@Bill, nice try at 185!!!

Wednesday February 11, 2015

The snatch experiment continued. Worked on the "butt-up" (e.g., clean) snatch today with wide (collar-to-collar) grip, outer ring grip, and narrow grip. Narrow grip worked the best. Was doing the starfish-1/4 squat instead of split. Made it to 75kg again but it was awkward.

Then went back and tried regular snatches.
5 for 5 at 40k
5 for 5 at 50k
3 for 3 at 55k
2 for 2 at 60k
1 for 1 at 65k
1 for 1 at 70 k
1 for 1 at 72k
missed at 75k (but I was exhausted by this point)

I figure I'll mess around with a few more experiments but ultimately return to "regular" snatches....

[B]WU:[/B]
500m Row
100+ SUs
10 leg swings, each leg, both directions
10 Air squats

[B]WOD:[/B]
20 Min AMRAP:
15 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!)
20 Step ups (65#) 18 in box
25 Lunges (65#)
30 Sit-ups
35 Hand Release Push-ups
40 Double Unders (Subbed 120 SUs)

1 round + 15 Burpees (Yay! Burpees!!) + 20 Step ups (65#) 18 in box + 25 Lunges (65#) + 30 Sit-ups + 3 Hand Release Push-ups

[I]The step ups were the tough part of this. I did the 1st round in ~12 min. I sped up the pace on the 2nd round & got to the sit ups faster than the 1st round. This was kind of crazy because they are renovating the gym to get rid of the asbestos. All the equipment are in one half of the basketball courts! Things are going to be crazy over the next few weeks.[/I]

@JT - Sorry to hear this. At this point in our lives, it happens too frequently.

I've been skiing a lot and enjoying myself immensely. I had a revelation in my skiing last week on the third hard day and second powder day. Something clicked and I had a significant improvement in ability in the rough stuff and bumps. I'm still not good but I am better! ;)

The shoulder is not getting better; carrying skis, shoveling snow and falling occasionally aren't helping. I am probably going to need a trip to the ortho when this vacation is over. (Sigh)

Walked one mile in the balmy Miami heat and sunshine. Nice!

Both thighs and one butt check fell asleep during the walk. That can't be good.
