Back at it: Squats

August 20, 2017
Before Supper

Been back working the last two weeks away from home which has screwed up all of my training. This is my first "weights" day since the second. Start 'er off nice and slow again.

Threw at the AGM yesterday. No training definitely hurts technique, strength, etc. Everything really sucked although I think I might've PR'd my open stone with over 30' with a 16.4# stone.

1a - SSB 15" Box Squat WU to 265 x 6 x 5r
1b - Chins (238.2) x 3 x 3/4/5r

2a - Sissy Squat (TDS Mach.) x 3 x 10r
2b - 45' Hyper x 3 x 10r

Throws and Stick

Haven't been feeling the greatest for the past bit and went back to work last week which entailed daily traveling. It's been a week and a half since I've done anything and the AGM Backyard Throw is this coming Saturday so I'd better get at it.

Saturday Aug 12, 2017
Jim and Tony drove down from the city and we threw at the school by my house.

12.5# Hammer x 4 or so throws
22# Hammer 4 throws
16# BD Hammer 4 throws
16# MD Hammer 6-7 throws. Got a foot PR as well. I need lots of practice to stay consistent.

42 WFD 4-5 throws. Suckage. A good 10' short of where I should be. Practicing 2 spin has gimped my 1 spin technique and I'm no good at 2 spin yet either.

28 WFD 5-7 throws. Same as the 42.

David suggested I try Matt Vincent's 1 spin technique (about 1.25 spins).

12.5# Braemer throws. About 5

12.5# Shuffle/glide. About 7-8

Some work with my new caber. Finished sanding it and measured and weighed it. 17' 6.5" and 53#. Good for training.

Picks and walks (100' or so) x 4
Picks and turns x 4
Pick, 5 step, ground, re-pop, 5 step, etc. x 5

Pressing Stuff

August 2, 2017
Before Supper

Did some high rep hammer winds with the hammer last night and tonight as I cooked supper. Plan on spending a couple hours tomorrow devoted to just futzing with the caber.

BB PP WU to 150 x 5, 170 x 3, 190 x
Worked on attempting overhead squats

BB Strict Press 150 x 3 x 8r

Power Snatch WU to 135 x 4 x 2r
Too many pressouts but overall happy since this is my first crack at these in years. I had a few snatch grip high pulls at the end when I stopped completing the lift.
