73 kg (163 lb) Power Clean Complex from @e_bradley
What I liked about this particular set was the consistent footwork on the Power Cleans; many times people will jump their feet out wayyy further on a Power Clean than on a Squat Clean. The less an assistance exercise mimics the full lift, the less carryover it will have!

3 straight days of torture... I mean technique work with Tim McRae (@teemcrae). We worked through heavy volume and repetitions to get the movements down.
On snatch day we worked through 5 sets of 5 and then were challenged to end snatch day with 10 consecutive snatches with no misses. I successfully did 10 at 65kg (78% of 1 RM). On clean and jerk day we worked through a bunch of movements to help strengthen the clean. Legs and grip are now gone. 😜
I had to take a photo with 2 of the most successful American weightlifters and both 2 time Olympians from 2 generations with Tim McRae (1992, 1996) and Oscar Chaplin III (2000, 2004) (@coachoscar18). Not many people can have this opportunity and I am blessed and thankfully for being a part of @spsgym in Oakland.
Happy Snatch Sunday with a 10lb PR! Ready to actually commit to some consistent work on my olympic lifts and see what I can do next 🙌🏼 Thanks to @quadslikemike and @calvinchern24 for the encouragement, good cop/bad cop routine, and plate loading 😂🙌🏼 #allasiansquad#sunday#oly#alphatraining @alphatraining

Sometimes certain brands or pieces from brands feel better for your body, don’t get stuck wanting everything to match when it might not have the best angles and leverages for your body. It’s a HOME GYM MAKE IT YOURS 💪🏼.

Next stop AO3 in Las Vegas! 👻
So many things today which went better than last week. 🙂 .
First, I did a complex of 1 clean pull + 2 clean, in the clip the last and heaviest of 6 sets with 65kg. Not a PR when it comes to weights, but the first time that I felt a bit more confident to increase the weights, after I did fight really hard the last 6 weeks to learn tigh contact in the lift (which I hope is going in the right direction). 🙂
Then I did some split jerks up to 65kg, which felt sooo light! 🙆♀️ And I even thought my landing looks much better than before? Did by mistake a stop in the catch (not according to my program), but it went anyhow pretty fine. 🙃💪🏼
And in the last clip, my most "hated" 😉 exercise which I have been doing the past 6 weeks. Deadlifts with 2sec stop above bottom and knee, today 5 set x 3 rep at 90kg. The funny thing is, that each week I am increasing the weights by 2.5kg, and every time it starts to feel ligther. ❓🤗
📋Workout below ⤵️
Last round of fun in the sun! IT band is still hurting when I run, but lifting feels fine... weird.
🔹️Every 2:00 x 5 sets
🏋️♂️ 185LB Clean & Jerk x 1
🏋️♂️ 135LB Power Snatch x 2
🏋️♂️ 115LB Thruster x 5
📃 Start the exercises every 2 minutes. I chose a weight that would be fairly easy and give me 50-55 seconds of work and just over a minute of rest. .

Coach @xfruoff starting to get into the details of the oly lifts. Going over some common faults and ways they can be corrected. —
Missing in front! That gets annoying quickly. Why is that happening?? 1. Probably not reaching full extension
2. Trying to drop under early or rushing the pull
3. Hip/Ankle/Shoulder Mobility may not allow for correct position when receiving the bar. —
