    Is this John from HGRT?
    C'est moi, Mike. Thank you for your kind words. Hardly anyone was reading, so i came here.

    Thurs 24-8-2017.

    stick warmups.
    Jerk Thrust. (45 k) 5. (55) 5. (60) 5.
    Clean pulls. (45) 5. (55) 5. (60) 5.

    some last minute light lifts.
    split snatch. stick - 1.1.1.1. (20 k) 1.1.1.1. (25) 1.1.1. (30) 1.1.1. (35) 1.1.
    split c+j. stick - 1.1.1.1. (20 k) 1.1.1.1. (25) 1.1.1. (30) 1.1.1. (35) 1. (40) 1. (45) 1.

    The 5/2 fasts seemed to have worked and weight has dropped below 85 k.
    So with a bit of luck i might do something on Sat. Going to be cautious, due to a probable loss of strength.

    Thank you Mike. I screwed myself in an unprecedented, total disaster.
    6 out of 6 ruled out.
    The first 2 snatches were pretty alright. i'm the only splitter, and the judges are used to squat lifts, where they pull up and catch it overhead, although i have seen pressouts with this (usually passed). The split snatch is a pull-push : after the pull, you use the bar to push yourself down into a deep split. It is fast, and should not be classed as a pressout, any more than a jerk. So i just have to get my lifts just perfect.
    The remaining 4 lifts were just crap and fully deserved being failed.
    I did get my bodyweight down to well under 85, so that was good. Took my energy down, though. Should not have tried all those technique tweaks.
    I will live to ride again. Next comp 6 weeks.

    Split C+J. stick - 2.2. (20 k) 2.2. (25) 2.2. (30) 2.2.

    Thank you Chris. It was in my hands. I should have been smarter and more effective.

    Get 'em next time! Fire in the belly for this next 6 week block!
    Oh, yeah. Nothing like humiliation and self criticism to make sure nothing like this ever happens again.

    Bummer John. Go kill it next time. Are you going to stay at 85kg?
    Thanks Mike. I am determined to make it happen. Yes, i will stay in this weight class at this stage.
    I was surprised how my energy and power dropped so much with the bodyweight loss. This year i have been nudging my body fat down slowly, with no problem until this event. My body had gotten where i wanted it to look as an ultra skinny teen. I have the things i always wanted - fine delts, v shape, calves, gunz. It's a matter of getting the waistline down for looks and health, while maintaining muscle size.
    Once i get there, i'm going to let bodyweight go where it naturally wants to, with no forcing.
