The squats that were missing from the last video hahah
Forgot how much I LOVE warming up with split jerks before a shoulder workout... Did about 5 or 6 sets and ended @ 185lbs for 3 reps! This movement is advanced and would advise you to contact a fitness professional before doing it on your own ☺️ #splitjerk #olympiclifting #athlete
I love a session where I can feel my lifts improve in the drop sets. I edited 30 minutes of film down to a few lifts for insta, and thought of the countless hours that equate to less than 6 minutes at a meet. I have become far more disciplined this year with the blessing of time to train and freedom to control my diet and recovery. It might look a little crazy sometimes to pursue this, as a 35 year old stay-at-home Mom of three. I really don’t know where I would be emotionally at this point in life if it wasn’t for weightlifting. I love every single second of it. There is so much you CAN control, especially when you accept what you cannot. 🏋🏼♀️ I am grateful I found a supportive coach and community of lifters to learn from and how patient they’ve been with me. I stayed away from sports in my youth because I wasn’t given opportunities to try them or was scared of failing. I pray these new examples from Mom give my kids the confidence to risk failure every day, we cannot succeed without it.
Today’s training with the guys @ajerkk @yeecee1
Always grinding. Never satisfied.
Working towards greatness!
Looked after someone’s stuff today at the gym, including a luzozade bottle to highlight my lack of foot movement 😫
Pb hip hang snatch at 45kg and double at 42.5kg though!
Snatch work feeling smooth today. 80% felt like butter 💪💪👍🏋️♂️
Got my ass of the sofa and smashed out my all time fave snatch, sprints and roll out session. Got my snatch up to 52.5kg, but bottled adding any more, 10 minute interval sprints at various inclines and 3 sets of 10 roll outs... including an added standing one (nearly) for my smug husband @circusbear77
who can do a million. (Check my arm shaking...it’s harder than you would ever believe). #hiit #olympiclifting #snatch #sprints #disciplineequalsfreedom #trainforhappiness
I’m guessing the point of one qualifier being released each week is that you do one a week.... nah, we just decided to do all three in one go🤷🏼♀️
Thoroughly enjoyed doing these with @chloesralph
- doing better than we thought we would and pushed ourselves more than we thought we could, so all in all a great 4 hours at the gym😅 (there was a lot of procrastinating)
I don’t know what hurt more. A minute of GTOH, a minute of rowing or a minute of wall balls🤔
Working on a weakness (part of it anyways). Today had some Snatch Grip Highpulls on the menu, but used some straps today 🎗
Now this is the first time I've actually used straps. Typically I never do because it's removing a part of the lift, but it has its pros (which I'm not gonna get into)
Big thing to take away is don't rely on equipment to lift. If you need a belt, or oly shoes or this or that, that's a weakness. I'm guilty with wrist wraps, but I constantly work on my wrist mobility. In my opinion, you should only wear equipment when going for a 1-3RM (if you want), competition, or an issue when you will get hurt without it. If you wear a belt everytime you put weight on your back or pull with straps everytime you deadlift, that isn't good. Try working on what that weakness is and see your lifts 🚀🚀🚀 #crossfitobf #crossfit #olympiclifting #snatch #moveweightmonday
