Today we are going to work on some strength lifts that compliment one another.

Snatch

3-3-3-3-3

Snatch grip deadlifts

3-3-3-3-3

Start with a few nice easy warm up reps, then start loading your bar up, progressing in weight up until your fifth set which should be very close to failure if not at failure.

We last did Snatch strength on 7-23-09 where we did 7 single reps - snatch grip deads we have not done as a strength building movement, but have had it in a few WOD'S.

Alas... I am inexperienced with the snatch. I have seen some beautiful snatches, but have never mastered it myself. Whenever I ask someone to teach me how to work the snatch, I usually get a slap in the face. Story of my life. Bummed that my work schedule won't allow me to get in the gym today.

Alena said...

Ha Travis you have just not had the right coach in the attaining of the snatch. :-)

47.5 on snatch (mental block)
110 on snatch grip deads
