60 Day Lifting Challenge – Week 9 Day 1

I’m doing the 60 Day Lifting Challenge from Columbus Weightlifting. Alex came over and lifted at 5 with me.


  • Crossover Symmetry Activation
  • 15# Clean & Jerk Positions
  • 45# Clean & Jerk Positions

Clean & Jerk

  • 2×95#
  • 2×135#
  • 2×155#
  • 1×185#
  • 1×210#
  • 1×230#
  • 1×240#
  • 1×250#
  • 4xFx260#

I felt well rested and the cleans were easy on the way up. I let 250# control me a bit, but still wasn’t really an issue. I gave up on the first attempt early and then after the pretzel bail out, my head was completely out of it. Got damn mental! I am getting the bar plenty high enough in my cleans. Frustrating!

Power Snatch

  • 2×95#
  • 2×115#
  • 2×135#
  • 2×145#
  • 2×155#
  • 2×165#

I focused on slow off the floor again and tried to keep my arms strong until hitting the power position because I usually have an early arm bend. Felt weird but pretty powerful! Here is the double at 165#.

Back Squat

  • 5×135#
  • 5×185#
  • 5×205#
  • 5×225#

Just a little work to get the blood flowing.


4 Rounds

  • 20s Burpees
  • 10s Rest

Monday has been my Tabata burpees day, but I quit after 4 rounds of 8 today. Couldn’t stop thinking about the clean. I might rest tomorrow so that I can go for the snatch PR on Wednesday instead of Thursday.
