I really enjoyed the AM session, it was cool doing something different. Those planche holds are no joke.
PM session was a bit better than yesterday. My training days are very bipolar. It would be nice to have two good days in a row.
Snatch gauntlet went pretty well, although my shoulders were fatigued as hell. Snatching on day 3 is no walk in the park. I did one rep every 2:00 trying to imitate the competition setting. I hit every snatch on the first attempt....and then 160 happened. The pull was super easy and I caught it perfectly in the bottom. I thought I nailed it so I started to stand it up and then all of a sudden I turned into this guy:
My shoulders started wobbling and I completely lost it out in front as I was standing up with it. I have literally never done that before. Heather and I were both very confused. This actually makes me sort of nervous, I don't want that to happen in the competition. I guess I'm still getting used to catching heavy weight overhead? My shoulders didn't feel stable at all. This wasn't good. So then I turned into this guy:
I threw a legit tantrum. I yelled "FUCK" at least six times. I took my belt off and threw it. I said I hated snatching and that I would never be good at it again. Then I rested another minute and tried it again. I hit it this time. It was not pretty, my shoulders were still sort of shaky and I took a few steps forward but I got it. SHEESH. I just want the catch in the bottom to feel stable because the pull feels insanely light. I flirted with the idea of trying to hit a 170 PR but Heather talked me out of that really quickly. She basically just said "no" and I knew she was right. My shoulders weren't up for it. I think if I was fresh on day 1 then I might be able to hit it. Oh well. I'm happy I only missed it once instead of three times like last week. Now I just need to be able to hit it in the two minute time frame.
Snatch pulls were super easy.
Snatch deadlifts went well, 245 was definitely tough but it's the highest snatch-grip deadlift I've done so far.
HSPU/row piece was decent, strict HSPU felt pretty good today. They slowed down on the sixth set (hence why the time is slower) and I tripped up once on the double unders during the first set. Luckily it was only the third rep so I really didn't have to waste much time starting over.
Body is tired but overall a better training day.
