Hi All,

Tore a hip flexor in May, whilst doing Smolov as a result of injuring my shoulder doing the Russian programme... so thought I'd give the journal another go.

Have competed in one Strongman competition in April, Novice - Londons Strongest - Came second.

Personal PB's:
Deadlift - 270kg
Squat - 210kg
Strict OHP - 105kg
Push Press - 130kg
Bench Press - 155kg
Snatch (badly) - 60kg
C&J (badly) - 110kg
Log - 110kg

Aim is to get back into the swing of it again, and lose a bit of weight into the 105kg's. Currently at 113kg.

Coached Olympic Lifting

If anything, the break has done me good (in terms of flexibility), so a overhead squat no longer poses any issues.

Went right back to basics, as my previous form was awful. So was very reliant on the coach to help me out.

Hip Snatch
Bar x 1 x 3
30kg x 1 x 3
40kg x 1 x 3

Hang Snatch
40kg x 1 x 5
45kg x 1 x 5

Full Snatch
45kg x 1 x 3
50kg x 1 x 3
55kg x 1 x 3
57.5kg x 1 x 2

First time I've ever performed a full snatch, my wrists were saying no!

Cleans:
60kg x 1 x 5
80kg x 1 x 5
100kg x 1 x 3

C&J (first time trying split jerk)
100kg x 1 x 3 - Not splitting enough
105kg x 1 x 2 - Still not splitting enough - out of time!

Olympic Back Squat for 1RM:

105kg x 5
140kg x 3
160kg x 3
180kg x 1
190kg x 1

All relatively easy, seem to be getting the groove back on this one. Had a really fun session, will do it more often.

Deadlifts - Straps
226kg x 3
226kg x 3
226kg x 3
226kg x 3
226kg x 3

Hard work...

Front Squats:
120kg x 5
120kg x 5
120kg x 3 - Couldn't get my breath!
120kg x 3
120kg x 1

Log:
67.5kg x 1
87.5kg x 1 x 3
107.5kg x 1 x 5
110kg x 1 x 3

For the first time, I felt as though There is an element of strength coming back. Still lacking the "strength fitness", and the deadlifts were hard work. Have a 6 month goal of a 300kg deadlift, 225kg olympic squat and 150kg C&J - We'll wait and see, they feel like a long long way away!

Aim is to compete in a couple of strongman comps next year, maybe a very low standard olympic weightlifting comp too.

Olympic Lifting Class

Front Squat (heavy singles)
5 x 60kg
5 x 100kg
5 x 120kg
1 x 140kg
2 x 1 x 160kg

I've never gone 'heavy' on a front squat before, usually only do relatively low weight for reps after deadlifts. Feel I had another 10kg in me at least, so a 200kg front squat is an unwritten goal for the next few months.

High Hang Snatch
5 x 1 x bar
5 x 1 x 40kg
5 x 1 x 60kg

Full Snatch
1 x 57.5kg
3 x f x 57.5kg!

Technique! Seem to be able to high hang snatch with no pull than I can a full one. Seems to be a mind thing, I can muscle up 60kg so on a full snatch I end up catching it 6inches lower that standing up. Need to work on it.

Clean & Jerk
5 x 1 x 60kg
5 x 1 x 80kg
3 x 1 x 100kg
3 x 1 x 100kg clean & push press.

Bit tired, wrists hurt, home!

Tuesday 9/12/14

Didn't train Sunday as was ill over the weekend, wasn't feeling great before the gym but decided to sweat it out and give it a go. No point sitting around feeling sorry for yourself, but decided to keep the session short.

Deadlifts, straps, no belt.
110kg x 5
150kg x 5
180kg x 3
210kg x 3
230kg x 2
230kg x 2
230kg x 2
230kg x 2
230kg x 2
Was going to stop there, but felt good, so did another one.
230kg x 2

Log Press:
67.5kg x 1 x 2
77.5kg x 1 x 2
87.5kg x 1
97.5kg x 1
107.5kg x 1
117.5kg x 1 - PB (only ever done log press once before!)
Again, was planning on leaving it there, but fancied rounding the log into the 120's
121.5kg x 1 (questionable lockout).

At this point, the weight on my chest wasn't helping the cough, so left it there.

Sunday 14/12/2015

Had Thursday off as I was ill again.

Sunday myself and my training partner decided to have a mainly events based session for a change.

Squat - Olympic Style, No wraps, no belt
60kg x 5
100kg x 5
140kg x 3 x 2
160kg x 3
180kg x 2
180kg x 2
180kg x 2
180kg x 2
180kg x 2

Farmers Walk - 15-20m (not sure exactly) - 2nd time ever doing this
(Weights on implement only, not including handle weights)
20kg x 2
40kg x 2
80kg x 2
90kg x 3

Yolk - My first ever go at this! (15-20m ish)
(weights added only)
40kg (100kg?) x 2
80kg (120kg?)x 2
180kg (220kg?)x 4

Assume that the yolk is 40kg or so, I was told that is was 80kg - but not convinced!

Went home feeling properly knackered... relatively happy all in all.
