The "CinciNasty"

Here's a clip from this morning's workout. I couldn't post the entire workout, since YouTube has a limit on the length of videos one can post. This shows me going through the second circuit of the workout.

I stripped out the 30 seconds of rest I took between movements. And since I taped this inside today, I didn't have much room to position the camera, so it's not the best shot. Also had to rotate the clips as I had to position the camera sideways to tape, so the footage isn't as clear as it would have been if I let you watch it sideways.

Anyway, you'll at least get a sense of the session....

Great job! I can see you were pretty gassed at the end .. 6 minutes of hard work and only a minute of rest .. very cinci-nasty!

Thanks Franklin! That was actually my second time through the circuit, so really 12 minutes of hard work with only 2-1/2 minutes sprinkled in between. I'm still trying to focus more on form so I'm thinking of slowing down the pace in the next few sessions to do just that.

I might go up to Level 5 this week giving me more time on each arm while reducing the number a reps per minute to allow me more focus.

yeah, just snatch like you're cleaning in that video. Neutral head and mostly straight legs.

I tried the bent-leg snatch, which I now call the "hang snatch," and it's exhausting.

Keep the relaxed and efficient, yet mindful approach with minimal knee bend, and you'll exceed your snatch numbers.

Thanks Aaron. Another good catch. I hadn't noticed the difference between my cleans and snatches until now. Very interesting indeed! I guess it's a good thing I'm only working with the 12kg now, gives me a chance to work on all these little points before going heavy again.
