Sounds yummy. Try to find some Turkish butter next time you're in NYC (it's called "tereyagi" - if it says something else on it, don't buy it)...

Imo, nothing beats fresh bread right off the oven with some slowly melting quality butter on it

Can't get past 80 for snatch. I either end up power snatching 85+ or can't catch it low enough. Rest for the next 3 days.

Got more fat to lose, but I'm already thinking about starting a controlled bulk at this point. Stubborn fat is stubborn. 168 lbs in the pic...

Don't want to sound like an elitist, but it's not easy at all to execute any of these lifts with good form.

But yeah, they are light. I should probably go even lighter since I was all over the place. I have a video that I'll upload soon.

very technical stuff. I know for me there was a sweet spot with the clean. Too light and I didn't really get the movement. A heavier weight just felt much better and really clicked.

Are you doing any hang/high hang work? If not I'd probably add that in for your warm up. Probably some heaving snatch balances, tall cleans/snatches, klokov presses, and some flexibility work as well.

Not saying it was the case for you, but it also comes with some risk. For example, I figured after wasting some time that I could never full snatch anything without going bare bar first. Cleans are probably less risky.

I have some hang cleans, hang snatches, etc. I will definitely add some snatch balances since I'm stuck at snatching 80lbs at this time, and I know that I won't get past it unless I improve my catch position. Klokov presses (sots presses?) are also in the plan.

Here's a 95# clean and jerk from yesterday. I know exactly what I'm doing wrong (bar not close to thighs in the second pull, cleaning from mid-thigh rather than hi-thigh or hip, jumping forward and not staying on my heels, toes out during the jerk, etc.), but it's not easy to coordinate all these points at the same time.

Nevermind my friend's comments, he's just being nice lol..

yea a little too much leg bump and a jump forward. It looks a little slow and way too planned to hit the leg if that makes sense. You should fire up a little quicker after the knee imo. I think that's because it's very light.

I agree, while I suck at this movement I find it is actually easier with heavier weight, it forces you to truly clean it, where as with lighter weights it's easier to cheat.

I wouldn't say he's cheating though. He just seems to rely on the hard bump with the leg a little too low. I see plenty of "cheaters" though with cleans when it's too light. All arm.

Yeah I didn't mean fir it to sound like he was cheating, just wanted to hammer home that this movement is easier to practice properly with heavier weights.

I really need to get the front rack grip down, I've realized because of this I can't get under the weight properly which limits the amount I can actually clean.

Definitely. If you can't get the weight on your shoulder you'll forever be stuck at a power clean with unfavorable positioning. We want to get the bar on the shoulder above the collarbone. But you know this lol.

This I know, and I have plenty of shoulder to rest the bar on, getting my wrists, elbows, and shoulders on board is a whole different story though. When I was down in NY last Friday I wanted to get some tips from the girl Julia (average2athlete) as I know she used to have the same issue, but she had another class right after mine.
