Shoulder Press and Snatching Fran 12-13-08

Max Box Jump:  44.25"  (PR)   - Could have hit a bit higher, but it was getting pretty hairy.  I stacked bumpers on top of my 20" box jump. So it was 24" of stacked bumper plates.  I think I stacked 4 45's, 4 35's and 1 25lber.  Its not the biggest target to land on top of and even with spotters holding the bumpers its a bit sketchy.

Shoulder Press

95 x 5
100 x 5
110 x 5 (PR)

95 x 11 (PR)

The 110 lbs felt easier today then the 107.5 lbs a week ago.  Probably helped that I stomped on the ground like a bull and got psyched for it.

Sntaching Fran

21 - 15 - 9

Power Snatch 95lbs


That was a fun one.  Cycle rate is definitely slower then with thrusters because my grip was getting hit too hard after lowering the first 7-10 or under control, So I just started dropping the bar from overhead after finishing a rep and having to reset on the bar every time.  Add to that that I stink at snatching and you have the recipe for a slow time.  Some of the ugliest flopping fish out of the water Snatching you ever did see.  Need to get some coaching in order to improve on this lift.
