Notes: I was looking forward to today when I saw it on my schedule. Snatches, jerks, and cleans.....sounds like my kind of party. I have been working on my technique in the snatch and I felt a few times it really hit smoothly, while a few other times I was caught of position. One of the biggest problems I am still noticing is the excessive jump back that sometimes leaves the bar out in front. If a problem doesn't show up in training, then you have nothing to work on, that's the way I see it. I can address it here, and clean it up before competition time.
I was a bit pressed for time so I jumped up quickly in the jerk. This was not a good idea, since I think the last jerk I did was about two months ago. It felt very heavy and my footwork was a bit off. Hit 245 for a triple which I was pleased with, but the last set was sloppy. Here, I feel that my feet are catching before I am fully locked out. Once again, something that I can address with some light tech work.
Hang squat cleans were cheesecake today. I felt the bar falling into the perfect position every time. This is a big confidence booster for me. The only time I had trouble was regripping the bar a few times. I think I could have hit something even heavier today but I will have to wait until next time.
To all of my friends, fans, and clients who support me, belated merry christmas to all. As the year winds down, I have to remain focused on the task at hand, but once the new year hits, it's countdown to carnage....2.0!
