I had a nice day yesterday and managed to snatch 153kg for a PR and Clean & Jerk 190kg for a PR. That was a PR total as well at 343kg. It is a good step in the right direction. I am hoping to hit 155/195 in the coming days here as I am about 10 days out from Nationals that take place in Columbus, Ohio (Arnold Classic). Just have to stay healthy and keep pushing it!
Pat Mendes and I took a trip to California to see Kelly Starett (he runs mobilitywod.com). He is very well respected and did a tremendous job. We also got some great training in at California Strength & also the Eleiko Academy. Got to train with Donny Shankle, Jon North, Spencer Moorman, and Kevin Cornell at CAl Strength and also with Ian Wilson and Hysen Polaku at Eleiko. Of course, I got to see the greatest weightlifting coach of all time in Ivan Abadjiev as well. That was pretty cool. I managed to set a 5kg PR clean with 195kg on wednesday, and, followed it up with a 190kg clean on friday. I got some really good training in up there, and, got back early sunday. I was able to follow that up with a great day on monday.
I appreciate everyone following me on the journey. This is just the beginning, but I Am ready for the challenges ahead!
