Case of the missing snatches....

On Friday I worked snatch 1-1-1-1-1-1-1. I had a good warm up, was ready to roll, and just mentally couldn't get it together. I really went into it wanting to best my previous 205lb PR (see 4/23/10 for video). Physically, I felt good but I kept having lifting touretts every time I addressed the bar. My breathing, timing, and rhythm felt off. I easily blew through 165, 175, 180, and 190...but my brain kind of shut down as the weight got heavier. Then, I just started pouting.

Here's the 180 lift:

Here's the 190 lift:

And here's me pouting like a weiner...

Shoulders too far forward, butt comes up too soon, and I never hit a solid lock out. Win some, you lose some. I'll revisit this lift later this week and hopefully be more focused.
