Thursday's triples

I had an excellent session today. I had a busy day but I was energised from a good coaching session before and I was raring to go. I was short for time so I had to skip the lengthy warm up skill work and get straight into the meat of the session. I did the following:

Overhead Squats--5x5
Hang Power Snatch--1x3@60, 65, 70, 75, 80 for 5 sets. These were fast, but very tiring. I was feeling my legs after this one so I knew I must have been using the right muscles.
Jerk skill with the bar
Jerk from the rack--1x1@70, 70, 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 115 for 5 singles. I really had to focus on getting these right. I always find Jerks from the rack difficult, so Iput everything I had into these.
Front Squat--1x3@70, 90, 110, 125, 135, 145--These felt good and solid. I had only previously squatted 145 for a double and 150 for a single so I was happy with my final set.

That was it for this evening. Below is a video of my third set of Hang Power Snatches at 80 and one Jerk with 110 and my final set of Squats. As usual, if you have any feedback on my technique I would appreciate the pointers.

Do you use straps when doing these triples from the hang? Its hard to tell from the video.

No, I don't use straps at all really. I try to avoid using them unless I am doing pulls, which is very rarely so far in Harry's plan. It is good for my grip the less I use the straps and I always try and look after my hands as much as possible. Thanks again for the article Eamonn.
