In the Olympic News!

“North Korea’s Om Yun Chol said he wanted to lift a big weight and make the other athletes nervous. He definitely nailed that strategy. Om, standing all of 5 feet and 123 pounds, won a gold medal by confidently lifting an Olympic-record 370 pounds in the clean and jerk at the London Games. Only a handful of people have lifted more than three times their body weight, and this one came out of nowhere.” http://www.galesburg.com/features/x1489220877/London-Olympics-Weightlifter-hoists-three-times-his-body-weight ]]>

  1. 135# back squats
    10:sumpin’ on KB swings. I did not do a single wall ball and honestly i think time might have been quicker by taking the wall ball hit at least twice.

    • I took the wall-ball hit 4 times and think it gave me a pretty good chance to shake out the forearms. I think my rep scheme was 50-50-25-15-10.

  2. I don’t recall my rep scheme. It was something along the lines of Holy F, how many more!? I was just glad I didn’t send the KB flying a few times as grip + sweat and no chalk =’s trouble…

    I didn’t put the KB down even with the promptings of Coach Jared.
    Thoughts? Should I have did some Wallballs? Does it really make a difference?

    9:59 Rx. The wb two fers were a nice break, but I never like doing more work because I had to rest. I only did 3 sets of WBs and tried to tough out as many KBS as possible. Holy forearms, Batman!
