Snatch work and clubs

Another way cool Maltese. Lats for days . Note the seriously hyperextended elbows. Gymnastis is SO good for the joints,lol.
Not the hardest training today but enough. Whenever I demo bent presses and level 2 skills my back and left shoulder always get more tired than usual( the right shoulder can't externally rotate enough for bent presses) and I was feeling it a bit today. Discretion is the better part of... and all that. So just sets of 5 today with Nick at a good I go you go pace.


16 kg x5/5x 2

20 kgx 5/5 x2

24 kg x5/5 x11 sets

x10/10 x 1 set

130 reps

6890 lbs

these felt fine except for some weak noises from the lumbar spine and sacrum reminding me that I did what I did yesterday and to be smart. I wanted 150 reps at least but hey, I want a lot of things I can't have, lol. Make haste slowly.

two hand clubbells

two hand arm cast

two hand barbarian

two hand shield cast/barbarian

one arm clean and arm cast

all with the 25 lber for sets of 5-8 reps. Very solid with the one arms, perhaps the most solid ever. All that pressing is paying off.

Yoga tomorrow!

Glad to see you still moving forward Sir!
I felt some creaking today around the elbow, bad news. Good news starting to own the Bulldog for TGU's ;) Still I will procede with caution.

Nice work! I need to get back to snatches to get to 50k. You are pulling away from me.
