Went to the WL gym today and it was awesome! We broke up the clean & jerk into different stages and praticed those a lot. After I got the hang of things I did real C&Js and finished off with some heavy squats. Now, I'm off to bed as I'm beat to shit from pulling stuff a gazillion times today.

Back in the gym after three days in bed with a stomach flu. I wasn't able to hold down any food the first two days, so energi levels today were crap, but I praticed the snatch and did some C&Js.

Hey, just stumbled into your log because of the title and realized there is some serious training going on. Awesome that you are taking up weightlifting, the king of sports :D . What kind of club are you training at, is it big?

Thanks bronco :)

Weightlifting so far has been awesome! There's just something about being able to move big weights up over your head :D The club I'm at is fairly small, maybe 40 members. The thing about the place is that you have to compete in order to train there, which is actually nice, because now I don't have to bother with douchebags curling in the squat rack or people telling me not to squat below parallel ;)

How about your, bronco, do you compete?

I was too tired to update yesterday ;)

C&J day! Lots of pulling, overhead stuff and full C&Js. Finished off with some heavy front squats and a lot of stretching.

40 members is small in denmark? That's bigger than all clubs in sweden. I no little about danish weightlifting, are there any international level lifters?

Yes, I did some comps two years ago and now I have just taken it up again. Comps are great fun :D.

The club recently got fused with a PL club, so that's why we got so many members :D I'd say we're about 10 active WLers, the rest are PLers. Denmark haven't had any international level lifters for a loooong time, I think the last great lifter we had was Niels Petersen who won 1st in the 1949 European Championships Unlimited class.

Back from vacation :)

Clean day! Lots of cleans/power cleans, clean pulls mixed with front squats and core work.

My coach is really impressed with my technique and strength :D Also, he nicknamed me Bomben (The bomb) because apparently I'm explosive as fuck. Needless to say, I'm really proud and more motivated than ever :)

Clean day!

Power cleans, clean high pulls and regular C&Js. Finished it all off with some front squats and core work.

Gotta get me some straps, cause all these high pulls are ripping the shit out of my hands.
