Monday's matchplay

Today was a great chance to get some reps in. Myself, Wayne, Amy, Alex and Cathal did two seperate sessions where we got lots of reps in and had good fun to boot. Well done to Laura who got a 3kg pb in the Snatch with 55kg and to Amy who got a 79kg pb Clean and Jerk. Here is what I did today:

Snatch--4x2@40 1x2@60, 80 1x1@90, 90, 95

Clean and Jerk--1x2@80 1x1@80, 90, 100, 110

Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 60 1x1@80, 90, 90, 100

We then had an hour's break for a bit to eat. Wayne Snatched up to 95 and then 100 also with Cathal going up to 95kg and then 101 in the second Snatch session.

Snatch--1x2@40, 40, 60 1x1@80, 90, 97 which I missed strangley because I did not finish my pull. I then got it easily and then got 102. My lifts were pretty ugly because I was not quite able to lock my back on the day and that caused a chain reaction of things that do not normally happen, to just go and do that. I went back to 100 and promply missed the weight twice due to the reasons above. Annoying, but that is what fatigue does I suppose. I should have left it at the 102 and moved on.

Clean and Jerk--1x2@60, 60, 80, 90, 100, 110--I kept these very light because I was wrecked.

Front Squat--1x2@60, 100, 120, 130- This was teh first time I have Front Squatted in a long time and it felt great. I kept it very light, but the movement felt really nice.

In the final session Byrdie went up to 108 in the Snatch and 130 in the Clean and Jerk; as you will see below, he had more in the tank. Wayne went up to 103 and did a few Cleans with 120. Have a look at the video below and leave any constructive criticism you may have.

Alex got a big snatch PR also - 46kg. She and Amy are both pretty much superhuman as far as I can tell :)

Hope to catch you guys tomorrow.
