Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

4.15.2010

Have been travelling and didn't get a chance to post last Thursday's training.

WU: DROM, dynamic stretching, pushups, dive-bombers, partner wallball, jump rope

Clean
84% (?) x 2 x 4
245#

Snatch Balance
Was supposed to be something like 80% x 3 x 2, x% x 2 x 2
But my left elbow was still messed up and hurt after one set of
190# x 3 x 1

So added one set of 135# x 3 x 1 heaving snatch balance, but that hurt too so just moved on.

Push Press
225# x 3 x 5
I don't recall the percentages, and I think it was 5 sets, but may have been 4.

Front Squat Ladder
Using ~75% of 1RM, do one front squat the first minute, two the second, etc. up to 10 if possible. You can rest the bar in the rack if needed mid-minute, you can rack the bar between rounds as well.

I used 255#

I did 1-2-3-4-5-5 (fail, should have gotten 6)

I tried to game the round of 6 and do 2-2-2, but I didn't leave myself enough time at the end of the minute. Dumb. I never try to game these things, I don't know why I did on this day.

WU:
2 min jump rope, DROM, dynamic stretching
5-7-9, 3 rounds not for time
inchworm walk out to a pushup
pullups
pvc ohs

I didn't really push the back squats, was more worried about form/setup.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

Too many variables to accurately say how long it will take, I guess. My goal would be 5 years or so, since then I'll be 35 and will probably have my best shot considering the balance of training time and getting too old. I tried to choose something achievable, but not ridiculous. Maybe I'm awesome and it will take me 1-2 years. Maybe I will plateau at 120/140 forever. I don't know.

From my reading of 35+ master's results, it's a reasonable goal as long as I stick with it, though.

Right now my lifts are something like
fs: 325-335
hbbs: unknown, working off about 400.
snatch: 235, maybe more if my elbow wasn't ****ed right now and I could try
clean: unknown, working off of 300 or so
deadlift: 495-515 or something, maybe
press: 200
jerk: lags my clean still, probably something like 265 or so. My push press is probably around here or even higher. Lame.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

Also an interesting note that I thought I'd throw in here. A more experienced oly guy that I was talking to said a general metric for oly lifters is that you hope to be able to clean what you can front squat for a triple.

This probably implies way better mechanics than I have, though. Probably varies widely too - I know some people can clean same/almost more than their max FS, whereas some aren't even close, etc.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

Yes, that is a standard metric, except I think you have the relationship backwards. To stand up with any weight you can clean, you should be able to triple it in the FS.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

busto, back away from the computer and stand up. hold your arms in the position you would if you were pressing. jump. as you re jumping, extend your arms and keep them there.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

i can see how that works with cattleballs but not as much with barbells. if i remember from your videos all your kb presses start at the same point as the clean rack position right?

i'm going to invent a new exercise where you only use your arms to lower the weight once you've jumped it to it's highest point from the rack. high pushes or something.

Why the jerk bump to 30 pounds above your pr?

I really wish my gym had jerk blocks, would make everything so much easier.

I wanted to work 10lbs above a weight I think I could get and just work on the different feeling of the heavier weight. In my C+Js, I came very close to getting the 275# jerk, and I'm counting it as my training PR c+j, caveat being that I would have gotten 1/3 or 2/3 white lights at a comp. The first 285# F jerk I maybe had a shot at, but missed, and each one I was progressively more beat, and the last ones only came a few inches off my shoulders.

Yeah jerk blocks. We have just had them for a short time now, but they save your shoulders and let you work heavy like this.

Got a chiropractic adjustment (back and neck) and some massage/ultrasound on my elbow before oly. Not sure how effective this will be, but my elbow has not felt better over two weeks. I think I strained a tendon in my elbow. Hopefully just takes another couple of weeks to heal.

WU:
2 min jump rope
DROM, Dynamic stretching
10 (clean) deadlift, 10 hang power clean, 10 OHS complex
1 round with 45lb bar, 1 round with 95lbs (neither for time)

Oly Programming:
Snatch
75%x2x4
175#
Elbow felt ok. This would be the movement that would test it.

Jerk off Blocks
84%x3x2
84%x2x2
235#

Back Squat (HBBS)
90%x2x4
355#
These felt heavy today

Metcon:
tabata mash up
95lb push press alternating with 20" box jump, no rest between rounds (well just the 10 second rest).

My push presses were something like 13/13/13/8/8/10
My box jumps were something like 10/10/8/7/6/8

Last edited by downtown; 04-27-2010 at 11:27 PM. Reason: tabata might have been 5 rounds ea... I really just go to my happy place during metcons and I can't remember what it was.

Re: DT's Olympic Weightlifting, Strength & CF Log

Hello Downtown,

You mentioned including high bar back squats in my log once my shoulder allows. How should I include them? I'm doing a m/w/f split with

m: front squat 3x3
w: deadlift 3x3
f: front squat 3x3

as far as legs go. Should I dump the friday front squats and replace with high bar back squats? Or maybe something else?

I'd also like to throw in some hang cleans somewhere, working up to power cleans once I get the technique down. Any help appreciated.
