Today was Snatch Day. Today I finally lugged my 20kg bell into work with me. Through the underground garage, put one elevator, through the building lobby, up another elevator and into my office on the fifth floor. As you'd expect the handle stayed nice and warm today. Hurray!
Unfortunately, the cold weather and its effect on my sessions has taken its toll. Here's what happened today...
Snatch: 20kg - 7 minutes @ 14 rpm
Swings: 20kg - 15/15, 15/15, 15/15
Cool down with Z-Health R-Phase.
The time away from long sets has definitely had a negative effect on my grip. I was shooting for an 8 minute set but decided to change hands at the 3-1/2 minute mark. My grip was shot and I did not want to risk tearing my hands. I then decided to finish off with a few swing sets. Maybe because my hands were fatigued, but even these didn't feel as comfortable as I remember. I definitely don't do enough swings. So it's time for me to return to basics. Time to move ahead.
