Coach: "More upright in the start position, keep the bar close, get tall, FINISH THE PULL!"

Me: *Forgets everything coach just said*.

Coach: πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

It was all going so well till I turned the camera on.

Assault bike = Devil's work. 😈

10 second max effort and 1min recovery, 10 sets.

I start to hate coach for programming this around set 5/6. 😷
1st (bit lazy with the effort 😬) ,6th and 10set of super ugly conditioning, where my face has gone from healthy glow to lobster red. #preseasonhurts

High bar, why you kill me? #rpenandos #birthdaysquats ➑️➑️➑️
Final week of wave loading before a much needed deload week!
Wave 1-- 5: 115, 3: 125, 1: 135
Wave 2-- 5: 125 (vid 1) 3: 135 (vid 2) 1: 142.5 #fail.(vid 3)
.
.
I almost saw the light on the last rep of 3's at 135, so there wasn't much left in the tank to get past my sticking point for my final set and a pb attempt (@mscinjuryclinic , my back is in pieces πŸ˜…)
.
However, I'm super happy with the progress of my high bar squats, with lots of tekkers to work on over the coming weeks!

Yesterday's 6,4,2,6,4,2 wave loading high bar squats, with a final set of 135kg (shown) at bodyweight- getting ready for winter hibernation.

Massive breakdown in form as the fatigue set in, but I'll take this high bar PB, 5kg off my all time low bar 1rm.

Lovely evening at @thequarterworkshop learning how to make a silver ring from scratch. (Thank you Lana πŸ€—) Shaping the silver, sawing the excess off (trying to avoid your fingers!) Soldering it together, pickling πŸ˜‚ filing, hammering then a final polish.

There are a few different workshops here, so if you're feeling crafty, definitely get in touch!

Snatch doubles from today. Getting less ninja and more aggro, but being too keen to get under the bar, they're not the smoothest or prettiest lifts. #sorrycoach

Regardless, I'm really enjoying my weightlifting focused programme. Tough sport, lots to learn, but rewarding when it all fits together.

When your T-Rex arms cause you to press the bar back too far and crush your windpipe. Started seeing stars πŸ˜΅πŸ˜°πŸ˜‚ #fail

I loathe front squats. But I did manage to finish my set after a wobbly start. I just had to cautiously unrack the bar so I could still breathe πŸ˜‚

New program. Much volume. Much hurt.

Wave loading on high bar squats after lots of split jerks from the blocks.
8,6,4,8,6,4 working to a final set of 127.5kg.

So long legs.#riplegs

Thanks to @jordan.harriss for the spot and demonstration of how I twerk the weight back up when I lose positioning.

Does anyone else ever feel a little light headed after the clean? 😡

Clean and Jerk singles at 80% of yesterday's max, followed by snatch pulls, RDL's and yucky conditioning on the horrid assault bike, that makes me question whether or not I actually like my coach @mscperformance πŸ€” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
