February 7, 2017 I Wanna Go Fast!

Today was all about fast snatches. The snatch has been a long time weakness of mine. In meets its always been take what you can get and make it up in the clean and jerk. While this method has worked quite well and works well for others, I’d rather beat people in both lifts. It’s been a long process getting the lift to look and feel right, but it’s starting to click and feel snappy again.

Snatch Push Press + OHS: 2+1 at 45, 55, 63, 68

Snatch off Blocks: 2×3 at 63, 2×2 at 68, 1×2 at 73, and a single at 78

Don said the 78kg snatch was the fastest he’d seen me move, which needless to say made me grin ear to ear because all I’ve heard the past two weeks is “speed up as you go” or “you gotta move”.

Next up was Power Position Block Snatches: I did several triples at 55kg

1rm Front Squat with a 5s pause: 113kg

This lift felt super smooth for it to be my first heavy front squat in six weeks, and I did it in my metcons! Get you some of that!

Snatch Pulls w/ 6s eccentric: 3×3 at 85kg
