  • hey, i read that book (or at least the golden illustrated classics comic book). it was called “the time machine.”
    keith, way to go, man. it takes guts and persistence to turn two (f)s into a PR.

    125, 135, 145, 150, 155F, 155, 160Fx4
    notes: The 160# were tough. Got under them but didn’t drive the hips up. Front Squats need some work.
    Hari had a good quote: “I diet for Fran.”
    Definitely using that next time people wonder why I’m eating egg whites. 😛

    I wanted to post these youtube vids of Tommy Kono talking about the snatch. I’d say rather helpful to very helpful.

    Jay H,
    “I diet for Linda.”
    (Linda is RX’d as a function of body weight. Fran is not.)

    175 Old PR, from ’06
    225 New PR
    All lifts from floor, caught in full squat. Kieth, I was shooting to nail 185lbs today, but after seeing your post I pushed myself way farther than I would have. Thanks.

  • Adam

    I did this at Roxanne’s gym today. Got a few funny looks as usual.
    Followed it up with
    315 x 6 x 6
    Front Squats
    165 x 6 x 6
    Standing Press
    130 x 6 x 6
    Weighted pull-ups
    60 x 6 x 6
    Let’s all hope that my back is still feeling okay tomorrow.
    By the way, nice work Keith. Two fails and then a PR at the same weight. I wish I could’ve seen that.

  • Justin

    Great 1st day at the cert… Before lunch, it was full set of BTB Tabata squats, and last part of the day was a full FGB, so yeah, Im toast. And it looks like tomorrow is Fran and something else. Cant wait since Im pretty exhausted already. At least they had a shit load of beer for us afterwards to kill the pain.
    Anyways, everyone says hi and loves the fact that the Blackbox pretty much is taking over the certs with all the people attending.

  • Brett, if you want to thank me, stop beating me on every workout. 🙂
    I wanted to hit 225 today, but those Fs slowed me down. I was getting closer with each attempt and knew that I had it in me. Lots of visualization and concentration is what makes those big lifts go up. I think my lifting will improve when I’m not as self conscious about dropping the weights. Hesitation doesn’t work when oly lifting.

  • Adam

    Definitely Keith. When you know in the back of your head you can just drop the weight if you miss it, you will more aggressive.

  • Justin

    Well lets just say fuck it from here on out and go lift outside… That way if we drop it, it will just hurt people on the sidewalk, and really, don’t we have too many of them anyways?

  • Kevin

    I’m all for going outside and dropping weight. Lord knows I am very self conscious lifting heavy at the box. Always worried about dropping the weight or even getting aggressive and stomping my feet before a big lift.

  • marisela

    i jus wanna wk out again. mon i’ll be back in full form. lunch class.
