This weekend marked the beginning of a pretty serious PR battle between Outlaw Barbell’s best 85k lifters – Sam “No, I’m Not Lü” Jay, and Logan “Toto” Dobbs.
Logan started the whole thing with a 152kg PR Clean & Jerk, then after seeing Sam’s Snatch of 125kg from the Portland camp, hit this 125kg PR on Sunday night.
On Saturday in Portland, Sam hit this 145kg Clean & Jerk PR, and BARELY missed 150kg right after. Both of them have qualifying meets coming up in the next few weeks. Which means we’re probably gonna need a couple new singlets for the AO.
1) 5X1 Two Position Clean (hang & power position) – heavy but NO MISSES, rest as needed
2) 5X2 Jerk from blocks – heaviest possible, rest as needed
1a) 4+1X3 Touch & Go Cleans (full) – three sets to work to a 3rm (see note for explanation of +1), rest 90 sec.
Note: The +1 set is an additional ME UB set @ 75% of the 3rm established in the first four sets. The goal is as many T&G reps as possible – with perfect technique – before dropping the bar.
1b) 4X8 Tempo Ring Dips (3 counts down, 3 count pause at bottom, 3 counts up, 3 count pause at top) – if 8 reps at strict tempo is too easy add weight, rest 2:00
Alternating EMOM for as long as possible (or until 20:00):
5 Power Snatches 135/95#
7 Bar-Facing Burpees
7 Shoulder to Overhead 135/95#
