This morning, we did one-arm snatches, and I graduated to a new weight: 30#. It felt pretty awesome. So awesome, in fact, that I got a little ahead of myself and did one set with a 35-lb. dumbbell (!) but my form kinda disintegrated, so I backed it off to the 30s for the remainder of the sets. They did not look like this:
What is going on there in image #2? Is the barbell whispering a secret to him? And what exactly is the explanation for the landing in #3?!
DB snatch 3 per arm, 30#
:20 air squats
My squats: 16 – 18 – 19 – 19 – 19 – 20 – 21
:15 DB thrusters, 25#
My thrusters: 28 total
This workout was an excellent reminder for me to keep moving because with just one second left in the 20-second squat interval, I nailed the last rep that bested my goal for the day. How fun is that?! I’d tried for 20 on rounds 3, 4, and 5, to no avail.
“Melicious, you have a very tenacious look on your face,” Coach Boone said.
I’m [gasp] trying [wheeze] to [pant] get [huff] to [puff] twenty [rasp]! I replied
When I hit that 21 on the last round, I strutted like Ru Paul workin’ the runway (sweetie), burning quads and all.
