When overhead with bodyweight-loaded bar first time since wrist sprain. Felt pretty decent. Plan is to try max effort singles sometime in early April, which I think will be good.Coach is competing in US National Masters Championship this weekend, he should take first in his class easily; currently he is only a few kg behind the world records for his class, so it would be sweet to see him take a couple of those also.My body is an enigma. Back when I was doing general...
So weak.... between wrist sprain and too much work preventing frequent gym time the past two months, 70% lifts never felt more difficult.
Damn.... No wraps, no suit. Not even using squat shoes. Just a belt. And apparently he "only" did 905 because they didn't have enough plates to put on more weight. (http://70sbig.com/blog/2013/02/meet-the-man-who-squats-905-raw/)
The way I look at it, by definition, a 1RM is the weight at which your muscles are no longer able to produce the necessary force -- and therefore form -- to execute a movement. For me, if I feel the form suffering too much where I might hurt myself, I bail on the rep. If it feels a little off but not uncomfortable or not producing excessive strain, I'll push through. It depends on how well you know your body and how much stress to which you're willing to subject yourself....
Lucky. Most Oly comps give you 1-2 hours between weigh-in and session time. Not enough time to fully digest one meal, let alone several.
3 eggs, 1/4 pound cured pork of some kind, fruit (apple/peach/berries), toasts, orange juice, Greek yogurt with granola, and then some baked goods, perhaps cookies or donuts. Every day. Although on weekends I may sub out the Greek yogurt for a triple stack of pancakes or french toast smothered in butter and syrup.
Since spraining my wrist, workouts have just been two squat sessions per week, because I can't really do much else. Aside from strength, going heavy each time with plenty of recovery is doing wonders for flexibility and form-- deeper, faster, more stable. Going to try empty bar snatches and C&J next week sometime and see how the wrist holds up. Would be nice to do competition in April, but that may be rather ambitious.Back when I was single, the #1 goal on my Fuck-it List...
I find that girls really like goblet squats. I'll leave it at that.
Even if the two Oly lifts alone don't make one stronger, any good Oly lifter does other movements for strength as well.Such as casual 4x bodyweight back squat doubles.....
What sort of doctor/specialist would I want to see for a wrist injury? Something got f-ed up during a 102kg snatch, and now lateral rotation (like waving goodbye just moving the wrist) produces incredibly intense pain. It's my right hand, ulnar side. I don't know if a GP will be able to do anything other than refer me to a specialist anyway. Got it splinted up for the time being. FWIW I finished the 102kg lift, even though I felt the pain (and heard a little click) during...
