Bahhhh I had to skip my AM session again, another busy morning covering classes. Sorry Stevo. 

Snatches were tough today, shoulders were fatigued after all the muscle ups yesterday. I basically just did the snatch ladder from the Covington comp, I worked up to 145 really easily but failed 160 three times. Merrrrr. The first miss was actually a really good miss, I caught it in the bottom but then lost it behind me. The next two misses were out in front. I took a few minutes and then hit it on the fourth try. It wasn't the best rep but oh well, I'm glad I know I can at least snatch 160. Now I have one month to hit it 1000 more times. 

Strict handstand push ups have greatly improved, I hit 9 in a row on the first set which is definitely a PR. I think the most I ever did before today was five reps during regionals practice. My shoulders were pretty tired by the third set but I was able to stay consistent through each set. Very happy with this!

Row/double under piece was harder than it should have been, I was sucking wind by the second set.
