Yesterday’s Maximum Effort was humbling. After some discussion, Ben and I decided it would be optimal to try and slide my snatch grip out to the end of the bar.
You may be wondering, why now?
I had surgery on my wrist and there is a screw which had limited my mobility. Over time I have gone from being told that I will never be able to do a push up, to now, which there is no stopping me. Initially my lack of wrist extension mandated a closer overhead position.
Now it is time to adjust.
The wider grip allows me to achieve much better hip extension. That being said, my wrist is not quite ready for the change. Today I tried out a sotts press to see where my strength was at.
Old Position: 135 x 3
New Position: 50x5
Saying I have some work to do would be an understatement.
Thought of the Day:
Seven has the word even in it… And that is odd.
