Come on, guys! 2nd workout of our in-house comp today: Double DT (115/75) Partners split up however needed. Immediately following: 4 minutes to get max points from: -Pull ups (1 point) -C2b (2 points) -Bar muscle up (7 points) My partner & I finished double DT in 6:47 but only got 53 points in the 4 min AMRAP. I was able to hit 3 BMU, missing my 4th before switching to C2B then to PU. My partner could only get a couple of pull-ups. We split up DT into 2 movements at a time, so she did 12 DL then 8 hang cleans, then I did 1 hang clean into 6 s2o into 11 DL, so there was really smooth transitioning there. Then came the lifting…holy. volume. Snatch (basing these off of 150# now, which is 4# above my max, but I am trying to train my body to get used to these numbers): 3 @ 90 2×3 @ 100 3 @ 105 2×3 @ 115 2×3 @ 105 During the first set of 115 I went oxxoo, I had a hard time focusing during this set while everyone was completing the in-house comp. Not a good excuse but my head wasn’t in it yet. Clean & Jerk: 3 @ 100 2×3 @ 110 3 @ 115 2×3 @ 125 2×3 @ 130 2×2 @ 140 Back Squat: 2×4 @ 135 4 @ 145 3 @ 155 2×3 @ 170 2×3 @ 180 2×2 @ 190 Snatch Pulls: 2×2 @ 125 The volume is crazy but I absolutely love it. My body was JUNK after the clean & jerks, but somehow these back squats felt better than they have since before I separated my shoulder a year & a half ago. I was honestly going to cut out the last 2×2 @ 190# because I didn’t think I had it in me, but I hit them easier than the 2×3 @ 180. I really need to dial in on my BS form though, because I noticed that I come up on my toes when the weight gets above 160ish. No bueno for the knees!! Was also able to fix my cleans a bit! My hips have been unhappy for years, & cleaning can blow up my lower back, but I figured out how to position myself at the start so that I eliminate the pain – I pulled my knees & chest back a bit & BOOM, no pain! My jerks are still messy – I can’t seem to bend my back leg enough to keep my torso upright. I am trying to clean it up during my lighter weights.
