    I felt it in my hands straight afterwards, but the 10mins went well. My technique has improved letting the swing provide the momentum rather than forcing the mace. I did 10 mins of 360s this morning and will do 10 mins of 10-2s tomorrow. Just playing around with it at the moment. When I have time I'll try 30mins A&A style repeats. I read you are making a heavier gada.

    DKBFS: 5 x 3 (2×24kg)
    Bent arm bar : x 3 each side

    My left shoulder feels better so brought the bent press back in, just an easy session.

    My last 2 sessions have reminded me why I love the bent press and A&A snatches, both massive bang for your buck.

    2x24kg front squats started to feel to easy so upped the weight to 2x32kg. My form feels good, but a bit more of a grind as expected with the heavier weight.
    Something going on with my left shoulder in the bent press, so had a few days off it, time to check my technique on the left side.

    The bent press felt much better on my left side, I concentrated on the palm of my hand facing forwards, also 3 rounds of arm bars to bent arm bars to bent arm bar press helped prepare my shoulder . Ill continue with these before bent pressing.

    A+A snatches 32kg: 22 x 5 repeats
    Had to stop at 22 repeats as I tore a callous on my left hand, it a shame as I felt like I could have hit 30 repeats. Apart from the tear, this was my best snatch session, I concentrated on driving my feet into the ground on the upswing which caused the bell to fly up. I felt it in my legs afterwards.

    I started this session quite late and tired, so curtailed the bent press at 3 repeats.
    J was due to do A&A snatches but they would have been sloppy due to feeling tired so left them for another day.

    Stopped at 8 x 2 btp due to a deteriation of stability in my left shoulder when rising in the overhead position. My right side was fine and could have completed the 10 sets. I need work on keeping the shoulder locked on my left side.

    Maybe you should give the Cook drill a try. It always helps me when shoulder girdle / neck issues raise their heads. That and bent armbars which you already do.

    That's a great idea, I'll start doing cook drills. Thanks.
