Pretty Fun (if not exhausted) Start to the Week
It’s been quite the busy, but awesome, start to my week.
On Sunday, we had our 4-hour coaches workshop with Anna Martin and it was fabulous.
Alan and I were both taken aback at how much we improved at the drills from our Friday one-on-two session to Sunday. Between Friday’s session and Sunday’s workshop, we learned a ton not only about the lift but also on better techniques for coaching them.
Along those lines, I received a huge compliment. Anna, who, apparently, is not effusive with her praise, sent Alan a note Monday saying that she was very impressed with how well he and I could see mistakes and flaws in the lifters’ technique and that she felt good knowing that everyone was in good hands.
Not going to lie … that felt pretty good coming from a World Champion Olympic Lifter and coach. Kind of made my Monday,m to say the least.
4 hours of Cleans, Jerks, Clean & Jerks, and Snatches. Yay!
The Fried (Over-medium) CNS Day
We (those who attended the Sunday workshop) were not allowed to do any MetCons today. Only our Smolov work.
Smolov, Jr. Week 3, Day 3

Little Man in the House!
Smolov, Jr. Week 3, Day 4
10x 3 @ 85% +4 lb. - 135 lb.
HOORAY! It’s done. And I only missed 2 lifts the entire cycle. 1RM attempt coming on Sunday.
10 Minute EMOM
6 Sumo Deadlifts @ 45% of 1RM
This was super-fun. Alan and I raced and I smack talked the whole time about how I was kicking his ass, PR’ing the WOD and beating everyone in the gym. At one point he had to stop during his burpees to finish laughing.
And thanks to the little man being there today, I was 30 minutes late getting home because I couldn’t stop playing with him. Damn puppies … why u so cute?!?!?!
