Thursday's throwdown

I had a fun session tonight after getting back at half one last morning. It was nice having loads of energy throughout this snappy session and even though nothing was fast, the Snatch Pulls I have been doing have helped my bar trajectory. This morning I saw an ART guy in Port Laoise. He sorted out my shoulder that was bothering me and worked on getting rid of the knots in my hips. I will go there for one more session and then judge accordingly. Here is what I did tonight:

I did Snatch Pulls to warm up in between stretching and Overhead Squats. These are a good skill exercise and it warms me up nicely.
1x3@40, 40, 50, 60, 70
1 Snatch Pull+1 Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80

Snatch--1x1@85, 85, 90, 94, 97, 100, 102--These were slow but I was not swinging the bar out so that despite the poor speed, the bar was were it should have been sp I was able to make each lift. The Snatch Pulls have really helped me extend up and use my arms to keep the bar close to my body. My feet were not going out in the catch at all, but this can only improve with the flexibility I have been doing.

Power Clean and Jerk--1x2@80, 80, 90
1x1@100, 110, 110, 120--I was working on going straight down in the Jerk dip rather than letting my weight go too far forwards at the bottom of the dip. I also tried to get my front foot forwards by putting more pressure on my back foot. Cathal and Kevin really helped me in this regard in Bucharest.

Flexibility and ab work.
