you driving the hips forward or up on those snatches? it's hard to tell.. some look solid and some look like you're trying to put your pecker through the lense of the camera! STRONG ASS SNATCH BTW!!! just remember you want the weight to go up so your body has to go up!

i've been doing olympic snatches with or hanging snatches with a 40kg and it looks about as good as yours does but i'm about 50lbs fatter HAHAHA sick work as always man.. how does that man  your forearms and hands feel?

LOL, my wrists are killing me.

one reason my form got dodgy was i REALLY wanted to get three good reps per side on camera, so i ended up doing it about six times. either i forgot to hit record or i'd totally miss one rep, something kept happening. the one i put up was actually the third set in a row, which is why i'm walking around at the beginning. when i'm going fresh the aim is DEFINITELY to keep things "vertical" instead of tryin' to hump the thing. Tongue

KB's are comically harder than DBs, i'll say that much. i can still slang around a 100lb DB on a good day for a few, but trying to get the effing KB to flip over is a bitch.

do your knees ever hurt Zack? i decided to throw some sprinting into the mix and now it feels like my right knee wants to buckle sometimes, i laid off of them and it's gottem better but this week will be the first leg workout in 3 weeks.

you definitely gotta work your way into it. i had NO idea how hard on the joints sprints are until i ran into the same problem as you a while ago. plus, it helps that a buddy of mine was a state/national track runner in high school so he's good with telling me what i'm doing way wrong.

shoes are also a big thing. i got a decent pair of New Balance with the right kind of support and it feels like there's less "shock" each time i put my foot down.

yeah sprinting in a pair of Nike Reax with a stiff ass sole probably isn't helping matters.

fleh.

see, i haven't really been in the gym because i got some rhoid rage. so i was nervous to get in the gym because the last thing i need is my butthole to explode. so i'm kinda being easy. still definitely working hard, but not going all-out. i'll spare the details. Tongue

also, i picked up a pair of Rogue Do-Win shoes for squatting. these things are effing ARMOR. once i get my hamstrings up to par (which are TOTALLY my weak spot), my squat's going to be through the roof, guaranteed.

SQUAT: beltless
45x10
135x5
185x6
225x5
275x3
295x3
315x3
225x5
225x5 - it took until here that i really "figured out" how to squat in these things.
225x5
225x5
225x5

chins:
15
40x8
50x5
50x6
15
15

DB shrugs:
85x20
85x20
85x20

pull-throughs:
65x12
65x12

weight: 203? how?

Hey mateouts lookng good. I was doing crossfit for about a year....loved it.

Your workouts look great but ur bodyweights seems to have gone down alot since i was last here. You were over 220 last time i checked. For the first time im heavier than u at 210.
