Just curious, what's a prowler sprint? Couldn't find it in the exercise description & video section. Thanks.
Scott Pauly 2010-01-05

Muscle snatch - 40kg x 3 x 3

Clean & jerk - 80kg x 2 x 5

3 sets; no rest:
6 1-arm DB power snatch 50lb DB(per side)
6 weighted pull-ups: 16kg, 20kg, 24kg

Greg what gives? Clean and Jerks felt like a ton, I kept the weight there but reduced the volume, also is the Prowler worth the investment?

Scott - You're nearing the end of a heavy training cycle - you're tired.Prowler is worth it in my opinion. You can get the econ prowler from elite fts for a good price. no need to get the uber model.
Greg Everett 2010-01-05
Scott F - Prowler is a three-runner sled that you can push while sprinting. You can sub sled drags at a quick clip or if you have neither, you can sprint unladen.

Hey Greg, do you have any suggestions for a beginner olympic lifting program? I've been lifting weights for about 3-4 years now more bodybuilding style and have jumped onto this site and been doing the WOD's for about a month or so and am starting to get burned out a bit. I made the switch because I am getting into Pro WRestling soon and thought this would be the best way to do .
Greg Everett 2010-01-05
Alexander - There is a beginner program in my book, or you can check out the basic template on mikesgym.org for another good beginner training program.
Alexander Miezin 2010-01-05

Thanks a lot for responding, especially so fast. I am gonna finish up this training cycle then do that program most likely. I ordered your book a week or so ago and am awaiting snail mail to deliver it . Can't wait to start reading!

Jake Rubash 2010-01-05

quick question regarding my technique on the snatch, specifically the double knee bend/ scoop portion. My legs seem to completely straighten and the rebend doesn't occur until just before i extend my hips. This creates a separation between the bar and my thighs. This video sort of illustrates my problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtBdPJypsBI (WFS) Any input and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Jake - That's when the rebend should occur - it's a result of you extending your hips. The problem is just that you push your knees back to much too soon and straighten them too much. You have to keep your chest up as you extend the knees in the first pull and try to keep your back angle about the same until the bar hits about mid-thigh and you fire off that second pull. At mid-thigh, your shins should be about vertical, but your knees should still be slightly bent - they should never extend completely until the end of the second pull. along with the hips.
