Snatches and presses; the new Saturday Schedule.


Wasn't sure about anything today other than 24 kg snatches were going to be done first. After that it was a tossup. Want to get on the new schedule that has Tracy and I endurance snatching on Tuesdays and me pressing with Nick on Saturday morning. I had already pressed this week but didn't want to go from last Tuesday to next Saturday without press so I hoped I could sneak in a bit of double work without destroying my shoulders.

It turned out better than expected and both the snatches and presses were strong and easy.

Almost got my full hour stretchout in this morning but some distractions from a student in Tracy's class that was having some physical issues took some attention and I wasn't quite where I wanted to be in the sequence but oh well. At least I felt good and nothing was screaming at me.

Snatches
16 kg x5/5 x2
20 kg x5/5

24 kg x10/10 x 5 sets
100 reps

These were some of the best snatches I have done with the 24kg! Strength and power were fine, wind was solid and mechanics felt great. hands too, no stress at all. Just a bit muscularly fatigued from the weeks work but no worries. Could have done more sets but didn't want to be greedy.

Two KB Military press
16 kg x5
24 kg x 5 x 4 sets


this was a shock. how easy it was. And, as suspected, the cleans are the hardest part for me and only having to do one rep was nice. the presses felt very strong. Everything feels strong.

and Nick just KILLED IT, getting a solid set of 5 with double 32's the first time ever doing a double kb press and maybe having done single bell presses 2 or 3 times ever! Well done man, you killed it. Strong is strong,


Tactical pullups
4 sets of 4

wow, these were super easy as well and ALL the reps went chin above and almost to throat from the first rep. NICE! Shoulder extension was much better at the top too.


Ring extensions

5 sets of 6-8 reps. nice finisher.Let the new schedule begin!

Nice practice there Mr Rif =) and good presses from Nick, he is a lucky guy to have you as a training partner and teacher.

thanks Joakim, Nick is my best friend as well.Those 32 presses were a total surprise.He hasn't pressed anything for years and never done anything overhead.
all those heavy squats and snatches really translated well.
he ALWAYS shows up for training if he is town and that is worth Gold to me. A true training partner.

Nice work for both of you!

It's been fun and inspiring to follow your progress, and I enjoy hearing about your thought processes, too.

I also did 100 snatches with my 24kg yesterday. 5 sets of 10 with each hand. I'm trying to get my hands in shape, so I didn't time it.

I'm trying to work on my form when bringing the kb back down, but it's still not good enough I guess. My hands are pretty sore today. There's a huge difference between 16s or 20s and this 24!

Mark Reifkind said...

thanks Roland, and yes, there is a very big difference doing reps with the 24 and anything under it.

I came across a nice quote while re-reading Randall Gould's great China memoir China in the Sun the other day. Gould was a veteran member of the old China press corps before the war.
