Can someone tell me the RX'd weight for the "Tall Snatch".
Also, Is this just a snatch performed in the same manner as the "Tall clean".

I found all the other exercises in the Demos section.

Greg Everett 2008-01-28
Feel out a weight you're able to be very fast and precise with for doubles. Technique is the priority over weight.
mike 2008-01-29

Metcon subbed tuck jumps

josh everett 2008-01-29
the KB sn is it 4 reps on each arm or 8 reps each arm... cross chops same question 6&6 or 12 & 12?
Greg Everett 2008-01-29
For one-side work, the reps are always the total between the two sides - so 4 + 4 and 6 + 6.
josh everett 2008-01-29

Dr. G 2008-01-29
Only did the OL work today, saving the metcon for tomorrow.

Joint mobility + scapular stability
Ext. Mod. Burgener w/u, 3 reps with both pipe and 15kg bar

Sets done on 4 minute intervals
Power Clean + Push Jerk + Jerk x 4 sets(80% of max PC): 70kg x 4 sets, I have no idea what my max PC is, this weight was about all I could manage to overhead with my really sore triceps--locking out the jerks was really tough because of that factor
Tall Snatch (5 x 2 med. wt., emphasize speed & technique): 29kg, stayed really light to keep it snappy

Tomorrow will be some sort of metcon in the morning and gymnastics class at night. If my triceps start to recover, I'm thinking of doing Grace as the metcon. I always have done it with squat cleans, I want to try it with power cleans.
Craig Snyder 2008-01-29
PC-PJ-J 105# x4
Tall Snatch 45x2 65x2, 55 3x2

3 rounds:
8 1 arm DB snatch (30 lbs)
5 Ball slams (15 lbs) 1:43

3 rounds:
subbed 5 max standing vertical jumps
12 cross chops (35 lbs) 2:30

The clean and jerks seemed to go ok. I am unsure about the tall snatch. I have never done those and tried to figure them out from the video on the site. As far as I can tell, I did them right, but we will never know for sure.

Tall snatch: 55x5x2

P.S. Totally agree about the weirdness of the tall snatch. Would find myself standing there puzzled how to avoid bending my knees.
