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!

sn - 105#, hit the first, failed at the second two. pulled the bar to shoulder height, but still having problems getting under. c&j - 135#, hit all 3 pretty easy. perhaps a new pr soon! fs - 155#, failed and knew the others would fail too. dropped to 135 for 2.

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.
Greg Everett 9 | 2008-01-02
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 Mike Donnelly
Scotty Hagnas 11 | 2008-01-03
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.
