Today was my first meet since moving back to California. We were given 2 days notice about the meet and only had one day as a "taper." Not to mention Thursday's training was pretty tough. Regardless, I was still looking for some PR's.
My snatches were disappointing. I had an arm bend on my right arm in my second snatch, but the pull went solid, so I decided to go up as opposed to taking 102 again. Should've taken 102 again. HA! I was too far back on the pull and missed the weight forward on my last attempt. Given a few more attempts, I'm confident I could have gotten it, but that's the sport of weightlifting, which makes it exciting. 3 attempts and that's it!
The positive of the day came from clean & jerks. All three of my cleans felt relatively "light", so the squatting is definitely paying off. The trade off with squatting, however, is that it's effecting my jerk a bit. I feel as if I don't have that pop I typically have because my legs aren't rested. My jerk at 120 had a bit of a press out.
All in all there were a lot of positives from today. In no way were we rested for this meet, and I was still able to get a meet PR in the C&J and a clean PR. I also won my weight class! HA!
Moving forward, I'll increase the numbers I'm basing my snatch, clean & jerk, and squat percentages off. Looking forward to making some big jumps here moving forward!
