New Week, New Type of Training

I didn't really post anything last week because I ended up just trying to perfect the Snatch. I still don't have it perfect, but I will get it. So, I had to guess my numbers for some things, or go off old numbers for things this week. It's alright, though. It was still a good week of training.

It's been crazy, though. There have been so many squats that my thighs are sore. I'm loving it, though. I suppose, though, outside of the Snatch being difficult there isn't really much to talk about. So I think I'll just go on and post the numbers now.

Oh, there is one more then. For the Push Press and the Front Squats that I did on the 2nd, I had to hold briefly at the bottom. It is very hard to come back up out of those with any real force even with such a short hold. I understand why I have to learn how to, though. I may find that I have no choice but to pause for an extended period of time at the bottom of a Snatch. Still, it's rough.

Thank you all for reading.
