Snatches 28kg - 3.75 min @ 16 rpm
I stopped the set 15 seconds early because I could feel some skin tearing. It is just a small spot on my right palm. I was probably not dropping it correctly. Cardio felt good.

Re: Kansas City, KS

I lived in Overland Park, KS for a year. BB's Lawnside BBQ in Kansas City was a fun place to visit. The food is good and they have live blues bands during the month.

My overhead lockout wasn't good, but I had beeps for each one except the last one. It'll get better as I find a good rest position. I used this in the past and found it useful.
