    Lionheart: my triceps have started to limit all of my pressing. Mainly because I've got a limited range of exercises that don't aggrevate my elbows.

    PV: I was thinking that I'd get a few more reps at that weight, but doing them TUT style they fried me quickly.

    Adam: I'm liking those chinups, pity my pullups are about 20kg off that.

    This evening sucked for some reason.

    Sounds like you've found something to do while unloading the bar after deadlifts (i HATE that part of deadlifts).

    ^^ Thanks Jono!

    Lifted this afternoon and I have decided that I'll drop the C&J. Basically my form has been shit these past few weeks. It is causing issues with my elbows and wrists and requires a reset. I don't know how it came about, pretty much since I did my last over-reach and strained my wrist. On the other hand my snatches are pretty solid.

    Well that still doesn't explain my crap form.


    PV: Thanks dude. I'm liking how good the squats are going. I needed to keep the session short so I added in that last continuous rep set so that I didn't have to do another 5 sets. But have to say that the continuous rep set is not good for my knee, the "breathing" or paused reps I do are much better.

    Great log man! Nice videos and nice training style.
    I hurt myself doing snatch jerks (rotator cuff) about 2 weeks ago and it fucked up with all my training, so now I'm only doing deadlift stuffs and leg presses.

    Will keep reading your log


    Long, long wait...

    Well, I'm not sure what's wrong with your form but if you're sitting down a lot then your body might be making some small adjustments which, in turn, could affect your form. I mean, it could just be strait up bad form/motor patterns but it could be the sitting. I don't really follow anyones logs but what's wrong with your form?

    ^^ Basically in the clean I'm not getting under the second pull correctly and racking it cleanly on the shoulder. Basically once the weight gets a bit heavy I stop pulling myself under the bar enough and end up leant forward a bit and catching the bar in the hand as much as on the shoulder. This then sets me up for a poor jerk. The jerk is usually ok, but once again I don't get under it enough.

    I'm not sure if I'm partly protecting myself from going too low (ironic considering the power style lift) or if I'm not getting a good hip pull on the bar. I place it mainly down to the lack of getting under the bar. In snatches this is less of an issue as I do tend to get a good hip pull. If you check the video you'll see that I finish in a power stance, not a full squat for the the snatch. But I did get a good hip pull on the bar and get under it nicely.

    Guess I'm unsure as to whether to go to a full squat style or just work on the power style and pulling myself under the bar properly......

    Oh and I agree that my sitting down a lot of the day doesn't help. Hammys have been quite tight of late, in part due to the injury, in part because of the extra training to get them right, in part because they do nothing else.

    Zigurd: Hope that the C&J works for you. Trick is to practice the technique a lot before bothering adding weight to the bar. Good way to practice is to use the C&J as a warm-up for deadlifts, or use it to shoulder the bar for shoulder presses.

    Roberthino: Good to see someone else doing weightlifting stuff! I've found that the snatch jerks can be a bit dangerous, that is why I don't do the heavier stuff for more than 1 or 2 reps. I've seen guys bust out 5 rep sets but I just see issues with control of the bar.

    TJ: Always a pleasure dude. What did you think of my snatches?
