Love to Lift Challenge - Day 25 of 100

Bob Takano

Olympic Weightlifting

You have to love weightlifting. It is as much art as it is science and sport. These workouts are designed to encourage your growth as a lifter and should be performed with excellence in movement in mind and not the weight on the bar. Stick with it for a 100 days of workouts and see how you feel.

 

For those of you who want to compete or have the requisite skills and training, you can sign up to follow my own personal cadre of competitive athletes' weightlifting intermediate and advance training programs which post every week.

 

The terminology is simple: (X/3)4 means do one lift 3 times for 4 sets. For a clean and push press, you may see (X/2+1)4, which means do 2 cleans then 1 push press as your set and perform for 4 sets


 

Day 25 of 100

It's interesting toi note that halting movements not only strengthen various phases, but also break the movement up into more learnable "chunks.” 

 

Power Snatch & Overhead Squat: (X/2+2)4
Power Clean & Power Jerk: (X/2+2)4
Halting Snatch Deadlift to Power Position: (X/4)4
Back Squat: (X/3)4
