Friday Weightlifting: Max Attempts!
Currently undergoing Chemotherapy to treat Systemic Ulcerative Colitis as a last measure.
Training December 5 2014 from Clint Darden on Vimeo.
I had done NOTHING all week that wasn't couch or bed involved. As I sat to eat on Friday before training I almost baked out but I convinced myself just to get excited and I'd feel better once I got there.
Everything still hurts!
85 kg x 1 x 6 sets
70 x 1 pull, 1 hang snatch (I can feel my mistakes
warmed up to 90 kg and it felt terrible. Out in front of me and bouncing down on me. I sat down in my chair and decided that I'd just stop, then I watched the video. The 90 was bouncing because I was pulling it easy and high...VERY HIGH. I needed more weight.
100 felt good but I was shortening my steps
115 x 1 (getting worse)
125 x miss
125 x 1
135 PR Attempt x 5+ misses
Several pulls with 135
70 x 1 pull, 1 hang clean, I can feel my mistakeS
20 kg x several
70 x 3
110 x 2
155 x 1 and I started losing my vision before I did that rep
Racked it and sat in my chair for about an hour gaining my composure and vision.
My wife did some great casual work with her lifts...I think that we are on to something here!
Much To Work On...,
