Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 4, Day 3

Clean & Jerk - 60% x 2+1, 65% x 2+1 x 2, 70% x 2+1 x 3
60%(135)x(2+1)
65%(146)x(2+1)x2
70%(157.5)x(2+1)x3

Clean Pull - 90% (of cln) x 2 x 2, 95% x 2 x 2
90%(202.5)x2x2
95%(214)x2x2

Front Squat - 70% x 2 x 5
70%(182)x2x5 - Video looked like I was dropping forward on rep 1.


Video (NSFW, lyrics I think): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3cnpnJTFURw
__________________________

1. Did my FS look okay?
2. How do I prevent the bar path from being so forward on my cleans? Do I need to just actively keep it back, closer to me by pulling on it?

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 4, Day 4

Power Snatch - 70% x 2 x 5
70%(100)x2x5 - These felt forward

Snatch Push Press + Overhead Squat - 70% x 3+1 x 4
70%(115.5)x(3+1)x4 - These felt fine, but something looks off about my overhead squat positioning

Press - 3 x 5
(120-115-115)x3x5 - Something was off, I think my elbows were too low, I was leaning back a little

Video (WFS): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9LGbrUx_AI

__________________________________________________ ________

Questions:
1. Why do my snatches seem forward? Do I need to pull the bar closer to me when I punch with the hips (i.e. stronger third pull)? Is it desired or not to jump back like I have been doing recently? If not, how can I prevent it?
2. Does anything seem off regarding my OHS?

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 4, Day 6
Snatch - 65%x2, 70%x2x2, 75%x1x2, 80%x1x3
65%(107)x2
70%(115.5)x2x2
75%(124)x1x2
80%(132)x1x3

Clean & Jerk - 65%x2+1, 70%x2+1x2, 75%x1+1x2, 80%x1+1x3
65%(146)x2+1
70%(157.5)x(2+1)x2

Back Squat - 75% x 2 x 4

__________________________________________________ ___________

Notes/Questions.

1. Snatches - Bar catapulting forward when I attempted to sweep the bar with my hips (Read: I for some reason was not punching the bar today with my hips, it just wasn't happening), and I still seemed to be jumping back a little. Problem was slightly fixed when I actively leaned back/pulled the weight back when I hit hip extension. But I'm not sure how to make the lift overall better.

2. Cleans - Bar was going forward. Am I right in thinking I just need to wait longer (a split second) before sweeping the bar with my hips and getting under it? Do I just need to pull back more?

Video (NSFW, one f-bomb I think): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gjp2U9MtbY

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

On snatches, punch hips more, especially as the weight goes up. Looking better at lighter weights, just work on consistency.

On cleans, work on reaching full extension; don't cut the pull short. Bend back knee on jerk.

Overall better than the last video I saw a few weeks ago.

Thanks for your help

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

The biggest thing for me on your snatch is the fact you are constantly behind the bar. It won't sweep nicely if you don't stay over it. Shoulders need to be on top or in front, not behind (as yours seem to be).

Similar in the clean, shoulders are over in the heavier lifts because you hip shoot. Work on strengthening your back erectors to stay strong and rigid.
Not getting full extension either. Finish the pull.

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

Week 4, Day 7 - Rest

Week 5, Day 1

NOTE: Catalyst Athletics says to take the weights up for the last set if you're feeling good. I was feeling great, so for snatches and push presses today I took it up for the last 2 sets

Snatch - 60%x3, 65%x3, 70%x2, 75%x2x4
60%(100)x3
65%(107)x3
70%(115.5)x2
75%(124)x2x2
(132)x2x2 - Went up, felt good

Snatch Pull - 100% (of sn) x 3 x 4
100%(165)x3x4 - These got a little bit better. Something "clicked" today. Still lots of improvement to be made though

Back Squat - 70%x3, 75%x3x4
70%(200)x3
75%(214)x3x4

Push Press - 70%x5, 75%x5, 80%x3x3
70%(126)x5
75%(135)x5
80%(145)x3
(152.5)x3 - Went up
(160)x3 - Went up

Questions:
1. For my push press, it looks to me like I come too far forward (on my knees) when I receive the bar for the next rep. Am I?

Re: My Video Training Log (For Critique Purpose)

On snatches, toward the heavier reps, your hips slow down and don't punch the bar aggressively. It is really important to be consistently correct. So you might think about backing down 5kg in order to get it right.

As a minor detail, you need to look forward or up on all lifts.

Overall this is all good, hard work. Keep at it.

Was this in regards to the full snatch video from two days ago? Or the power snatch video yesterday?

Thanks for the constant feedback

Cheers, Daniel
