I had a sweet session tonight with lots of sharp technical work and partner flexibility. I had a 15 minute power nap and this made the world of difference in tonight's session. Here is what I did:
Partner flexibility and dynamic flexiblity supersetted with Snatch Pulls with 40 and 50kgs for triples.
Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 50, 60 1x1@70, 80, 85, 90--This was slightly higher than Harry said to go, but I wanted to Snatch 90 while focusing on staying over the bar, extending up and keeping the bar close to the body. It felt smoother than last week's 90 and I have a video comparing the two lifts below, so let me know what you think. Last Saturday showed me that if I stay over the bar and finish my pull, I can lift 105+ easily because it is a question of smooth control, not power.
Jerk skill with 40
Clean and Jerk--1x1@60, 80, 90, 100--These were all fast and I focused on getting the feet out with the catch in the Clean and keeping the arms relaxed. With the Jerk, I took my time and controlled my abdomen and my dip.
Partner Flexibility for 10 minutes.
I will be competing in the Small Nations tournament in Malta on Saturday, so I will learn from Nationals and go somewhere else until my warm up. I will make sure I am not hungry also and that I have loads of sugar handy for between the Snatch and Clean and Jerk.
