Training: 3/29/2013

HRV: 102 (-3/green)
HR: 50


A. OH Squat: 5 x 3 @33X0, rest 2 min (65% of snatch all sets) (145)
B. Tall Snatch: 3 x 3, rest 2 min - use a weight allowing sharp turnover
C. High Hang Snatch: light tech work

Notes: Body felt tight today, especially my shoulders.  I have to remember to warm those up well on Saturday.  Left wrist was also bugging me during the first few sets of overhead squats, but once it got warm, it was much better.  

Overhead squats felt good despite the tightness.  I feel my position is lightyears better than it was a year ago.  Power snatched the bar overhead each time to get a little tech work in.  Noticed that I am now extending up, but I am not keeping my hips back.  Need to figure out how to extend up, without letting my hips fly forward.   

Noticed in tall snatches that if I pulled my shoulders way back, it made it almost impossible to get under the bar.  Keeping the shoulders over the top more allowed the arms to stay relaxed and lead to a quicker turn-over.  Just used the bar here because my right biceps tendon was fired up.

Hit a few snatches at the end focusing on keeping the shoulders stacked at the final extension point.

For tomorrow, I have no expectations.  I would love to say that I want to hit XYZ, but I am beginning to realize that when I go in and expect something to happen, I am not in the moment.  I am going to feel it out lift by lift and just do the best I can and be happy to be able to do what I am doing.
