Snatch(24kg) 16 rpm x 4 minutes - 1 hand switch
Snatches felt good. I am doing a much better job dropping the bell from the overhead position into the hook. My hands are much less tender and I think they will no longer be my rate limiting step to long sets. I also started to focus on locking my thumb over my index finger in order to preserve the grip. While training last summer for the RKC snatch test I was never able to do more than 40/40 24kg snatches with 1 hand change. Today I did 48/48 and could have done more. I think this is in part due to the slight change in technique associated with GS and more importantly taking the time to drop back in weight and start working the progressions with 16kg followed by the 20kg bells. This, I think, has added important strength and stability to my shoulder girdle and has allowed me to push my numbers without injuring myself. My OAJ with the 32kg continue to feel stronger and stronger. I feel much crisper and am forced to use my legs instead of just pressing the weight overhead.
