Final Session before Meet

Thursday Feb 12, 2009

Knowing this was the last session before the meet, I knew not to get too aggressive and stayed in the confines of the template.

On the snatches, I went back to pulling off my toes until corrected. My last set of double were very solid and stopped while I was ahead. As for the C&J, if my catch is a little off, my jerk suffers. Again I ended on good form. Two days of rest and then the competition.

No details for the last three days other than to say I have continued with my plan of eating clean. Last night I had I went out and had a large steak dinner with a garden salad, steamed veggies, glass of wine, roasted peanuts and small piece of French bread.

You will do fine tomorrow. You've done everything right, now just relax and allow yourself to make your lifts. Session looked good. Nice and light, and a good confidence builder/form reinforcer before your big day. I'll be eager to hear your impressions.
