Olympic lifts are definitely worth trying. The change from strength to power feels amazing. Sometimes i do miss the old sweat and iron gyms.
My numbers aren't great right now. I dont ORM often so these are all approximation. Cleaning about 125, back squat somewhere in the mid 200's, bench about 205, front squat maybe 185, and 5 miles in around 34-35 min. My training schedule is all kinds of funky, so I've just had to fit in odd workouts here and there
I'm trying to do a bit of everything. I've just started to do olympic lifts, so I'm trying to comfortably rep out cleans at 60kgs, and then just be able to jerk in general. I'd like to get my bench to 275bs ORM, back squat to 315, and front squat to at least 225. With all of this I'm aiming for a 30min 5 mile while mainting sprint speed.
Basically the overall goal is to keep a solid balance of endurance, strength, and speed. Several somewhat recent life occurences have held me back but I've been making decent progress so far.
- There is the moral of all human tales;
'Tis but the same rehearsal of the past.
First Freedom and then Glory—when that fails,
Wealth, vice, corruption—barbarism at last.
And History, with all her volumes vast,
Hath but one page.
Relative youth changes when you're talking teens into early 20's. I'm younger then blackbootz and have a difficult time connecting with 18-20 year olds, but generally no problems with anyone older. 21-22 feels like a solid dividing gap between maturity in America(with many exceptions of course). I'm guessing many of the people he interacts with are still transitioning into an adult mindset.
I typically explore cities solely by foot(I had to give up in Berlin), so I'm super excited to check out a city restricted to foot traffic. From first impression it's incredible how quiet Venice is. Outside of tourist areas you hear almost nothing. Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to check out murano
On a bus to Venice. Any suggestions on things to do outside of the normal tourism sphere are always welcome.
I spent yesterday wandering the outskirts of Florence. Had several long conversations with various artisans. One directed me to the far reaches of the city, where I bought shoes from a pair of Chilean/Italian cobblers. They didn't speak a word of English, so we'll see what the hell arrives in a couple weeks.
