GTG Pull-Ups - 75 total
I did 3 workouts today. Each workout was 5 sets of 5 reps. The reps are easy to avoid burnout and build volume.

Snatches 32kg - 2 min @ 12 rpm
Gloved Snatches - 2 min @ 20 rpm
I am breaking in with 32kg. The weight felt heavier than expected, but this is the first time I have used 32kg in a long time.

2 min rest

Snatches are better. I could have gone longer, but I will push a little farther next time.

Snatches (left hand only) 32kg - 1.5 min @ 12 rpm
Gloved Snatches 20kg 2.5 min @ 20 rpm (1 min left/1.5 min right)
Seated Dumbbell Curls 35# - 12
1 Arm Row 32kg - 10
My right hand hot a hot spot from last Friday, so I didn't do ungloved snatches with it. 32kg snatches felt stronger than last time. Rows were easy.

Jerks w/fix-o-meter 2x30kg - 3 min @ 6 rpm
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.

Jerks 2x30kg - 2 min @ 6 rpm
The fix-o-meter stopped working and this messed up the workout. I will take 2 breaths at the top of each lockout next time.

18 Sep 16
Snatches 28kg - 3 min @ 16 rpm
Jerks 2x28kg - 3 min @ 8 rpm
Both sets were a sub max effort. I took 2 breaths during the lockout for each jerk. I also focused on bringing my elbows together during the drop so it is one smooth motion.

Snatches
32kg - 1 min per arm
36kg - I just tried some 1 rep sets.
I used to do snatches with 40kg, but that was a long time ago.

21 Sep 16
Jerks 2x30kg - 4 min @ 6 rpm
Jerks felt strong. Don't push it too fast. I took 2 breaths during the lockout and the video I took looked good. I need to work on dropping it more efficiently.

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.
