Saturday 6th September - Western Districts Weightlifting Championships @ Crossfit Glasgow

My bodyweight has been up a bit coming into this due to various things going on over the summer so decided to compete heavy and slowly reduce it up until the Scottish which is in 8 weeks time. Plan was to make another good step towards British qualification at 85kg so was hoping for a 240 total possible split 108/132.

During the warmup, snatches felt good so decided to take bigger jumps between each lift but still keep opener at 100kg.

Snatch :
  • 1st Attempt - 100kg - Good lift
  • 2nd Attempt - 106kg Good lift (1kg comp snatch PB)
  • 3rd Attempt - 110kg - No lift (was too tense on it I think)


Thought I had lost a bit of upper back tightness on the 106kg so tried really hard to keep it on the 110kg. Ended up being too tense with the upper body on it and not pulling correctly.

Again, feeling good warming up for clean and jerk. Had planned to open on 125 but increased it a kilo as there was someone out on 125 to give me more time.

Clean and Jerk :
  • 1st Attempt - 126kg - Good lift
  • 2nd Attempt - 131kg Good lift (equal comp cj PB + 1kg total PB)
  • 3rd Attempt - 135kg - Good lift (4kg comp cj PB + 6kg total PB)


Ended up way forward on the clean but still managed to stand up easy enough and got a good jerk on it. 131kg was much better and felt really light on the shoulders. Good jerk. 135kg cleaned well and just sent the jerk forward slightly, managed to hang on it. It could have went either way but ended up getting 2 whites so happy to get the benefit of the doubt with that!

Comments :Overall pretty happy with that performance. Coming in to this I had just snatched 107.5kg for a no straps PB and was getting above 130 clean and jerk. Feeling good to make those sorts of numbers minimums and start to creep up the heavier stuff!

Lovely mate. Great lifting. 90kg? Massive.

Start considering all "walkabout" reps as technical failings in training and you will be steadier. When you have another 30kg on there you will probably fail these reps you stroll around with.

Thanks Smallsy! Yeah weighed in at 90.12kg, meant to mention that.

I do generally consider technical failings. Sometimes I let it slide on a 'max out' Saturday though.
