What To Do When You Can’t Snatch

Yesterday I ignored what my body was trying to tell me and I kind of tweaked my knee doing squats.  I don’t think it’s a bad injury but for once, I’m going to try to be an adult and lay off of it for a day (or two).

Does this mean couch time? Nay nay!!!  Just because I don’t want to load my knee while flexed doesn’t mean I’m throwing a pity party for one.  It just means doing other stuff for a bit that in truth I should probably be doing more of anyway.

So today was putting all my joints through a full ROM (mobility work, yay!!!), then half an hour of handstand practice which I’m convinced will help my torso stability under load (sound like a jerk to you? Yeah, it did me, too).  Then a little triceps and ab work.  Because I’m incapable of being in a gym and doing nothing for lower body, I did some reverse hyper sets.  A loaded back and booty is a happy back and booty.  Or maybe that’s just me.
