Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

I’m going to make this entry short and sweet.





Sorry. Anyways, I forgot to blog my snatch practice videos!!! So here they are:


I am trying to learn how to squat snatch. It’s such an awkward lift to me… Working on it.

I think Ben said “Good Pull” after I fell on my butt. So that’s good. He was holding the PVC pipe there to keep me from pushing the bar away from me. I am not so great at keeping it close yet. And my balance is pretty sucky. Obviously. In my defense, I was pretty dang tired at that point.

I think forgot to mention it, but this month’s “Excercise of the Month” is wall sits. For 5 minutes a day. I’m at 100 minutes already, so hopefully I will be done with this nonsense if the very near future.

    I struggle so much with the hand position on the snatch, and am already developing some subtle callouses on my thumbs. I don’t know what that part is called.. but I’m assuming you know what I’m talking about.
    Hope you and your kinda-sorta-dating-boyfriend have an awesome paleotastic Valentine’s Day πŸ˜‰ And no mushy posts. K, thanks. πŸ˜‰

      Haha! i’ll make sure to leave mush out πŸ˜‰ I can’t wait to find out what the couples WOD is going to be though. I will definitely be blogging that!

      And yeah, I used to have to tape my thumbs till I built up good enough calluses. And I think i need to try a narrower snatch grip. ALWAYS hook grip on a snatch (which I’m assuming you already know because of the thumbs) Happy V Day!!!
