Powerclean and splitjerks with 207lbs, first single not shown
Ugly form all round, I had no snap and speed today, felt flat, CNS drained from bench PR 2 days ago. felt really heavy
But a PR of sorts and I did em 5 times
4 stage snatch highpulls complex with 175lbs, 2 sets shown. These felt better. But kink in upper back, and hip scoop timing needs work I think. Going up on toes feels odd, might try these without going up on toes

Don’t take this the wrong way, but get a coach. Your 1st pull is a mess among other items.
Also, drop the frickin’ weight, don’t lower it like that–it’s bad for you. The noise won’t hurt you. Better yet, it’ll distract others which is good.
I only saw the snatch pulls, and in my opinion they looked good. Upper back rounds a bit, but you keep the back angle and good knee bend.
I didn’t mean to sound like a dick…decent pundages, BTW.
Well if I could get a coach I would have, but I can’t easily find one around here.
And my gym doesn’t let me deliberately drop the weights. 207lbs isn’t so bad anyway, but once I go above 220lbs, then it will get harder, but I won’t be strong enough for a while. But by the my upper body maybe strong enough to lower them anyway
workout that day -
Long ass session. I felt a bit flat during the powercleans and splitjerks, took a while to get going. Felt damn heavy. Guess my CNS was fried from the 5RM on bench 2days ago…

Well everything felt heavy from 155lbs onwards, took a while to get the power going. CNS was flat. Frontsquats felt good today, but then I ripped my shorts doing them on the 109 and 129lb sets!
207lbs was bitching heavy! Form was really shakey today, and not too pretty, but I made all of em, just barely though.
207lbs PC and SJ is a PR of sorts
