Thursday's time depleted session

Today's session was a bit frantic due to me having the time management skills of deranged orangutang rife with rabies. I was supposed to follow Snatch doubles with Jerk behind the neck, Power Cleans and Clean Deadlifts, but I had to scrap the last two. Here is what I did:

Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 95, 80, 90--I got a nice double with 95 and in general the Snatch felt pretty good today.

Jerk behind the neck--1x2@80, 80, 100, 120 1x1@130, 140, 150, 155--I missed 155kg out front twice which was annoying. As you will see in the video below, over the last week I have been Jerking out front. Tommy said it might be because my back leg is too stiff, as in I am not getting under the bar enough. That felt like the reason to me as I was not dipping forward. This is a little habit I have developed over the last two weeks, so I will nip it in the bud now, cut back in weight and sort it out.

Have a look at the video--the Snatch double is actually with 90, not the reported 80 in the video-- and let me know if you see anything. I will be training in Limerick tomorrow and Saturday, so I am really looking forward to that.

Tommy's right (as usual.) Your back leg is too stright. It's also too far back, which is causing it to be too straight and to push everything forward...

Good luck with tomorrow, have a good one!
