Poly split jerk
  • Overhead squat - 65% (of snatch) x 3 x 5; 3 sec pause in bottom
  • Tall snatch - 3 x 3; find weight that allows good speed and sharp turnover
  • High-hang snatch - 60% x 2 x 4
3 sets; no rest:
300 m row
3 rope climbs

On tall snatches and high-hang snatches, focus on immediate and aggressive pull under with the arms, keeping the elbows out to the sides; don't focus on shrugging.

Greg,
Put one of your link graphics up on our site. 2 things:

1. Had to change the IMG url to an absolute to get the image to display.
2. I don't think you closed the anchor on any of the code.

cheers,

Greg, I have two questions. 1- What does the rep scheme "Power Snatch + OHS 2x2(1+1)" exactly mean? I can't figure out how many of which lift I'm supposed to do. 2- Say during the cycle I hit a new PR, should I plug that new max into the calculated numbers on Excel?

Greg,

Going to have to miss lifting today. Do you suggest that I do Friday and Saturday lifts on Saturday Sunday? The next few weeks will be hit and miss for me due to some vacation time and family activities so I am trying to fit in all that I can.

Thanks again for the advice and excellent coaching/programming!

Had to miss Wed & today's training. Was unloading and moving tonnes (literally 4.5 tonnes) of kettlebells & dumbbells.

Looking forward to tomorrow though.

Hey Greg,

What can I substitute for rope climb?

Thanks for the workouts, this is my first week to follow one of your strength cycles. I was at Blackbox Summit and heard you speak.

Charlie - Hang a towel over a pull-up bar. Grab it with one hand above the other and do a pull-up that brings your chin above the lower hand; switch hands; repeat. Do 6-8 for each rope climb.

Is there NO bending in knees and hips when doing high-hang snatch?

Bjorn - There is bending in both. If there were none, it would be a tall snatch. Check out the "exercises" link at the top of the page for videos/descriptions of both exercises.

I have removed the 'other metcon only, poor form in the lifts but we don't care as long as people get faster times' site from my bookmarks. I never go anyways and it's just a bunch of political articles that are angry.

PM forever :)
