A. Snatch: 6x1 @80%; rest 2min (165lbs.)
75 Power Snatches(75lbs.)
Notes: Snatching is off. I am a bit concerned but I keep reminding myself that I am at the end of a cycle and I am not near my max potential. Off the ground, the weight feels very heavy. I was power snatching this weight touch and go for 6 reps only a month ago. I guess that is what a training cycle does to you. Doesn't help that both of my shoulders are banged up, leaving me less aggressive under the bar. Foot work is off still too. Randy was ok. I did 15 reps unbroken from the beginning then started breaking it into reps of 7 or 8 and taking as little time between sets as possible. I wasn't very winded from this workout, my grip was the limiting factor. I also focused on keeping consistent form throughout, dropping under the bar on most reps and squatting the weight back up rather than finishing with my arms. My back tightened up a little bit during the workout, but it wasn't bad.
