Wednesday's waiting game

I had a late session this evening. I had a quick but thorough warm up and I went straight into:

Snatch doubles--1x2@40, 40, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90--I missed the second rep twice, but then I got both for three doubles with 90. Once I finished my pull and got my back locked it was fine. I find that when I get tired, my back lock and flexibility get steadily worse and the only way I can get them ok, is to focus completely on them.

Snatch Pulls--1x2@90,90, 100, 100--These were not feeling right so I went right back down to basics with 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, 100, 100 for three doubles and these last few sets actually felt like they should feel. I focused on getting my lower back locked and curling the weight up with my back while pushing off my legs and staying over the bar. Have a look at the video below and tell what you think. My hips and shoulders come up together on the second set, but not the first.

I left it at that because it was relatively late and I was pretty wrecked. I am looking forward to freshening up for the competition in Belfast on Saturday week.
