More Snatches

Still trying to work on hand position on my corkscrew descents.  Played around with a 12kg bell warming up and seemed to be improved.  Moved on to my main sets:

Snatch(20kg) 16 rpm x 8 minutes - 1 switch
Snatch(20kg) 16 rpm x 4 minutes - 1 switch
OAJ(24kg) 6 rpm x 8 minutes - 1 switch

Hands feeling a bit better after this workout.  I think I am making progress, but I still have a long way to go.  I really feel like I need to get this figured out before I move up to the 24kg for snatches.  My OAJ went pretty well.  Still developing some hand/wrist fatigue which I think was due to slight hyperextension of my wrist in the rack.  Really focused on keeping my wrist neutral/vertical in the rack which seemed to help on the left side.  Also seemed to help with the extreme pressure I have been feeling on the ulnar emminence with the 24kg.  Next time I meet with Andrew I will have to focus on hand/wrist position in the rack and trying to master the corkscrew descent/OK grip.

Way over my head with the GS. I'm sticking with HS for now but good luck. Your boys are like mine, they add that element of suprise to your concentration. Nothing like a naked kid on a bigwheel or a flying object to test your focus.
