Split Jerk (Bulgarian style)
Max weight Waiters Walk around the block
Heck yes for the split jerk… Yes the jerk is my favorite!!! and yes I said it. Ready for the waiters so I can prove to zach that I’ll still kick his ass in tinktink with a heavier weight 😉
SHANAGANS! I call SHANAGANS! Don’t listen to Roo no one likes her very much.
And big ups to our three bucket signers on that “sandbag Barbara” Day we had.
Gogo – First non booze gym puke
Amina – First time puker from what I read
Wes – UGLY GORILLA puker
He’s still upset I beat him after all the shit talkin he did
But also big props to ANNA for being a beast and finsihing the sandbag after I nearly murdered her!!!
this was probably one of the coolest sandbag passoff/runs ive seen. you know how ants can carry like 3 times their body weight? anna took that sandbag and carried it like a soldier!
another amazing technique was johnny’s forehead hook farmers walk. testament to that yacked neck. he looked like he had a really really heavy turban on. awesome.
Uh, yes… Had I not been in so much pain, I almost busted out laughing when I saw Johnny coming hot down the sidewalk w/ this black thing resting on his head…. Ditto on the yacked neck.
I heard his footsteps behind me on the way back and out of respect & awe, I stepped aside to allow him to cruise on by in his sand turban & vibrams.
Very awesome sight….
Also, seeing Matty just KB swing the sandbag to his shoulder was very, very, v e r y humbling.
Good effort by all!
Oh yes, and the sight of Ryan doing his airsquats whilst strattling the puke bucket (just.in.case.) was the best!
I pictured him just picking up the bucket, puking and not missing a squat.
So far just have the split jerk done so far cause I’ve gotta wait for scotty to finish his walk with betty…
Wasn’t happy with my split today but it happens I guess
1RM today=145, so then I did 125×2 and 115×3
My biceps are bein little bitches and are cramping like no other… Idk about the rest of u but I am welcoming tomorrow with open arms 😉
Scotty and I knew the weights we were looking for in the split today so we laddered out after the 1rm.
First time jerking in front sense I hurt my back (thats what she said). Felt O.K. no back pain on the catch or anything but I could definitly tell my timing was off. Add that to trying to do a proper split jerk and it wasnt a stellar day. Caught a decent split at 265 but I still plant my back foot flat on the catch so it wasn’t very pretty. Wanted to see how 275 felt, back felt fine but my split was little to none, and I had a wicked press out. Looked more like Svend then the Piz, need more russian flare and less viking power.
max for the day 275, then 230 3×1, 205 2×1, 215 1×1 ladder out.
Really excited that my back didnt give me shit on this. But taking the BEAST for a walk around the block was definitly one of those things that left me “Wishing I was anywhere but here right now”
Still waiting on Roo with that 70 pounder. FML I’m ready for a rest day.
Oh and I’d like to thank the Old Country style of lifting today for helping scotty finally get a a new pr.
Scotty – “Fuck I had that. 225 would have been a 5 pound pr for me.”
Zach – “Yeah you did have that. Go 235.”
Scotty – “235?”
Zach – “of course”
Zach & Scotty – “Fuck it! Fuck it we’ll do it live!”
15 pound pr later a very spartan like chest pump is thrown out. Nice job brotha
Can we please get:
“Fuck it! We’ll do it live”
on a tshirt please?!
Just got back in from my trip around the block
Get to the sidewalk have to drop it and switch hands… My internal monologue… “What the FUCK did I just get myself into?”…. It was more like amrap clean and jerk the 70# kb while Slowly makin my way around the block
I wanted to cry but I didn’t, I wanted to scream so I did, I wanted to throw that kb at someone’s head but I didn’t, I wanted to laugh so I did, but most importantly I wanted to quit but I didn’t, if the thought came to mind I told it to GFY…I didn’t care if I was going to make zach stay all day I was gonna get that fucker around the block… So around 33 minutes into iti get by mutley’s and somehow make my longest trip of my trek w/out having to set it down and make it to the 2nd window I make it to the corner shortly after only to realize that z had close the garage door so I had to carry the piece of shit thru the tiny door…
Just under 38 minutes I got it passed the line
Long story short I got fucked in the ass once again by betty, no lube just straight up thrusted in the ass with a sandpaper condom
Roo, that was graphic. Even I feel dirty. She might have left you raw but at least you could get it up 🙂
I am one day behind so I am doing this tomorrow. Fuck man, I puked today. First timer.
Can the bucket be “signed by proxy?”
I don’t know….it hasn’t been done before…
We’ll sign the bucket for you, you got the gym record on the leader board for deadlift may as well throw your name on the bucket as well.
Hell Yeah…I have always wanted to be on the bucket.
Today I was just happy to get a 1RM established. Didn’t go as I hoped but I ended up with #175. This was a new movement and I think that I’ll do better as I get more comfortable with the split portion.
As for the Waiter’s Walk. I need to HTFU. I went out the door with a #53 and thought to myself “I probably should have waited for the #70 to come back”. I was a coward and will face the shame. I ended up around 12 minutes and change.
Its ok jim cause I was next with the 70 and you woulda been waiting around a while… 😉
Less crampy today. Still gotta lot to learn on the jerks. Proud that I made it around the block but always wishin I could have carried heavier. Really lookin forward to a rest day!
1st time on split jerks 195# max. Looking forward to the next 1RM. I also went 53# on the walk and could have gone with the 70. Definitely feeling the effects of days 1-3. Time for more water, red meat and sleep.
315lb X 1
270 X 2
235 X 3
I danced with 325 but she got away from me. Next week its on!
Big Tim! Do you hear that? That’s the sound of a Silverback chest beating. I’m coming for you baby!
275 x 1
255 x 2
225 x 4
Two 70lb dumbells…FUCK. Took 40 fuckin minutes.
Just a kiss on the lips for JW
Worked on form for first day so as to not just Mongo the weight up. Humbling 205.
