Dan and the 6pm pack assaulting through the Elizabeth Benchmark…

Warm-up Drills
I. Jump Rope
II. Coach’s Choice
III. Dynamic & Static Mobility

Impact/Focus: Power Snatch + Overhead Squat (10 x :75)
Complete the following 1 x Power Snatch + 1 x Overhead Squat workload every :75 for 10 rounds total.

10 Rounds x Every :75 seconds
Complete the following

1 x Power Snatch
+
1 x Overhead Squat

Notes: Utilize weights today that facilitate movement development and competency in two levels of priority (70-80% working ranges for today’s sets would be challenging at tempo). First we will be working to establish the relationship between full and power movements as well as footwork facilitating the Overhead Squat. Additional Drills for hip hinge value and pulling under the bar after completing the second pull will also be addressed building on established progress from previous training.
Each class will work through PVC & Barbell Snatch Drills and Warm-up sets; Footwork regarding Power Snatch to Overhead Squat and the intent for bar placement during the Oly Lift portion.
Adjusting weights up or down during the EMOTM (:75) to reinforce training priorities will be encouraged.

“Elizabeth”
Complete 21-15-9 reps for time of
Clean (135/95)
Ring Dips

Notes: This is a Benchmark workout.
Noted via this excerpt regarding Full vs. Power Cleans;
— “Elizabeth is a classic benchmark that should be completed relatively quickly. It can be performed with either squat cleans or power cleans. Decide which technique you’ll use before you start, then stick with it. Go lighter on the cleans and modify the ring dips so you can complete the work in fewer than 10 minutes.”
Scaling options will be covered during the whiteboard brief.

Get some, freaks!
