As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I went in to today’s testing day with a clear head. No temper tantrums for me today. I had just PR’d my clean early this week so I didn’t have many expectations for Friday and was going to be happy just making it to 120# for my clean and jerk. (Which is my current personal best). Today’s focus was really form.
I made the playlist for the workout today because our resident music playlist guy couldn’t make it today. The group decided on boy bands…since the workout was clean and jerks!
I built up to work on my form, did a rep scheme similar to Monday’s rep scheme:
- 75# x 5
- 95# x 5
- 105# x 3
And then I started going in increments of weight doing one rep.
If you’re following closely, I PR’d at 125# and then at 130#! I was so happy about it because I wasn’t expecting it. I just wanted to work on my form today and just went for it. I did two attempts at 135#, but failed on the clean. I ALMOST had the first attempt at the clean, but I was leaning way too far forward and dropped the weight.
But I’ll take it. I’m happy! Here is some video proof!
Here’s the first PR at 125#
Here’s my PR at 130#!
Here’s me failing at 135#. See how far forward I am at the squat?
