Jerks for me are a work in progress. I'll start doing more after my cleans. And practice with much lighter weights. That would make a lot more sense.
Whoa, killer session. Chopped and sawed with my good friend, Chris Bradshaw, for the better part of 3 hours. Total volume for the session was through the roof.
Then went to my snatches. Went 95x5, 115x5. tweaked something in my left knee, it's still sore today, so I stopped. It was weird. dynamic lifts bugged it, but static lifts did not.
Arden, Thanks for the explanations on your work load planning!First Buddha, now the White Light, Stars and Turrets! What will be next? Great Job with the calf issue Arden.It really was an awesome workout with Kiara. Whenever I can get my 15 year-old daughter to do some training, I'm also always impressed with her easy squatting.I recognise a lot of your comments on your quick lift progress from my own. Keep at it, you're doing great. Sjaak
Started with snatch drills. Did a lot of bar drills and scarecrows (thinking high elbows). Then did a set of scarecrows with 75. Then did snatch drills with 95, 115. Everything was looking pretty good until i started pulling off the floor. 135 was next and it sucked. I was bending my elbows before I was fully extended and I couldn't control it. I then sprained my left wrist on the first rep with 165. It had been bugging me on the squat snatches for a few weeks and I just went with it; today it popped and really aggrevated it. It's okay, but sore. After that happened, I got mad and simply power snatched the rest of the set. Power snatches don't affect my wrist at all. I simply grip it and rip it. I then set a PR on 185 which I did for 5 very sloppy reps. Very Very frustrating. My thought is I need to do all my sets in the following sequence (once my wrist heals): tall, high hang, lower high hang, etc. It's only when I pull from the floor that I bend my elbows prematurely. It's very frustrating. Until my wrist heals I'm going to work on shoulders over the bar and power snatch as it doesn't hurt my wrist. I find it weird that one style of snatch causes this pain whereas the other does not. Any thoughts on that would be awesome as I'm at a loss?
