PR on the OHS

I went to the 6pm Olympic Lifting class again. Did more drilling on the snatch, some snatch balances, a bit of cleaning, and then starting work on the jerk. Good stuff.

The side of my head is still pretty sore, but the top area feels fine. I really wish I could go off the Vicodin today. At least tomorrow I can finally run water on my head!

5×1 OHS

Was looking to set a nice PR today and it was not a disappointment. I did a set of 5 with the 45# bar and then did 95#, 115#, 135#, 145#, 155#, and 165#. My previous PR was 145# so after getting 165 I shut it down. The lift felt pretty good but I didn’t want to get greedy.

  • OH Lunges (35# Plate)
  • Thrusters (40# DBs)

* After each round do 15 AbMat Sit-ups.

I went a little out of my comfort zone by using 40# DBs for the thrusters, but it worked out pretty well. I finished in 16:55.
