I appreciated that 8rpm was a starting point for a progression to something more ballsy. Would you say that 10-12 would be a good (and steady) average Catherine?
Oddly I find C&J punishes my shoulders and upper back in a way that snatches don't. I sometimes do 50s (25 right, 25 left, no putting the bell down) and though the conditioning is there the body doesn't enjoy it.
PS I misunderstood in the first place and assumed we were talking snatches not C&J so my comments earlier are all out of context anyway.
