Our Junior Lifters are coming around and adapting to Double Workouts this week. It takes time but they already are seeing the benefits. Friday Morning Cody King Front Squatted up to 150 for 3×3 then worked up to 3×1 in the Snatch with 120 kilos. This weight is become very routine and automatic at that is what I want. In the Afternoon he worked up to 3×1 in the Clean & Jerk with 140. We are still working some kinks out in the Jerk. Cody finished with a 240 kilo Back Squat and a PR attempt at 250 which he just came up a little short at.
Cody’s training partner Jake Mapes Worked up to 140 kilos for 3×3 in the Front Squat in the morning Session and just Power Snatched up to 70 kilos for a couple of doubles. Jake was feeling a little stiff so we didn’t push it. In the evening he loosened up and he worked up to 140 kilos in the Clean & Jerk for 4×1. Jake finished off the night with a 210 kilo Back Squat.
