Saturday- October 7, 2017- Week Two- Day Six

Snatch: Work up to a heavy single for the day.

Clean and jerk: Work up to a heavy single for the day.

Front Squat: Work up to a heavy single for the day.

*Heavy single for the day does not necessarily mean that you will hit a one rep max! Learn how to become a self sufficient athlete who is in tune with his/her body! If you feel great, put some weight on the bar and lift heavy! If your body is feeling tired from life or the past week of training, BE SMART and keep the weight light and work consistency through your sets. As my dad always says, “If the kettle’s hot, do the cooking!”.

1. Snatch Pull+Power Snatch: 3x(2+2), 2x(2+1), 2x(1+1). Take small jumps, but move up in weight each set. Remember that a power snatch is a missed snatch!! That means that your mechanics on a power snatch are the same as a snatch! Just because you are receiving the bar high, does not mean that you’re not pulling your body under the bar. Pull your body down and around the bar and put on the breaks!
