thanks steve

the forward head drive is a product of the shoulder injury, when I don't do it it feels like the shoulder is going to fall apart. like the feeling of resetting a joint if you've ever had that feeling?

Monday Night Snatches: 14 May 07

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MyqxTAtBJA0

Sloppy - very sloppy -

- raise the hips too high on the first pull, (stupid dynamic start that I thought I had gotten rid of)
- Second pull not bad
- third pull - non existant
- OHS - Engaged from the hips rather than finished from the hips.

Need to do more snatches and overhead squats, I'm back squatting my snatch! I had seemingly corrected this problem but I think the shoulder injury has caused me to regress back to my old habits as a protective reaction.

Who knows maybe I'm just bad at this.

Was that really a BW snatch? If so I understand what you want to work on but still great to throw that much around knowing you have technique you can improve on.

Thanks for the videos.

yep that was bodyweight - I can snatch 70kg, which is 5kg over bodyweight right now. My technique is actually much better than that most of the time but I'm playing with a messed up shoulder so I'm really doing a bad job of keeping form. Even my cleans are shite, when normally they'd be better. Oh well my back squats and deadlifts are getting more practice these days.

Honestly bodyweight is getting to be fairly easy to lock out, getting it up there isn't an issue at all. I've got a long way to go before I'm any good at this.

Rip wants me to go to 300 next time. Mainly because at this weight this is not fatiguing post workout at all. Nor the next few days. In fact other than picking it up off the ground its not that hard. I think slow and steady makes you stronger.

Although here's one of my clients during his 17th session: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KUHCRt2QbM

What happened to the new box?

We decided last month not to renew our current lease. The rent was too high for the location and size. We had a great location lined up near Preston and Carling - then the owner rented out the space we wanted, after negotiations had started, without telling his agent and ours.

The same landlord offered to subdivide a bigger bay at the same location, we made an offer. . . .and he didn't even have the courtesy to decline it. That was weeks ago. Needless to say, we won't be dealing with that owner or agent again.

With little time left, we moved out of the Grenfell location and are ready to offer classes outdoors until we have a new box. We had always planned to offer several outdoor format camps this year anyways, and so we are taking a page from Dan John's Four Seasons of Training.

Our CrossFit classes will be outdoors, and our private training athletes have the option of having us come to your home or a park near you, whichever is most convenient for you.

That sucks about the deal falling through but it's for the best if they act like that right? Wouldn't want to get stuck in a lease with a shady landlord.
