Snatch up to 115 LB's
C&J same
FS up to 215 LB's NEW PR! Beat my last 100% by 15 LB's. I stopped at 215 as I felt my back begin to round over as I stood up.

My thumb is so sore this morning I couldn't hold the bar for the O/Lifts at all. I tried not using a hook grip but that didn't really help.

I am officially on a rest week, so see you fellows in 7 days!

Snatch (70% x 1 x 4): 50kg x 1 x 4

Lowered all weights to knee level, didn't drop them today.

So, my snatch went up so much mostly due to my warming up w/ Tall Snatch/Snatch complexes in order to improve my speed.

Is there something I could do to ensure that I go to full extension on the 2nd pull? Apparently I keep shorting it on both the clean and snatch.

Jeff -

You can try power snatch + snatch during your warm-up. Make sure your power snatch is exactly the same as your snatch. That should help force a full extension, but don't get lazy on the pull-under. You can also try high hang snatch + snatch. Or pwr + high hang + snatch.

That was brutal. Nothing was working right. Felt like everything was off tonight. Timing was off, felt sluggish and slow. Ugh

Sn: 105
C&J: 145
FS: 170

finished up with some light complexes.
On to stretching

Ugh... my experience sounds just like Mike's.
SN: seemed ok warming up, but failed 3 times at 135. 125 was ok. Bar was plenty high, just no confidence to drop under.
C&J: Here, I balked at getting under even 190.
FS: 260x1 Made this, but a grind.
Press 125x2
Stretched and called it a day.

Snatch: 70-72.5-75(f). Didn't get it high enough. Pb 72.5

Cheers, Pete
