40/40 Snatch

Hit my first milestone with the Snatch test.  My goal is to be able to do 37/37 with comfort.  "Like a good workout"   I don't want to struggle.  People say to aim for the weight class above yours as your training goal.  Well what is your goal when you ARE the top weight class?  Do you aim for 40/40 , 45/45, or 50/50?  Regardless, I hit 40/40 today without much of a struggle.  I broke out the chalk and I think it helped.  Makes catching in the hook a bit easier.  My hands survived fine.  I was also prepped from a mental standpoint.  All day at work I was thinking about hitting my goal and it makes a big difference.  Here is my workout:

24kg Snatch 40L/40R
24kg 1 Arm Swing 13L/13R on the minute for 5 sets
24kg Hang Snatch 10L/10R x 2 sets
24kg Snatch 15L/15R

5 Weeks remain until I board the plane for the Sept. RKC Cert.  I can't wait!!!
