March 29- April1 training ,looking good but can be better.

Apr 10, 2014

 

The workouts are dwindling and the time for learning is done so this week I must make decisions for the upcoming meets, Worlds foremost.

This week I got my new Super Centurion and I would try it out for my first workout. It felt snug in the hips and I liked it without knee wraps but when I hit 500 I had good speed but knew I did better with my regular Centurion so I decided it still needed some tweaks and sent it back for alterations. After spending ½ hour warming up and trying the Super on I reverted back to the other suit and finished my workout slightly taxed but was pleased with my 585 for 2. I am now cutting sets/reps to save energy and help recovery for the more important movement ,the bench.

After last week’s 2 board workout I start focusing on Full reps and boy did I. 4 total sets of singles with the form going from ugly to not bad and the weight was going up each set. I did on the 4th set switch shirts and 32 minutes,no warmup sets and an ugly handoff I nailed a 560. I liked the idea of throwing on a different shirt and not setting it to hit a big single. Were all the singles competition good? No. My 3rd set did look like I paused it and went up smooth.( My opinion the best of the sets.)

Well Aprils day deads and yes it was a joke…The deads you ask? I know you never would ask but anyways. I tried the squat suit backwards (yes backwards)and it  actually went pretty well, for myself. Straps up and I did decent. I won’t hit any prs but as long as I consistent every meet I will be fine.

 

Here is the video for the week.

570 “                                      “- faster lil out of control too little slack

580 “                                      “ – looks the best fixed the slack issue

560 changed shirts and hit it considered some of the obstacles
