Evidence I don't just snatch. Everything felt twice as heavy last night and I had trouble staying tight and hitting a wider split. Managed a 1kg PR anyway at 63kg/138.6#. Let the good times roll. #foundationbarbell

In January, I set a half-serious goal of snatching 50kg by June. At that time I had only ever hit a pull-and-pray 45kg once, ever. Less than 3 months later and I PR with 49kg/108# tonight before I set my sights on 51kg/112# seen here. I'm about as surprised as you are, as you can see every time I drop the bar before I get to stand up with it. The body is learning, but the brain is still shocked to be there. It's been hard work but so fun, this game of minutiae and split seconds. #trusttheprocess #foundationbarbell

...and done. So done. I made it to the last round and got through 47 snatches Rx. I'm pretty happy with that! #crossfitopen #FCFio2017

Work parties got me like...

I've worked really hard to try to understand this 'snatch& #39; thing the last 2+ years, and my body is finally getting it! Made the first lift here, my 102% (46kg/101#), twice, then @fisheboy made me try 48kg/105#. My goal in January was to hit 50kg by June. Coach is delivering early. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

The Homie, aka Dad, doing Dad Things. Thanks, mang.

Showing you my snatch again. What a difference a week makes. I've never been very good at consistently practicing anything so that alone is an accomplishment. First snatch is at the same weight as last week (38kg/84#), second is 41kg/90#. Relaxed grip ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Turn up the ๐Ÿ”Š. Coach knows just how to get through to me. ๐Ÿ˜ All the joints feel tight/weak today, but my 85% snatch (38kg/83.6#) actually feels workable only 2+ years later!

2006/2016: Same but different.

Keep 'em coming.
