Practising for the grading tonight with some long cycle technique work. Started with 2 sets of 20x cleans focusing on breathing then did 2 sets of 5 reps of jerks pausing for 10 seconds in rack, second dip and overhead lockout. Moved on to 2 sets of 10x jerks concentrating on correct breathing. Finished by putting it all together for a 5 minute set. Some impressive numbers and a big improvement visible in technique and performance when the correct breathing was used. Good work everyone. Let's hope we can repeat if not better the competition results from February when we go to Ireland in August.
