Training 12-08-2013 new snatch PR

Taking a week off to rest and heal my wrist was a good thing as I started out this week with a new PR.

Today started out absolutely rubbish.  It took me 13 reps before I got my first snatch down and that was with a lower weight than the one I started out with. Once I got the technique down, again, however things were suddenly looking much brighter and I my reps continued to look beautifully. Things looked so beautiful that I ended up setting a new full snatch PR with 40 kg and I would probably have got 42.5 kg as well if I hadn’t torn several callous at this point. Instead of the full snatch I ended up doing Power Snatch with 42.5 kg.

Training 02-08-2013 New C&J PR fuck yeah.

Today’s training went really well I managed to get up to a half decent Front Squat having sorely neglected my squats all week. More importantly however I got a new Clean & Jerk PR by 5kg. I feel that was got me over my mental hurdle at getting under the bar at 60kg. I still have a lot of work to do on the technique particularly I need to pay close to attention to not letting the bar drift away from the body as I enter the 2nd pull. I have to work on letting the bar touch/bounce on my thighs.

I have potentially a bit wrist tendionitis in my left hand. Hopefully its nothing and I am fit to work on Monday but I will probably skip the hand gripper training for the rest of the week just in case. I have felt a little nagging hurt when it is flexed back as in the catch position for the clean. It went away after warming up and I didn’t feel it during training however.
