Back To Work.

October 17, 2012

Here’s me snatching 123 from the deficit this morning.

I’m not sure, but I think that’s a 3kg. PR for me.  But that’s not really fair because this isn’t a regular exercise in my routine.

While watching this video, you might notice a few things:

1) I’m fatter.

2) I’m balder.

3) My trap-cut shirt is awesome.

4) I’m sitting back on my heels a lot better than usual.

This exercise is great because it really forces you to do that, but this is also something I’m really trying to focus on while working from the floor as well; to the point where I’ve changed up my start somewhat.  I’ve only been able to start practicing the lifts again for like 2 weeks or so, but I think this is going to be a permanent change for me.  I was able to snatch 135 last Friday.  While that isn’t exactly great, it’s still pretty good for how weak my back is right now.  I’ve got precisely ZERO power from the hang, so that tells me that what I’m lacking in strength, I’m making up for in solid mechanics.  This, I’m fine with.  Getting stronger is the easy part.
