Back at it after a bit if a rest off my last competiton. Did some higher volume training to ease back into a bit. Here are some chilli lime shrimp I had today. The recipe was from The Paleo Diet cook book.

2013 Ogopogo Weightlifting Competition

I weighed in at 93.6kg pretty good considering at Nationals 3 months prior I was 102.3kg, haha. Anyways, I snatched: 125,129x,129KG. Then Clean & Jerks were: 160x(red lights for elbow touching knee), 160x(jerk was not completely locked. My dip was too shallow), 160kg (I finally remembered how to lift :) Geoff Yee tied me with a 289kg total but he took gold as he was lighter. So positives were I got down to the 94's for the first time in a year and made a total with a PR competition snatch as a 94kg lifter. Negatives...well I wish I would have made my clean and jerks sharper because I think I had at least 165 in me, maybe 170 by the way the 160kg C&J felt on the last attempt. It is amazing how much easier a lift feels when it is in the right position.

2013-08-13 Taper week

Technique felt good today but near the end of my snatch session my shoulders were bugging me a bit. Probably from the  jerks last week. Last week was pretty tough so it will be nice to taper down for the Ogopogo competition in Winfield BC on the weekend.

2013-08-08 training.

I had some Physio treatment on my patella tendons today. Electric pulses then Ultrasound to help with the tendinitis. Apparently the ultrasound encourages tissue regeneration in tendons.  Feels nice. 
Training session is a lighter faster one today in order to prime myself for a heavy hard session tomorrow. Positions, speed, and technique all felt great today.

2013-08-06 Training.

Snatches from hip felt excellent today. I doubled 110kg and it was sharp! At the beginning I was feeling rusty due to having a few days off but I got warmed up and moved really well once that happened. Song of the day was "ugly" by  The Age of Electric. Weight at 95.5kg. Looking forward to eating stuffed peppers for dinner tonight.

2013-08-02 training

Still felt a bit funky from the massage the other day. Usually it feels like my body is one step behind my mind after having a massage. Strength was good, and had no pain anywhere so that was nice. After training I had an awesome beef brisket.
