My favorite day, one because I have 3 amazing training partners who offer so much in so many ways, I get to listen to Rif, and last because its snatch day.
The snatch is such an elegant, athletic and animalistic movement. It is a skill and once the skill comes together the possibilities are endless. Today we had high rep sets with a bell that is say 50% of my max snatch weight at this stage in my current training, so I know its going to be fast and fluid and with the high reps get the heart pumping and lungs breathing.
This was a PR for sure with this bell in total volume, reps/set, etc. And it felt great! I certainly felt the heart and lungs working but I also felt everything flowing, it all coming together with a speed and grace. (Sorry forgot video, I was just so in the moment, haha). Really pleased with today! I finished strong knowing I had a bit more in the tank but stopped at the right moment/place.

Another PR! Was stoked. Warming I was not sure I was even going to use the 45 but in my second set I just felt things come together. The 45 was easier on the first side, had a few ugly reps on the second side but pulled through. Very happy to handle this bell with volume.

Strict, dead hang and straight legged. A first across the board. Very pleased with the evolution of this movement. Way stronger and more connected than ever. On last 2 sets held a hanging L-sit and even added a Hanging L pullup on the final set. :-)
Great day, sure can tell I am done with Board exams!!!
