Snatch one rep every minute on the minute for 15 minutes.

My low/high score:

How my 15 minutes progressed: 

So I just looked up my snatch history and my PR is 50#s, I thought it was 55#s. Oops. Well, I'm glad this WOD came up cause it really gave me the opportunity to work on my technique. I was telling Zeb it feels almost effortless when you do the movements perfectly and you stick the lift, like it's not difficult at all because you are using the powerful drive from the hips to get the bar weightless, then quickly get under the bar at the precise moment of being at the bottom of the squat and your arms are locked out... so nothing hurts or is strained or tweaky cause you did everything right. This effortlessness happened minute 6, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 14. I was really happy about it. 

Then in my last attempt I couldn't stick my landing. I felt the bar was too forward, which probably means when I shrugged I didn't keep the bar in my frontal plane, or I didn't get aggressive enough and lock out my arms at the bottom of my squat, so I ended up dumping the bar in front of me. 

Either way, I'm determined to get a new PR in the very near future. Depending on the workout this weekend, I'm definitely going to try to work on Snatch on my own. 

After 3 days of eating clean, I've already dropped all that crazy water weight that I pack on so quickly when I eat all the yummy rice and potatoes that I (heart) so much. Lol!
