Weightlifting Friday: BIG CREW!

Currently undergoing Chemotherapy to treat Systemic Ulcerative Colitis as a last measure.


Weightlifting December 19 2014 from Clint Darden on Vimeo.

FINALLY back to the gym. I hadn't trained since Sunday and I can't say that I was really FIRED UP to train on Friday. The extra rest does me a lot of good but the change in weather makes it so easy to stay on the couch.

As I was packing my car to head out the door, my old training partner and coach Charis Louca sent me a test message that he was on his way to train! He is in Cyprus for Christmas (and his birthday next week) from England and wanted to meet at The House of Biceps!

He finished some crazy squats and strict presses before I even did my first set of snatch. I didn't do anything amazing but learned A TON! A lot of stuff that I can put into practice in the future.

Went on to cleans and again didn't use much weight but went without my hookgrip. I can't lift as much this way but I am learning a smoother bar pattern and it is much easier on my elbows. A lot of fun stuff to work on and I may get motivated to at least warm up on snatch and clean 2-3x per week now.

Finished off with squats...
235 kg x 3

I think I will squat over 600 lbs soon.
