Max Vo2 day, the speed is back.
Really good workout today,coming off of last weeks slump very well. Getting the right position on my foot as I start is proving to be as vital for my swings and snatches as it was for my squats and deadlifts. I am not thinking at all about my groove not just being able to focus on being as fast and powerful through it as I can. Much better.
As Nick said Saturday ," you really ARE a slow learner, aren't you". Why yes Nick, but I am tenacious as hell ,too.
Max Vo2 Snatches with 16 kg
42 sets of 7
HR ave 170-179
Being flat on my feet made the groove really solid and being more aggressive at the top of the snatch really picked up my speed and accelleration throughout each set.As soon as the bell got overhead I punched it back over as soon as it touched my wrist. I've been waiting too long at the top. Pushing it back over the top fast pulls me into the next rep and really keeps the momentum up. I was finishing 2 seconds ahead of the 15 seconds again.This is what I need to do 8 reps a cycle.
