Thanks for the replies. I’ll try to get video of the lifts from time to time. I do have a video camera, but haven’t used it much for a while. It may take a few days to figure out how to get stuff posted here.
I just finished a 12 week cycle feeling strong and refreshed, so I’m jumping right into the next cycle. Every session starts with a 10 minute warm up, mostly dynamic stretching and complexes with just the bar–presses, squats, drop snatches, and RDLs. This first week, except for pulls and deadlifts, the sets are at 50%, 60% and 70% of 1 rep maxes. Pulls and deadlifts are at 80% and 90% respectively. All weights are in kilos.
Snatches: 53/3, 64/3, (74/3)3
Back Squats: 70/5, 84/5, (98/5)3
Bench Press: 50/5, 60/5, (70/5)3
Snatch High Pulls: (84/5)3
Time: 40 min
Technique-wise, I’m working on a lower set position in the pulls. It seems to make keeping back on the heels easier, the transition from 1st to 2nd pull quicker, gives a more powerful 2nd pull, and makes pulling under the bar better synchonized. We’ll see how that holds up when the weights get heavier. Overall a very easy workout.
