    I need WORK on this. I get to the shrug and hit a wall. Jimmy, thank you for the tape…helped a lot. I am determined.

    155 x2, U-G-L-Y, I could have gotten a 3rd, but I do not deserve to say I am a success at that weight. So, I decided to drop weight and work form.

    Proper Snatches are definately form dependent!

    I got up to 75 lb, then went down to 65 to work on form. Then, I went home and crashed. (I am embarassed to say how long)Not a normal habit for me, but I was still tired from yesterday. Maybe now I can do the CFE WOD.

    125 lbs "snatch." It did end up over my head without stopping, but that's where the similarities ended. Went down to a lighter weight to work on form, but even then I still had bad form.

    Did CFE this afternoon including:

    4 runs of 40 seconds on, 20 off;
    4 runs of 20 seconds on, 40 off;
    4 runs of 20 seconds on, 10 off;
    4 runs of 10 seconds on, 20 off.

    Total distance: 1.01 miles.

    85 lbs of unprettyness (it took four with the first attempt a failure). Worked on form at a lower wgt and I think I have it but I can't seem to produce the speed to go along with. Power's a complicated thing to achieve apparently. Maybe a lighter wgt is in order or maybe just angrier music. Is anybody out there just awesome at these? Suggestions?

    85 lbs. I have a few things to improve on regarding my form. The snatch is a complicated lift. Good job Ginny. Thanks Jimmy for helping with my form.
