  1. Agree 100% with Rolo. I would just approach it this way: don't worry about the percentage, worry about wether or not your competition lift improves as a result of doing more quad work.
  2. For Oly lifters, your front squat should be around 85% of your back squat. Mine is like 90% because I'm all quads. For PLers? Fuck if I know. I would just look at the numbers and make sure it's not something too out of wack.

    Goa. We have family there on my wife's side. Not a visit for pleasure, unfortunately.

    Took a few days off because of costochondritis. I'm not sure if I've been overdoing it on the Oly lifting, or if eating shitty has increased inflammation... Maybe a combination of factors. I started using turmeric again to see if that'll help. I'll be heading out to India for a week on Wednesday. I'm not planning on exercising, but I might do some pushups and bw squats or something.
  5. Lifting is a great way to get the frustrations out.

    A. Oly Squat Warmup 95x8@8 B. Overhead Press Warmup 63x6@8.5 C. Halt Snatch Warmup 60x3 65x3 67x3 60x0 I probably shouldn't have gone up to 67x3 on these. Felt pretty drained. I also noticed that I'm letting the bar loop out a bit more than I'd like; even though I made all of my lifts, I want to maintain good quality. I tried backing off to 60 to work on it, but it just wasn't happening. D. Clean and Jerk Did some light shit with long pauses at the knees, power position, and jerk catch position. I was planning on fasting today, but based on how I felt after my workout I decided that it wasn't a good idea.
  7. Another thing that sometimes helps me is to pick something to focus on. Maybe just one lift. Get in, do that lift, get out. After you've gotten into the habit of doing that lift, start adding in another one. Continue until you have a full routine going.
  8. Regarding #4, sometimes the opposite can be true for me. Just going in and doing whatever I want for a while can be really nice sometimes.
  9. I would like to know more about the tongue thing. What does this do? I've been to Ann Arbor. I didn't get to spend much time there, but it seemed pretty awesome.
  10. I enjoy attacking tight areas.

    Early Ass Morning A1. Oly Squat, controlled tempo Warmup 90/5@8 I didn't pay attention to the tempo... I just kept the eccentric slow enough to evenly distribute weight on each leg. A2. Overhead Press from Rack Warmup 65/5@8.5 B. Hang Muscle Snatch + Overhead Squat Warmup 55/3+3 60/3+3 60 might have been a little heavy for HMS right now, but everything felt pretty good. I focused on keeping my flat back and locking in my rib cage during the OHSq - pretty good for the most part. C. BTN Jerk from Rack Warmup 60/3/3s 65/3 70/3 I switched back to splitting with my right leg back. The weight felt pretty easy, and my form was actually really good. Focusing on loading up my rear leg seems to be the key... It's tempting to want to lunge when split jerking, but that throws the weight forward. D. Eccentric Calf Raise on plate (both calves up, right calf down with slow tempo) A bunch On the last rep I lowered my heel until it touched the ground, then stayed in the stretch for a minute. E. Band Row + External Rotation + Overhead Press Yellow/a bunch
  12. You can get a shit ton of good results from just doing body weight stuff. I used to do a circuit of pistols (limited ROM), pushups, and chinups. I just set my timer for 15 minutes and tried to get as many total reps as possible.

    Morning A. Power Position Hang Snatch Worked up to 55/3 Notes: Missed 55 forward twice. I was putting too much pressure on the ball of my foot. Centering it fixed that. B. Power Position Hang Clean + Pause Split Jerk Worked up to 65/1+2 Notes: My split jerk is still hot garbage. I think I need to just do a ton of reps with the bar. Evening A. Oly Squat, 3-0-X-0ish tempo Warmup 80x5 85x5@8? Notes: I kept it slow enough to be able to maintain even pressure over both feet. B. Overhead Press Warmup 60x1 62.5x5@8 C. Band Row + External Rotation + Press Yellow/a bunch Notes: Worked my way away from and back to the door. D. Standing Band Curl Yellow/a bunch Notes: Same deal as above. Band was at chest height. I need a heavier band for these, and should use a slower tempo. E. Band Overhead Stretch Worked on letting the band pull my arms back behind me over head while maintaining a locked down rib cage.
  14. The weather is one of the many magical things about Cali. I don't think the weather is bad here, but I'm probably just used to it. I've lived in the South all my life. The worst is summer. My only other gripe is that I wish we got more fall and spring.
