Snatch - heavy single (73, 75f)
PR by one kg with 73. Got 75 (bodyweight) overhead, but lost it too far back.

Clean & jerk - heavy single (85, 90f)
Back squat - heavy single (117)

Did the CF WOD instead of ab work.

Have a question, just started the routine here on Cathletics, the last week or two. I notice I have shoulder pains when doing the jerks. I never noticed this before when doing them when the CFIT WOD called for them. Granted I don't have bumper plates here, and no coaches watching me but I don't think my form is injury prone. Just wonder if this is natural? I really haven't done too many rack jerks or this many before....thanks..

Tough day... Im tired as hell. Think I may need to take an extra rest day this week.

Snatch: 145#
C&J: 155# (This was a warm-up and when I did my first c&j at 185, my shoulder went caput and called it a day with those)
BS: 265# (last weeks 305 was fairly easy, but struggled with this weight today so I think I was a bit tired)

Rest day tomorrow is sorely needed.

Squib - First, check your overhead position - make sure you're fully retracting your shoulder blades and then elevating them. Push your head through your arms and let your torso lean forward slightly to place the bar over the base of your neck. You may also try widening your hand placement for overhead work - that should place less pressure on the AC joint. Ice the shit out of your shoulders when/if you can, and make sure to get a lot of shoulder warm-ups like shoulder/arm circles focusing on shoulder blade mobility, dislocates, etc. If you need to, back off the volume of overhead work a bit too until your shoulders get a little more conditioned for this kind of training.

Snatch: 155, still stuck here. I think I just need to finish my 2nd pull...
C&J: 220(PR), went for 225 but not enough left in the tank.
BS: 275, 295(F)
GHS: 3 x 25

Snatch : 75kg PR

C&J : 90kg, 100kg (missed the jerk)

Not enough time to do the C&J and squats with proper rest, doing it in a rush sucked big time !
