Following along.  I watch Silent Mikes series on learning the Oly lifts.  I lot more technical that they look on TV.

Strongman Saturday

Circus DB (lbs): 60x8/8, 70x5/5, 80x3/3
18Ē DL (lbs): 135x3, 225x3, 315x3, 365x3, 405x3
Farmers walk 30í : 145/hand x2x10

Happy with everything but the DL. The DB was easy and that is the weight for the next contest. Depending on the rules I might get 10. The Farmers were only 5 lbs lighter than the March contest and 10 sets of the 30í up and back. There were only 2 of us so it was like set after set. Barely time to catch your breath. One 50í trip should be OK. The DL sucked...I tweaked my left glute doing those frame DLís a few weeks ago. Every pull was literally a pain in the ass. I have done 505x3 from blocks. Even pulling on 455 hurt like crazy.

45 minute XC ski. Nice snow today. Freezing rain made a nice crust and it was fast snow. Let me go relatively easy and still move quickly.

Back Squat (kg): 60x5, 90x5, 102.5x5, 115x10 (253lbs)
1 Arm BB Snatch (kg): 30,35,40-,35,37 (81lbs)

Happy about the squats.  I was actually able to get them on my traps. Still canít get a great grip there, but at least it WAS there. Was tired and lazy (had a root canal yesterday @ 7:30), so I skipped the Metcon portion and decided to play with one arm BB snatches. I watched an old Britainís Strongest Man and that was actually an event in in it one year so I had been wanting to do it. It is a very difficult lift.....Here is the heaviest one I made.

Clean/Jerk (kg): 52.5x3+1, 60x3+1, 67.5x3+1, 67.5x3+1, 67.5x3+1, 75, 82.5
Bench(kg): 57.5x5, 67.5x5, 77.5x9
Metcon: Bag over bar@50lbs + Wall ball @15lbs
15/10/5

Good workout. That quick Metcon piece was a beyatch. Jerks were good and crisp, no press outs.

Yep.  I'm fairly certain I'd break something if I were to try a one-handed BB snatch.  Maybe break myself too ;D  Way to make it look easy!
