    Rack jerk:
    20kg x many many many
    40x3x2
    60x3
    70x3
    80x3
    90x2
    96x2
    102x1
    2nd one at 102 choked me out and coach cut me off. Much better than last week at least. For the first time in forever, I was able to rack the barbell from the blocks too, so the elbow must be improving? Who the hell knows.

    Lil L came in today but spent most of the day passed out at her desk and grumbling about the keto transition, full story at 11.


    EDIT: Forgot I also did a bunch of jerk dip pause triples with 120kg and six pullups. Pullups seem to be helping the elbow, go figure.

    Once you're allowed to see L again, how is all of the forced keto-friendly eating going to affect dem summer macroz?

    Easy. Keto means model breath. Who wants to kiss death breath.

    Clean + jerk 2+1
    20x a few
    40x1
    60x1
    70x1
    80x1
    90x1
    96x1
    102x1
    108x1
    80x1x2

    Coach noticed that like with snatches, I don't really hit a sweet power position with the clean either. I've just been getting away with it because of brute force. Lame. Jerks felt all right at least.

    Lil L wants to fire up the grill, which can only end well bbl.

    Snatch:
    20x a few
    40x4
    50x3
    60x2
    70x1
    80x0,1
    You know shit's fucked up when you have trouble at 80.

    90x1
    95x0
    90x1
    94x1
    for 94, coach goes, "Hey good fight at the bottom."
    "Thanks?"
    "That's a eupemism for 'You almost missed!'"

    Time for a nap that I didn't know I needed until sitting down just now.

    40x3
    50x3
    60x2
    70x1
    80x1

    I got too cold on the 90 because some guy went to Jianping Ma's seminar yesterday and was filling me in on all he learned. TL;DR: big pull, straight bar path, get the fuck under and catch it. No mention of s-curve triple extension power position superman catapult etc etc. The guy was fascinated. I'm like HORY SHEET why are we still having this discussion????

    Lil L seems to have pushed through the keto hump but was clearly coming down with something on Saturday and has since been trapped in bed with a sinus infection. "Aaaugh Louisiana is just the best. This DC air is going to give us all cancer."* Didn't stop her for calling me out on my vanity the other day for wearing a sportcoat despite the wet hot air though.

    *Iono, I kind of like it here. Maybe years of SoCal air has acclimated me to bullshit?

    Eh...
    Rack jerk:
    20kg x many
    40x3
    50x3
    60x3
    70x2
    80x2
    90x1
    96x1

    Coach was like, "heh your jerk finally looks like not-garbage."

    Lyudmila came in today looking like hell and grumbling that she fell off the keto wagon because "Hey I'm sick! My body needs carbs right now!" Spent most of the day snoozing and then went home at 4PM to sleep until tomorrow. Adorbz.

    Snatch:
    20kg x3
    40x3
    50x3
    60x2
    70x2 Coach was like, "Sit at the bottom for two seconds. I'll count. Ooooooone.......twooooooooo-ooh okay up." Jerk......
    80x1 Coach started yelling at me about keeping the bar close and "exaggerate the catch!"
    84x1
    87x1x2 The first one was kind of janky so coach made me do it again. 2nd one was A-okay.
    89x1 Easiest one so far lolwut.
    91x1 Still going! Coach liked where this was going and gave me a bigger bump
    94x1 well all right then...
    96x1 "What are you doing?! This was the easiest rep so far! Keep going"
    98x0!!! I lost control of it was as I was standing up wtf
    98x1 Figured this would be it for the day as the program called for a daily max, but coach goes, "Meh you wanna snatch 100?" So casual! So we loaded up the bar for a half-assed attempt.
    100x1 Uh...... "Okay. Go up 3. We're doing it."
    103x1 PR Coach got a bit upset with me after this for not being more excited oh well what can I say, I have bigger problems in life than snatches.

    Wish I had something clever to say but I do not so there you go.

    Snatches are definitely a big problem in your life.
