Monday, August 14, 2017 - Snatch and Jerk Technique

The intent of today is to address the snatch (lack of finishing the pull and slow speeds under the barbell) and jerk (weak legs in jerk and lack of proper technique getting under jerk quickly). Loads can be kept in ranges as prescribed, with the last section (9min EMOM) being performed with first exercise in first minute, second exercise in second minute, and so on for a total of 9 minutes.

If you are interested in receiving both workouts every week, as well as an additional WOD (a total of 3 per week), you can SUBSCRIBE HERE to receive all Weightlifting WODs in advanced before each week.
