Olympic Weightlifting

Thursday, November 10, 2016

I tried to coach the workout for Donna and Fabby

11:30 AM

Warm Up

Air squats, pass throughs, Sampson stretches, hip bends

Snatch Pull


I used 65#, 95#, 115# and 135#

Even at 2 reps, 135# was too heavy

Push Jerk

Started with some smashing to improve the front rack position


I used 75#, 95# and 115#

This felt pretty good.  At 115#, I had a few reps with questionable torso position

Turkish Get-ups

I had a couple of attempts.  One with the short bar (27#) and one with the Olympic bar (45#).  The Olympic Bar was rough and I had trouble just starting the motion.

Snatch Balance


I used 45# on the first set and 65# on the subsequent sets.  I had a tendency to either throw the bar far back behind me or splay my legs really far on the drop.
