Tuesday - 32kg Snatch Day

Hands were a bit tender from yesterday, but I did what coach ordered:

Warm Up
Jerk(2x28kg) 5 minutes @ 8 rpm
Rest 10 minutes
Snatch(32kg) 6 minutes @ L15/14/14 ----> R15/14/14
OAJ(32kg) 8 rpm x 18L/18R
Swing(40kg) 30/30 x 2
CC Full Squat 30/30 x 2

Snatches actually went pretty well. Not much in the way of hand issues. That didn't occur until the swings, especially the second set. Developed a blood blister on the left pinkie. Day off tomorrow - should give my hands adequate time to recover. Beginning to wonder if my old thick handled 28kg bells are one of the reasons that I am struggling with the snatch. My 32kg and 24kg bells have the newer narrower handles and it is easier to get into the hook grip and I seem to develop less hand related issues. Just a thought.....
