10 PVC Around the Worlds (Left and Right)
3 sets (Empty Bar or PVC)
10 Dynamic Squat Stretch
5 Muscle Snatch
5 Snatch Push Press
5 Overhead Squats

2. Skill Work
Athletes will be working up in weight this week to a heavy 2-snatch grip push press (back rack) + 1 snatch balance in 5 working sets. This aims to build strength and confidence in a snatch’s overhead/receiving position. Bars can be taken from the rig, but athletes should step back far enough so that the bar won’t be dropped into the rig if the lift is missed. Demo the correct way to bail from a snatch balance both forward and backward. If athletes cannot get overhead squats due to mobility restrictions, you should have them push press + push jerk from the back rack.
