Back Squats @ 78% (175.5#)
5X3 @ 175# + 3 BJ @ 24”

Clean Pulls @ 95% (156.75#)
3X3 @ 165#

5 minute EMOM
100m run
3 T2B

3 minute rest

5 minute EMOM
5 WB (10’ w/ 14#)
15 UB Dubs

Today was a good day. 175# felt good. Thought about doing 185# for the last set but decided to work on making my ascents faster.

CW is 149#. The time has come to make the descent to 140#. I’ve maintained my weight this past month, so I am happy with that.

I have two months to drop 10 pounds. Plenty of time to lose the weight, maintain strength and increase speed.

Goal for the meet is the same: 6/6 with 125kg total in the 69kg weight class.

Speak Up!

In case you didn’t know, I am passive aggressive.

I have been trying to work on speaking my mind more rather than walking around with a ball of anger.

Today was such a day.

While I cringed waiting for the confrontation, I must say, I am happy with my decision.

My mind is clear and I can use the brain space to visualize myself snatching 135#. Or cleaning 200#. Oh! Let’s visualize me deadlifting 325#.

I digress.

Zoom Coupon tip 56: Every Walgreens has different prices *gasp*. Make sure you check to find the “cheap” one closest to you. The one by my work, in Miami, is a rip off. 

This shampoo, at CVS one block over, is $4.99 (on sale, tip 54)

Plus, I have $3/2 coupons as well as $2 CVS shampoo coupons (tip 55). So I can get two bottles for $4.98. #coupons #couponing #whypayretail

Ring L-sits

I went lighter than prescribed today. My jerks are too much arms, not enough legs, so I tried to work on that. I catch my power snatches too high, so I was working on finding a mid point.

hookgripcom:

CJ Cummings (-62kg) aka @cummingzswagg jerking a new youth/junior/senior American record in the C&J with 153kg/337lbs. While this is an incredible achievement for a lifter of any age, he just turned 14 in June! By all accounts, he is the greatest weightlifting talent in the history of the USA and unless something goes wrong or he leaves the sport, he should completely rewrite the record books. Congrats CJ! Go follow him on Instagram, you will be watching greatness develop.

I watched this yesterday. This lift was amazing! His reaction after he made the lift was priceless.

Saturday 7/19/14

Fun filled day of shopping. 

Publix: The cashier missed one of my coupons so I had to go back and get it applied. Spent $57.80 for a $50 gas card and the items pictured. Saved $50.96.

Target: I used the free $10 gift card I got last week to buy some burger patties and a warmer. I got $1 back from Ibotta.

CVS: I found Chapstick on clearance! Even though I have enough (aka over 100) I could not pass up $0.82 and $0.99 for two! I had a free $5 credit from their Beauty Club so I used that to buy my sister some more Organix shampoo. Saved $31.41

Walgreens: Spent $2.24, saved $6.98 and got back $3.50 from Ibotta.

Farmer’s Market: $10. 

Now I am watching the women’s 48kg lifters. Then it will be time to take a nap.

Enjoy your Saturday.
