Sheesh if that doesn't make someone want to get their squat numbers up.....then again there are some though rare HS'ers that kick my ass in just about every powerlifting lift too...sigh.

Now that the snow is gone I can lift outside and drop the weights, so I can do heavier C+J and snatches than I can inside. Anyway, in this program can I power clean and power snatch the lighter sets? Or should I catch it in a squat? Or maybe I shouldn't ask so many questions and just do it. I'd really like to hear what Dan John's student do.

Thanks /Brian

Shaf and I were out at Juan Diego back in late January, oh my.
Though the Murray Institute is still my favorite. Snow on the ground
as a training aid.

Secret. Do the Big 21 with squats,benches, hang cleans, deads....

I just spread it out over the work week. Great way to get back into any
lift that has been hiding in the closet. Since I lift alone, I don't have to suffer the humiliation of anybody watching what my sub,sub,sub, max is.

Scott, you can find the muscle snatch (as well as a TON of other useful lifting videos) here:
