I had a fun session today and some close analysis was needed after I got home and looked at the videos closely. The plan was to Power Snatch to max and to Back Squat to max. But, it did not quite work out like that. Here is what I did:
A relatively short warm up with the bar ensued because time was short.
1x1@70, 75, 80, 85, 90, 95--A new training Power Snatch pb. It is on the video below.
Squat Snatch--1x1@98, 100--These were very close to being Power Snatches, but they felt very fast.
Snatch--Myself and Sami agreed I was looking fast so I wanted ot see what would happen. Straight afterwards I regretted it, but then I analysed the videos closely and I think I may have found out why I have not been able to keep that back lock over 100kg.
1x1@106 and then I missed 111 and 109. The misses and successes are below. I could not understand how I was able to keep my back locked two weeks ago and not since then, so I looked at the videos from then and anaylsed them very closely. I realised that I was trying to do over the last two weeks was to lock my back isometrically, when before, Tom had me actively pulling with my mid and upper back along with my legs. This helped me keep that lock and maintain my back angle throughout the first pull.
Now, because I am not actively pulling with my mid/upper back, my ass rises too early and this means I have to swing it in the pull, which also causes me to jump backwards while the bar goes forwards. Because I sorted out my first pull, these two things were not happening, unlike now. I have to sort this out and regroove my first pull. I cannot go back to the way I was lifting before. Have a look at the video and leave any comments if you can help.
