Workout Update

I haven’t posted much in the way of workouts recently, so thought I’d stick up what I’ve done the last 2 days at the globo gym in Cardiff. Yesterday I was really hopeful the new bumper plates had turned up so I could do some Oly lifting, but no. It’s been over 3 weeks now. Worse, they tell me that they’ve cancelled the order cos the guy hasn’t even taken their money yet, so all his promises of they were “in the post” were clearly tosh. So now they have to find a new supplier and start the process all over again, gah!

Anyway, yesterday I did:

  • 3 x Snatch Pulls at: 40kg, 50, 60, 70, 75 and 80.
  • 3 x Front Squat + 1 jerk at: 40kg, 50, 60, 70. I tried 80 but it was too much for me, bringing the metal plated bar down gently.
  • 10 minutes double under challenge, this time I got 164 which was very pleasing.

Today, after 3 weeks of nagging, they relented and allowed me to use the existing broken bumpers. But to be honest, I was so worried about them falling to bits completely, it put me off. I worked on Snatch technique at 60kg for an hour, then did some cleans in the power rack. But the fat bar was weird and it all went wrong when I got to 90kg.

A frustrating couple of days.

    Very hard work training at a globo gym. I find myself getting annoyed over every little thing in those places for some strange reason.
