    Hi Jerry. Your training is going really well, steadily improving. Mine was too, pre lockdown.

    The lockdown has been really effective, stopping the spread in its tracks. The people in this state have been disciplined and compliant --- unlike masses of idiots elsewhere in this country and overseas gathering without social distancing or facemasks, attacking the police so they can have their freedums - to infect and kill their fellow citizens.
    The 7 day lockdown ends at midnight 27/7. So i will see how i am faring on thurs. Hopefully not lost too much.
    Mon 26/7 did many, many 20 second bursts of the O.L.s thru the day.

    Thanks. I'm trying my best. I've read many things about training for us oldsters. Seems the main thing is to keep at it even if the weights get lower. Hope you can get back in the gym Stay well

    Hi Jerry. really minimalistic training with small increases in load continues to work well. Fascinating to see where i might get.

    Out of lockdown after 10 days, not much damage except my clean and press max attempt, which stalled at chin height. Ah well, 4 weeks to rebuild for the next attempt.

    I gotta say itís a huge inspiration to see someone 80-years-young still plugging away at the Olympic lifts. As someone who uses the power variations as mainstays in my own training, it gives me hope that Iíll be able to continue doing then for many, many more years.
    Hi kd.
    You are using a good plan. The power versions of the OL's will certainly train your fast twitch fibres and (I reckon) will improve your athleticism.
    When I started my masters OL career on retirement, I came from a background of masters competitive swimming and 30 years of Tai Chi, so I was pretty flexible. The top master lifter in our state told me that no master lifter dropped as low as I do.
    When I caught the plague on an overseas trip to the UK 7 years ago, I lost my sense of balance and couldn't do the squat snatch anymore, so I started doing the split style, which no one seems to do now.
    I find this style tremendously beautiful and satisfying, so I am working to get like the old masters of this style.

    I sure am inspired by your log. It sure was great watching the Olympic lifts. Those ladies and men are amazing. My grandson was in awe of them putting weight overhead that would be a nice DL.
