This was a great, I mean great! workout. Today I could feel the strength, the energy, the instinct of the Warrior Diet in full effect, 10 days into the program. My re-committing to the lifestyle of the Warrior diet and the rest (took Friday/Monday off of lifting/training) really showed. I am living the words I preach and practicing daily, this is the essence of life, practice what you preach and philosophically feel daily.
Fast, powerful, a good flip, good hip tension at the top and no issues with hands, grip, etc. This bell felt light and that is a first in some time doing the Snatch. The down cycle really helped to find my groove, like Rif said it would. Great coaching, great listening and here are the results. As Keats Snideman mentioned on his blog about great coaches, I am thankful I have one the fits that category and I am grateful that I opened my mind and saw the forest through the trees to accept his generous gift. The proof is in the pudding
Yes, I did the beast with two 24's! Super excited!

Focused on 1 side at a time this rest makes a difference. This is strength training, resting to allow optimal strength is a key. Leaning forward early helped me to discover my balance and not fight the stability of the move throughout which made me stronger. A huge factor. I feel really good about this technique application and I will apply it to the beast
This is TRAINING! Build, disect, challenge, improve, listen, exchange (ideas), push, back off, work, wave, do it!
