Be sure to do your ten minutes of pre-class dynamic flexibility work.

1. Technique review: 7 positions of the muscle snatch, 8 positions of the power snatch and the snatch

2. Ten minutes deliberate practice of the positions of the snatch.

3. Strength:

  • Muscle snatch 1-1-1-1
  • Power snatch 1-1-1-1
  • Snatch 1-1-1-1

Start each new exercise with the heaviest weight of the last. If you can’t snatch, use power snatch + overhead squat. If you can’t OHS, do 10 power snatches. If you can’t power snatch, practice your muscle-snatch. If you can’t go overhead, use clean variations instead.

4. “Victoria”


  • Power snatch
  • Ring dips

For load, use average of first and second power snatch efforts.

LIII: as rx’d

LII: muscle or power snatch as appropriate; box, bar, or ring dips as appropriate.

LI: 3 x 5 muscle snatch and box dips, 2 x 5 MS and BD, 1 x 5 MS and BD, not for time

Have fun!
