Max Friday: Snatch, Cleans, SQUAT PRs!
Currently undergoing Chemotherapy to treat Systemic Ulcerative Colitis as a last measure.
Training November 14 2014 from Clint Darden on Vimeo.
I had a long, bad, tired day and my wife had one about 6 times worse than mine. We got to the gym and Angelos came as well so we just started. It didn't take long before my wife just decided she had no business doing snatch or cleans and moved straight to squats to hit a rep PR and get home.
8th Rep With 80 KG
1 pull, 1 snatch
I missed 90/198 terribly. I have no snap or speed at all in my body.
Clean and Jerks
I stumbled several times with 60/132 and 70/154 and realized that it wasn't the smartest thing for me to be doing.
Angelos is changing his training up a lot and it looks GREAT! He even switched his stance on jerks, putting his left foot forward to protect his injured left shoulder and he STILL freaking jumps like Superman! Seriously..watch the video, he gets better when he adds weight.
My wife left, Angelos left, I sat for another 30 minutes resting and trying to catch my breath and downed another pre-workout shake that is HOT!!!!
The drink was great and I love the hot fire spice in it...but seeing my hair cut falling out on camera wasn't the highlight of my day.

215 x 1
235 x 1
255 / 562 x 1...PR
I called my wife to make sure it was OK for me to keep going in the gym as I wanted to do the Dbell and Friday night is Chemo night. I wanted to get something out of the way before I felt like crap for the next 5-6 days. She gave the go ahead.
66 x 2
88 x 1
110 x 1
130 x 1
141 x 1...PR
150 x 2 misses
88 x 3
Much to work on but I think 160 will go up before Christmas. My hands are bruising a lot doing the dbell which leaves them pretty painful for a couple of days but I think that they will toughen up or I'll back off smartly.
Another Week Down,
