Travis snatch
  • Warm-up series - 2 snatch long pull + 2 snatch push press + 2 overhead squats - 4 sets
  • Power snatch + OHS + snatch (2 sec pause in bottom) - 5 sets
  • Push press + jerk behind neck + jerk (5 sec hold in split) - 5 sets
  • Jerk dip squat - 5 x 3
3 sets; no rest:
A1. Weighted back extension x 10
A2. Weighted planks - front/side x 10 sec hold

Week 1 of 11

Weights this week should be a challenge, but definitely not maximal for any of the sets. Jerk dip squat should be around 80-100% of your best jerk. Position must be perfect.

Do we link the individual lifts consecutively in each set, as in the warmup? If so, are your athletes using 1 weight for each set, or are they changing weights for each individual exercise within the set?
Cain Morano 2010-12-13
I dig the warm up series! I did a mixed series on Friday night with 65 pounds, followed by the snatch and c&j (60% to 100% of past max). I think some of them need more weight, like the jerk series (Push press + jerk behind neck + jerk) would be better with 95, just because that move feels better with something pushing back. But I like the range of motion and continuity of these barbell complexes. I saw more technical weaknesses with the complexes than with the classic lifts.

Schon - If I understand your question correctly, yes, those are complexes. E.g. on the first one, you would do 1 power snatch, keep the bar overhead and do 1 OHS, lower the bar to the floor and do 1 snatch; that would constitute one set. So you would use a single weight.
Greg Everett 2010-12-13
Cain - The weight is up to you. With that complex, you should certainly be able to go heavier than with one involving a Sots press, for example. When I say light, I'm not referring to any specific numbers. In some cases, like the one you point out, 95 lbs is very light.

Thanks for the clarification on the complexes.
Also, can the Performance Menu be given as a gift or does the end user have to set up an account?

Schon - If you want to give it as a gift, purchase it in your name and then just email us to change the subscriber account info.
