What is the % for the OH Sqt based on? Thanks, new to the site as of a few weeks ago and like it very much.
Greg Everett 2 | 2010-08-30
Adam - Off your best OHS. If you don't know what that is, take it off your best snatch.
Sam 3 | 2010-08-30
Are kb snatches instead of sandbag snatches ok?
Greg Everett 4 | 2010-08-30
Sam - Yes, but even better would be dumbbell muscle snatches.
marcus 5 | 2010-08-30
How about a weight estimate for the sandbags or DB's? Or better- are we looking for lighter-faster or heavier-slower?
Greg Everett 6 | 2010-08-30
Marcus - Aim for a weight that barely allows you to do all reps without resting each round.

Power snatch - 80% x 1 x 4 83lb x 1 x 4 Power clean + power jerk - 80% (of PC) x 1 x 4 123lb x 1 x 4 - felt heavy. Overhead squat - 80% x 1; 70% x 2 x 2 103lb x 1, 88lb x 2 x 2 Again ran out of time for assistance work. Got about 10 strict pull ups in. Will be allocating more time for these workouts.

WU- 600yds jog, joint mobility, snatch progression with 35# bar, 10x 65# muscle snatch PSn= 125# PC&J= 140# (Should have gone with 150#) OHS= 135#; 125# (Really noticed the tweak in my left wrist on these, made that whole side weak and wobbly.) I used a 40# bag and the 4 rounds took me 4:10. Have a great day!
Laurie 10 | 2010-08-31
Do the pull ups need to be strict or can I kip?
Greg Everett 11 | 2010-08-31
Laurie - Preferably strict, but kip if you need to.

nice plates who manufactured them? how long have you had those in your facilities?
Greg Everett 13 | 2010-08-31
The plates are made by Muscle Driver USA. We just got them a few weeks ago, but so far super nice. We sell them, and can get custom printing done on them.
