Split jerks and more general strength work

I started off Thursday morning with the goal of going up in weight, it was challenging.
The WOD:
Split jerks 80 lbs
Sumo deadlift high pulls 55 lb kettlebell
Double unders (I did singles x 3)
Time: 18:17
The split jerks were the hardest part of this WOD, it wasn't so bad throwing the weight up, the hard part was bring it back down onto my shoulders and feeling like 80 lbs was heavy after the first 10 reps!  I did finish it though and did have to take some mini-breaks.  Surprisingly, the sumo deadlift high pulls were not that difficult, I think 55 lbs is finally becoming "light" for me!  I might even have to consider moving up on the weight! 

After work, I worked on my bench press (75 lbs x 5 reps x 5 sets), dips (3/2 reps x 4 sets), and did a variety of assisted pullups and negative pullups.  I also worked on my front squats with the full squat/then two half squats (getting up halfway, pausing and going back down) at 75 lbs.  And finally did some bar work to practice the movement for cleans and snatches.  Drills, drills, drills!
