New PR today with my jerks. Hurray!!

Jerk: 2 x 20kg - 6 minutes @ 8 rpm

Snatch: 20kg - 6 minutes @ 14 rpm

Rope: Intervals - 1 min on / 1 min off for 10 minutes

Today's jerk set was 10 reps away from my Rank II numbers! Oh I can taste it... it's almost here.

I had hoped to have enough in the tank to stretch my snatch set out to 7 minutes at this pace, putting me within a minute of Rank II snatch numbers, but the jerks wiped me out pretty good. With a little more rest in between I could probably stretch this to 8 minutes and hit my numbers.

I incorporated some rope work again as its been a while since jumping. Up till now I have been pretty exhausted after my sets and couldn't imagine having to keep my arms up any longer, but was inspired today. I'm going to try inserting these into the sessions in place of treadmill very now and then.

Nice work buddy! I think Rank 2 will happen for you before the end of October. Keep it up.
