Thanks for the reminder I was looking for something I could do with my athletes to complete our pratice.
Mike T. 2010-10-21
I plan on hitting these cleans off the blocks again, to continue working on my 2nd/3rd pull and to continue prehabbing/working around my lower back/hip issue. If anyone thinks that's a bad idea I'm open to criticism. I also enjoy using slashes, apparently.

What do you mean by: snatch "balance"?

Steve S. 2010-10-21
Clean - (135#; 150#; 160#) x3
Max Drop Snatch - 115#

15 pull-ups
10 Clean & Press/arm @ 25# (because I misread)
Greg Everett 2010-10-21
Jeroen - I mean the exercise snatch balance. Check the exercise demos section of the site if you don't know what it is.

thank you greg.

I think we call it a "drop under", it seems to be the same

Snatch Balance-185#

15 Pull ups
10 KB Clean & P.Press/arm (24kg)
*Greg- Great conditioning set. I totally didn't see it coming. Those KB C&P's kicked my 135# ass all over the gym.

clean: 130#, 140#, 150.5#

butterfly kips, 1.5 pood

snatch balance:
Worked up to 160#, but most of my heavier singles looked more like snatch grip push jerks with overhead squats. Also worked up to 125# in snatch drop.
Mike T. 2010-10-22
Clean from the blocks: 80, 85, 90
Snatch Balance: 120

Dipped out on metcon b/c I had to pick someone up at the airport. I think I could have pushed 130 on snatch balance, my previous pr, but was happy to hit 120.

On the (60, 65, 70)x3 rep schemes, do you rest between lifts inside the parentheses?

Ian - Yes - Perform those as you would any other sets.
