RVA Weightlifting had an intra-team meet last weekend. it had been over a year since my last meet and 6 weeks since recovering from goddamn COVID. Training went reasonably well but I still went with super conservative openers. I probably play it too safe on the platform, but I would rather sandbag early than bomb out of a meet. I went 2-for-3 on the Clean and Jerk, missing 105kg at the end. It was a timing problem, not a power problem, which is heartening.
This 80kg snatch is probably a 3-4kg PR. Hell, it’s probably a 2-3kg attempt PR. I have had a hang up on this weight for a couple of years and it looks pretty easy there in the video.
Like I mentioned yesterday, I’ve hopped off of the Weightlifting program to compete at a Strongman contest in June. Assuming I live through that, I should have a brand new base of strength to shoot for another Weightlifting meet (and a PR or two) in the Fall.
