2010-11-08 Week 2 Day 1
Came in a bit tired. Warmed up but left shoulder still bugged me a bit. No major or annoying shoulder pain occurred until the snatch PP came into play. I realized however that I was gripping too tightly and not allowing the bounce to carry through the bar upwards. The other problem (that I fixed on my last set, and executed perfectly) was that my core was not tight at all. Fixing both issues allowed me to snatch push press with no shoulder wincing at all.
I noticed the form on the snatch DL improved to the point where the exercise was easy and I actually did snatch pulls at 95kg. The key was core tightness with an emphasis on the lats, in addition to the existing emphasis I place on having the chest up and having the arms internally rotated. Lats engagement made it seem "lighter".
