Snatch Balance Day :) Back At It!

Today was AWESOME! I was feeling wrecked this morning from yesterdays squat cleans and hill sprints and wasn't planning on working out.. until I got to the gym and started playing with Snatch Balances.

It's been a solid year since I've done them, or much of anything for that matter, so I was dreading a reality check.. I was expecting to be WELL under my 165# PR.
They started out really wobbly and awkward because I'm so out of practice.. which made me even more nervous. I watched the videos of my first lifts and saw that I just wasn't getting under quick enough!

It wasn't a flawless workout, but it was a good way to break the ice again. I ended up getting 173# fairly easily and failing (on my ass) at 178#.

Then I did two back to back 10min AMRAPs with Matt, just because I hate them..
4 Narrow HSPU, 8 C2B Pull-Ups, 16 GHD Sit-Ups
4 Narrow HSPU, 8 C2B Pull-Ups, 16 24kb KB Swings

I'll post the video of my Snatch Balance workout.. the good the bad and the fails, as soon as I figure out how to use Imovie.

It feels GREAT to be training again. I feel as stoked as when I first started all over again :D
