As I got to 200, I had to switch from split jerk to push jerk to make the lift.

10 KB swings - 1.5 pood
10 burpees

Im usually pretty good with subs, but any idea of a good substitution for the sandbag half-moons? No sandbags and I was thinking about doing them with a kettlebell but not sure if that would work.
Matt Wichlinski 3 | 2008-09-02
Thor

you could use a 25kg bumper plate or the closest thing you have. But you should look into getting or making a sandbag for yourself, i got a cheap army duffel from e bay for $12, then filled a bunch of small heavy duty bags at about 4 pounds a pop. You'll thank yourself later for the extra grip and hand strength

Do I start each snatch pull rep from the floor or pull from the thigh only?
Greg Everett 6 | 2008-09-03
Thor -

Like Matt said, use a bumper plate and grip it on the sides.

Ryan -

Always from the floor unless some hang position is specified.

greg,

to address your suggestion last week regarding the discrepancy between my FS 1RM < OHS 3RM, i believe you're correct. my foot position is identical in the two, perhaps a bit narrower in the FS.

however, i have a pronounced forward lean in the OHS.

i was always under the impression (obviously false) that OHS required more core strength than FS, this can be compensated for by the forward inclination of the torso?

so ultimately, i need to stop worrying about my ratios and improve upon my embarrassing FS, i think.

thanks, greg.

best,

jerry

(Did this at Waverley gym - no platform so conservative in the b/h neck jerk)

Front Squat: 80kg x 3 x 10
Snatch Pull: 80kg x 3 x 3
B/h neck Jerk: 85kg - felt nice, fast and solid. Could have gone heavier.

Raining outside so no met-con. Hopefully do it tomorrow.
