How much was that snatch in the video? Looks easy... even if you seem to be mentally preparing for it during most of the clip. :)

I've done worse snatches, but you need to keep a tight arc in the back and finish the pull. And put more weight on the bar :D .

Technique looks fine, put more weight on the bar.

Nice GHR'ing!! I can barely do 1 without cramping up...

Oh, and nice squatting

GHR's are one of my most hated, but also favourite (in an odd way) things to do.

I have been given a job up in my home town of Tamworth, starting in February next year. I've been living in Newcastle for 6 years now, so I think it will be a bit of an adjustment moving back home. I will be living at home with my parents, so that will be interesting. The longest I've stayed there since moving to Newcastle was a few weeks when I had a placement there, so I wonder how I'll handle living there permanently again. The job is for 12 months, so I'm not sure what I'll do afterwards. Might try and work somewhere overseas for a while. I'm sure I will be saving loads of money next year.

I need to find a gym too. As far as I know, none of the gyms have bumpers or platforms, so I might have to just stick to powerlifting. None of them have good power racks either, unless things have changed.. maybe I'll see if I can buy some plates, a bar, rack and bench to use at home. Maybe dad can lift with me.. Hmmm

Thanks JP. Pressing strength feels good lately.

I've been thinking of taking John Broz's advice and squatting every day, up to a daily max, then lots of back-off sets of 2-3 reps. Same with strict press or push press. I seem to respond well to squatting very often, with a lot of volume, as opposed to only once or twice a week. I also seem to recover really quickly from overhead pressing.. Plus lifting heavy is way more fun than mucking around with light weights.

Would be interested to see how you go with this.
I tried squatting everyday for a month but I made 2 crucial mistakes, so the results really arent worth recapping.
I simply didn't eat enough for the extra hard work...
Also going to a max all the time I picked up the habit of grinding them out in true goodmorning fashion which was no good for my knees and back.

So yeah, I recommend a spotter/training partner to keep you injury free with your form and lots more food for the extra work!

Good luck moving back in with the 'rents; The wife and I did it out of necessity a while back, it was fine for the most part but did get a bit intense in parts...

I'd love to get my Dad lifting with me! Unfortunately he's build for comfort not power...

Mum and Dad are awesome cooks, plus the house is super nice so it should be good. It's only Mum and Dad there now, so I'm sure I'll have privacy.

Dad used to lift when he was at uni, but then I guess I came along and then my two sisters, so it became less of a priority I guess. Would be great if he could start again with me.
