Post Call Jerks

Made it through another long weekend. Jerks were on the schedule today.

Warm Up: Rib Pull/Arm Sweep
MP(16kg) 10/10
OAJ(20kg) 10/10
Jerk(20kg) 10
OAJ(24kg) 10/10
Jerk(24kg) 10
Jerk(28kg) 8 minutes - 8,8,8,8,8,6,8,6 - 60
Jerk(28kg) 8 rpm x 3 minutes - 21

Jerks continue to feel strong. May get an occasional no-count, especially towards the end of a set, when I loose concentration. I tend to push out the last inch or two, instead of finishing my second dip with a strong lockout. Feeling good about making my CMS goals in jerk.
Great post by Mark Reifkind yesterday about the power of visualization in performance atheletes. About a week ago, I had started visualizing my snatch sets in hopes of improving my performance. After reading Rif's post, I will certainly keep at it....
