Clean and Jerk. Week 2 Cycle 5 | Hill Sprints #29

Well, today called for 205lbs on the clean and jerk. Last time I used 205lbs I did five reps, so I knew I wanted to get six today with seven being the ultimate goal since I did seven reps at 200lbs for week 2 cycle 4. Reps 1-5 were way easier than I thought they were going to be, but by rep six I got lazy and didn't follow through on the jerk (it was well high enough, I simply had to step forward). On the bright side, I've never failed a rep on the jerk portion and succeeded to knock another one out like I did today.   If not for that mental error, I would have had the seven reps easy. Either way, I'm still progressing.

Week 2 progress on c&j thus far:

Cycle 1 Week 2: 185x7
Cycle 2 Week 2: 190x7
Cycle 3 Week 2: 195x6
Cycle 4 Week 2: 200x7
Cycle 5: Week 2: 205x6 (virtually 205x7).

As you can see, the reps have stayed consistent with the increased weight every month. ~4 months and 20 lbs put on clean and jerk in the 6-7 rep range. Can't complain about that.

Goals for today:




Assistance work:

Weighted chin-ups (+25lbs), 41 reps in 5 sets: 10, 10, 10, 6, 5. Big improvement here over last time.
Weighted dips (+45lbs): 50 reps in 5 sets.
