Three In A Row!

Felt great going into tonight's training session. Twelve hour day training clients and less sleep than I needed so I was feeling pretty tired when I arrived at the platform. However, my knees felt better than they ever have at the start of any training session. Very little Z as a warm-up. This can only be due to three things:
  1. Intelligent training
  2. Long, protracted, concentrated, R-Phase drills post-training session
  3. Increased "balance" to my life by increasing spiritual component
I had one bad rep tonight and that was because I lost my focus. I recovered superbly (if I may say so myself) the next rep.

I realized that subconsciously I had been using the following strategy based on neural chunking:

I have been pairing strong points with weak areas and looking for positive carryover.

It's been working!

Although I am feeling very tired from the jetlag and less sleep than I need, my body and mind feel very fresh and focused.

Tonight's session was using the same weights as Monday but with about half the total volume. Here's how it was broken down.

Again, attempting to avoid fatigue by using 5 minute breaks between all sets and a 10 minute break between the snatches and C&J's.

A. (P. Sn, AK + Cl. Sn fr. High Point)/2
50kg/2 x2, 60/2, 70/2, 80/2

Figured out how to pull myself under the bar without my feet externally rotating: Shoulder top circles in external rotation, wrist and finger flexion. Cool.

B. (P. Cl, AK + Classic Cl. fr. High Point + P. Jk)/2
70kg/2, 80/2, 90/2, 100/2

Left with knees and everything feeling great. Looking forward to the rest of the week. I'm also looking forward to learning more about the lifts and how to use my body to maximize the technique and load.

Nice job Geoff!

I assume you are doing some Z in your rest periods also? What drills have you found to be effective?

Keep on rockin'

Lots of shoulder circles in various degrees of flexion and external rotation worked great.
