Aimee clean
Tuesday January 11 2011

  • Warm-up series - 2 snatch long pull + 2 overhead squat + 2 Sots press x 4 sets
  • Snatch segment pull (1", knee, hip,finish) + snatch - (2+1) x 3 sets
  • Snatch - 70% x 3 x 5
  • Snatch pull - 80%x3, 85%x3, 90%x3
  • Snatch push press + OHS - 5 x 2+1
Feel out a weight for the snatch segment pulls + snatch. This should be lighter than your segment pull + pull from earlier in the cycle. For snatch push press + OHS, add weight from week 3.

Is it just me, or does Aimee seem to jump forward a couple inches on most of her reps? Is this ideal? I've read that, if anything, it's better to move backwards slightly. Thoughts?

LP - It is not ideal to jump forward, but it's an old habit of Aimee's that she's working to correct.

On the Snatch push press + OHS what does the 2+1 mean? I am new to your site. Thanks

Snatch Push Press + OHS: 5 x 2 + 1 This means 5 sets of 2 Snatch Push Press plus 1 OHS without putting the bar down.

Of course, you can put the bar down between sets. Just not between the Push Press and the OHS. Sorry.
