Saturday's start in the morning

Myself and Zag had to train earlier than usual this morning so we had a 30 minute power up session at 09.30; a 45 minute break; Snatch to max for the day/morning; a 15 minute break and then a 25 minute Clean and Jerk session after. It was freezing this morning-- almost more so in the gym!-- and considering how early it was compared to when I usually train and that I was pretty fatigued from the week in general, I was happy with how training went. Here is what I did:

A multi joint warm up followed by glute and scap pre hab and bar work.
Power Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 40, 60, 70

45 minutes later:

Bar work for 5 minutes
Snatch--1x2@50, 50 1x1@70, 80, 90, 95, 100--I missed this by swinging it out front. I then got it, then got 105 and I should have left it there because I knew that was my limit this morning. I had a half hearted attempt at 108.5 and left it there.

15 minutes later:

Clean and Jerk--1x1@70, 70, 70, 100, 112, 122, 132--I got the clean but the bar in the rack position was all over the place so I dropped it. I got the Clean and Jerk of 132 two minutes later and left it at that.

Zag got 95/110 and like me, found the time and weather conditions tough to deal with. But as long as we are getting over 90% early on a Saturday morning, I am happy. Bring on London; I can't wait! The last part of the video is particularly interesting by the way...

I now live pretty much equi distance between Heathrow and Gatwick. I am happy to collect you guys from the airport but it probably does make sense for you to hire a car for the week.

Try to get an early flight on the 2nd so we can do a light session that afternoon to get the New year kinks out!
