Snatches have always been my hardest lift. I know alot of it had to do with my fear to drop under the bar. Then again even my power snatches haven’t been great. Last year I PR’d my snatch at 85lbs. This year I know that I’ve been away from crossfit for a few months and I’m just relearning the technique but tonight was tough.
The WOD started off with a snatch cluster. 1-1-1 x 3 sets. All reps starting from the floor and landing in full squat snatch. I was okay power snatching to 65lbs. Coach kyle instructed me to continue to catch the snatch in a power snatch and then ride the weight down into an overhead squat, to get comfortable with the weight above my head. So here’s to hoping I can continue to work on it and see improvements.
Meals today went well with the exception of the dark chocolate I snacked on. It’s going to be a tough first few days adjusting to no sugar. But I’ve done it before so I know I can do it again.
Just wish there wasn’t so much Halloween candy and chips in the house.
