m sprints
      - Time ran out

Cool down
   stretch
   walk back

Comment
The sprints I managed to do were good especially the 10m sprint unloaded felt good and learning about a slight forward lean to help get my legs better in position to sprint and get a good angle was a good find. But at 30m legs were slightly fatigued so wasn't as good as the 10m but still was good.

Good session. Did some jumps after the half squats and I could feel the difference in air time, much longer. 60kg Power cleans almost can catch under it, I can bring it almost high enough, just need to push my elbows out and catch it. But good session, legs feel good after.

Comment
Good workout session, tried to hurry up the session so I could fit everything in, but still ran out of time that I couldn't complete the workout and my quads became very sore because the squats plus when doing the back extensions my quads were playing an assistant role but could feel it happening and just relax the quads and just solely work the hamstring, which made it easier and comfortable.
Power cleans at 60kg is coming up high, just need to progress the bar a bit higher than shoulder so I can catch under it without having to squat.

Bad session. Raining,  sled weights taken from me so have an empty sled. They are not going to get a mention when I become famous. Runs felt healthy and that's about it.

re: your power cleans

So I'm not an expert by any means but I have received several coaching sessions on this lift, as well as online feedback and have worked on it pretty consistently for a few years.

Definite feedback:
-get coaching, post on a reddit for powerlifting at least. This lift is very difficult to learn on your own and every single incorrectly done rep is a big setback because it builds bad habits.
-start with hang/block (knee level) power cleans. They will transfer a lot more to sprinting and are generally considered an easier (introductory) lift because of the shorter range of motion.
-you can't be afraid of the bar hitting your collarbones. use a little less power so it doesn't go quite so high over them and hit them so hard. you should not be leaning back when you are catching the bar, but a slight forward lean, like a quarter squat. It's ok to have a slight backwards lean during the lift, but you have to return to that forward lean by the time you catch it.
-- work on your wrist flexibility so you can catch properly with your upper arms parallel to the ground.
-your bar path should be pretty much vertical, with a very slight horizontal pop when your hips contact the bar. You are popping it away from your body way too far.

feedback I am not 100% on:
-I think you are doing this movement with mostly your quads. It doesn't feel like you are getting much power out of the hip drive, it just looks like you are popping it up with your quarter squat.

This is the introductory progression I was taught when being coached this lift:
-Start in quarter squat with hips back
-relax your traps and focus on keeping them relaxed throughout the movement
-perform a hang power clean, focusing on getting the power from hip movement, not knee movement
-make sure you catch it in proper power position (with a slight upper body forward lean) EVERY SINGLE TIME

Don't worry about the weight at all for now, it will take a while to rebuild habits and relearn the lift

Thanks for getting back to me on that, I was starting to think that I was doing it right.

My upper body is shorter than my legs, so I can't get the bar to hip level without bring my arms wider than shoulder width and that makes it hard to catch on the shoulder wide. It only reaches my upper thigh.

My one question is when doing the power cleans are you thrusting the bar forward with your hips or are you more of jumping up and the hip automatically comes forward and hits the bar unintentionally.

I guess I should bend my knees less and bring my hips more back to make it a hip drive. I RDL the weight down and then bring it up to my thighs and then jump and bring bar up.

Thanks

Edit: Looking at hang power clean technique videos they bring the bar to mid thigh then when do the clean they bring knee forward and jump and bring bar up, like they shift forward.

I asked a similar question about jumping vs thrusting the bar forward on reddit and here's the response I got:

"Don't fixate on the "scoop"; just keep the bar close with your lats and your shoulders over the bar, then when you reach your power position drive your feet through the floor - so your hips should be going up not humping the bar forward. If you keep the bar close, it will contact your thighs, but will do so at an angle that doesn't push the bar out(like a stone skipping on water)."

So you're definitely not aiming to hit the bar forward, but it should be a mix of the hip thrust and quads jumping up. I'm not saying don't use your quads at all (cause that is a big part of the lift), I'm just saying I don't feel like you are getting much out of your hips.

I get what you are saying about having to grip it wide, but I think your catch is the biggest problem right now and maybe even the rest of the problems are coming from that. If you work on wrist flexibility you should at least be able to get close to a good catch.

Now that I think about it, when I perform the jump, I only jump and try and catch from the jump rather than thinking about using my hips in the jump, so you are right that I am using my quads only as i'm only jumping.

The power position being the part where the bar is touching your thighs right before you jump up? this would mean the knees would have to come forward in order to keep the bar in contact as hips being back would mean the upper thighs would be back too.

What if I do the hang power snatch instead, wouldn't that be more power generation then power cleans meaning I don't have to catch the bar on my shoulders.

Saw this video. Nice. You can see he has to move his knees forward to bring the bar to the power position.

Yes, the knees do come forward slightly.
And I think hang power snatch would work and I have seen a pretty good youtube sprinter do that but you still need to solve the problem of the bar traveling really far forward after your hips contact with it. On the other hand it does require a bunch of shoulder mobility to be able to catch it with upright torso. It's probably tougher to get right.

So I found this video, it's the main part of the movement and the difficult part.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNsVneXCTDE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CNsVneXCTDE</a>

In terms of bar travelling far from body I will practice by just moving the bar from the hip using arms and keeping bar close.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13r6_OYwEdk" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13r6_OYwEdk</a>

But got to practice the scoop a lot.

Wait, just to be clear, you shouldnt be using your arms very much, especially not "moving the bar from your hips using arms". If anything, you should be practicing not using your arms. Your arms do come into play but when the weight gets heavy, not with light weight. At this stage your arms should be assisting in keeping the bar on the correct path but definitely not initiating the movement or anything like that.

Wait, just to be clear, you shouldnt be using your arms very much, especially not "moving the bar from your hips using arms". If anything, you should be practicing not using your arms. Your arms do come into play but when the weight gets heavy, not with light weight. At this stage your arms should be assisting in keeping the bar on the correct path but definitely not initiating the movement or anything like that.

Oh I see.
I watched a video from mark rippetoe, who said you jump up with the arms straight and after you have jumped you lift the bar up well basically guiding the bar up and then you catch it from under.

But if I don't lift the bar up after the bar starts moving upward from the jump, it won't get up that high, there has to be some even if a little use of the arms to lift the bar up.

Date: 15/10/2019
Soreness: none

Condition: Evening gym session from 5:15pm to 7:45pm. Was feeling good. Gym was crowded but the platform I wanted to use got free when I was finished at another platform so that was good.

Warm up
   ankle mobility
   calf stretch
   hamstring stretch seated
   quad stretch on bench
   single leg hamstring stretch
   single leg glute bridge and double leg
   high knee lifts /w kettlebell - cable not available at this time
   squat stretch
   back stretch

Workout
   Jump Squats
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 3 x 5 @30kg

   Half Squats
      - 1 x 5 @60kg
      - 1 x 4 @100kg
      - 3 x 7 @120kg

   Calf raises
      - 3 x 15 @120kg

   Back extensions
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 1 x 5 @60kg
      - 3 x 7 @70kg

   Power snatch
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 2 x 4 @30kg

   Bent over rows
      - 2 x 5 @60kg

   Shoulder press
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 1 x 4 @30kg
      - 2 x 5 @35kg

   Kneeling crunches
      - 1 x 5 @30kg
      - 2 x 12 @65kg

   Lying knee raises
      - 2 x 10 @20kg

   Oblique cable twists
      - 1 x 5 @20kg
      - 1 x 5 each side @35kg comfortable

   power snatch practice
      - using light bar 10kg
      - using heavy 20kg bar
      - Note: Major progress made - using the video from mark rippetoe about the arm pulling which is initiated when coming down from the jump, I understand when to initiate the pull and also to track the bar close to my body. But a lot of concentration is required and at the scoop phase the knee and hip bend is small so jumping from there would be difficult but it can be done. Will record a video. 5kg plates added can be done but it's a challenge.

Cool down
   stretch
   walk back

Comment
Major progress on the snatch, squats are comfortable. The others are ok.
Hard part of snatch is getting enough hip bend at the scoop phase as when the knees move slightly forward to make the torso erect, the hips extend slightly too, so will practice more to snatch from the scoop phase before lowering the weight, but elbow bending is not a problem. Power snatch useful in recruiting fast twitch fibres and to be more explosive in a short time where you extend and flex the hips as quickly as possible. Even after power snatching light weight, I feel very light and explosive after. Vert definitely seems to be improving.
