Wednesday's walkway

I had a good session today and I made sure to eat properly beforehand. I was determined to control the volume more today after going a bit over the top yesterday. The Snatches felt a bit heavier than they should have and the Clean and Jerks were not quite as fluid as I would have liked, but otherwise all was well and I felt like i progressed from yesterday. Here is what I did:

Power Snatch--3x3@40 1x2@50, 60, 60 1x1@70, 70, 80, 85, 90 for three singles.
Again I focused on trying to stay over the bar and to keep the back locked throughout the pull. I am getting slightly better with both, but it can be frustrating when you can feel yourself pulling back when you want to extend up.

Clean and Jerk--1x1@70, 70, 90, 100, 110, 120, 125, 130--My best single was with 125. in this rep the Clean was far smoother and I did not let the bar crash down on me as you can see on the video below. My Jerks were a bit out in front and Tommy was reminding me to Jerk off my heels rather than my toes.

Front Squat--1x2@120, 130, 140, 150, 155--I missed the second rep on both the first and second set of 155kg. I just could not get through the sticking point. Next time...( picture Monty Byrnes drumming his fingers....)

Press--Zag was doing these so I gave it a quick bash because I have not done the movement since the summer. I did singles with 50, 55, 60, 65, 70, 75, and 80 to finish it off. I really should be able to get a bodyweight press with 95kg. Should I spend time trying to get it? No thanks.

Have a look at the video and leave any pointers you have.
