Definitely feeling yesterdays workout. I missed the x2 on the 5th rep of the snatch complex. I also had to press out the a couple of the jerks. I probably should have used 10lbs lighter weight on both.

If she is actually "set" in this photo, shouldn't she get her chest up considerably?
Greg Everett 2008-02-06
PD -

If you're referring to the extension of her spine itself, yes, I'd like to see absolute extension (extension from neck to sacrum). But that's a flexibility/mobility issue, not something you can correct overnight.

If you're talking about the actual position of her torso, no. If she were to lift her chest more, it would force the hips down and the knees forward. That would place her shoulders behind the bar and the knees too far in front of it. In order for her to actually lift the bar past her knees, she'd have to either swing it around them, or pull her knees back out of the way, which would lift her hips and drop her chest and return her to this same position. Neither is desirable.

-Diesel Crew shoulder warmup
-First real workout since the 24th, the hope is that I will be able to get into the gym 4 times per week on a consistent basis.
-1/2 mile - just a warmup while waiting for the Senior fitness class to let out so I can use the Oly stuff.
-pushups - I'll be incorporating different variations or ring dips
-CA WOD - 5FEB2008
-Sn + OHS +MHSn - Oops! I only just realized as I'm typing that I was supposed to do power snatches, I remember being kind of confused since I thought a snatch + OHS was kind of redundant. (Note to self - Learn to read) My timing was all over the place today, haven't snatched in weeks, my wrist hurt at first but after a few it loosened up a little I need to reemmber to ice it when I get home tonight.
-MHCl + PP + jerk - My cleans were a bit off it feelt like I was jamming my wrist on the catch, and then my jerks were crappy
-400m repeats - not bad

I actually wrote in my blog after viewing this pic that my stance sucks!! I think I was just approaching the bar (as I recall) and would never have attempted a snatch from there!!
John Frazer 2008-02-06
