2008/10/21 - Working on form

On my high intensity day I decided to focus on slower sets with an emphasis on form. The jerk form was OK but the snatches still suck - specifically the corkscrew motion. I'm beginning to suspect that the problem is with the bell I'm using. It is a DD 16kg and the handle might be a bit awkward. Who knows. Anyway, here is the result:


One Arm Jerk: 8 minutes @ 8rpm: 32/32
Snatch: 7 minutes @ 12 rpm: 42/42 - Hand switches at 2 minutes, 4 minutes and 5,5 minutes.

Some Prasara to finish off.

Oh, you must get yourself a pro-grade bell. Your technique will undoubtly not be as smooth with a DD bell. Hopefully, Steve will have some at the cert you can experiment with.

Yup, I'm hoping so myself. I might even convince him to sell me one.
