Snatches and More Corrective Exercises

I am continuing to work on my corrective exercises and have to say that my thoracic spine and shoulder mobility have had a significant improvement and my overhead position continues to improve.

Warm Up - FMS Corrective Exercises
Snatch(16kg) 15/15
Snatch(20kg) 10/10
Snatch(24kg) 16 rpm x 9 minutes - 1 hand switch - 144 reps
OAJ(32kg) 13/13 x 1 set

I am continuing to improve my overhead position, but it does tend to disintegrate as I fatigue which only makes things worse.  My thumb ratchet is also steadily improving and my hands gave me very little trouble on today's set.  
I am scheduled to head down to Andrew Durniat's this weekend to video my level 1 rank in the biathlon so I can compete with the 28kgs at the Worlds, however, I am working and am not sure I am going to be able to make it to Wooster.  I will have to play things by ear and see how busy things get this weekend.
On another note, I weighed 192lbs this morning.  This is much lighter than usual.  I will have to see if this remains consistent. If it does, I may have to seriously consider dropping down to the 85kg (187lb) weight class for the Worlds.
