    I think it's easy to fall into the trap of only looking at Logs with big numbers...some of the more informative and entertaining logs I've ever read have been from some of the elder / smaller / weaker members who show extreme dedication and application regardless.

    Got elder and weaker covered.

    ...... who show extreme dedication and application regardless. Chris
    i have been admired for years for my dedication ---- which is bullshit because training is my pleasure and delight. it is not driven by determination, drive, endurance, and mental power.
    but i suppose i have no other option, as i see myself as an athlete and warrior, and if i did not train like them, my conscience would give me no rest.

    What numbers are you looking for at the contest?
    Thanks for your interest Chris. It's a simple question, but i can't give you a simple answer ------ because ----- i am cutting weight to get down to the 85 k class. There are no state records age 75 to 79 in this class, so if i make it, i can have a series of field days.
    In the past, training hard on a deficit diet has caused me injury, due to slowed recovery after workouts, so i will have to watch volume and intensity carefully.
    now, if i DON'T get all the way down to below 85 k, which might happen, as now i am "mature" losing any weight at all is a major problem - lifting as a very light 94 is daunting.
    The records here are 42 and 50, which i can tackle when my weight is up, but close to 85? i don't think so.
    Because of unfortunate events in our state, i have to train on my own in a little fitness gym with carpeted floor, where it is inappropriate to drop a bar. i am away from coaching, team members, platforms, extensive exercise equipment, and a safety rack for heavy squats.
    So in the contest i will be lonely going onto a platform without supporters or advisers, and have we have the world's strictest referees, much worse than any national/international refereeing i have seen.
    Have often run into trouble, getting lifts rejected, though i practically never fail to get lifts up. I am a state level referee, so i know by feel they are not too bad. My training has been geared to making fast, low, beautiful lifts. So i hope this continues when i go heavy on the platform.
    Are well, it will be interesting.

    Contest in 5 days. Weight loss had stalled. I was doing a tough version of 16/8, namely 20/4. So I upped the ante by adding 5/2. The first day's fast made a big move, so I am hopeful.

    Split snatch. Stick - 1.1.1.1. (20 k) 1.1.1. (25) 1.1. (30) 1. (35) 1.

    That's all I can do today. Have to keep dropping weight for Sat.
