Friday:
sn: Mills 20, hit up to 130#, better and better
c&j: nothing nothing nothing
fs: 195#x2, 185x2.
Same upper back rounding. All I can figure is that the snatches are killing my upper back.

Makes sense. Good volume and increasing intensity on the snatches is probably wiping out the other lifts.

Good work though.

Is the next day going to be 20 reps @ 135 or back to 130, then 135?

I like density stuff a lot. Especially when done for strength rather than strength endurance. Strength endurance stuff leaves me with so much doms it isn't really any good.

Same workout until I hit all my reps. I'd move up when I hit 135#.

I need to add in this approach for jerks until I can jerk what I can clean. Then full-on Mills 20/20 (20 snatches, 20 c&j). But still working up the work capacity.

This, plus reps at a set weight are my staple go-to workouts.

Thursday:
sn: started with M20, got bored, ramped up to a single at 125#, failed at 130#
j: worked up to 155#
fs: 195#x3, 185x4
Definitely off my peak. Working on fat loss again -- 5 more lbs would help a great deal, but have to earn it first.

Where are you failing on the snatch? On the catch or somewhere in between?

Just tired and under-fed.

Ate too much today so decided to workout. Wrong way to do things.

Shoulders starting to feel the snatches, so will be giving them a bit of a rest.

cl: up to 175#, failed at 185#. Pulling it high enough, but not fast enough under it.
fs: 195#x4, 175x4, bs 185x5. Last set was feeling like it wanted to be an all out set, but that's stupid on lower calories.

My body seems to be resisting going below 182-3#. I figure my body comp goal will be hit at 178ish but I've been down to this level a few times, and just resist. Might have to start actually obsessively planning and WAM.

Have a couple of trips coming up -- they generally help get through weight plateaus, since I don't eat much when travelling -- too much going on.

WAM... uh oh. Not a bad idea though.

Re: snatches. Makes sense they would start to act up. Even ramping volume after the shoulder issue and not doing them for a while could add up.

Good on you for being smart.
