Nice work. When you jerk are going from the rack position and is the 32 mm a caliper pinch measurement?

Thanks.

When I list "j" that's a rack jerk. And yes, the 32 mm is a combined caliper measurement -- 12 abdominal, 20 thigh.

Pretty good snatch for being sore.

Crash day.
Sunday.
Sn: up to 115#, failed x2 at 125#
c&j: up to 145#, failed at 155#
bs: up to 225#, failed at 245# (!)

It was just a no oomph kind of day. Call it CNS fatigue, or whatever.

Metrics:
185.6#, ab+thigh 31mm, 11.8% (add a % or so I figure)
averages: sn: 126.6#, j: 150#

Last day before vacation. More no oomph.
Tuesday:
sn: up to 125#, failed at 135#
c&j: up to 145#, failed at 150# (!)
bs: failed at 255# (should have tried at 245#).

Metrics:
182.6, 31mm
Averages: bw: 184.4, lean mass: 162.5, sn: 125.8, j: 149.2

So after a week or so of this:

1) snatch seems unaffected, front squat went up, back squat about the same and quite variable, c&j and j variable and down.
2) BW, and bf% pretty constant: any variation in lean mass probably due to fluctuations in water, glycogen, and digestion more than anything else.
