Does anyone have any suggestions for patellar tendonitis? I thought mine was gone and it has begun to resurface again. I seem to aggravate it when I hit the bottom position doing the snatch and cleans. Back Squat, not so much.

More ice than you ever wanted to use. A TON of quad and hip flexor foam rolling and stretching, pre and post work, and every spare moment you have.. wiith ice after when possible. You may also get some help doing some glute activation exercises like x-band walks a few days/week, as well as adding some more hamstring work such as GHRs, reverse hypers and good mornings.

Thanks a lot. I will try it and hopefully, it should improve.

Power snatch 68k x1x5
Power C & J 82k x1x5
Second pull seems slow on snatches. I can't put my finger on the problem. Jerk is getting faster. Working on catching a little lower.

L Sits instead of planks
6x max effort with 30 sec rest
25 burpees (over small hurdle)

Missed the planks and reverse hypers the other day, so I put them in there. Sorry coach! Btw, my shoulders feel better in...well since ever I can remember, really happy about that!
