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.
