Thanks for clarifying the point that "the notion that the arms do not elevate the barbell at all is not entirely true." I always feel like I'm helping it along a little when I pull myself under. Good to know I'm on the right track and not imagining it.

Snatched 115 with better form. Actually didn't land forward for once. Kept the feeling of heels back on the third pull as long as possible. it felt like jumping off of flat fleet rather than trying to extend all the way to my toes. Tried 125 but lost it somewhere. The bar didn't have the same "jump" as it did on the 115 and getting under was sluggish.

C&J 175. arms bend early when weight gets heavy. jerk is way forward.

My lifts today 115

-high hang clean + hang power clean - The first 4 sets were good the last set the high hang clean was crappy
-snatch - I was shocked I pulled the 155 out, since the last Max day I couldn't get 155 out to save my life!
-clean and jerk - Blah! My jerks were terrible, I'm guessing the heavy snatch grip push pressing for the ohs tired me out.
