Looks like all the squats have been paying off for those of you who have been following for the last month or so. I saw and heard a lot of good numbers. Remember to post your weight and scores for the conditioning piece to the comments section. We do look at those and it helps us determine how everyone is doing. For those of you that are new and are still dialing in proper technique be patient. Your time will come to shine. Remember, mechanics, consistency, & intensity.
Many of you met Brenden today and it just so happens that he was due for a heavy back squat sessions so he squeezed it in while some of you were doing the “Death by 10 Meters”. The kid knows how to perform. Here is Brenden hitting a 405lb squat for a PR.
5 snatch deadlifts-10 lb plate
5 Power snatches- 10 lb plate
5 Hang Power Snatch- 10 lb plate
-Rest 30 sec between each rounds.
*Make sure you pick a bar that isn’t too heavy when you add the 10lb plates. This should be light.
Hang Power Snatch:
5,3,5,3,5,3, – Rest 30-60 sec between sets.
*If you are new to Olympic Lifting do level 1 and work on figuring out how to generate upward momentum on the bar. Don’t worry about going heavy.
*The Olympic lift is based primarily on simple concept: Generate momentum and elevation on the barbell. This momentum is generated by a violent vertical extension of the legs and hips

Power Snatch :
