Snatch VO2 , walking lunges, parallel pushups, leopard crawls

Yes, Snatch Vo2. I thought since my press position and strength felt so good, and that my handstand has reappeared it might be a good time to test the snatch position.
Long story short, I was very pleased with the results. Not perfect as you can see in the video, but much better than the last time and, most important, no pain.

The overhead position overall is improving and I expect this too as well. I also did the snatches with my head up the entire time which I have never done before. It's helping here as well as in all my other moves.  This makes me very very happy that I could do this.

And, to be honest, I really didn't want to do swing vo2! in it's own way it's actually harder than snatch vo2 . Snatches are tougher cardiovascularly, but the swing work out is just HARD work, even with the light bell. Maybe even more with the light bell because you have to work so hard to make it move fast. There is little help from the bells weight to create inertia

morning roll stretch hang 20 min.

doing these slower and with more tension as I get stronger. they are really feeling good and my triceps are growing seemingly daily. :)
