Impact/Focus: Snatch
Warm-up sets of 3 reps, touch and go, full squat movement; build to a starting weight above at 60% or heavier (For those without specific numbers to begin with today; ‘starting weight’ should be moderately challenging with solid technique and a complete range of motion per full Snatch movement standards.

Three Rounds on the 2:00 of
3-3-3 x Snatch
**touch and go, climb weight each set.

Five Rounds on the 2:00
1-1-1-1-1 x Snatch
**climb for the first two rounds, repeat best single weight for final three intervals.

Notes:

  • Regarding Three rep rounds; climb heavier from warm-up sets through these intervals.
