got confused by the workout email – actually wasn’t supposed to do anything this day, but went in to practice anyway, so just warmed up, did some strides and hurdle drills.
Testing Day #2
30m fly (gate timed)
on the 30 year on piece of “track” nearby:
1RM Snatch: 185 lbs
1RM Clean & Jerk: 245 lbs
1RM half squat: 495 lbs
So the 30 fly was a bit slower than my PR (2.91), but it’s still very early in the season, non-ideal conditions, and I wasn’t really feeling that great in warm ups. Also we’ve basically done no power work at all so far, so I’m confident that those factors will make up for the difference. Lifting throughout was about on par for where I was at the end of last season and what I typically see in the fall, so I’m happy with that, because we don’t do very much heavy work. Testing will be done every subsequent 6 weeks that I know of, and this next cycle will be a power one, including hurdle work, so I’m excited about that, and to not be losing every workout to these damn 400 runners. Oh also might have a 13.8 110 guy coming in to join our training group, so hoping that goes through. I have practice off until wednesday, so I have to be diligent about actually keeping active, because I have a tendency to take off days completely off, which leaves me in a bad spot when I come back.
