Light One

I intentionally took today a little easier.  It felt like a good day to pull back a bit.  I did:

KB Presses: 5/5 x 12k, 16k, 20k; 2/2x24k; 5/5 x 20k, 20k
One Arm Swings: 8/8 x 16k, 20k, 24k, 24k, 24k
Chins: 1
Renegade Rows: 5/5 x 20k, 24k, 20k
Push Ups: 8
Flat Bench: 5 x 45, 95

I'm going to start switching the snatches up with swings and high pulls to vary my workouts.  I feel like I need to strengthen my foundation with the basics if I'm going to make more progress on the snatches.  I tried the chins to see if I can rep them yet, the answer is no.

The push ups were a bit of a dissapointment, as was the bench.  I stopped the push ups when my bad shoulder started to hurt.  The set of 5 reps with 95 on bench, my shoulder was clicking and popping for all of them.  It is frustrating to have spent so much time and money trying to rehab it, to have progressed so far on all my other lifts, and then to have it be so problematic with simple flat pressing.  I could push through it and lift quite a bit more weight, but that just seems like a bad idea.  I guess I keep on working around the problem for now.
