Love to Lift Challenge - Day 29 of 100

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 29 of 100

1)Snatch: singles to max
2)Clean & Jerk: singles to max
3)Front Squat: singles to max


Just do your best and keep a record of where you are at with your lifts now. We'll see how you progress before the 100 days are done.


Get as much rest as you need between sets. However, if you were preparing for a competition, you'd be trying to limit yourself to a maximum of 2 minutes between lifts, strictly enforced.
