Tuesday's Workout with Video

Another late night workout starting around 9:15 PM tonight. The good news, is that I am finally starting to kick this upper respiratory crud that I have been fighting for a couple of weeks. Thought I would shoot some video tonight of both my jerk and snatch sets as I haven't done this in a while. I feel like there have been some subtle changes in both my jerk and snatch technique and I wanted to see what things looked like.

Warm Up
Jerk(2x28kg) 5 min @ 7 rpm
10 min rest
Snatch(28kg) 6 min @ L18/18/18 ---> R18/18/18
Swing(40kg) 30/30 x1
BSS(2x16kg) 10/10 x1

I decided to skip the heavy OAJ tonight to allow my shoulder to recover a bit more. I have been focusing on bringing my pelvis forward during the early ascent of my snatch, which is allowing me to use my legs much more efficiently. It is interesting how fatigued my legs get during my long snatch sets since I have made this change. My grip is also no longer the rate limiting step of my snatch sets and my legs are getting the bell overhead instead of pulling with my arm as I used to. Below is the video of my snatch set:

Jerk set is below:

Exelent job Matt! You are using much more your legs in snatch(pop)!

When you are snatching with your left hand,your right hand(empty hand) is inactive. Somehow ,I got same problem and I dont know why?
Your jerk seems better! It seems that you are doing hip bump in right direction(up and forward),
not only up. So there is triple extension in your feet!
Good job!

Hey thanks. After many, many reps, I feel like I am starting to figure things out a bit. The bottom line for me is figuring out how to get my legs more active in my lifting as this is a strong point for me.

I did a small Local competition this past weekend..
I did the 24kg for 50 jerks in 5 minutes and 60/60 snatches.. I didnt really care about the jerks... But the snatches felt real good, even pace and not too tough... I was good to go 10 minutes... I have a few lifters competing June 26th in connecticutt.. I will most likely do some lifting... nothing serious Until Chigaco...
