Tuesday's thorough training session

Training was hard tonight because I am coming to the end of a term and the fatigue that has been creeping in over the last few weeks is no longer creeping, but striding confidently up to me and trying to shout me down. I was yawning throughout the session, but it went ok despite this. The finer points of my technique were not particularly sharp, but I got through it. This means I will have to temporarily abandon my competition phase of training in order to get fresh for Bucharest. I will have four days in Spain to recover from that so I will be fresh for the week and a half before the competition. Here is what I did tonight:

Overhead Squats--5x5
Hang Power Snatch--1x3@bar, 40, 40, 50

Power Snatch--1x3@50 1x2@60, 70 1x1@75, 80, 85, 87, 89, 90- missed this twice due to overpulling the bar, then underpulling it, then getting about right the third time. I was not particularly sharp. I also was not keeping my shoulders locked into place.

Jerk skill work with the bar
Jerk from the rack--1x2@70, 80 1x1@90,90, 100, 110, 115, 120--I missed this because I was dipping down on my right side for some bizarre reason and I kept clipping the bar off the Jerk rack which completely put me off my tempo. This was quite frustrating and I left it considering I was tired.

Back Squat--The nice thing about squats is that they are less demanding skill-wise, so I was strong on these.
1x3@70 1x2@100, 120
1x1@130, 140, 150, 160, 165

Hanging Straight Leg Raise--3x5
