Training went well again tonight. I should have warmed up my stiff back a little more which would have helped me in the Snatch, but otherwise I did well. Here is what I did:
My usual twenty minute warm up of the joints, the relevant muscles and activating the glutes and hips.
Snatch--1x2@50, 50, 70 1x1@80, 90, 95, 100, 105--I left it there because I was not able to keep my back locked properly. My hips felt pretty loose so I was able to catch the 105 you will see in the video below. I will warm up the area with more care tomorrow.
Clean and Jerk--1x2@70, 70 1x1@100, 115, 125, 130, 135, 140--I missed the Clean on the first attempt because I was not fast enough in the pull or the catch. I then got 140 for a straightforward Clean and Jerk and went for 145 which would have been a new pb. I pulled myself under it, but when I adjusted at the bottom, my elbows dropped and stopped my squatting the bar up with any power. It was a very close miss that I put down to timing and the bar possible being slightly out front. I will get this very very soon and I know I have more in the tank for the London Open.
Back Squat--1x2@130, 150, 160--Short and sharp, I left it there.
Have a look at the video and let me know if you have any pointers.
