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. Thanks.
Greg Everett 2 | 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.

the KB sn is it 4 reps on each arm or 8 reps each arm... cross chops same question 6&6 or 12 & 12? Thanks
Greg Everett 5 | 2008-01-29
For one-side work, the reps are always the total between the two sides - so 4 + 4 and 6 + 6.

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.

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.

1/29/08 M/38/174 As Rx'd PC+PJ+J 185# T. SN 25,45,55,65,75 This was really hard to do pshycologically without bending the knees. I've never even imagined such a movement. Metcon 35# DB 28# Ball 37" bench jumps (tallest in my living room) 45# Chops Total time including 1min rest was 3:57 That was pretty cheesy compared to the crossfit stuff. Recovery Drink: 50 ounce Frozen fruit smoothie with 3 eggs, 5 tsp olive oil, 1/2 cup blueberries, Mixed fruits, and Grape juice. Fuel: 1 handful pecans and pistachios 1 handful grapes 1 BBQ chicken leg 1 grapefruit med. 1 can smoked herring 1 large porkchop 1 ziplock baggie full of pecans and pistachios w/shells 3 cubes of beef 1 orange Vitamins: C, E and 6 fish oil caps

C&J complex: 100x4 Tall snatch: 55x5x2 3 rds: 30# DB snatch (BW is 180 but scaled because I'm coming off an involuntary layoff due to moving) 5 ball slams 20# (don't have a heavier ball) TOTAL 2:31 Rest 3 rds: 5 tuck jumps (a poor substitute; haven't had time to build boxes) 35# KB cross chops 6L/6R TOTAL: 2:12
John Frazer 20 | 2008-01-30
P.S. Totally agree about the weirdness of the tall snatch. Would find myself standing there puzzled how to avoid bending my knees.
