Overall it was a very good week. I finished up with the PCC the past weekend. As mentioned last week I hit my best ever full human flag which is pictured below. With a little more work on this (as I haven’t been training it at all) I should have a fairly solid hold.
I was hoping for a PR in the front lever but my abs were fairly toast by that point. There were a couple 88 lb. kettlebells on hand and I thought about snatching them. I wasn’t able to pull the double snatch off, but I did do heaviest kettlebell juggle I’d ever tried before with a pair of 88’s.
When I returned home I got right back to my typical training after two much needed days of rest.
Here is a Jefferson deadlift for 10 reps with 405. I used some of the hypnosis and visualization tactics I’ve been talking about recently.
I’d been talking to Bud about one of his Outlaw Challenges that I’ll end up doing sooner or later. It involves a 150 lb dumbbell snatch, followed by 1000 kettlebell swings, and then doing the snatch again with each arm.
I’ve never really worked much on the dumbbell snatch so I decided to see where I was at. I pulled off 120 with my right arm. (Only got 110 with my left). I’ll probably throw some work on this in every once in awhile. I can only imagine working with heavier weights would help with the Beast Snatch Test.
And as mentioned previously my ab wheel rollout is closing in on the full standing version. The next video shows what I call Level 1 (i.e. the lowest level on my power rack) for 3 reps. Yes, I know the form isn’t pretty. But I find as I push this “sloppier form” upwards I can follow in short, with a tightened up technique.
Over the next week I expect some big PR’s.
