Snatch: 5 sets of 2 reps @ 80% of 1RM
- I did a few warm ups at lower weights (22, 27, 30) and then my 5 sets of 2 at 35 lbs. This movement really feels natural and normal again. I paid close attention to my legs when I was standing up the lifts and there was no Dance Party USA today. :) No videos today as I was in a hurry to get home for a work phone call.
Front Squat: 3 sets of 5 reps @ 75% of FS1RM
- Since there is a lack of girl's bars I had to squat with a guy's. Not that that's a big deal, but I forgot initially when I was calculating my weights so I really was lifting heavier than I thought. :) I should probably do that every day. I warmed up with low weights again (40, 50) and then I did 2 sets at 60 lbs and 1 set at 65 lbs.
- I don't know if I was tight or what, but these didn't feel so great. I stretched some in the middle and the last set was not that bad.
RDLs: 4 sets of 8 reps at 60% of CJ1RM
- Easy. I did 40 lbs for these. I'm sure I could have done more but since I'm not quite sure what my 1RM is...I didn't try to push it.
GHD situps: Ran out of time so I had to do regular ones at home.
I went to the Hawk's home opener last night and it was amazing. I missed hockey so much. There was such a buzz of excitement in the air. There's just something about being a hockey game that other sports can't replicate. Don't get me wrong either - I love going to any sporting event, but hockey is something totally different. So glad it's back!! :)
Things got a little tense at the end, but Crawford was a stud and now we're 3 - 0!! Yay!! :)
