Weightlifting: 5 sets: 1 Snatch Liftoff, 1 Snatch Pull, 1 Squat Snatch (Build from 60% to a heavy)
Today we will be spending 15-20 minutes working on breaking down the lift from the bottom up and then tieing it into a full snatch. For the liftoff, we want to ensure that we pull the slack out of the bar, shoulders tight but arms loose and drive with our legs down into the ground through the middle of our foot. We should see no torso movement here. We will follow that by completing the second portion, passing the knees, pulling our chest tall and getting vertical extension. Finally we will complete the snatch, catching as low as possible.
12 Deadlifts (bodyweight)
21 Box Jumps 24″/20″
Classic bench mark workout – we should be able to complete the deadlifts unbroken, while slow and steady with minimal breaks on the box jumps.
