    Powerclean & Jerk Practice
    Whelp! I'll probably suck at Olympic Weightlifting til I die, but it sure is fun.

    Nothing crazy, started with 65, went up to 105. I'm off balance or on my toes or something, I think, timing isn't right. Not enough patience staying over as it got heavier, not quite in my lap, not tight enough to hold a dollar bill between my shoulder blades (or my boobs anymore), rack needs to be tighter, dip's a little bit forward - at the end trying to remember knees out, just bend the knees; and I struggled to land jerks back foot down first (I thought my best jerk was one I shortstepped).

    GOOD TIMES!!! IDK why this is so fun, but it is.

    And also, trying to explain to men that I don't train my butt because, it's behind me, I can't even see it; and every age guy in there is looking at the young girls doing THEIR butts, not grannies. The guy said, he knows every mirror trick there is (there's always somebody's butt in his face) Probably as it should be.

    Glad you're having fun with the Oly work. It's nice to see people happy!

    Saturday early gym's pretty quiet/empty - it's really lovely.
    Once people start coming in - time to take off? We'll see, so far its ok; the gymmate next to me used etiquette (saw that I was going to jerk, stopped/waited rather than going in my vision). Snatch - will probably entail a LOT more misses and falls on my butt, trying not to scare people so much. I don't know if my knees will take full snatch anymore.

    Debbie Does Deload

    Week 17, Day 1
    Comp Squat
    (100-145) 140x3x2s @6
    Press (60-70) 65x3x2s @6*
    Pause BK DL (165-190) 180x2x2s @6
    Legg Press (3-4 RIR) 140x6x3s @4,4,3
    Vup BWx10, x9x2s @3RIR

    Had a big baker's cyst behind my right knee, I realized last night, in an epsom salt bath. Stretched and it was quite a bit smaller. ?? Also right hip/low back/leg very sore starting yesterday afternoon. Walking was difficult - training was better than walking.*
    I also hung from the pull-up bars and did a bit of just kipping - and hung on the angled back extension thingy.

    Realized my weight was on my toes when it shouldn't have been during pcln&j; probably forward a lot of it, would have to ask a qualified coach. For jerks, need to revisit jerking with toes hanging off a board, or visualize that again I think, IF I can continue.


    *price of pcln&j at 61yo
    age is not just a number; you really DO need to be lucky - enough to not have issues w/things beyond your control like, baker's cysts, stenosis, PD/Lyme/cholesterol/BP/Afib, knee problems, et al....

    It is 1:21, so a few hours later. The leg/hip hard to walk thing, seems to be gone.

    That's quite a laundry list, but at least 2 are familiar to me.
