15:46, rested between movements but did everything unbroken. Would not have been able to do another rd unbroken though. Grip was toast.
For People who are comfortable with the snatch, pick a weight you won’t struggle with.
Time: 7:30.5 including the 6 minutes in rest periods.
Afterwards, I considered the notion that maybe I should have tried 50 instead of 40, but a few reps at 50 confirmed this to be a bad idea. Unbroken was not likely here unless I stopped doing power snatches, which I was able to do unbroken with 40.
Cash out: 25 good minutes on the stationary bike, around 7.5 miles.
Reps were mostly power or muscle snatches, very little squat or bend at the knee, many reps required muscling the bar overhead with arms locked out. My form is not very good. I should have worked on technique at lighter weight and fewer reps rather than just throwing weight up and see if I can do it. Thankfully I did not get injured or drop (iron) weights on anything in the garage. “Ego is dangerous”
Some times I gain more mentally than physically from workouts. So it is not a bad thing.
