Monday's magnum

I was pretty tired during training today and looking back, I set my sights too high. I needed to be a little more realistic considering my training volume last week as well as maxing out on Saturday's second session. That's alright though, this is supposed to be a learning process after all. Here is what I did tonight:

A fifteen minute warm up. I was very stiff and warming up took more effort than usual.

Reverse Pulls--1x2@40, 50, 60, 70, 82 1x1@92--I did these as part of the warm up which also worked on pulling skill and back lock.

Snatch--Because I was so stiff, it was hard to get locked into position.
1x3@40, 40 1x2@60 1x1@80, 90, 95--This was awful so I went back to 90 again for a swinging miss behind and then a decent, but slow Snatch. I left it there.

Snatch Pulls--1x2@90, 100, 105, 110, 115

Cleans--1x2@60, 60, 90, 100, 110 for three doubles. These had to be ground out, but each set got a little better.

Back Squats--1x2@110, 120, 130, 140--I was all done in by then so I left it there for a quick stretch.

Have a look at the video below of some of the lifting today from Zag and I:

hey baz
just watch the roundage of the lower back on the reverse pulls in your last few vids its been creeping in, these exercises wont fix the roundage/ back lock issues if not performed very strictly.

It feels like I cannot do anything about the lower back in that exercise, but I will try extra hard next time I perform it. Cheers for the pointer.
