Workout of the Day

FITNESS
A. Power snatch + Below-the-knee power snatch + Above-the-knee power snatch – pause 1s in receiving position on each rep
4x(1+1+1); Rest 60-90s

Training notes:
-Hang onto the bar between reps.
-Pausing in the receiving position will help you internalize a good catch. If you don’t pause or if you struggle to pause, you’re probably doing something sketchy when you catch the bar and you should prioritize fixing it.

Record weight lifted for the complex – and record all weights used in training notes.

B. Front squat
3×3; Building; Rest 2 min

Training notes:
-Each set should be a working set – so don’t count sets that are not at least a 7/10 on degree of difficulty.

Record weight lifted.

C. 10 min:
45s rear-foot elevated split squats, right (unloaded)
45s rear-foot elevated split squats, left (unloaded)
1 min double KB deadlifts

Training notes:
-This is lower body muscle endurance and accessory work. Maintain good positions, but the goal is to feel the burn.

Record total reps completed for each movement in training notes.

PERFORMANCE
