Snatches feel better every time. I’d go so far as to say that snatches have surpassed cleans as my favorite? I think I just feel like I’ve accomplished so much more with snatches than with cleans. I feel pretty confident with snatching and 90% doesn’t feel hard at all. With cleans, I have no idea what my elbows are doing or why my hips are doing all the wrong things at any given moment. I could say something about being pretty confident I have that 100# snatch in the bag pretty easily, but I don’t want to jinx it.
Clean pulls, even though such a short movement, are somehow the most fucking difficult thing ever. I have a tendency to overextend my back on these, and instead of getting tall and really shrugging up, I tend to lean back. The first 145# was sort of disastrous, but the second one was much better. 155# is murder. Jess pushed me go to go 165# instead. Jess, no. I do probably have a 155# clean in me, if I can time it right.
I’ve done the overhead complex at heavier weight, but I wanted to really hit all my positions, especially the dip, correctly. I’m getting better with it, but I still jerked forward on the set of 100#. Probably just a bit tired, but I hit 105# really well.
Next week is max out week, eeee! We’re all talking how we’re really sad the class is coming to an end. I can’t help but agree. I feel like we’ve just scratched the surface on potential and I just want to desperately keep going with coaching.. We’ll see what happens with this. I might just start a Catalyst cycle on my own?
