Week 8 – Day 3

Jerk 16kg @20rpm 2min sets x6
Jerk 14kg @18rpm 9min set

Deadlifts 70kg 3×8
Pushups 3×15
GS squats 40kg 45/50
Swings 24kg 75L/50R

Bar hang 40sec
Handstand 40sec
Ab wheel 20

Jerk intervals were good.. First few sets i was a bit tense but managed to relax for the last 3.. I could have gone at 22rpm.
I dropped the weight on my deadlift to see if I could improve my form.. Still not perfect.  My partner wants to get some oly lifting coaching so i am hoping to tap into that and get some help with my deadlift technique too.
Tried on a pair of old work pants last night..they were tight around the waist and booty šŸ˜¦ Thinking maybe i should clean my wardrobe out.. Getting stong and getting skinny are two opposing goals.. And i am struggling a bit with that. I am smashing all my pbs every week so there is no doubt i am improving.. But yeah… Can’t have everything.

    Conflicting goals! OMG yes, the conundrum… If only there was a way to get the numbers and get super lean and hot at the same time…!

    nice work Deb!
    Dropping DL is fine, I prefer to stand up between reps but safety first. Less chance of injury if you drop and reset.

    Getting strong will help you more in life than looking hot. and forget eating a calorie restricted diet to drop weight and be “healthy”. Skinny gives the impression of health because of accepted images put in medias.

      I agree coach.. I much prefer to be strong but those stupid stereotypes i have grown up with are sometimes hard to shake off! Am working on it though šŸ™‚
