Snatch it like you mean it...

There were lots of great snatch moments today. I had some of the best snatch quotes ever today!

Jerry- *smiling*
Me- What?
Jerry- It's the snatch. It's not perfect.
Me- No, but it sure is fun to play around with.

After a minor coffee break...

Me- Gar will you put this away (referring to a barbell)? My hands hurt too much from the snatch.

Oh, *giggles* I love childish snatch humor!

Now if only my lifting would have been as good as my quotes! Flat out, today was stinky poo. No speed again, a lot like my cleans last week. As Jerry says, I wasn't opening my hips and getting to full extension. Drag nabit! This sucks! I hit 105 today solid, but the second I went to 110 I lost it all. No speed, no umpf! I actually got scared of a barbell today. That never happens! Have you ever had a moment like that? Where something that never bothers you suddenly does?

It was a total freak out for me. I was staring at 110 and all of a sudden I got Fran tummy! WTF? Who does that? why did that happen? No clues yo, no clues. All I know is that the danged bar got the better of me today. I mean, yes, I tied my PR but last time I had 110 up. I just couldn't lock out. So today I really, really wanted to hit 110. But I just couldn't. I couldn't help but wonder if maybe I should have slept in, and gotten more rest, but you know, again, performance on demand. CF says it. I should be able to produce, but for whatever reason today, that bar just got the better of me. Grrrr.... I will get you... oh yes... you may not know where, or where... but I will get you 110... watch your back. Sleep with one eye open....

Some days you have it, some you don't. There are worse things in life than the occasional sloppy snatch!

Of course, there is this kind of sloppy snatch:

Go's safe for work....but I don't think it's Zone friendly!
