3 Squat Snatch @ 75%

2 Squat Snatch @ 80%

Rest only as long as it takes to adjust loads

These should all be done as quick singles

Big cues to think about today are smooth off the floor, then fast finish through the hips. The goal with the Snatch is to develop full body coordination and a strong connection from the legs, through the midline, then powerful overhead. Work a strong lockout position today and finish strong.

Back Squat

1 x 20 reps

Adding 3-5 kg more than what you completed last week. For a guide in percentage you should be around 70% of your 5-rep max Back Squat. We’re getting up to significantly heavy territory here. This is where you start really finding the benefits of the program. Remember, these reps need to be completed unbroken. Please take your time building up to the desired working load. You want to ensure you prepare your body and mind properly for the load you need to complete. Remember also, these reps don’t have to be fast. Break the 20 reps into small chunks doing sets of 3-4 reps at a time then giving yourself a break at the top. It is obviously a lot of time under tension but we find when you subconsciously change the mindset to a set of 3-4 reps over a set of 20 reps it can help you work through the set better and stay more engaged.

Bench Press

1 x 4 @ 80%
