As I’d hit 5 x 5 decided to test myself with the 24kg.
I did 5 left which went up pretty easy & could have ground out another one or two. The right hand however, the 5th rep was a real grind out & I only just got it & the form was not great.
This is a bit odd as doing the ladders my right side was definitely the stronger. I am right handed also.
So onto the snatch test wwith the 16kg. I did 10L 10R rest, new set on top of each minute. The aim was to get 200 in the 10 minutes. I started off well, but at set 7 the pain really hit. In the end I hit 180snatches in 10min. Mildly annoying as I’d set a 200 goal before moving up to the 20kg for snatches.
The odd thing here, is bearing in mind the press results I noticed my snatch cadence is massively faster with the right hand than the left and it feels much stronger.
So here is a question, I am now going to start ladders with the 24kg. Now swings – do people tend to match what they press with or should I stick with the 20kg. I feel I can get more out of the 20kg as my grip is definitely the weak point.
