Did yesterday's 100% attempts today. Important note--these were done with my new holiday presents, OL shoes and the adidas OL pants from Dynamic-Eleiko...

Snatch: 75kg PR (+6kg!)
C&J: 97.5kg PR (+6kg!), will break the 100kg mark next time!
Front Squat: 124kg (old max FS estimated at ~111kg, so an approx. 13kg PR!)

Happy Day! Glad I didn't do any extra metcon in the last couple days, even though I planned to.

It's gotta be 'da shoes...

Snatch 130, hit all three, hips were at parallel or slight above, then lowered below for full depth.
C&J, 185(F), 185, 185(F). Last one was weird, the bar came up and hit me in the adam's apple and freaked me out a little.
WOD from Tuesday, 2:26 and 2:48. For the second round, I did the box jumps backwards and jumped backwards onto a shorter box. Fun!

Greg, at the heavier weights, during the second pull and as I scoop, my heels inevitably come up too soon and I end up launching the bar forward a little. I have been practicing transitioning the bar slowly from below the knee to mid thigh to the "explosion" point(hang?) and in reverese to feel the positions and keep my heels down during the scoop. At the top explosion position, my knees are flexed past my toes and I feel a considerable load on my quads. Is that correct?

What can I practice to keep my heels down and get my body to a full upgright position before all the extension?

XX -

If you mean you're practicing the scoop slowly, don't. Let that happen naturally, which it will only do at full speed. Try extensions (aka power shrugs) from different hang levels starting high and working lower, focusing on staying on your heels longer.
