24 kg Snatch Pr.

Well that's nice :)) Definitely feeling stronger again it was good to go into the gym with a firm intention on not coming out without a pr.It was just one of those days and I have learned to listen to that gut instinct much more and go with it; in either direction.

Warmups felt light and that is also a good sign and technique dropped immediately into place. I found myself using the modified corkscrew on my left and the classic over the top hardstyle punch through on the right. they dont have to be the same, God knows my right and left shoulders aren't.It worked very well and bell speed and power were high and that's what I wanted.
I'm starting to realize that I will be doing snatch vo2 work at some point with the 24 kg and that is very, very exciting-especially considering where I was last year. Cool.

20 kgx5/5

24 kgx8/8 x15 sets
240 reps Pr
12,720 lbs ( niice)

we went at our regular pace, I do my set, Rex does his, Nikko does a set of squats, rinse and repeat till the sets are done. I would guess it's about 2-3 minutes between sets, which is fine. I rush around enough on Wednesdays. I like the recovery as it allows me to put much more power into each set as well as do more total sets.Varying recovery times is good.

Arm Cast/ shield cast combinations
15 lb CB x 5 mins of arms casts and shields, switching every 5 reps. Did this three times. very therapeutic for the shoulder and great for the arms and rib muscles as well.

datsit! Bikrams tomorrow, can't wait.

Strong work, as usual. I'm waiting for the day when you announce you're going to start competing.
