Week 8 – Day 2

Suitcase walk @22kg x20 steps e.s *2

Jerk @20kg x3min e.s @13rpm
Jerk @20kg x1min (weak side) @18rpm, rest 1min *4 (all sets on weak side first, then repeat and match on strong side)

Hindu squats x35, 1 min rest *3

Glove snatch @16kg x2-4min e.s @16rpm


I have been trying to focus on my initial clean in the jerk – i find that if i catch the bell on my forearm before it lands on my trunk i get a much nicer hand insertion and that then flows onto a much better rack position and overall better (easier) set ! I don’t get it right 100% of the time so i am trying to improve on that !

Hindu squats kill me ! i wobble down the stairs at the end of the session!

    hand insertion is very important. So many people had problems with it in Hamburg because of the KB design. Remember that for jerk you are allowed to clean to the shoulder to adjust your grip, do not rush that 1st rep, set yourself properly!

      yep i did notice that the kb had smaller gap in the handle! I have a feeling the kbs in Melbourne may be similar. And yep my plan is to take the first minute to relax and just get in the groove.. in past comps. i have always rushed that first minute but this time I am going to really slow it down!
