Snatch, Dead, GM 5-20-10

Split Snatch - 135/2, 155/2, 165/1, 175/1, 180/1 (+10lb PR)
Deadlift - 275/3, 305/3, 325/3, 345/3, 365/3 (+60lb PR)
Good Morning - 135/5, 150/5, 160/5, 170/5 (5lb PR)

First time in loong time trying split snatch. Done very little of them. Decided to try something different and see how I did with them because I feel real comfortable splitting when Jerking and I have a strong pull and a weak receiving position at the bottom of the standard snatch. And wham! 10lb PR. Saweet! The 180 wasn't competition legal, had a press out with my right arm, but I'll count it as a gym PR. Here is the video, including Bergen who is my first official client as a personal trainer outside the Academy which is kinda cool. Bergen is a 17 y/o novice lifter who I've been working with for a month on Starting Strength:

Bergen is doing great. Steadily adding 5lbs to his 3x5 squat 3 days a week for the last month. It'll be fun to see how he progresses. Just needs to learn how to EAT!

Slight tweak on the outside of my right elbow (supinated grip side) after set of 365 so stopped there. Was going to go for 385 which I would have gotten then 400 which I'm not sure if I would have pulled time.
