Some Big Snatches.

April 26, 2014

So the team has been getting to work lately on the lifting volume.  We went back to doing doubles on our % days and it seems to be paying off.  I don’t know about you, but doing a double clean and jerk at 85% is pretty much cardio so congrats to the team for pushing through.  We get a short de-load this next week and then I’ll most likely bring back 90%s on our % days in a wave format.

This week was BIG.  Jen snatched 67 and clean and jerked 87, Luke hit a 111 snatch, Lindsay hit a 93 (I think) clean off the blocks, Emelie got an 88 snatch and almost 90 off the blocks and I hit 151 today.  I don’t know how many times I’ve said this lately but I love the group I’m working with right now.  We’re an intense bunch that minimizes cupcaking during practice time.  I’m very proud of all my people.

Here’s my 151 from today.  I cut out the ensuing freak-out but let’s just say Jen and Jose got a front seat view of how crazy their coach is.

Here’s Emelie’s 88.  This was BIG.  I don’t know about you, but I don’t know a whole lot of girls that are throwing weights around like this.

      a 75. at her heaviest she was around 85-87kg. so she’s done a good job taking off the extra weight. I imagine she’ll eventually compete as a super again after she’s been training for 5 years or so.
