Saturday's standard fare

I had a busy morning and week in general, so when a double espresso only makes you feel normal, you know it is not going to be a standout session. I still enjoyed it and was happy with getting 100/125 in this state. Here is what I did:

I took my time warming up and I did the following:

Clean grip Snatches--I just did these for fun. I did double with 40 twice, then 50 and singles with 60, 70 and 80. I left it there because I did not want to burn up what energy I had.

Snatch--1x2@40, 50, 60, 70 1x1@80, 90, 95--I missed this, then got it, missed 98 and then got. Both misses were due to not finishing the pull coupled with a cumbersome catch. I finished off with a sloppy single with 100 and left it there.

Clean and Jerk--1x1@60, 60, 80, 100, 110, 120, 125--These were ok. I needed to stay over the bar a bit more in the cleans and punch the Jerks out quicker, but I was happy enough.

Back Squats--1x2@110, 120, 130, 140--They were nice and light and I only did them to keep up the routine of squatting so they will go up eventually.

Have a look at the video and see what you see. I see a tired lifter lacking his co-ordination and I am looking forward to getting it back next week for the competition in Ulster. I am not really tapering too much for this one as the London open on Decemeber 5th is my real focus.
