C. Barbell Bent R
Weight: 30kg

The overhead squats were new to me, it was the balance / control  of the bar that I struggled with more than the squatting, though having my arms overhead tightened up my hamstrings good and proper. Anyway, as we were working from the floor, it meant I had to get the bar up, so there was some bonus snatch work too, another first.

I'm still a little off with the timing of my cleans, as we got heavy I wasn't moving under the bar as well/fast. So, on the heaviest rep I coached myself on getting back down and under the bar... only to almost lose the bar at the bottom because my back wasn't set. Still I took that bar from the bottom of the hole I was in, and squatted it back up to standing and a nice little PB.

PMPW: 90kg
