Definitely a fav,love any oly lifting,but snatch is the best ,if ye can get it right !

Comment #6 - Posted by: Pedro Barrera,Scotland at June 16, 2009 5:47 PM

have to ask... Why hang power snatch instead of just snatch?
Just curious. Thanks.

Interesting!

Brendan made me demo hang power cleans today and I did 10 in a row with 115 pretty easily. I think all the demoing from 6am to 730pm adds up to a few workouts!
And I did 4 muscle ups in a row again... but I just can't get 5 yet! :/

Comment #9 - Posted by: AllisonNYC_CrossFit Obsession at June 16, 2009 5:55 PM

Whats a good sub if your form isn't ready for a heavy day?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Alex Amat at June 16, 2009 5:55 PM

Thats not really part of the Babylon ruins... That structure was built by Saddam thousands of years later to attract more visitors right outside of the main city. Still a cool pic though.

Question,

My over head squats and snatch's are pretty underdeveloped and I'm afraid ill injure myself if I go for one rep maximums due to my poor form. Does anyone have suggestions for a replacement workout and/or a developmental exercise to replace this WOD?

Never tried the snatch. What a way to start over again.

Comment #13 - Posted by: Daniel Krull AKA "Franiel" at June 16, 2009 5:57 PM

#12,the hang power snatch is a good exercise help you snatch.and you dont have to overhead squat it.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Eric Egan ~ M/34/172lbs/5`8 at June 16, 2009 6:00 PM

Bunn #12

Your best bet would be to start off with an appropriate weight and use tomorrow as a day to develop the form. Watch the videos on the website tonight or before you go tomorrow to work out and try to pick up some pointers out of them. Form is everything in these kind of lifts, and you need to be confident or you're right you will injure yourself. Even just use the bar if that's all you can do until you get good form and don't let your ego get in the way.

Wqhats the diff between hang snatch and hang power snatch?

Comment #19 - Posted by: nicholas at June 16, 2009 6:30 PM

This is going to be interesting. I'm stoked about going heavy on a technique lift...maybe.

#19 Nicholas: the difference between hang snatch and hang power snatch is that w/hang snatch you catch at the bottom of the squat position. If "power" is indicated you can catch in just a partial squat position or even a little dip. Watch the vids on exercises and demos- they are a great resource!

this is a tough one for me because of ROM issues in my left shoulder. Anyone have tips besides the normal stretching?

Comment #24 - Posted by: steve at June 16, 2009 6:53 PM

Great... now I'm psyching myself out of it. I really need an olympic lifting coach but the old CF gym I went to would only do METCON and no olympic lifting. What should I do? Thanks.

Just finished Crossfit Kids Cert at Brand X. What an incredible bunch of people. Again, people from all over the world here in Ramona hoping to take back this knowledge to improve the future lives of children in their towns, cities, schools and orphanages. This is the future of CrossFit. What amazing athletes this program is producing. We would have been proud to have been a parent of any of the Kids involved over the weekend. What Jeff, Mikki and their inspiring team have produced is something we should all be so thankful for.
We are grateful to have been coached by the Martins and their staff and will endevour to hold ourselves to their high standards in all we do in the future.
Thanks again to all at CrossFit Kids HQ

Sorry but I couldn't wait for the next rest day to post this. The picture doesn't display obviously but the text puts it pretty succinctly.

Gotta' love transparency.

Ah yes. The privileges of royalty...

All Hail Queen Nancy's 757

The Jet is a USAF Boeing 757.


*And they STILL want to talk about Sarah's clothing??

*MADAME PELOSI*
Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small private jet that comes with the Speaker's job...no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200 seat jet that could get her back to California without stopping!
Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone what Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American Taxpayers, for the thousands of gallons of fuel every week.
Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California , cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000 one way!
As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday Night.' Cost to us is another $60,000. Folks, that is$480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this war...it might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours
I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.
Madame Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires.
These people are nuts.
If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list!
Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel!
One wonders what her total package cost us? And she wants to tax OUR Ira's & 401K's.....

YOU WILL NEVER SEE THIS IN ANY NEWSPAPERS IN THE COUNTRY!

i remember seeing an athlete profile on Josh Everett and seeing him doing split snatches. becauase i've never been taught to snatch, i find split snatches a lot easier and can do them for significantly more weight. any tips (other than attending a Cert) on how to improve my full snatch?
i'll do this WOD in the morning. sleep well, planet earth!

Bummer you didn't have access to Oly lift training at your old CF gym. Watching videos of people working with Coach Burgener and others has convinced me that it's relatively tough/slow going to go it "alone." Right now I'm making due with talking to strength and conditioning coaches when I get the chance, watching the videos over and over, reading Bill Starr CFJ articles (he learned on his own), working light, and using a video camera to see what I'm actually doing.

Depending on who you talk to, some people believe in starting by getting solid at something like the hang power clean before taking on any of the snatch variations, while others are likely more liberal about mixing things up early on. I tend to be pretty conservative about avoiding forming bad habits by working heavy or when tired early in the process of learning speed lifts. So no major advice here, just some thoughts. Good luck.

Cycle #3 of the Playoff Beard Party Bus Challenge

No subs or scaling. Same factor for males as the Back Squat: weight lifted by men will be multiplied by 2/3.

Warm up thoroughly, and stay safe!

Comment #37 - Posted by: Bunn at June 16, 2009 8:56 PM

I wonder how Ishtar would feel about soldiers doing HSPUs on her gate (or replica there of).

Judging by the fact that she was the goddess of war (as well as fertility/love/sex) I think she might just be ok with it.

If you like ancient mythology/religion http://www.sacred-texts.com/ane/ishtar.htm

She seems to be alot like the celtic Morrigan

Was just looking at some of the videos and stumbled across "Josh Everett & Sevan" under "Crossfit Games." I was wondering if this video was a joke or whether Josh Everett was serious.

Sorry guys just couldn’t help myself here…

You find yourself at Babylon,
Frustrated with the wait,
So nail a handstand pose
In front of Ishtar gate!
With Mushussu and some Bulls,
The pic will be the rage,
Throw it on an email,
And they’ll post it to Main Page!
But we’re all left to wonder,
Might you ponder, think, and stew:
If Mushussu did do HS push-ups,
How many could they do?

You can take it out on me during CFE...

Comment #50 - Posted by: Jon Schmalensee at June 16, 2009 11:00 PM

I was just itching to do this after a 4 day break so I just went on ahead and did it early anyways. This was brand new to me so I just used it for practice.

if it even matters, I was doing:

95
115x2
95x2
115x2
65
75
75

I kept on moving the weight up and down because I was getting annoyed by how the snatch was looking like a mixture of a clean and jerk which I like to call a "CATCH". I could of went higher in weight but the form just looked awful! Once I get used to the movement, then I'll go for 1 rep maxes but not right now. I have to learn the technique.

Since I had plenty of energy, I went to working on my hang power cleans and cleans. At least I'm finally getting the 135 cleans. I'm finally learning how to get under the bar.

PROPS TO THA FRAT!!!

It's been a pleasure training with you guys. We need to knock out a team grinder soon.

ABSOLUTELY!

Comment #53 - Posted by: jpatrick at June 16, 2009 11:26 PM

GOD I LOVE CROSSFIT! My first full WOD!

CFWU almost made me puke...this thing is for real! Hesitant about my form, so was kind of all over the board:

M/39/5'8'/175

105/110/115/120(F)/120/120/125/130(F)/125/130/130(F)/130(F)/125/130

Then worked on Clean form and HSPU. Can't wait until tomorrow!

Comment #54 - Posted by: Martin B at June 17, 2009 12:29 AM

Sheesh - with all these ME days you'd think that Crossfit was a strength and conditioning program or something! ...

For all those wondering about subs or progressions I could recommend nothing more strongly than the Burgener Warm Up. There's vid kicking around somewhere on the site (can you guess where?). Once you have worked through that and checked out any other vids that might seem appropriate start light (PVC pipe or a broomstick would be good) and work on getting the movement down. As you start to groove it, increase weight slowly - 5lbs at a time is plenty.

Cheers, kempie

Comment #55 - Posted by: kempie at June 17, 2009 1:58 AM

I only have dumbbells, so I do 1-db power cleans, for each arm:

50x5/60x3/70x2/70/70/70x2/70/70/70/70/70/70

Then isometric muscle control/contraction and wheel rollout to planks, four sets.

Comment #56 - Posted by: Jason at June 17, 2009 2:11 AM

115 all 10 sets

Comment #57 - Posted by: cosmo at June 17, 2009 2:15 AM

question about training too much:

I normally do 3 - 4 WODs per week with a 4-6 mile run 1 or 2 times in the morning. Additionally, I swim around 1500 - 2000 yards at lunch. Normally I take both weekend days off unless there is a long weekend (military). Am I training too much without enough recovery? I'm headed in the direction of completing a 1/2 distance triathlon or sprint distance.

XO comment #57 - Are you training too much? I've myself that question too. Mostly you need to listen to your body. If you are feeling tired and cranky all the time - that is a good indication that you are over-training and your body is not recovering well.

But let me get your training schedule straight: You are training for a sprint distance triathlon 750m swim/20k bike/5k run and your training for this is 3 WODs, 2 longish runs and 5 longish swimming days per week? (I say longish here because these are longish relative to your race distance)

Two comments for you: why are you swimming so much? and Where is the bike component of your training? While it is true that most of the pro races are won on the run, the bike is where the greatest portion of your time will be spent (during the race). The swim is relatively the least important part of the race. So unless swimming totally your weakness - I would spend less time on it. For a bit more balance, and answers to how much you should be training I recommend Brian Mackenzie's crossfit endurance website: www.crossfitendurance.com. He has some great recommendations on how to work endurance training into a crossfit schedule. Good luck.

Comment #79 - Posted by: DD at June 17, 2009 5:53 AM

Had a good morning, started with Company PT. A few circuit drills followed by a slower 2.5 mile run then headed over to the Gym to Snatch it up.
65-75-85-95-105-115-125
Completed a various number of Burpees in between each rep for day 54 of the 100 day Burpee challenge. I fell rested and ready to hit this set of 3 WODs after taking a set off (but I did Nasty Girls) and worked on stretching and ROM.
Thank you CrossFit and everyone who gives advice and supports the community.

88...

88 is easy but I failed at 93. I think it was a mental block because of the number. I got scared, didn't get under and didn't try it again. Lame.

Anyone around the central New Jersey area know of an affiliate or gym to train? I am at Robert Wood Johnson in Piscataway and the nearest gym I saw was 35 minutes away in Hamilton. I cannot believe there isn't a gym in New Brunswick for all the Rutgers students. Please email any helpful information: steve.hand15@gmail.com

Thanks,

3x CFWU

Oops did 7 instead of the rxd 10. Form was aweful. didn't realize it was ok to have a little bit of a squat when one catches the bar and so "caught" it standing fully erect, last few ended up pressing the last 6 inches or so.
111, 111, 111, 121F, 121, 121F, 111

Last two were muscle snatches. Warmed up with 10 C2B pullups, 10OHS w/broomstick, 10 clapping pushups, 20 sec l-sit, 10back/hip ext and Burgener warmup.

B: 85,95,105PR,105,95,95
Technique was lacking but if better could have gotten more, 105 was well within reach. Came up on toes, feet were very wide on landing with knees in, back hyperextended. Otherwise good! Muscle snatches on the 105.

Worked on MUs in the basement did about 21 with toe assist.

Kelly excellent as always..Dead on with the comment from doctors "What have you been doing" when you do crossfit when you are healing-- it definitely kicks up the healing process.

135# - fixed jump by pushing butt back & less knee bend in downward dip

first 6/7 lifts i was being a toolbox and gripping a little too narrow and had trouble externally rotating.. duh! it was much easier after the adjustment.
could have had it earlier in the workout if i wasn't being a tool and gripping wrong.. learning experience! next time..

It got ugly at 115#, though I noticed that I had a hard time getting into a good catching stance. My legs were too wide, which is something that I'm going to have to work on. The first 125# attempt was a failure, the next two were pseudo muscle snatches.

Question on form...

I've never done these hanging snatches before. Put 135lb. on to try. I can horse it overhead without any pressing motion to straight arms overhead by basically pulling really hard as a clean. However, I'm basically pulling hard enough that the momentum created allows me to lock without squatting. The other day when we did overhead squats, I could barely do the bar without falling on my butt. If I squat for these snatches...I'll struggle to bring it up with my arms locked and will have to reduce the weight significantly. Should I be squatting and reduce the weight...or am I ok to simply pull on the clean motion hard enough that I don't need to squat to lock my arms?

First time doing snatches for weight at all. All performed under the watchful eyes of my affiliate, where all the fails were technical - they actually made it over my head, but weren't caught locked out and thus didn't count.

Form was definitely suspect on several of the last ones.

Comment #144 - Posted by: Eric in SD at June 17, 2009 10:51 AM

***FRAT***
Warm-up:
Row 2k (easy) - 7:55
PVC Shoulder Dislocates
10 OHS @ 20kg
10 Sampson Stretch Lunges

***MANAGED 40kg (88#) as Rx'ed (both arms!) for 9 reps***

This felt good, so decided to do Shoulder Presses and Jumping pull-ups:

Shoulder Press 20/5-30/5-35/5-40/5-45/3-50/3
Jumping Pull-ups 3 sets of 5 on the rings, more pull than jump
Gravitron Assisted Pull-ups BW-40#/3, BW-28/3

By this time I felt really good and had no pain in my corrected shoulder, so I tried some non-assisted pull-ups:

Neutral Grip, strict: 3 reps chin above bar
Overhand Grip, strict: 3 reps chin above bar
Overhand Grip, small kip: 3 reps chin above bar
finally:
Overhand Grip, Kipping, Chest to Bar: 5 sets of 3

Very satisfying to do real C2B pull-ups for the first time since early February! I'm going to enjoy it for the next 6 days! :)

Icing my shoulder as I type this. Nowadays it's more "prehab" than rehab.

So... I'm totally a noob to crossfit and today's WOD is something i've never tried before so i need some serious help on technique. I can get 155 up but i'm pretty much just throwing it up then shoulder pressing. I really should be doing a lot more on this lift... anybody have any info on where i could get additional tips for my form. Thanks.

Was doing better at this last year. Last year was so close to getting 80. This year, was struggling to have full lockout at 75.

75-70-75-75-75-70-70-75-75

For a little spice then did:
5 Rounds
100# C& J x 5
10 Burpees
= 14:09

Time was not impressive but I had fun anyway. Debated about posting b/c after last few wods (like nasty girls) and after I read everyone’s time, I was like, well I stunk. LOL. But it is what it is. I will take my PR’s I feel good about and run with those ;)

Having watched ALL the videos on snatches on the website earlier in the day, I just went and tried hang power snatches, along with some hang snatches. Did about 25, plus some 15 with an empty bar for starters. The heaviest I went was 95#.

I'm thinking of paying a visit to an Oly weightlifting gym to get some tips from a pro coach.

#122 TomR:

I had that problem a few months ago; mine was inside my forearm (from that inside elbow bone to the top of my forearm). I did rest it for a while, but, to better effect, I adjusted how I did several motions to avoid any unnecessary lateral strain. Most important, on any pulls (PUs, deadlifts), I make sure I'm not flexing my fist inward at all, but keeping my wrists as straight as possible. I also use a hook grip for PUs rather than w/ my thumb overhand.

Trust me, it hasn't gone away. I still feel it sometimes, but it's completely bearable and I can go at it full force. So long as I'm not in an armwrestling contest, I'm fine...

You think you can say "just sayin" and it makes everything okay, after you've called the entire CrossFit staff a bunch of tight wads for not ponying up enough money for this international event? I don't think so.

Then did 95x10 to work on better form, and finished off with 95x5 power snatches (from ground). Seems like I can do more weight comfortably with power snatch than hang power snatch. Was not able to get 135 cleanly (w/o press). But happy just working on this one - haven't done much snatching before.

On the last 2 sets practiced OHS, did sets of 5. Also, practiced DU's between sets. Discovered I've been trying to get the rope moving to fast and that was throwing off my timing. Slowed the rope down and now I can explode off my toes instead of jumping. What a HP moment.

Remember crossfitter's your flexibility in your hips, lats, and legs plays a very very large role in your ability to execute this lift same as with OH squat - If your heels come off the ground really get your calfs stretched and warmed prior to these - you can also try myofacial release. IT bands may be your next culprit and then your lats. Hope this helps all of you.

Still nursing a knee injury. I can now flex it with out pain but taking weight (aka any kind of squat - even partial) still brings pain. I'm hoping one more cycle off leg work will fix the issue. I've seen definite improvement.

So instead of HPS today I did:

For time:
30, 26, 20, 16, 10, and 6 of Virtual Shoveling (half each leg forward)
30, 25, 20, 15, 10, 5 Pull-ups, all kipping

In 6 rounds:
1 - unbroken/23, 7
2 - 18, 6/13, 8, 4
3 - unbroken/10, 10
4 - unbroken/8, 5, 2
5 - all unbroken
6 - all unbroken

Each of the 145 reps had a pretty lousy lockout at top. 135 was fine. Probably should have worked that weight more to get the form more solid.

m/29/6'/165

first time with this lift. mainly worked on form.
worked up from 70lbs up to 100lbs. At 100lb form started to breakdown and had to muscle a few of them up. did get a couple good ones at 100.

also worked on hang power clean (didn't do this one in last cycle's wod). perhaps could have gone heavier but that's all the weight i had w/ me.

10x90lb
10x110lb
10x130lb
5x130lb

i need to video myself so I can better analyze my form on these oly lifts. i typically work out solo so right now just have been using this website as my coach reading and watching video (over and over and over).

haven't done much oly lifting, but it's challenging and kind of fun. good stuff.

****FRAT****
Just came home after 4 great days at BrandX participating in the Level 1 and Kids Certs. Amazing experience, learned way more than I thought I would after 3 years of CrossFitting, and soaked up as much wisdom and CF enthusiasm as I could. I wish I hadn't waited so long (worries that I wouldn't "measure up" turned out to be totally unfounded as the coaches were completely supportive of everyone across a wide range of physical abilities). And the lectures & breakout sessions with the group of trainers we had were brilliant; such a blessing to be able to learn from and with the best!

Biggest take-aways from the Level 1: A) seeing life-long CrossFitting (no matter how old you are when you begin) as the way most likely to foster independent and healthy life into later years, and to combat the encroachment of decrepitude and dependency. B) understanding "intensity" in terms of working out at a threshold, right in that area where I hover between success & failure, between trying too much versus being "safe and comfortable"

Best takeaways from the Kids Cert: that kids are not little adults (I KNEW that already, really I did, and ought to, as I have 4 of my own), and that learning how to move well can be, NEEDS to be FUN! not just for kids, but also for adults who haven't ever experienced good functional movement before.

Surprising bonuses: Having Coach show up Sunday morning!! Having Terry from Concept 2 give a little mini-clinic on rowing Monday evening. Being able to get insight and advice from several awesome trainers about working with people with back injuries. And meeting Apolloswabbie in person :)

***END FRAT***

Back home at CF Santa Clara, elected to do sets of 3 and work on technique not at the expense of weight..

Sets of 3 @ 42-52-62-62-72-72(2)-72

Knew I was "at my threshold" because that weight was not easy (failed a couple times when I didn't jump & shrug adequately) but was doable if my technique was good.

Just practiced with the bar today. My form is awful. I'm actually better at the full snatch because I can't get the bar high enough for a power catch.

Also, I did some practice on the bench press and low-back squat because I finally a copy of "Starting Strength." I don't have the flexibility for the low-back squat yet.

I muscled the 160 and 165 instead of just dropping a little, but it was gratifying to make those weights. Tells me I'm capable of snatching over 200 (I think). Bodyweight is now under 180.

Didn't know what a snatch was until yesterday. I watched videos all day long. I was so intimidated I almost shook before going to the gym. Did the warm up exercise like my life depended on it. When I felt comfortable, this was the outcome.

Comment #241 - Posted by: Raine at June 17, 2009 5:19 PM

First time ever doing these. Watched the vids, but still don't have it down. My range of motion in my shoulders seems limited. I really need to videotape myself to see what I look like. Practiced with 45lb, 65lb, and 85lb. and did a few overhead squats for practice.

Well, i went to local crossfit affiliate today (first time to one). I asked the young trainer dude if they had a pad for the bar for back squats and he told me they called them "tampons". Very ironically, the statement backfired on him and made me decide he was an utter dweeb as opposed to filling me with admiration for his toughness. Go figure. I guess it's hard for me to understand such statements when I don't feel the need to "compensate".

Anyhow, did the WOD and couldn't get past 105# without having to press the rest of the way up. First time snatching.

I felt better after PR deadlift 265 from 250 a couple weeks ago. YEEEHAWW!

Been nursing an injured back for the past week and a half and was itching to train again. I had my chance today.

Skills Warm Up:
Double Unders, 20 reps
Overhead Squats, PVC, D-Ball, 20 reps
Pull Ups, Kipping, Chest to Bar, 10 reps
Ring Dips, 10 reps
Muscle Up Progressions, Rings at 65", 10 reps
Handstand Push Ups, 10 reps
GHD Sit Ups, 20 reps
Back Extensions, 20 reps

Then onto the wod:
Hang Power Snatch, 1 rep, 45/65/95/115/115/125(F)/125/125/115/95

Form was shaky at 125 lbs. All other attempts were clean with good form.

Finished off with a 95 lb round of Isabel (30 snatches for time). My time was 6:30 (PR). Mostly power snatches; got below parallel on about 1/4 of my reps. Need to continue to work on getting under the bar. Will put on more weight once my form improves.

My son Luke (m/13/125) had football practice today; Mama (f/50/130) and Brittany (f/11/65) ran 1/4 mile followed by 20 pull ups, 30 sit ups and 40 squats. Keep up the good work, guys!

All the power lifts still feel awkward but they're getting better. Still need to focus on feet and pulling under (even with the power) the bar instead of pulling the bar up. Anyway, 1st time with the max rep Snatch so I'll take it.

Then I did 10 reps at 95 to focus more on form. I felt good afterward so I decided to take a shot at Fran (4:39) and rowed 1000m to cool down.

Didn't somebody mention something about paying for deviating from the posted workouts just the other day? I looked at tomorrow's WOD, and surprise! Tomorrow will be some kind of fun.

Never did these before so I practiced a lot and decided my 1RM was when I felt the form getting sketchy. Better safe than sorry.

CFWU x 2
countless reps with broom handle to practice form.

1 x 85#
1 x 95#

105# felt good but I was afraid to go higher with my limited experience in the lift.

I found it difficult to keep my form. My body always wants to shift sideways for some reason, and I'm also spreading my legs too far apart when I drop under the weight. When I went up to 115#, I found myself "muscling" the weight up like a military press, so I dropped back to 95#. Still had trouble with form, but it was an overall improvement.

Comment #332 - Posted by: Bphantom at June 18, 2009 7:26 AM

Probably could have went more. Tried to go slow, work on some form since I don't do snatches that often. Next time, going to go bigger.

Comment #338 - Posted by: Ben (71" 190#) at June 18, 2009 9:43 AM

I could do 115 with relative ease, but 135 WOULD NOT HAPPEN from a hang. I could power snatch 135 but could not get enough 'mo' to hang power snatch 135. I'm disappointed. Like many, I need work on this lift!

My form is really bad. A soon as the weight starts getting heavy I can’t snatch it to lock out, I always end up pressing it up the last few inches. Bad form, just not comfortable getting under the bar.

I'm a day off, so here's my stats from 6/18:

95/105/115/125/135/95x3/95x3 then had to leave to pick up kids. Form needs work--1.5 weeks removed from Level 1 cert & learning snatch technique. My technique broke down pretty good at 125, but tried 135 anyway & really struggled. Wasn't doing the "hang power snatch" but more of a hang snatch as I was trying to work into the OH squat (didn't realized the difference until I read through posts).

hang power snatch

the ones at 135 were poor form. pretty much pushed it overhead. worked on form afterwards.

I did hang snatches, not power snatches
worked up to 115, but failed there. I wasn't really feeling all that strong today. Was able to do 105 several times in a row, but couldn't get 115.

I've done snatch before, but it's been a while. Also, I've taken a week off and just getting back into it, and I've been trying to take it a little easier, so I did 8x instead of 10x reps.

F/38/133ish/5'4"
First time doing since substantial instruction.
Did hang power snatches, into overhead, then squat.
45 (first one felt wobbly)
45 better
45 cake
65 (landed sumo style) thought this was 55, math error!
65+big collars better landing, little wobbly overhead
65 landed wide
65 felt good, narrower landing
70 caught with slightly bent elbows
70 tried again, caught with more bent elbows, felt twinge in R shoulder
45 to end on a good note

I MUST MUST remember to point my elbows forward in the overhead position instead of letting my humerus roll to the outside. I think that's why my shoulder hurt. This is a habit I need to get out of.

Had lingering pain in the my lower lumbar. I couldn't hold the weight in the hang position without pain. I went up to 135 but stopped there. I worked on OH squats after that, got 155 once.

It was just a bad day. GF and I broke up...just a bad day.

M/27/6"/170

First time doing any snatch work in about 5 years. I forgot how much I love this exercise.

95,105,115,125,130(ugly), decided to work on form here and so I banged out a few sets of triples at 115. Finished with a 1:31 500M row and 30 pushups.
