Last weekend I tried my third PBA tournament. I did better placewise, but I still suck (42nd out of 57). I had 5 190 games, two sub 150 games, and nothing over 200. I threw the ball pretty well, but I had trouble staying lined up. Can't wait to give it a go -- I am going to cash in one of these.
OK, not great week of training. I have been learning about fitness assessment, and all I have to say is that the fitness assess industry sucks ass. There is this measurement called BMI, which is defined as Weight/Height^2. This would be useful, except that we are not all shaped like a rectangle. In my business, I would never use BMI if I could use a quality BIA machine or take skinfolds using calipers.
I do know that my BF is high (about 26%), I need to lose about 15 lbs. Even with the extra fat, HR (60) and BP (118/78) are normal. Also, I tested off the charts in the step test, push up test, and the BP test. I have been good at figuring out how to increase perform, lets see how good I am at changing body composition.
Lots of talk about the new snatch test. It is a timed test (how many can you do for 5 minutes). Personally, the way they have this test I think is too easy. 10 more reps would be just right.
Here is a video of me doing 80 snatches with the 24kg with one arm (old RKC snatch test with one arm and an extra 16 reps).
Technique could still use some work. Also, I am breathing heavy because of my allergies (cats).
I looked a little doughy in the pictures -- looking to lose 15lbs in 2 months while maintaining my strength.
