Cleans, snatches & more cleans @ CFD

Finally made it to the Olympic Lifting class at CFD!

Power cleans:
85# x 3
95# x 3, 3, 3
105# x 3 (PR!)
115# f, f

Hang power snatches:
65 x 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

Met con:
AMRAP in 7 minutes, where round n=n power cleans + 3n push-ups
I got partway through round 7 (7 cleans + 9 push-ups).
I did the last rounds of push-ups on my knees. 29 total on toes, 34 on knees.

Notes:
I bet I could have cleaned 115# if I'd had a little more focus, and a few less nerves. Still, 105# is 10# heavier than my old PR, and it didn't feel too bad at all!
Push-ups were definitely the killer on the met con... at least other strong people in the class were complaining about them too!

what did you think of the power snatches? have you done regular snatches before?

These were tough - not so much weight-wise as balance-wise. So much coordination required when you put that bar over your head in a split second! Fun though. I've done snatches once or twice before this... once was at the classic CFHQ down in Santa Cruz!
