1. Movement Prep/Activation and Increasing Heart Rate
Tabata Assault Bike (8 sets)
* 20 seconds (moderate/10 seconds (recovery) *
– into –
3-4 sets (10:00 time cap)
10 PVC Pass Throughs
5 Snatch Grip Deadlifts
5 High Hang Muscle Snatch
5 Snatch Push Press
5 Power Snatch

2. Strength Prep
Athletes have a 10 min EMOM of 5 touch-and-go Power Snatch. Weight should feel comfortable as we will be building on the weight established this week over the next few weeks. Athletes should utilize a strong power position when receiving the bar (even if muscle snatch is possible with lightweight). Starting feet wider than the normal “jumping position” and staying there throughout these reps will allow faster cycling time than resetting the feet with each rep. Focus is on a smooth pull, catching a good 2in dip, and transitioning right back down. After a slight pause at the top of the rep, we want a controlled transition back down to the floor.
– Athletes should look to increase weight from the last cycle (5lbs) if they breezed through the reps. Don’t add weight if it risks failure, form, or uneasiness through the 5 reps.

3. Workout Prep
2 sets:
4 Back Squats (build-in weight/ practice transition from ground-to-front rack-to-back rack)
