Hang power snatch 1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

I don't think I've ever worked on hang power snatch. I actually beat my squat snatch PR of 50#s. Crazy. This movement is very challenging. You loose the deadlift for momentum in shrugging the bar, and you take away the squat which allows you more time to get under the bar. So I'm pleased as punch that I got 55# above my head :)

And is that wasn't enough, I went for a Back Squat PR.

Back Squat 1-1-1-1-1-1 reps

At my attempt of 125#, Rico pointed out that I wasn't set up correctly and I wasn't "tight" all the way around from my shoulders to my mid-line. I wasn't aggressive enough with the bar. When I took off 5#s and attempted 120#, I made sure I racked the bar in a comfortable place on my back and really locked everything tight in my body. Every muscle was tense. I went into my squat and came right up and it felt manageable. Which makes me believe I so have 125#s in my sights :)
