I don't know what, if I've done anything differently the last few days, except maybe get frustrated with myself, but today's work with the 16's seemed like a vast improvement over the last outing. I felt like I was able to get deeper into my rack on my Jerks and although I didn't rest as long as I should have in between, I was able to hit the time and pace I was shooting for on my Snatches. Here's what it looked like...
Warmed up with some Spinal Rocks
OAJ 16kg - 5L/5R (part of the warmup, just 5 reps each side trying to deepen my C-curve)
Jerk: 2 x 16kg - 5 minutes @ 6 rpm
Snatch: 16kg - 6 minutes @ 16 rpm
OAJ: 28kg - 5L/5R (as a finisher for good measure, held each overhead for about 3 seconds)
Cooled down with Plow Pose
Like I said, I didn't rest much in between the Jerks and Snatches (less than 5 minutes) and I could feel it. But once I started the set there was no turning back. That's it for today. Tomorrow I plan to play with the 20kg. Jerk 'em up y'all!
