We were heading to the theater in the evening with Pauliina and a friend couple so I had to rush a little to get a good session in the books. By the way, it was funny as hell at the theater! Those usually are =) Anyway, snatch work was the main element and had there been more time, squats would have been a part of this session too. Instead, a metcon of thrusters and t2b's were part of it. Awesome metcon!
- 3-position snatch (high hang, mid thigh, above knee
- Weights: 40, 45, 50, 50, 50, 52.5, 55kg
This time I wanted to pull from somewhere than just high hang. That's been my thing if I have done snatches lately. It turned out to be 3-position snatches, meaning I pulled from different starting positions. First one was high hang, the second a little lower and the third one from just above the knee. All reps ending in full squat snatch. I got to 55kg on this one and then it was time to move on. The biggest thing was that I received these in the deepest position possible for me. And I stayed there to stabilize after each rep to gain confidence in the position.
Metcon. Time, 7.13
- 5 rounds of:
- 12 thrusters, 40kg
- 12 toes-to-bar
I think those t2b's were unbroken for 3 rounds, then the 4th round was 7-5 or 8-4, and the last set something like 4's and 2's. Not quite sure how it went, the world started to go around in my head at that time. This was a great workout and my quads were killing me in the end. Thrusters were painful in the last 2 rounds, the last reps on those sets were pure grinding.
