Back In Action And Then Off To California...

Was able to train a 58kg female weightlifter Tuesday night. I'll post in depth later on it, but long story short, got her doing a triple on the Power Clean with 7.5kg less than her best competition clean. Used some Z principles of course and some things I've been thinking about as a result. Just food for thought: We've been teaching it all wrong. Again, I'll post in detail on it in the future.

Tuesday night, hit 100kg on the Power Snatch above Knee--easy.

Tonite, Thursday, worked up to 120kg for 2 singles on the Power Clean above knee. Then 120kg on the BSQ for 2 ladders of (1,2,3,4) with 60s rest. Here's the interesting part: more plantar and dorsiflexion after a session with Dr. Cobb last night working on my head--cranial work. There's some other stuff in there too and I'll post on that later. But squats felt much different--forward on my whole foot, lots more power of my toes--that's right, my toes. There's an article in that statement too.

Diet update: fat's dropping, bodyweight going back up. Nice to be eating carbs routinely again. Should help my sleep and my strength.

Off to Cali in 7 hours. Wine Country til Sunday evening then down to the Bay Area and Rif's stomping grounds. Gonna hang out with him next week. This should be a very interesting visit since he's now got the Z bug. Tuesday I'll fly to LA to visit a couple of friends and work out at Gold's Gym in Venice Beach--should be very cool.

Will be posting more from CA.

Can't wait to read those articles you've got in mind. I'm curious...

Have fun in Cali.

Sounds like great stuff and nice trip to CA too. I LOVE wine country. All of CA is great really.

Rock on

Franz, Thanks--I appreciate it. I may take you up on that offer in the near future, however, we'll be staying with Court's family this trip. Haven't seen them in about a year.
