Notes #

I drank some and had my body weight in sushi last night so thought that’d end up affecting me more than it did. I felt like I was covering the bar more and longer on the snatches, which helped my extension and pop, as well as the sweep on the second pull. Shoulders were looser so I was able to catch fine up to 175. I really need to start doing snatch balances to get comfy catching more than 180. What was interesting is that I started to naturally move my feet – I thought I had jumped forward a bit but it turns out I just split a bit more, which was fine.

As for CJs, they were ok. Explosion was there and I was trying to cover a bit longer as well but the bar started crashing on me a bit. Readjusting my grip in the front rack before the jerk made them feel WAY better so I think I’ll continue doing that. It was hard to follow a cue but so I just adjusted to what felt comfortable. The jerks seemed pretty effective but the cleans took it out of me so much that I felt like I was faltering a bit. Have to focus on a wider stand on the jerks.
