Match PR Snatch

Olympic lifting class at 6pm and then regular at 7pm. We worked up to heavy snatches and I got up to 145#, matching the PR I set on Sunday. Nailed it on the first try though, compared to 4 attempts, just 2 days ago. Went for 155# but didn’t have the confidence in it and bailed on the pull. Did some clean and jerk work as well and stopped at 185#, doing a few singles there. I’m really enjoying the drilling and can feel a difference already in my technique.

Warm-up

Tabata Mash-up

  • Side Plank
  • Mountain Climbers

Strength

5×5 Weighted Pull-ups

Today was the best I’ve ever done at these. Maybe because it’s been a few weeks and my pull-ups have felt really good lately. I used a 8# DB, 10# DB, 12# DB, 15# DB, and 20# KB without missing any reps. I don’t think I’ve gotten through all 5 reps on the last set using a 15# DB for the last two sets before, so getting all 5 at 20# was a big improvement.

WOD

  • 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
    • SDLHP (55# KB)
    • KBS (55# KB)
  • 2m Rest
  • 50 Ring Rows with 10 Star Jumps EMOTM

I finished the first part at 4:20, pretty much going unbroken except for some transition breaks as I adjusted my stance. The ring rows killed me as usual. I suck at them and resorted to pretty shitty technique to get them done. My total time including the rest period was 10:24, but I was 2# above Rx since all of the 53# KBs were in use.

Finisher

100 Quarter Get-ups (35# KB)

I switched sides doing 10 at a time. I think it took about 6 minutes.
