Tom sandbag half moon
  • Snatch balance - max for day; 70% of that x 3 x 4
  • Power snatch + snatch - 75% (of power snatch) x 1+1 x 5 sets; 2 min rest
4 sets:
3 box jumps - max height for reps/sets
12 kipping pull-ups
100 m run
1 min rest

Notes: On power snatch + snatch, focus on an aggressive turnover and securing the bar overhead as high and as quickly as possible; the turnover and height at which the bar is fixed overhead should be the same for the power snatch and following snatch, with adjustments for fatigue. That is, turn the bar over as high as possible and sit into the squat immediately. On box jumps, focus on extending the knees and hips maximally before lifting the feet rather than simply reaching for the box with hip flexion; attempt to drop down onto the box softly.
