Volume and more volume

Posted in bergeron open, cleans, double unders, front squats, jerk on May 1, 2015 by coughingsparks

Another big competitors lifting day.  I would do it tomorrow, but there is probably not going to be time.  As a matter of fact, I am not sure how likely consistent Saturdays for two hours are going to be for me.  Ah well, case by case.  Started with front squats, 4×3 adding 5-10 pounds from last week:


Next was a complex of three power cleans and one jerk, and I got 135#, and then I got 145# x2 power cleans.  Then came the Bergeron Open Test, which is a 20-minute AMRAP of:

-50 wall balls
-50 DU
-40 box jumps
-40 TTB
-30 burpees
-30 CTB
-20 things
-20 other things
-10 what’s-its
-10 muscle ups in there somewhere

I got 222, which is 12 into the CTB.  This is not a bad score at all, for me.  I did the wall balls unbroken, and I did better than usual on the TTB.  Then came Pendlay rows, 3×10, which I did at 105#, which turned out to be the perfect weight because I had just done the CTB, so it was pretty hard.  Finished with a partial Flight Simulator, 3 attempts each at 10-20-30-40-50-40-30-20-10 DU, go on to the next one if you miss.  So that was 10-(15,8,3)-30-(9,14,2)-(19,5,6), which was the set of 50.  Then I ran out of time for the day as I had to go to work.  I cut it close too, and so didn’t have time to eat second breakfast really.  I will have more carbs with dinner for sure.

ETA: Oh yeah, my iPod took a dump 20 wall balls into the Bergeron Open Test.  Sumbitch.
