Road to the 2015 American Open: Week 2, Day 4


This road I’m taking to the 2015 American Open is not an easy one, but I think I’m headed in the right direction. Yesterday was a great day of training. Things seem to be coming together! I clean and jerked 110kg for two singles, which is the most I’ve successfully lifted in over a year. I’ve been trying to add some body weight as well and, so far, it is slowly climbing. I’ll start recording that for you all to see, too. I mentioned the sleep cycle app and will include that in today’s post. Keep training hard!

Here’s my second single at 110kg

I may have one more training day before I have to leave for Orlando for the NSCA’s TSAC conference. I’ll be there for a whole week because we decided to stay a couple extra days and go to Harry Potter World! Yes, I’m a dork 😎

I’m planning on finding a gym while I’m down there but, if I can’t, I may have to settle for hotel gyms. Gross, right?!!
